    Why in the world with gas prices the way they are and the lack of extreme weather do they continue to drive that gas guzzling SUV around like it's a bike?

    What ever happened to our police officer's riding actual bikes during pleasant weather more than once I have heard that brought up that they were going to start I have never once witnessed them on a bicycle.

    Please some one remind me again why they were allowed to buy that gas eating SUV other than they like how they look in it.
