    Typically just a few tickets will bring crime under control. Setting up massive collections through cameras...seems clearly about casting a wide net to get as much $$ as possible.

    If law enforcement and city hall cared enough to enforce laws through typical ways instead of ways that increase revenue and entrap people...ALL Chicagoans would be better off.
