Tennessee State Patrol pays its officers’ fines

Glenn Reynolds notes an article reporting on Tennessee state troopers caught speeding by automatic traffic cameras. The cameras fail to extend “professional courtesy” the way most any human cop would.

Sounds like a story of poetic justice, right? But then there’s the last line of the article:

State Safety Department spokesman Mike Browning said Thursday the Patrol will pay the speeding fines.

So when the troopers break the law, the state pays their fines.  Yeah, that’ll show them.
