The L.A. boycott is totally based on principles

Unless, of course, it happens to cost the city some cash...

Two much-debated City Hall issues are expected to converge this week when the Los Angeles Police Department's red light camera program moves to the front of the line for an exemption from the city's contracting boycott of Arizona over that state's new immigration enforcement law.

On Tuesday, the City Council is scheduled to consider — and appears likely to approve — an exception to the boycott allowing a 10-month extension of a multimillion-dollar agreement with Scottsdale-based American Traffic Solutions.

[...]

The council's Public Safety Committee says the exception is justified because red light cameras provide a "significant benefit to public safety."
$300,000 worth of Arizona's dirty, racist "public safety." Yeah.
