NYPD is saying that Google allows Waze users to update the application (one of the core features of the app) with the location of the DUI checkpoints is "irresponsible" and "serves to aid impaired and intoxicated drivers to evade checkpoints and encourage reckless driving."  Oh and NYPD wants them to stop allowing users to update "any other substantially similar data" to the DUI checkpoints.  Google replies with "We believe that informing drivers about upcoming speed traps allows them to be more careful and make safer decisions when they're on the road."

NYPD must be experiencing a budget tightening.

How long before one of the libtarded states implement an exit tax?

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I thought one of them already did that. Was it New York? Maybe it was proposed in Connecticut -- don't remember.
