Creston, I would have retained a civil attorney in that situation (depending how bad the wreck was).

I did. Never came to nothing because the guy was native american, and apparently the only place you can sue a native american is in an indian court, and the odds of winning there are basically exactly zero.

/edit: ugh, we get it Creston, you never do anything wrong and you hate cops and you have been wronged by them. Geez.

Stop building straw men, bats. I've never said that. The entire argument started with me asking what exactly a cop is going to give you a ticket for/arrest you for if you hand him the aforementioned card. The only reason the accident came up is because they're holding "insurance" checks here while at the same time they obviously don't give a flying fuck about whether people drive with or without insurance. (And it's rampant in OK. they estimate 20-25% have no insurance.)

Once again (native american) your rage is centered on the officer and not the real problem. Now we dig into it and things make more sense, but yet you were basing everything on the officer.

North Texas article:

*UPDATE TO THE VIDEO ABOVE** Fort Worth police initially said they could not immediately find any record of their officers being involved in the roadblock, but on Tuesday police spokesman Sgt. Kelly Peel said that the department's Traffic Division coordinated with the NHTSA on the use of off-duty officers after the agency asked for help with the survey.

"We are reviewing the actions of all police personnel involved to ensure that FWPD policies and procedures were followed," he said. "We apologize if any of our drivers and citizens were offended or inconvenienced by the NHTSA National Roadside Survey."

Don't be mad at cops, be mad at the NHTSA.

Ohio used DUI before switching a number of years ago to OVI: Operating a Vehicle while Impaired. OVI is all-inclusive. You can be arrested for OVI'ing on a bicycle. It is also illegal to be in possession of keys to and intoxicated in a parked car while in the driver's seat.

Ah, okay. To be honest, I have no problem with DUI/OVI or whatever stops. Those genuinely have to do with safety, mine included.

It's the other stops that are horseshit. And in the 10 years that I've lived here, I've twice gotten stopped for insurance-checks, once for god knows what reason as they just stopped me, took a look inside, and moved me on (I guess they were hunting someone), and never for a DUI check.

Wow. Checkpoints are illegal in all forms here, unless there is a manhunt. No insurance is actually pretty rampant. It especially sucks in a state like Minnesota which is a "no fault" state. Everyone is required to have insurance.
South Dakota doesn't REQUIRE insurance, but if you get in an accident, and it is your fault, you could lose everything you own. But, if you are a turd and don't have a penny to your name, then who cares right!? Other person gets screwed.

Creston, I would have retained a civil attorney in that situation (depending how bad the wreck was).

The sad thing is that more and more they're turning into the latter, rather than the former.

eh, I wholeheartedly disagree. Cops are nicer, more professional, less likely to kick your ass, etc etc etc than ever before. Go talk to an old time copper....

It's not the old-timers that I see on the road here anymore. It's the guys in their 20s who apparently get a hard-on for being a cop. The Sheriff in my county retired last year, and got replaced by one of his newest deputies, and the guy is a total fucking asshole.

Well, if it is like 99% of the departments I am familiar with, the old timers are on break for 8-12 hours a day, will MAYBE take their calls, and are most likely to be found in a parking lot reading a paper or at the office doing nothing.

Out of sight out of mind is probably why you don't see them....

Isn't the Sheriff a position that is an election where you are? Didn't your populace choose him?

Acting like an adult and being respectful is the best way to get through a traffic stop.

Although it wasn't clear, I was referring to the bullshit that was going on in Texas, not a normal traffic stop, even though those are, quite frankly, horseshit too.

I've gotten stopped twice for a check to see if I was driving with insurance, yet the one time that I got fucking crashed into by a guy who pretended to have insurance, only to later find out it was expired, and I tried to tell the cops about it, they were like "Yeah, that happens." And that was that. You guys aren't going to go give him a ticket for driving without insurance? "no."

Okay then. Please fucking pull me over again because you obviously care so much about people driving without insurance.

