He's not even getting in trouble for trying to meet a hooker?

I bet they give him a moving violation and make him pay for the damage to the patrol car.

I would pay good money, PAY I tell you, to have Ric Romero do a live report on the effectiveness of this tactic.

Ric could become a rich man off Fark alone.

Knowing firsthand how poorly people drive in this state, I'm betting that this actually was an accident. The whole thing with the massage/gunman/kidnapping is just a cover-up.

Or, make sure you get into a shouting match with another driver in a merging section of highway thats currently under construction.

Worked just fine for me today.

Wait, he went online to ask for a "massage"? He didn't trade pics? Or did he and the gun was unexpected?

You got into a rolling shouting match with another driver in a construction zone, and you are honestly surprised that you got pulled over? And think the cop was completely in the wrong for doing so?

I'd guess its a manual transmission and he put it in reverse at a stop sign or traffic light. The gunman would almost certainly be distracted by the nearby deputy, and was likely paying more visual attention to the cop than the driver.

The sheer WTF factor would probably stun the gunman enough to allow the driver to slip out, putting the truck frame between him and the gun.

Had he tried it elsewhere, the driver would have gotten his ass shot. But by forcing the gunman to fire his weapon while the police were right there, the gunman had to essentially volunteer for being executed on the spot. Smart move.

I have always thought that if someone jumps in my vehicle and flashes a gun and says, "Drive", I am going to hit the gas, get up to about 35-40 mph, and then veer off the road into the first utility pole or median.

I figure they will probably not have fastened their seatbelt, and also the passenger side airbag is turned off. At 35 mph, the utility pole will not break and send wires down electicuting my ass. It should be just enough to seriously ruin the carjackers day.

Hitting a police car will work also.

This happened to me once when I was 17 (in 1983). I was driving a beat up 68 bug and we were at a stoplight, said DPS trooper was in front of me. The light turned green, we all took off. I looked down to get a cassette (lawn, get off, etc) off the floorboard and the next thing I knew I ate the steering wheel as everyone stopped but me and I hit the cop doing about 20 or so. The front end of my vw was smashed in two feet, the amazing thing was no damage was done to the cop's car.

He got out, checked to see if I was ok, was not, had whiplash and concussion. You could see a curved mark on my forehead from the steering wheel. After getting me out of the car and calling an ambulance, he went back to call a local yokel to write up the accident report. I remember him saying this as he stopped to look at his car and mine:

"Man, they build these LTD's better than I thought"

I ended up cutting the bug's front end off with a blowtorch, putting a roll cage/fiberglass on it, and driving it 3 more years. Used to call it my urban assault vehicle.

/got a ticket of course
//started having seizures a week later, drs attribute it to accident, still have them today :o( At least the meds keep them at bay.

I know, it's pretty farking rare in my experience.

/had yet another experience with lazy, worthless cops.

//I met one decent cop through the years, and that was the fellow responding to my motorcycle crash. (someone else ran a red) Brought my stuff to the hospital when he realized the ambulance staff forgot it.

I'm surprised more people don't run into cops just to get their attention. Sometimes it really seems the only way to stay alive.

In retrospect, I could have crashed right in front of the cop without hitting him. But I didn't think of that at the time.
