As they drove off you could watch them swerving all over the place. I'm sorry, I don't have much respect for cops. I know there have to be some good ones out there but I'm still waiting to meet one that's not crooked.
Way off topic, but...
Pleased to meet you, Bill T. Please do not condem the entire profession because of your very limited observation of bad behavior. I've arrested cops, for DUI, rape, child abuse, murder and corruption. One was my own police chief.
I've also seen bad behavior by clergy, government officials, scout leaders, teachers, physicians and others we are supposed to look up to. They are not ALL
bad, and neither are the cops. 99% are laying their asses on the line.
I have no way of knowing where you rode along, but consider that it may be a local problem.
