Description

KTRK-TV "... used hidden camera to prove cops were cheating the system... You get a traffic ticket, and you want to fight it in court. The cop who wrote the ticket will be there to testify against you. And chances are, he'll be getting overtime pay... But what if he snuck out of the courthouse while staying on the overtime clock? What if he wasn't there when court records said he was? What if he claimed four hours of overtime for testifying in your case when it was over in just one hour? What if he told his supervisors you got convicted - when you didn't? "
