Or take the bait which was in the previous post.
Entrapment: 1. the luring by a law-enforcement agent of a person into committing a crime.
Not trying to argue with you, my mother-in-law is an officer and load of my widest friends are just trying to be in lightened y that would not fall under the definition given.

To me going out and engaging in road rage on your own and being lured by an officer to engag in road rage is two different things also. Is there a difference in being lured verbally and being lured by action if an officer. I know it would be almost impossible to prove in court but it makes it a little easier when you have officers stating that's what they use those cars for

So what would happen if you don't stop for a patrol car with ghost lettering that you cannot see? Instead maybe drive to a police station or keep going untill they get a marked patrol car involved in the chase.

From what I've seen, Texas LEOs do NOT need to have any markings. I personally won't stop for an unmarked vehicle, flashing reds and blues or not. Phantom markings I will pull over for but a completely unmarked vehicle can call back up or wait for me to pull over in a populated parking lot.

That said, there's an all black fbody Camaro in the Houston area that caught up to a co-worker at 150+mph. (disclaimer: co-worker was on a fast paced run with a pack to galveston and didn't notice him following them for XX miles) I don't know what jurisdiction he's in or what imaginary lines you think he can't or won't cross but I've seen him pulled over in HAK and downtown Houston.

I think they sell LEO hardware and/or provide rent-a-cop services.

I've seen two Camaro SS coming from 249 Southbound at the Beltway 8 interchange.... lit up their lights for cutting in a little late in front of a car... Then they just blew past me.... Never saw those unmarked squad cars before...

They are cool, maybe they only bust them out for spring/summer.

I generally blow by any slow cop I know to be out of his jurisdiction. Usually though, they are driving faster than me. , regular old non-traffic Houston police will race you on the highway. lol

The era of slow-poke ill-handling Police Crown Vics are coming to a close. PDs across the country will start buying much more fearsome cruisers - Ford Interceptor, Chevy Impala PPV, or Dodge Charger Pursuit. They get huge discounts too. The Hemi Charger police cruiser goes for something like $23k when the civilian version cost more than $32k. They are better equipped too... like the blues brothers would say: "cop motor, cop wheels, cope tires, cop shocks..."

The vics were used mainly due to their fixable frames.

Bandera county has a green unmarked 4 door F150. He tagged me doing 121/65 and I rode away with only a speeding ticket so he's cool in my book

How do jurisdictions work with traffic law enforcement? I was pulled over by HISD for allegedly cruising at 100+mph. He took my info, ran my license and insurance then wrote me some BS paper warning requesting I obey the law

Can an ISD even give me a traffic citation? I imagine they can call in for 'real' LEO

LoL, next time tell him to call a real cop and see if you still get a warning

Anybody seen the white f-250 in Pearland? It's got like a 6 inch lift, diesel, 4x4, rims, and mud tires.

Yeah like Pearland really needs all that . Great to know our tax dollars are burning that trucks diesel all day long.
