Haha agreed. I was such a "threat" asleep in front of my place, that it they had to devote the time and "energy" of two police officers, some paramedics and an ambulance to "secure" me. So rediculous, if I lived in Russia the cops would have probably just robbed me and let me be.

Hey, hey, we gotta have some community standards to keep it nice. If this were Russia, you'd have been conscripted for Army duty.

No doubt, I should ammend my previous sentence but i'm not sure that would reflect the truth...

"If I were in some parts of Russia perhaps some particular, amoral, policemen would have just robbed me and let me be."

heh

Unfair ticketing. Accusing people of going faster than they really were traveling, accusing people of aggressive behavior toward them when there was no aggressive behavior displayed, stopping people for going 5 MPH over the speed limit... that sort of harrassment.

I do see squad cars all over, waiting to pull people over all the time.
Yes, I can testify to the fact that Larimer County Sheriff's Dept spends a lot of time in the small town where I live. When I worked at the hospital, they were always bringing 'criminals" to the ER to be examined. Their SUV's drive up and down the canyon constantly at all times of the day/night, and there are usualy 1 to 2 of their SUV's driving around town. We have our own active police dept. Don't understand why they act as if they own our town. Maybe someone has an explanation?
