    Until you have any actual comprehension of what cops are doing and going through when there’s a police pursuit, Johnny Q, reconsider the curt comments…they’re putting it on the line for you and me.

    • Sentenced by the media

      The charges presented here are atypical of addiction and will and cannot be resolved through the court system or increased police presence. Also, legislative overhaul as in NORML do not address the core issue that is troubling the black community which is racism 《—》 high unemployment. Challenge the status quo, foetus blow.

        Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
        “Doubtless,” said I, “what it utters is its only stock and store,
        Caught from some unhappy master, whom unmerciful disaster
        Followed fast and followed faster, till his songs one burden bore,—
        Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
        Of “Never—nevermore.”

        wake up, Sentenced… this is a challenge. and as the man says… https://youtu.be/WeDWaXyHO8Y

    Driving on a suspended license is a class 1 misdemeanor – one click below a felony. Fleeing when the blue lights light up is class 1 stupidity. Throw in a baggie of weed and the combination makes sense. Not sure what Johnny Q would offer as the officer’s alternative. As Foetus implies, too many of these stops end up badly for law enforcement. A “thank you” is more appropriate than sarcasm.
