A video uploaded to facebook Monday shows what low levels police will sink to in order to generate revenue.

The Somerville Police Department has devised an ingenious method for catching dangerous criminals.

Advertisment

It is against the law to enter a crosswalk while there is someone crossing the road.

Obviously a driver can drive through a crosswalk while simultaneously remaining cautious and being aware of pedestrians. But where would all this extra revenue come from?

Somerville police are using undercover crosswalkers to set up questionable traps at crosswalks throughout the town.

The undercover just walks back and forth in the crosswalk all day long, while the unit pulls over the unsuspecting “criminals” to issue a citation.

What do you think? Is this really protecting and serving?

    I can’t believe that these cops have so much free time on their hands that they would send a UC to cross the street back and forth all day long. What a f’n waste of taxpayer funds.
