  1. This is why I NEVER pull over for ANY vehicle tailing me, flashing lights, maybe an “unmarked” police car. I will drive to a police station and then stop.

    Unfortunately, in today’s Amerika, I can possibly be shot by the driver of such a car, even if it is a legitimate police officer, on the way to the police station that I am headed toward for my own safety… or be charged with God-knows-what upon arrival at the closest police station.

    REAL, plainly identifiable police cars I will stop for. Unfortunately, in today’s Amerika, I can be tased, shot, or killed for stopping for one of these too. And there’ waaaaay too many of these too.
