Lee and Teresa Sipple are quite distraught at the number of speeders going through their neighborhood. Apparently unsatisfied with any law enforcement recourse taken, they decided to invest in video and radar equipment to catch those speeders and turn their evidence over to the police. It just so happens that one of the offenders they caught was Officer Richard Perrone of the Kennesaw Police Department. Officer Perrone has retaliated by filing stalking charges against the couple. To be fair, "the Sipples have e-mailed Perrone several times in regard to the matter" so legitimate stalking may have taken place. However, the massive PR black eye Perrone has taken over the issue has led him to drop the stalking charges. What a nice guy. No word on whether or not he was ticketed for speeding.
I rather dislike police corruption. Even when it's something small like disobeying traffic laws that they darn well should be following when their lights are off or lying about how often they patrol my neighborhood at night (I have video evidence of that one), we need a method watching the watchmen that's not run by said watchmen. Police provide a valuable service to our society but they need to be following the same laws they are enforcing. If they're not, they need to be called out on it and action needs to be taken. Of course we do need to refrain from stalking when taking that action.
