DeCypher44: 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???


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

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!

xanadian: 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.


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.

P.S. Police need exactly no more funding.

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

Why would you want it to? That's about the dumbest thing I've seen people do to cars.

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.

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

mark12A: Those Homeland Security grants are a pretty sweet deal...


Maybe you should...oh wait. You're always dumber than a brick.

Indubitably: "Donated?"

Seriously?



Proof it wasn't?
