I feel bad for the residents of your locale if things are so terribly mis-managed there that you have developed such a cynical outlook on life. Perhaps you could make more of a difference in your town if you tried to run for office, got elected and made sure things were done properly; instead of posting rants that serve very little purpose on a comment page.
Listen here, John (if you can take a moment and drop down from your perch on Mount Olympus), I live in Adams County but commute to Rockville each day, sometimes even to DC if I have an onsite task to do. I have recently had two encounters with Frederick County, Maryland LEOs, both negative. One played the old game of "ride my bumper" until I speed up so that he can pull me over. I didn't play that game, got out of his way, and got pulled over anyway for "making an unsafe lane change." The other incident was more insidious, with the deputy ticketing me for speeding without having an actual radar reading (he was making a U-turn when I went by him), just a best guess on his part. I hired a lawyer for that one and went to court. During the proceeding, the LEO told two bald-faced black lies against me, but the judge threw the ticket out because he could not show precisely how fast I was going. In another instance, I had to complain to my township supervisors about a LEO from another township (whose force had NOT contracted with our township for "protection") who was hiding behind a tree on my property, manning a speedtrap. I took a picture of him, emailed it to the supervisors, and soon the LEO disappeared. And like I said earlier in this thread, a couple of weeks ago, I saw a PA State Trooper hiding behind a rise in the median near the G-Burg Outlet Mall, with his radar gun out, targeting south-bound motorists going on vacation. And don't get me started on Rockville Twon cops, who dress exactly like Nazi SS troopers, complete with balloon britches and jack books. Tell me again, how these guys are suppsoed to be our friends? Give me a break!
