Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a bill Thursday that would have limited cellphone fines to $100 in cities. The author is trying to say that he supports excessive fines since he doesn't want to lower them. The author says this because Steve is a Gov. and personally he doesn't want to lower them since he will be able to make money out of the fines. The author is able to use quotes from the Gov. and is able to show us that he supported the bill that lowered fines unlike Steve.
What the author is trying to say is that he is against this huge fine. The author says this because he feels like fining someone this much is wrong since the business owner barely makes enough money per year. The author uses quotes from the business owner since he was questioned so he is able to use the business owner's opinion and is able to understand him.
The author says that he does not agree with the fines since they were leading to people being imprisoned since they were being charged way too much. The author says that this was a mix up from the court but still feels like it is wrong. The author uses quotes from supreme court cases and also talks about up coming cases.
Author says that this fine over the impounded car is unfair and basically unconstitutional. The author feels this way because he feels like it is wrong for someone who barely has money enough for themselves to pay such a huge fine. The author uses actual information based on the case and uses some quotes from judges and from the homeless man.
The author states that these fines are way too big for someone who just stole a can of beer especially if they aren't able to get money to pay it off. Author says this because he knows that the man is homeless and doesn't have money to pay the huge fine which could cause him to go to jail. The author uses other small examples that end up with an excessive fine and sometimes an even bigger punishment than that.
