A cop in Reno was sleeping off a nights drinking in his car and caught a DUI, that's bad news if they are so cereal that they don't even give other cops a break.

so is nudity and especially in the presence of children, hitting suited people with a flamethrower, having a strip club on federal land, driving unregistered and unlicensed and uninsured vehicles on federal lands that couldnt pass safety or emission inspections, having alcoholic drinks in a moving vehicle... etc
i guess your realism is well calibrated. so when are you going to fullfill your civic duty and start enforcing noise ordinances? its about time you did something about that.
