    I sure know what I would have done if that little cocksucker ME would have said "fuck America" to my face.

    He needs someone to take him down and beat the ever lovin fuck out of his face. It's the only thing that works with these pieces of shit.

    And no it's not especially rare behavior.

    I saw this on the news and I was astounded. Who the HELL do these assholes think they are? Racing through the streets at that speed and running stop-signs as if they don't apply to them? WTF?!?!? I'm glad someone captured it all on videotape. These guys should be arrested and their drivers licenses revoked. They think they get "Diplomatic Immunity" because they are from Qatar? I'd like the Beverly Hills PD to actually prove they have a "zero tolerance" policy for this sort of thing. Unbelievable!

    This might be a case where the use of forfeiture laws would be justified. The drivers might be untouchable, but the vehicles aren't, especially if they were used in a felony offense.

    Could you imagine what one of cars might fetch in a police auction?

    Actually, this attitude is very common in 90210 90211 90212 and 90024. It's why I don't like doing deals around there. That combined with my temper and things don't go all that well. And sadly, we're getting a bunch of it around here over the last five years.

    Amazing what pussies they are when things get physical though.

    BHPD behaves as if they're afraid of them.

    This has been happening every summer for years now in Knightsbridge/Belgravia, when rich kids bring their cars over to London from the Middle East. I was almost run over by one a few years ago (if you're going to get killed on the road, might as well do it in style) and nearly had my eardrums ruptured by a Ferrari on the Brompton Road last week (I don't know how those noisy supercars and unsilenced Harleys are even street-legal btw).

    The police are rarely around to do anything about the speeding, but then, thanks to Conservative "austerity Britain", they no longer have the resources to devote to 'low level' crime like this. I think the local council are trying to come up with their own solution, including seizure as the ultimate sanction:

    As for Beverly Hills PD, there is probably no excuse. I suspect they are one of the best resourced and most underemployed police departments in the US.
