state of oregon is flat broke last i knew
I'm not sure what the point is you're trying to make. You know cops and you know how they behave? Different departments have different priorities. Perhaps the local cops in Canyonville don't respond when you call them, but I've never had that experience. If you're talking about the State Patrol pulling people over for doing 68 in a 55, they certainly do that. Often, in my experience, the police will use a moving violation as probable cause to pull someone over but often there is something sucispious about the vehicle or driver that causes them to pull them over. Cops profile, which is completely legal as long as it's not based on race. On one ride along I went on all the cop did was pull over beat up pick-up trucks, looking for "scumbags". Turns out the cop was under the impression that meth-head "scumbags" drive beat up pick-up trucks. He wasn't interested in writing tickets, he was interested in making drug busts.I haven't had a ticket since 1990 , or any other voilation of any kind ... the thing is , you see them pull people over for 68 in a 55 , someone comes almost to a complete stop for a stop sign in the middle of no where and give tickets ... yet when I have a tresspasser in my yard who refuses to leave , they dont even come ... let alone return your call . There are people all over filling prescription narcotics and blatently selling them on the street ... those people have nothing to lose and are rarely gone after by the cops ... Get yer facts straight Noahk and don't be so nieve .... I know cops and what they do , what they cover , what they choose to look the other way on ..... eh , im done wasting my breath .... fishin's more fun than debating ...
