5 Terrifying Ways Police Can Legally Screw You Over

Once again, a humor site proves much more informative than 99% of our "news" outlets.

This article also proves my oft repeated point: We live in a de facto police state.

2. I got pulled over last year. That was fucking scary.

And I didn't even do anything that would have warranted me getting pulled over except that my car had inched over the line at a stop light and it's an intersection that I drive through every day (and it was a new car at the time - I wasn't used to the brakes). The officers must have thought that I had been at the local bars drinking but I wasn't. And I was going to my friends' birthday party, which of course was at a bar. The officer asks me where I was going and in my head I'm thinking "don't tell him you're going to a bar! But what else is open at night?". So I explain that I'm going to my friends house which was half true - it was two blocks from where I got pulled over. The cops get me out and make me do all the sobriety tests, which I passed. The moral is that anyone can get pulled over at any time for anything.
