Trucker shows patrol officer who’s the boss

“Traffic laws apply to everybody, officer.”

We’ve all seen this guy—the cop who streaks by you on the highway, well over the speed limit with no lights on just because he can. What do we do about it? Contemplate the injustices of the world. Mutter slurs at the windshield. At most, tail him from a respectable distance and temporarily suckle the glory of a life without rules or consequences. What should we do? Maybe take this trucker’s lead and just lay on the horn.

Then, when the officer in question pulls you over to issue some indignant “unlawful use of horn” ticket, put him on camera, inform him that the exchange is being recorded, and take him to the rhetorical woodshed.

The whole “my taxes pay your salary” bit will never get you anywhere. Instead, explain exactly why his behavior is a danger to everyone. Just be ready: that trooper is going to (A) try to cover his ass and (B) search for any excuse to write you a ticket. Don’t give him one.

Judging from the Guy Fawkes mask in the passenger seat, this trucker is a fan of V for Vendetta. To quote V, “People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.”
