    To quote the question posed by the Cars! Cars! Cars! blog, "Take a backwards, hillbilly state, add in some rough times as far as moolah goes and what do you get?"

    This is pathetic. What's next? "You have the right to remain silent, and to take advantage of the 2-for-1 chow mein at China Garden every Tuesday after 4 p.m." ::)

    Wonder if the lawyer who committed is a defense attorney?

    Maybe I'm waaaay off the mark here, but ...

    1. Ohio is a backwards, hillbilly state?
    2. What, exactly, is the problem with ads on cop cars? If it gets more cops out there, can that really be considered a bad thing?

    There was a classic Reno 911 where the dept. had a Hooters-like corporate sponsor.
    They had to wear hot pink and white unis.
    Frigging funnier than hell.

    Let me put it this way: If Bob's Burger Barn pays to get its name on the side of police cars, do you trust the police department to investigate Bob?

    And for those of you who think Ohio is metropolitan, think again. Get out of its three major-league cities (Cincy, Cleveland and Columbus) and it's either Iowa or West Virginia, depending on which direction you drive.

    I'll give you your point about policing sponsors.

    But can't you make that same metropolitan point about pretty much ANY state?

    LOL!
     
  8. Wasn't there a NC sheriff a few years back who wanted to paint his police cars like NASCAR cars? Looked for a photo but couldn't find one. Must not got his wish.
