Cop Car For Sale DALLAS --
Officer Domingo Rivera has a 2000 Crown Victoria that he's willing to part with for around $6,000. He's a Dallas cop and he got the car to do some off-duty security work. It's a fully-equipped unmarked squad car, complete with a spotlight, a place for a laptop, and flashing lights in all the right places.
Rivera says he's getting rid of it because some of his fellow officers thought it was wrong for him to be driving a fully-functioning squad car in his personal life.
So he put an ad on the website Craig's List, complete with the extra advantages of driving a cop car, like possibly avoiding traffic tickets. "Cops don't typically pull other cops over," he reasoned.
Other officers didn't like the idea at all. Cockrell Hill Police Chief Catherine Smit had a real problem with someone selling a fully-equipped police car to the public.
She said there have been too many cases of someone who impersonated an officer to commit a crime—in fact, she said she was nearly the victim of a serial rapist who posed as a cop 20 years ago.
"He was known as the 'Loop 820 Rapist' and he was going around sexually assaulting women," she said.
Rivera apparently had a change of heart, because after FOX 4 aired his story, he pulled his ad from Craig's List. However, a search for "Police Crown Victoria" returned seventeen other hits, so others appear to be selling the same type of vehicles.

Can't fix stupid. Sometimes, there just isn't anything else that can be said.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

What a tool.
And Catherine Smith is hot. Much hotter than a police chief has the right to be."Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
He knows only the Cause.
Now, who wants to quit?"
"I am only one, but I am one. I can not do everything, but I can do something. And because I can not do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do I should do. And what I should do, by the Grace of God, I will do."

my question is...
this guy is still a cop?
i feel sorry for those around him.http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
