Six weeks ago my wife bought a brand new 2010 Camaro. We think it's the best-looking car on the road. Apparently, so
does local law enforcement because she's been pulled over at least once a week by every authority in the county and
given warnings for every infraction imaginable. They even have her commute patterned and follow her.
One recent morning, a state trooper and two Bayfield marshals chose her over a speeder to warn her about a front
license plate. So there she is on the side of the road, with three cruisers flashing lights, looking like a serial
killer to the passers-by, just so the police can get a good look at a really cool car.
Why can't the LEOs just make an appointment? Hey, they can bring their cameras. Just call and we'll even come by at
shift change so more of them can look. Just let my wife enjoy her new car without being treated like a criminal.
Or, if they need somebody to pick on, I have a charcoal Dodge pickup with a Gadsden flag - don't tread on me" - in the
back window. That should be easy enough to spot and surely qualifies me as a terrorist or something.
