Here is a link to the news story on the kids that fought the cops from the Prager U Instagram. He was just released a few days ago for a violet attack.

Family Court handling felony criminal cases?!?! That's absurd. New York is as screwed up as California.

I wish we had fast patrol cars. Back when the CHP had the 5.0 Mustang patrol car in service, that was about the only time we had anything fast. Sigh! The good ol' days.

I always chuckle when they make standard squad cars keep up with sports cars and exotics in movies, well pretty much anything outside of a Prius.

There has been so many times a state trooper has taken off from a light and I've wanted to just gas is past them, but I don't wanna hurt their feelings lol

The "race a cop" thing at drag strips is common, with PBA organizations or community outreach programs funding purpose-built drag cars in police decals as a way to get kids to stop racing on the streets.....

Crime is worse now than it was back in the 80s.

There was a guy running the other day, a car hit him and knocked him flying to the ground. What did the driver do? He pulled over, went to the guy on the floor, robbed him and left him there. Animals!
I may not have the right story but I thought they intentionally hit him and then two passengers in the car jumped out and rifled his pockets and took what they could find. Talk about callous.

I was stunned. I read the story you linked and the kid is proof we live in crazy world. Seems he was responding to the judge with the right attitude and saying yes sir and all until at one point he asks the judge if HE can sue. The judge asks who he thinks he can sue and there is no response.

This is the world of crazy. HE thinks HE is the victim here.

You might be right. I only watched the video, I didnít read the story.

Prepped surface. Looks like the racers will be out tonight or within the next couple of days.

Our department had a few 5.0 Mustangs and then they got a couple of Camaro's with Corvette engine packages. These cars were only used by our dedicated Traffic officers and were all totalled within about 2 years.

The CHP had the Camaro's as well, but they were used primarily for commercial enforcement. The semi-truck drivers had a hard time seeing them coming.

Oh no, not me. I've given that up long ago.

Curious as to where that is. As you know I'm from L.A. and assume that is somewhere there.

Got your PM.

The bird is difficult to outrun as well, but it surprises me when it occasionally happens. I am impressed with criminal moxie at times.

They do this to improve grip at launch. Many of the people who attend illegal street races trailer cars equipped with full drag slicks.

I'm just venting, but….

…it is annoying how I can gross $12k in a two week pay period and the government takes half. Taxation is a racket. Sometimes I think it pays more to make less money. I'm already diverting the maximum into my deferred compensation and even with that considered I get no break during tax season. How are you guys/gals navigating the tax space?
