A Lotta Scooters You Can Buy With (seized) Drug Money

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Thanks to jmd from Modern Vespa for digging up this interesting news article featuring the newest urban patrol vehicles from the New Brunswick (NJ) PD.  There were other colorful ones, but Tommyr made this comment, saying “It’s great that the taxpayers didn’t have to foot the bill for the scooters. The dirtbag drug dealers did!”  My personal favorite bit of the article came from Ray Lewandowski, (happy recipient of the drug money and) owner of Sport Honda from which the MP3’s were purchased, quote:

You have to exhibit an air of authority when you’re a policeman.  So when you stop and your motorcycle falls on you, it doesn’t look good to the perpetrator.

Have fun crusing down the menacing streets of New Brunswick, officers.  Just don’t forget to hit that suspension lock switch (right thumb) and pull up the parking brake (center, below the handle bar) quickly before you rush off to apprehend the “perpetrators”, OK?!  Y’all be cool!
