Independence MO Seeks New Revenue Source From Traffic Fatality Survivors (Poo-Poo on KC STAR)

The local Scandal Sheet (KC STAR) has run a story today about how the City of Independence MO is taking down people's homemade roadside memorials to those killed in vehicle crashes.

Indy doesn't want YOU to make and maintain those 'potentially dangerous (Indy officials' excuse)' memorials but for a FEE of $150- that City of Corporate Welfare (Bass Pro handouts) will put up a memorial FOR YOU.

I've heard of some really- REALLY screwball ways for cities to milk more revenue from their citizens- but this has to be one of the saddest excuses of all-time.

To add insult to injury- that local bastion of free speech The KANSAS CITY STAR has "disabled" reader comments on the story.