Can't speak for other states, but in Minnesota driving without insurance is pretty much the same as a DWI. When people call and tell me that they later found out the other driver doesn't have insurance, I update my report and make sure a copy goes to the city/county attorney for charging. Sorry you had that interaction, but once the incident is over, a cop rarely has anything to do with it. I would notify MY insurance company of the situation, then either retain a civil attorney to go after them, or work with city/county attorney for restitution.
Just throwing your hands up in the air in frustation is no one's fault but your own. Crashes are civil issues, usually not criminal issues.

But if you get pulled over, refuse to talk and are acting like a weirdo with some printoff card from the internet then I wouldn't be surprised if that causes more problems for you than it helps.

*DING

It sets off alarm bells. That is the type of stuff whack-job Sovereign Citizens do. First off, if you handed me that card I would instantly see that it isn't your insurance card and return it. I am not going to stand on the side of a road and read 4 point font while you are inside of a dark car and my attention is off of you. If there was a secondary checkpoint, I would send you to it. Period.

Next, the two morons in the video are looking to cause and create trouble. They are attempting to create a situation and sue the department. They intentionally drove through the same checkpoint 2x in opposite directions. Judging by the comments made by person off camera, they wanted to get a rise out of the officers to see what would happen - and they obviously have contempt for law enforcement.

The first officer was hard to watch. He isn't safe at all, and had the people in the car wanted to kill them, they could have easily. His eyes are off the car and occupants several times and for extended periods of time. I am more concerned for his safety than I am what is going on with the stupid card.

Next, I don't know what the laws are in the state they are in. But windows have been busted when officers ask to roll down the window and they don't comply (at similar checkpoints). I always request that the window be rolled down further, as it is hard to hear with traffic, etc. It is quiet in the vehicle, so it is easy for passengers to hear, but there is a lot of noise on the outside of a vehicle, and we can't hear you when you do dumb shit like that. If the window "doesn't work" I ask them to open the door so we can chat.

I don't know what an OVI checkpoint is, but if they were looking for drunk drivers, and those checkpoints are legal, then both officers got what they wanted. You can see both of them get close enough to smell the contents of the vehicle. Had anyone in the vehicle been drinking, they would have smelled it and moved them to a secondary checkpoint.

They are doing nothing other than hampering the job the officers are doing. In most checkpoint type situations, if the person in the car doesn't do exactly what was requested, then they get passed to next checkpoint where they can take more time to deal with twats like this - which I am surprised didn't happen here.

The officers in the video are doing what is penned by their local/state laws. If you live in that state and don't like it, move to another state, or try and effect change. Minnesota doesn't allow checkpoints.

Acting like an adult and being respectful is the best way to get through a traffic stop. You act like an ass, you probably get a ticket. I never understood why anyone is anything other than nice. These things fall under "what would a normal person do in the same situation" - well, this isn't it.

Did I miss anything?

That's pretty awesome. I'm going to make me one of those cards.

Good way to end up in jail for the night, or get mounted with tickets. A lawful stop is a lawful stop. period.

Change of subject somewhat, but I can't shake the feeling that these consoles are ridiculously underpowered.

Underutilized, perhaps, but not underpowered, at least not when comparing to last gen. For example, the PS4's GPU is (reportedly) 4.5x more powerful than PS3's and has 5x the previous memory. It's just going to take a while, as usual, before we see game devs starting to take advantage.

If it's 4.5x the power after 8 years, then it is considerably lower power than the PS3 was relative to the hardware of the time. What's the power difference between these?
GeForce GTX 780 versus GeForce 6800 XT

Whenever GPU conversations come up, I always like to reference this nifty chart.

oh, I need a new wireless router. I am not a fan of them, but mine went Tango Uniform this week. It was a solid one, the Gamer Lounge D-Link DGL-4300 that lasted a lot longer than I had expected.

Anyone have a wireless router they really like?

Thanks.

Report: PS4 costs $381 to build.

I always find these revelations funny. They don't care about the upfront hardware costs - they get the developers on licensing fees, us on gaming fees/DLC, and monthly service fees.

I know several people that bout 4-8 games on release day! Could have given away the device to those people and still made money.
