Thank You, Highway Patrolman.

So, last friday night, after replacing all my signal lights on my ranger to make sure they work, i made a legal right on red while signaling, then the truck bucks from the bad gas still in the aft tank so i pull it over to get out of the stream of traffic.

instantly, a state trooper flies up my ass lights blazing and marches up to the window of my stalled truck.

"I pulled you over for not signaling for a right turn."

"..what?"

"License and insurance, now."

*hand over licence* "i don't have my card yet, i just got this truck two days ago and i don't have my new card yet, but i did transfer the policy from my other truck."

"okay." *walks off*

so then he comes back up, demands i get out of the car, and arrests me for not having insurance and driving on a suspended license, except i never missed paying a ticket, ever.

apparently they suspend your licence if you don't pay a special fee every year after getting a no insurance ticket, except they never told me, i never recieved a letter, and i was never informed when it was suspended.

and he refused to believe i had insurance, and he refused to let me call somebody who could verify it with my policy number.

so i go to jail, spend the next 12 hours being denied a phone call, and the only reason i am even out now is because i snuck my phone past the front door and fired a blind text to my mom saying "jail, help."

so, after posting bond, i just got my insurance card proving i was covered, and whenever i get my court letter i'm gonna march down to the courthouse and slam that bastard down on the counter.

put that in your pipe and smoke it buddy.

so, i watched the tow the grey turd away on a flatbed, but i managed to get it back the next day.

right now, aside the insurance ticket, which i intend to fight, i paid my re-instatement fee, and should be legal in a few days.

in conclusion, Police: there when they want your money, leaving you hang out to dry if you need help.

Re: Thank You, Highway Patrolman.

Texas Highway Patrolmen are kinda epic sometimes. When I was on the Mustang cruise last month, we had a group of about 10 of us that got flagged down by a highway patrolman to pull over (We were hauling ass trying to catch up with the rest of the pack of cars, doing something like 110 in a 55). Of all of us, only one of us got a ticket, and that was the dude who brought his Corvette to a Mustang cruise.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.
