Issue: State Patrol sting puts brakes on seat belt violators/John Branton, The Columbian

Columbian Online Poll: “A Washington State Patrol sergeant posed as a homeless man on a state Highway 500 offramp, holding a cardboard sign. In reality, the sergeant was watching for motorists who weren’t wearing their seat belts. When he saw a violation, he radioed other troopers waiting nearby to stop the cars, and they pulled 41 cars over and gave lots of tickets.”

Question: Good police work or cops going overboard? Choices: Good Cop? Or Bad Cop?
