Being Old Cost $114 In LA

Just another example of the great police work we expect from the LAPD. Just because you are a little slower at 82, should you be fined $114 for it? If you want to find out, go to LA.

(AP/Yahoo)An 82-year-old woman received a $114 ticket for taking too long to cross a street. Mayvis Coyle said she began shuffling with her cane across Foothill Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley when the light was green, but was unable to make it to the other side before it turned red.
So what could their logic be?
Sgt. Mike Zaboski of the Valley Traffic Division said police are cracking down on people who improperly cross streets
Improperly?!? Her only crime is being slow. Could there be any other reason why she was arrested?
"I think it's completely outrageous," said Coyle, who described herself as a Cherokee medicine woman.
