    Finally! Some justice. I have wished that I could radio in 20 cop cars to stop some idiot before.

    That kind of aggression is better spent digging ditches. Perhaps latrines in Myanmar?

    Utah has one of the highest drug useage rates per capita. Drugs bring all the other bad stuff

    haha.. try driving in Utah! Holy crap! It's either some wanna be rap star with spinners doing 40mph in a 65 because he's cool like dat, or it's the super rich guy that lives up in Park City, driving his Jag about 95 in the same 65. They flip you off, cut you off, run you off the road. About the only time I never got the finger from someone in SLC was just after 9/11. People were actually courteous and followed the speed limit. Luckily, once you get out of the car and into a store or restaurant, the people are actually pretty nice. It must be the cars. Still cracks me up though, every time I go down to SLC, doesn't matter what day, or time, I always seem to drive by the little old man driving a Delorian. Cracks me up every time. I even thought about making a sign to take with me that said, "Get that thing up to 88.6 mph man!!" but I doubt he'd get the joke anyways.

    The other thing is, they don't call it the Beehive state for nothing. You get pulled over, and there are about 3 troopers swarming around.

    Once or twice, I've had entanglements with the UHP. All but one time, I got off with a warning. Popping out that Concealed carry permit seems to buy some leeway for some reason. End up talking about guns and stuff.

    BTW, Drew, you ever shoot at that 3 gun match south of Lehi? I've been thinking about going to it, but wifeoid got sick last go round. It looks like it'd be fun.... *linky*

    Yeah, I tend to have a bit of a lead foot, must be all that lead falling off of my a... nevermind.

    The one thing I didn't get in the article was the following quote by the police spokesman:

    "I think that our suspects in this case would have been surprised if that officer perceived he was about to be engaged by some deadly threat."

    The guy rolled down his window and said "I'm going to kill you" and the OD cop didn't perceive a deadly threat? It appears, from the massive response of the UHP, that they certainly did.

    I haven't been to SLC in a while but I didn't know people had gotten so aggro on the roads. Must have been the result of exposure to all the outsiders at the Olympic games and the massive highway construction around the city leading up to the games that created brutal traffic for a number of years and tried everyone's patience.

    I'm reminded of the bumper sticker popular in California a few years back: "Cover me, I'm changing lanes."
