CameraFRAUD has been sent a copy of a RICO suit that names a large contingency in the scamera criminal enterprise in Arizona as defendants. Here are some highlights of the list of money-grubbers:
*Redflex Traffic Systems
*City of Tempe
*Tempe Police Dept
*Karen Finley, CEO of Redflex
*Terry Goddard, AZ Atty General
*Hugh Hallman, Mayor of Tempe
*John Halikowski, Director AZ Dept of Transportation.
*Roger Vanderpool, (former) AZ DPS Director
*Thomas Ryff, City of Tempe Chief of Police
*Joel Navarro, Tempe City Council
*Judge Louraine Arkfeld, Tempe Muni Court
There are many more listed on the official document here. The plaintiff, Mr. Daniel Gutenkauf has filed the suit under the grounds that all named parties are acting as a criminal syndicate, committing extortion and fraud in order to profit from scamera tickets.
Eventually the scam of photo ticketing will come to an end in this country. If this RICO suit is heard and goes through, it will be a giant step in the direction of a nationwide ban.
The state of Arizona and it’s elected officials have shamed themselves by allowing the criminal behavior of scamming motorists with photo tickets to continue. If it takes a lawsuit to put it to and end in our state, so be it, but our public officials have had plenty of chances to do the right thing and have looked the other way. This shame is theirs.
