Cops are dangerous drivers

A couple of weeks ago as I was taking my daily walkabout around this town, I came across a guy trimming a bush and I offered to help him carry the branches to the dumpster.

As we worked he mentioned that the police chief had told him to trim the bush because one of his officers (there are one or two-- I can't keep up) had almost had an accident coming out of the alley beside the bush-- it was blocking his view.


More than once I've almost been hit by a cop car zooming out of the alleys around town. I've had to slam on my brakes to avoid an accident. In places where there was nothing obstructing the view. This has happened when I've been a passenger, too. The cops believe they own the streets and they drive like it.

I believe the cops simply don't want to be held responsible for driving like angry drunks. Probably a cop nearly hit someone and chose to blame the guy's bush instead of his own bad driving.

I could be wrong, but from what I've seen, I doubt that I am.

Cops lie-- it's just what they do. Cops are scum; not the good kind ("rebel scum"), but authoritarian scum.
