Cop Rapes Civilian In Cruiser

In Albuquerque, a police officer is caught with his pants not quite down, but nonetheless having sex on the hood of a car. From the pictures released, it looked consensual.

  • Picard234 Would it really be too much extra work to just write a proper full review? These lists of bullet points aren't exactly the stuff purchases are based on. Example, the two points about the interior (cupholder space and door tops) are not accompanied by supporting pictures. The "mileage" is noted but is that observed or EPA? As others have asked, how's the ingress/egress? How much stuff fits in the back? Not trying to be personal here but if you had the thing for a whole week you should have more for your readers than 16 bullet points.
  • MaintenanceCosts On the one hand: nobody should be tracked without their consent, and deceiving customers about how their driving data is used is evil and should be stopped by regulators.On the other hand: don't blame this for your rising premium. Premiums are up because losses are up. Both premiums and insurance-company margins are regulated in nearly every state and increases don't get approved without supporting claims data. Actuaries are very good at predicting losses, and forecasts of higher losses are almost always right.Some part the of recent increase in losses is that newer cars are more expensive to repair, and some part is increased climate-related fire and flood losses. But the majority of it is that everyone is driving like dog sh!t. There are more, and more severe, crashes, and specifically more serious injuries and fatalities (which are the things that tend to max out insurance payouts).
