@TheStoicCrane Not true for my town / state.
Pigs drive in force, 4 cars in minimum at all times. On the state highways I drive by the pigs once every 12 minutes.
Also I tried to go on a ride along with a police in my town, and they denied me because of my criminal history - they told me I could not be a cop.
So i dont think this article or your thesis is true.
