This, from Lawdog...
"How dare you stop a tax-paying American citizen driving on a tax-payer funded American street and demand -- demand, by God! -- a "legitimate reason to enter the neighborhood" ... here's your "legitimate reason" -- damn your eyes -- because I want to and it's none of your penguin-squicking business!"
Fact is if the Washington, D.C. police were doing their job properly none of the insane Gestapo techniques would be necessary. Would they?
Damn it. Just plain fucking damn it.
