Obama Grudge Against Cambridge Police

http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/oba...mo_code=8406-1

Quote:
One reason Barack Obama may have been so critical of the Cambridge Police Department is that he might have a grudge against the law enforcement agency.

Obama, who attended Harvard Law School from 1988 to 1991, lived in Cambridge and apparently didn't like the fact he was frequently hit with parking tickets.

In all, Obama received 17 tickets for parking violations, and he did not pay 15 of them until a local newspaper exposed him as a scofflaw.

According to a 2007 Associated Press story, Obama was a parking ticket deadbeat for more than a decade and felt the need to pay the 15 outstanding parking ticketsonly as his presidential campaign began in earnest in 2007.

Here is the Associated Press story detailing Obama's negligence:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid.
The Illinois senator shelled out $375 in January two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.
The story was first reported Wednesday by The Somerville News.
Obama received 17 parking tickets in Cambridge between 1988 and 1991, mostly for parking in a bus stop, parking without a resident permit and failing to pay the meter, records from the Cambridge Traffic, Parking and Transportation office show.
He incurred $140 in fines and $260 in late fees in Cambridge in all, but he paid $25 for two of the tickets in February 1990.
Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the Obama campaign, dismissed the tickets as not relevant.
"He didn't owe that much and what he did owe, he paid," Psaki said on Wednesday. "Many people have parking tickets and late fees. All the parking tickets and late fees were paid in full."

Many people do lots of wrong things but that don't make them right for doing em. The one parking ticket I ever got in my life was paid ASAP.

The police, in the liberal hippie city of Cambridge are just racist white KKK members.
