Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Alright so my friend Mike and I went out for some food, and on the way back we drove by a Ford dealer, and out front was a Focus SVT5 for $15,987 new._ So i stopped to look at it, since I am in the market for a new car to replace the Focus I have now._

So I'm drewling over this car at an amazing price for about 10 minutes when a cop drives by slowly._ Since we were looking at a car obviously placed to attract people to look at it I didnt think much of it._ that was until 4 patrol cars and a paddy wagon all come flying up._ So the cop gets out and takes our licenses, and his squad starts looking around the dealer lot and inside my car, which I must add they didnt ask permission to do._ So I tell the guy about how I'm looking for a car, and he tells us how dealers have been getting "hit" alot lately._ He asks me if he'll find any of our "friends" in the lot, to which I said I dont have any friends._

So blah blah blah we stand there woth 5 cop cars for 20 minutes and after they find nothing they let us go._ They tell us however that we are on file and that we're not in the clear yet - if they find anything wrong we will hear from them._ That sucked.

I plan to go to the dealer tomorrow to test drive the car.

the cops my way are retarded.....I live out in the country and i the roads are twisty...so i like to get on it alot (very non traffic of course). However cops do sit on them but NEVER pull you over. But, they will give you a $200 fine for riding a BMX bike on the sidewalk. I got one. And the cop that gave it to me's son is the main drug dealer in town!

Most cops need to be strapped to a tree and beaten with spiked baseball bats, sorry but its true.

Police aren't here to protect and serve, I wish they would change their creed to " TO ANNOY AND HARASS".
