    This is why I have nothing on my car. People are out of their minds with hate these days. This is also why I run a dash cam.

    That’s what red flag orders are for.

    We have three BlackVue 900S two channel's. One is set to record 24/7, the others shut off with the key. You can download video wirelessly.

    Most of the cheaper cameras I've seen don't resolve well enough to see license plates, especially at night but are certainly way better than nothing.

    My last name is German,while in school had to put up with "you're a nazi your father ran a death camp..." so after putting up with his diatribe for awhile I asked what his father did in WW II after all you were an axis ally. Actually I was little more graphic in my questioning but it did shut him up for the rest of the school year. Gads people jump to some stupid conclusions on flimsy info.

    You need a well-thought out contingency plan if you are in an accident and the police ask for the camera as evidence.

    1. I do not consent
    2. I will make that decision after consulting with my attorney

    If they take the camera, go on record as stating "I do not consent to your viewing that camera without a warrant".

    Remember, you bought the camera to protect YOU, not hand the other side evidence you were going 40 in a 35 at the time of the accident.

    You should be outraged about Deplorable first and utmost! Everything else applies automatically. This is why red flag laws are so important. You spot a chicken looking like an eagle and now you have a serious reason to file a report. Reporting red/white/black colors, meeting together somewhere, immediately may prevent WWIII., and so on........Basically, red flags EVERYWHERE!;)

    You are receiving a star for monitoring. It is coming, Europe loves it already!

    Expeditions are the Ford-badged version of Jeeps and are mall crawlers as opposed to a monster truck.

    We owned a 2000 XLT until the rear control arms and radiator support rusted out in the same week - despite it being regularly washed and garaged for it's entire life.

    Nothing new, 10 years ago I parked my Prius in Cambridge, and the Prius has a 2" NRA sticker on the back window. I come back to my car to find "Fu&k NRA" keyed across both doors. A real tolerant crowd

    Isn't that a hate crime? He's attempting to destroy your property based on your ethnic background, so hate crime, right?

    Slightly different but way back when I still had a green plate out back I had a confederate flag plate up front. Drove up and down blue hill ave (not the good end) every day to go to and from work. I’m sure you can imagine the back and forth I used to get into daily.

    Pretty sure you could have run him over and gotten away with it by claiming it was an accident

    One of my insureds got into an accident at a Rotary, other operator got out of the car yelling and screaming at her saying she was at fault, etc. Cop at scene looked at other operator's dash cam and told him he was at fault and wrote up the accident report accordingly based on what he saw on the dash cam. Of course the hothead idiot was so sure he was not at fault he probably demanded the cop look at the video. In any event, my client was found not at fault based on the police report, deductible was waived, etc.

    My mother was a German immigrant. My grandfather could see what Hitler was up to and fled with his family to the US pre WWII.

    My mother was in an assisted living facility the last few years of her life, she lived to 98 years old. Towards the end she was confined to a wheelchair. So I bought her one of those battery powered scooters. I still had a vanity license plate from her car that I hung on to so I thought it would be cool to mount it on the back of her scooter. The vanity plate was her three initials, her middle initial was her maiden name and very German. Obviously everybody knew her first and last names but would often ask what the middle initial stood for??? She would tell NOBODY. She was still afraid people would think she was a Nazi, especially some of the last surviving WWII vets that were also living there. I tried to convince her otherwise but she wouldn’t listen.

    YES!

    Hitting that idiot with those things would have blown him right thru the Prius' rear window and back into the front seat where he belonged!

    If you don't mind me asking - what's your engine driven compressor? Are you running one of the setups using one of the old York AC compressors?

    Wonder if I'm going to get in a tussle one of these days while I'm wearing my Imperial T shirt around Cambridge (Costa Rican beer company).
