How many officers and equipment were used for this 8 hour operation?

Any extra staff at the station or overtime costs incurred?

What was the cost? (i don't care if it was a state grant -- we all pay taxes)

How many law abiding citizens were infringed upon?

What other crimes were reported during 7pm and 3am in other areas of the community?

What was the net return to city, county, state in penalties, fees, impounds?

How can a suspended license be considered part of the Supreme Court ruling that admits this unconstitutional act, but allows it for public safety.
