I'm doubting that was actually seized by cops and crushed for the mentioned reasons. If so, couldn't they just spend the time to part it out or sell it and make some money for the department instead of just essentially setting money on fire? Totally un-American if true? Totally. I couldn't begin to fathom how raped I would feel if I was accused of street racing and had my car seized. But I still don't get the reasoning behind "this car was racing illegally, lets ******* smash it to smithereens".

No car, you don't race much. Letting people keep the car is leting them do it again. Plenty of places to race legally - especially for someone with 50k wrapped up in a vehicle.

Same reason they take guns from poachers. So they can't do it again.

I didn't bother watching the video so I don't know where that took place, but here in the Civilized State, public crushing is sometimes performed as punishment for street racing. It is intended both to humiliate the owner / cause them anguish, and to serve as a highly visual deterrent.

Given the tradition of Forfeiture, Whipping and The Stocks as punishment in colonial America, I'd say that this form of public humiliation is not un-American.

So they're throwing money in the trash to humiliate the owner? Saying "This car belongs to the PD and you're never getting it back" isn't enough? I can understand if they seize the car after repeated offenses, but do we have to smash it in front of you like a child that's been crossed by another child. Maybe not un-American, but totally barbaric. What's the criteria for 'street racing'? What the cop thought they saw? The poacher analogy I feel is weak too, what's to stop them from buying another gun. Point being, I don't see a point of destroying something that took valuable resources to construct, which could be sold or utilized, and smashing it in a futile attempt to shame and humiliate someone who's violated the law. It just seems, for lack of better words, fucked up and backwards. Just like colonial America.

In the aforementioned context of car-crushing as public humiliation, let this be a lesson to you all.

Hahaha. I was wondering about that.

Today I switched from ATT to Verizon, from HTC One X to SGS III. From RGB striped IPS LCD to Pentile matrix SAMOLED.

The pentile is pretty disappointing.

Now if I can finally actually get the plastidip on the car, and raise the ride height about 1/2" with some spacers and roll the fenders, I'll be pretty well off. Poor car has had it rough lately. This is the first time I have taken pictures of it in probably over a year. It's been ignored. With this ride height I rub even with small bumps and dips in the road. Hard turns also causes rubbing.

If you can bring it up here Friday or Saturday, I can probably borrow my buddy's fender roller and fix you right up.


If you'd rather raise it up and listen to Chevies Ridin High, that's cool, too.

Hell yeah, that would be awesome Chris. Yeah, if you don't mind and you can borrow it, I'd be willing to drive up and pay you for your time and effort. I was going to just rent one and do it myself, but I like this idea better.
