Yeah, the Crown Vics are easy to spot because of those headlights...there'* also another few things that are a give away- such as "police interceptor" on the back.

I disagree with that. You know what a Police Officers hardest jobs are? Having to knock on a door late at night to notify someone that thier loved one has been tragically killed. And having to listen to statements like that, depsite the fact that they would lay thier life down to protect YOU. Police Officers have a job to do, not always a pleasant one, but they put thier pants on one leg at a time just like you.

Seriously man, come on do you lay your life on the line every day that you wake up in the morning????? i doubt it.

Just because you broke the law and got caught, you you bash the people that are protecting you

WTF is your problem

It'* been said many times on this site, don't bash authorities or you'll be dealt with here. Police are there for you, by your money, to do the laws you want. They have some of the hardest, yet most rewarding jobs in our country, it'* a shame you don't realise that.

That being said there have been a few Bonnie cruisers. I like how the Bonneville has the same light configuration, with amber on the inside and outside of the leadlights.

I have never seen a Bonne cruiser, they would be a good cop car though--maybe lacking in the trunk space compared to a Crown Vic (which, trunk space is an important factor), but still good, powerful cars.

Another thing Police Officers have to deal with is enforcing the laws THEY personally don't agree with! They are sworn to uphold ALL laws, so they have to do it whether they think its silly or not! But they have to keep personal bias at home during thier patrols
