Only some police officers are bad.

All looters are bad.

We are now in a state of emergency. The national guard will be deployed.

One fix for the police that will be a very easy fix is to get rid of this paid suspension bullshit.

Right^^^^^ the footage from mondawmin mall is rediculous. Residents are looting it because police resources are busy handling other stuffs. One dude had so much **** he fell over while running and had a hard time getting up. Glad i dont live there but close enough.

Yes indeed.



Also you can make the center thing show a light around the outside that moves like a tach. It's very silly. In eco mode it turns green and decreases in intensity of greenness as you press on the throttle.

Smartest feature (implementation, who knows) is the auto-shut off when you stop the car. We waste so much gas idling...

Whats your take on the battery electric motor powered vehicle with a gasolineish generator to charge the batteries? IMO that's best option out there.

You won't be able to hear the timing chain rattle if the car never idles

I'm not a fan of the busy interior, though. Can't say I really ever liked the interior of a mini though.

Does it drive good?

it was used in Ferguson. it's not that funny--it's just sad.

these people out there looting couldn't give the slightest **** about police abuse. We shouldn't tying the two together.

I mean, we might as well have Susan Rice out there saying it was a YT video that sparked these riots. While there might have been a few people out there actually protesting police abuse, the looter used it as an opportunity to get a free pair of shoes to go with their food stamps and welfare checks.

people who frown on police abuse, like the braineack, aren't out there damaging private property, stealing property, destroying lives and livelihoods, causing physical harm, and trying to literally burn down the city. These riots have nothing to do with police and everything to do with the scum showing their true colors. It was always just a matter of circumstance.

I laugh because the opportunists at the mall will be caught. Police helicopter camera and cameras at the site recorded all pertinent information to prosecute. Some of the perps drove nicer cars than we have.

Unfortunately, one cameraman was injured during that looting. He was assaulted because he was recording the perps. He lived to tell.

Beats me. Seems like you might as well tie the gas motor to some wheels with a disconnect if you're going to lug it around anyway. Plus, dont most hyrids run more efficiently at low load cruise on the gasser? I would have to do research. I wont though.

I can't hear the timing chain rattle (there is an auto stop disable button). It DOES sound like the engine noise is pumped into the cabin via speakers because it doesn't sound like a normal car. It sounds like a yoked sports car. The sound is convincingly good if a tad hard on my suspension of disbelief.

It seems to have a lot of power for being the base model with an automatic. That could be the noise though. Handling seems firm and reasonable. I haven't really had a chance to push it yet though. It seems pretty solid though.
