It's a good thing they won't be driving around any hills in Denver...
 
2012-10-27 04:57:07 PM
They should make a stereotypical car for all the races.
 
2012-10-27 05:08:21 PM
The car is the department's second lowrider, surpassing its predecessor's hydraulic lifts with state-of-the-art air pumps.

So they decided a lowrider was such a good idea, they'd make a second one.

Denver, you so silly.

And now that's stuck in my head.

Needs more fuzzy dice on the mirror. :P

The low rider is a little lower.

P.S. Police need exactly no more funding.

P.P.S. Please read the above twice.

It's a good project that teaches kids a lot about automotive mechanics, auto repair, fluid dynamics, and practical applications of physics. The car itself isn't particularly useful, but the kids who know a whole lot more about a useful field... that's money well spent.

Next up how to make a Nogal's burrito and other real world skills for the high schoooooolers.

So many things are wrong here....



And to those who say the kids learned something, they already would learn in automotive class. Also, how about they design a cruiser that would actually IMPROVE police performance, not bolster a stereotype???

Skills they'll put to good use stealing and stripping cars, disposing of bodies in convenient rivers, and shooting moving targets. Or something like that.

/DOOM!

Maybe you should read the article before you make stupid pronouncements, and I say this as no fan of the DPD.

I'm not reading your proof, man.

Big deal. The Oakland police have had one for years, only theirs was constructed from an active duty cruiser which was being used by a reserve officer killed in the line of duty while driving that particular car. Never did find his killer.

A few years ago, my two eldest nephews arrived at a family gathering in a truck they had modified so that each wheel could be raised or lowered separately from the others. One drove the truck while the other used a control box to tilt from side to side and raise and lower the front and rear end. It made it easy to track where they were. Whenever we heard someone drawl "Wut the he-yell?" and start laughing, when knew they had been spotted.

ltdanman44: how much tax payer dollars were wasted on this


None. Time and parts were all donated.

Apparently these students have never turned a corner in Denver. The storm water passages at intersections are the deepest/widest I've ever seen. Good luck getting that thing around.

Lots of fail to go around here. I know it's been mentioned, but the parts and labor were donated, so zero cost to taxpayers. Also, note that the vehicle is equipped with air bags so it can change its ground clearance to clear obstacles or cruise at a different height.

Now for the article itself. WTF? Mention unique blue and red lights and no picture? No picture of their previous low rider police cruiser? Total fail. When will newspapers realize that their online presence doesn't have to be only one picture per article like their print versions? Get with it!

What? A lowrider police car! Cue outrage over the money spent even if I live five states away! Oh, everything was donated....... Well I'm still mad about it.
The only part that bothers me is that the officer in charge of it belongs to a Latino peace officer organization. I guess the guy in charge of the 4wd police vehicles belongs to the Caucasion peace officers club.

You know, of course, that most schools don't have automotive shop classes any more, right?

I hope that kid truly comprehends how insanely lucky he is to have a dad who not only knows how to work on cars, but has the time, tools, and money to purchase for him and help him rebuild rare classic sports cars.
