    Ex-Drug Lordís Corvette Z06 turns into police car

    Good luck out running this bad boy.



    from the article:
    The Police Department took to their Facebook to get children aged 8 to 16 to come up with a name for the Corvette Z06 with some choices being ďCopnadoĒ and ďOptimus Crime.Ē

    Seizure/confiscation laws are soooooo utterly unconstitutional, where do we start?

    Oh, you say, it was a drug dealer!

    No, it's not just drug dealers. This should go through a court of law. The "War On Drugs" is really a War On Freedom.

    Nice bragging about their seizure. This car was pennies to a drug dealer.

    Flaunting this car is also educating our chirruns in the worst possible way about the almighty authority that government has given itself, far beyond our Founders' worst nightmares or any legal authority they may have.

    We have a 2007 here (or did) that the Sheriffs Dept. got the same way. I haven't seen it on the road in a while, so I don't know if they still have it or had to get rid of it.

    Those wheels clear C6Z brakes? Or did they throw the rears on the front...

    Absolutely agreed

    But not even that - why is the PD posessing the car? The state government should have auctioned the car off. How can you give the police department a direct stake in the proceeds of what they are seizing, it's an obvious conflict of interest. And what public interest is there for police to be driving around in a megabuck supercar instead of a Taurus with a lightbar like they are supposed to?

    Ignoring the political aspects, this is pretty cool. I think I'd be honored to be pulled over by this!

    The ability to keep seized assets, whether cash or property, is a guaranteed method to horribly corrupt PDs and persecutors.

    You could not do it better if you contracted a think tank on ways to corrupt those people.

    The road to hell, once more paved with "good intentions." More fallout from the War On Drugs.

    There are now more Pontiac Azteks running drugs than Corvettes. Fact. I'd be curious to see the numbers on Toyota Tercel SR5s, too...

    Is the corvette permanently in Police possession?
    Or was the druglord granted weekend visitation rights?
    Because I'd be like, that's cool, you pay for the maintenance and repairs and I'll drive it on the weekends.

    The only crime here is dressing that poor Z06 up doughnut/donut chaser gear and besmirching it with an awful awful name. Optimus Prime wasn't a damn Corvette!!!!! Tracks is the damned Corvette of the group!!!!

    For reference: Tracks.jpg
