Alright so in my city the common spot for car culture is the legislative building down town....dozens upon dozens upon dozens of sweet rides roll through here and some ppl cuase shit roast tires blast horns w.e so the cops regularly visit the area. Two nights ago the cops tried kicking us out of the area...after some discussion it was all good and we went our separate ways.
Tonight I was hanging out with a couple other buddies and we all had our underglow on while parked....I had my quad in the box and it was strobing red and blues....as we're shooting the breeze buddy says hey...it's the cops ....so I wonder over and start chatting and the cop says we got a call about you and your lights...you have to turn them off.....I said I'm not in violation of any laws officer....first off I'm parked second it's my quad...she says doesn't matter you have to register them....I was like...umm.....nope.....no registration for atvs at all in this province...so she says well I could get you for not being in your tuck with your gun present I said to her it states I must be in attendance of the vehicle....not in it....so of course two more cops arrive tell me it's illegal....that's illegal I'm parked illegally.....I said listen...I'm not doing anything wrong. If you guys want to make a scene just write the god dam tickets and we can let the judge handle it.....we have a traffic officer on the way he will know what's legal and what's not....at this point my buddy is getting a bit freaked out so I asked the cops am I under arrest or being detained?...they said no so I said I'm free to go then? One cop said yes another said no....I responded to that cop saying so then I'm being unlawfully detained and your in violation of My Charter Rights....oh ugh....the other cops pipe up and make it clear that I'm free to go....so I said can you guys move your cars so my friends can leave...they did they were cool about it.....the one cop couldn't believe my rifle is a non restricted or basically an open carry gun given that it's the love child from an AK and an AR......talking to the original cop I said to her....I refuse to live in a police state....like any true Canadian she says oh cmon bud like this is Canada eh. ...get a grip!....I responded saying...you have 6 cops here all ordering me to shut my light show down while I'm parked..... in violation of zero laws....that's not a police state!?!? She immediately just stopped talking to me lol.
In typical social fashion all the lights attracted a crowd and this guy randomly shows up and starts filming he claimed he was a law student but I'm not to sure about that lol....he knew a thing or two il give him that...dudes getting right in thete telling the cops to kick rocks and calling them out ob everything......at one point he's got his phone like 6 inches from the cops face and the cop looks at me and says would you tell him to chill lol hah I told the guy....man give them like 10ft or something otherwise youl get nailed with obstruction lol he did give them some space finally.
Anyways the traffic cop shows up....we shoot the breeze discuss the sections in question shoot the breeze a little more and I'd say about 40 minutes after it all started the traffic cop goes....nope he's fine. He's not doing anything wrong.....so we shake hands and they all kick rocks! Lol
A lot of wasted resources for underglow.....unreal....after all said and done....zero tickets fines warnings ect. Lights kept flashing gun kept hanging in the rack.......like...I get it...crowd control but 6 cops for some underglow while I'm parked is excessive!....oh well! Maybe next time they can take me out for beers instead lol
