Traffic camera critic remakes PD website

BLUFF CITY, Tenn. (AP) — After a Tennessee police department let its website expire, the site was snatched up by a new owner — a man who uses it to gripe about traffic cameras that issue speeding tickets.

Computer network designer Brian McCrary says he discovered the Bluff City Police Department site was up for grabs, so he paid domain provider Go Daddy for the rights to http://www.bluffcitypd.com.

McCrary, who says he received a $90 speeding citation earlier this year, took over the site May 22.

His site now shows a smiling cartoon police badge clutching green currency. It also posts gripes from others who've been cited.

Police Chief David Nelson said the officer who managed the site had been on medical leave and the expiration slipped up on the department.
