I thought Southfield was the really racist suburb in that part of Greater Detroit.

Racial profiling might be against the SOP of the Livonia PD but that does not mean it does not happened for that rules against it are being adequately enforced.   I for one am inclined to believe it does happen.

My take is if your liberty is improperly impeded, by any goon in a uniform with a gun, they are not any different than why we shed blood for our liberty, to move about unimpeded, without interference by goons with guns.

And any "Officer of the law" who engages in such activity should be dealt with as if he were a royal British officer caught by American regulars.

We literally had a f*@king war about this.
It is not open to farking debate.

Mill about.

Wear a mask, you dolt,

But do feel free to move about the country.

Never heard of this city before so I went to it's Wikipedia page.  Declining population, suburb of Detroit, 92.0% white, reputation for being a "speed trap".  Yeah, if you are black, you're getting pulled over.

Livonia. That town is so square, it's literally a square.

I remember a brief few glorious years of the radar detector letting me know about some speed traps before they banned them. They should make one for profile traps.

"Livonia Police officers do not target their enforcement actions to individuals based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, etc.," the department posted on Facebook. "Racial profiling is a serious allegation and is not tolerated.

Should be easy enough to back these claims with some data.

When I was a wee Gordon my family had a small cat who was convinced that I was one of her kittens. Whenever I was ill she sat at the foot of my bed and watched over me until I recovered. When I was well she made sure I never felt lonely.

So to me, yes. All cats are beautiful.

I know it's incidental and do what you want with your money but...

"when he tried to cash $99,000 worth of checks, suspecting fraud. "

Why the hell would you cash them instead of depositing them?  And then transferring it to wherever the hell you actually want it?

She was waiting to see if you kicked the bucket so she could start to consume your flesh.
