A prosecutor said Wednesday that he would not lift speed-trap sanctions against the small town of Damascus, in part because of what he called the level of past abuse of police power.

The Damascus PD should never again be allowed to patrol and write tickets on U.S. 65. Their abuse was so flagrant that it was almost beyond belief, unless you were the one getting a ticket. Their not being present does not encourage me to speed through town on my way to Branson. It does relieve me of the fear that I will get a ticket if I accidently travel 2 MPH over the limit.
