What Message Are We Sending?
A motor officer sitting at a busy intersection saw a vehicle come to a sudden stop at a fresh red light in order to avoid being ticketed.
A lady following closely behind was forced to come to a screeching halt in order to avoid a collision.
As a result, the woman hit the horn with gusto, flipped the man the bird, and shouted obscenities that would make a sailor blush.
After a moment the motor officer knocked on the driver side window. He asked the woman to exit the car as he told her she was being arrested.
Once the booking process was complete, the woman was surprisingly released from custody. The arresting officer met her in front of the department and apologized.
“I’m sorry,” he said. “But after seeing the WWJD bumper sticker, Christian fish, and pro-life license plate frame, I assumed the car was stolen.”
