Ah, the old "plain clothes no-knock with the wrong address shoot the old man reaching for a cane and trash the house" warrant.

It's all about the deterrent value.

Even if they never run that Busa wide open it's going to deter some speeding & running, just by the respect it commands.

So much for the old "If you're not doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear from the police." fable eh?

...I don't believe that ever held true.

Is this like the NSA tracks your phone calls it's ok, if you have nothing to hide. Or is this like if the FBI raids an office of the member of the House of Representative, and there is probable cause, it becomes a separation of powers thing.

Sorry bored, no wheels, waiting for parts from out of town. Consider this fishing. I need the entertainment. Watched last years Mugello, all classes. Bored again.

I grew up in Oklahoma near the Texas border. When you enter Texas, the signs say "Drive Friendly". When you enter Oklahoma the signs say "Speed Limits Strictly Enforced. No Tolerance" That says it all!

Nice. More evidence that the police are totally out of touch.

You don't need a Busa to stop DUI. But then, the Police are not interested in stopping DUIs - they patrol to fatten the State/Local income stream.

At least OK not as bad as New York. Reportedly, if you fail to pay a speeding ticket in New York, they slap a FELONY on you. Now that's gov't at its best.

I don't think its ok for the government to track phone numbers, calls, and/or conversations. It is just another step in taking away rights and freedoms.

The FBI raid was based on a bribe that the representative a briefcase. Not exactly an innocent by-stander. Most likely the FBI did over step there bounds, but letÂ’s not over look the real story that our Representatives are (oh-so-shockingly) nothing more than crooks ready for a pay-off.

Sorry, but people have been killed who have had nothing to had in the past and it will also happen in the future.

The "what are you worried about if you have nothing to hide" defense is ridiculous.

AND all we need now are more cops that don't know when to brake off from a high speed chase and become a 150mph missile. They have enough problems not shooting themselves in the foot and head during training demonstrations.

Re: Oklahoma Highway Patrol .
Notice how terrifed the rest of the politicians are that they'll be raided too. I wonder why that is? (sarcasm off).

"Separation of Powers"..... what horseshyt. Nothing in the Constitution indicates that elected officials are exempt from prosecution for wrong doing.

What kind of idiot keeps bribe money in their freezer at home anyhow?

This could be the one event that unifies the Congress!
