    :rolleyes: I know that it's a Killer on a Fun Drive. :bang:

    I was out for a short run to a Friend's house, Great clear dry day and the Music turned up, The Car is running smooth and traffic is real lite.

    Hooked the interstate exchange and coming out of the turn and see nothing but Open Highway :banana:

    Dropped the Petal and "Merged" onto the open road.



    :nonono: Had just got going and look in the Mirror and see the reason there is no one in front of me for a mile or more. :jaw:

    Mr CHP.

    :( Lights, pullover, Action;

    After polite Conversation and finding out that He is Stang Fan [ drove one for 2ys] asked me what I was listening too on the radio.
    Theme to Top Gun I replied. :D



    :) He said to keep the Takeoff's a little slower,
    He had everyone paced at 78 mph and I was pulling away from the pact from the end of the ramp.

    Let me off with a Warning. :hail2:

    Be :) and Not all Cop's are :bs:

    Ive never had a problem with local law Enforcement either . Theyve always treated me good, I suppose because I treat them good too. I know a bunch too , I was born here .One friend of mine was a bit drunk on New Years eve 2002 and decided he wanted to "play wrestle" with 2 Charlotte Police . They didnt feel like playing. He lost a tooth and had some nasty scrapes for his trouble. Police here will treat you great until you make them "not treat you great".

    Got this in an email....

    Recently, Californian ran an e-mail forum (question and answer exchange) with the topic being "Community Policing." One of the civilian email participants posed the following question: "I would like to know how it is possible for police officers to continually harass people and get away with it?"


    From the "other side" (the law enforcement side) a cool cop with a sense of humor replied: "It is not easy. In California we average one cop for every 2000 people. About 60% of those cops are on patrol, where we do most of the harassing. One-fifth of that 60% are on duty at any moment and available for harassing people. So, one cop is responsible for harassing about 10,000 residents. When you toss in the commercial, business, and tourist locations that attract people from other areas, sometimes you have a situation where a single cop is responsible for harassing 20,000 or more people a day. A ten-hour shift runs 36,000 seconds. This gives a cop one second to harass a person, and three-fourths of a second to eat a donut AND then find a new person to harass.


    This is not an easy task. Most cops are not up to it day in and day out. It is just too tiring. What we do is utilize some tools to help us narrow down those, which we harass. They are as follows:


    PHONE: People will call us up and point out things that cause us to focus on a person for special harassment. "My neighbor is beating his wife" is a code phrase we use. Then we come out and give special harassment. Another popular one on a weeknight is, "The kids next door are having a party."

    CARS: We have special cops assigned to harass people who drive. They like to harass the drivers of fast cars, cars blasting music, cars with expired registration stickers and the like. It is lots of fun when you pick them out of traffic for nothing more obvious than running a red light. Sometimes you get to really heap the harassment on when you find they have drugs in the car, are drunk, or have a warrant.

    RUNNERS: Some people take off running just at the sight of a police officer. Nothing is quite as satisfying as running after them like a beagle on the scent of a bunny. When you catch them you can harass them for hours.

    CODES: When you can think of nothing else to do, there are books that give ideas for reasons to harass folks. They are called "Codes"; Penal, Vehicle, Health and Safety, Business and Professions... They all spell out all sorts of things for which you can really mess with people. After you read the code, you can just drive around for a while until you find someone violating one of these listed offenses and harass them. Just last week I saw a guy smash a car window. Well, the code says that is not allowed. That meant I got permission to harass this guy. It is a pretty cool system that we have set up, and it works pretty well. I seem to have a never-ending supply of folks to harass. And we get away with it. Why? Because the good citizens who pay the tab like that we keep the streets safe for them. Next time you are in my town, give me a single finger wave. That is a signal that you wish for me to take a little closer look at you, and maybe I'll find a reason to harass YOU.

    That's great!!! :) haven't got a ticket in the stang yet, haven't been pulled over in it actually. But it has been my experience that the nicer you are to them, the more likely they will be nice to you.
