Beat them at their own game. A cop thought I was drunk and asked me to count to ten I went: "eye, eye-eye, eye-eye-eye, eye-vee, vee, vee-eye, vee-eye-eye, vee-eye-eye-eye, eye-ex, ex... sorry, dude I'm Roman."

I am getting sick and tired of the citizens constantly blaming Law Enforcement, of trying to do their job of protecting the citizens of their communities.
I plan on throwing the book to anyone, I stop, if they say one word about our lack of not doing our jobs safely and in the most correct way, that we are trained to do.
I suggest you be prepaired to go to jail, for any violations, that we see fit towards Traffic Safety.
Excellent!!!

The police are only doing their job. So we need to do ours, when you find out where a checkpoint is, crank up your facebook app and broadcast it to all your friends and tell them to do the same.
I say nothing 2 you

So, in your threat you say basically that you will enforce the law if someone is mouthy because of course you are some big hero. But you are not. You are a glorified tax collector with the ability to bully people because you carry a badge and a gun. We are not idiots. We've lived in a police state long enough to know what it is.
