Before you go…

During a crisis like this, it’s more important than ever to dig beyond the news, to figure out what government policies mean for ordinary citizens and how those policies were put together.

This is perhaps the biggest, most consequential story our reporters will ever cover. And at no other time in Civil Beat’s history have we relied on your support more. Please consider supporting Civil Beat by making a tax-deductible gift.

Should be a poster for how our local government has handled this pandemic: spend too much of Federal CARES act money on OT for police, who have abused their own OT rules, to give out worthless tickets to our own citizens, which are later tossed out by the courts.  This CARES act money should have been spent on helping those in need and businesses closed by proclamation, instead of OT and new toys for HPD.  After sifting through all of this government abuse, it's absurd that prosecutors would even think of seeing this case to court.  Unless of course it is politically motivated?
