There are many small-town speed traps across the country, but Jericho, Arkansas may be one of the most outrageous speed traps out there.

bicycles while tearing down the road at at 30 mph over the posted speed
limit with no lights and no sirens on.
If you or I slammed into a 10 year old on a bicycle while doing
70mph in a 40mph zone on a major thoroughfare like Belt Line, we’d be
crucified in the press and locked away for years on a vehicular
homicide charge. But since Senior Corporal Michael Vaughn is a cop,
even though he admittedly violated established policies for safe
driving and killed a 10-year-old child through his recklessness, he
