    I agree. And it seems to me there would be less need for such community outreach if we didn't stop people for the sole purpose of fishing for reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

    What they should do is pull over a car who would otherwise get a ticket and then give them an icecream instead. That would be good community PR.

    "Look bro, just slow down. Here have an icecream."

    And in this day and age there would be people protesting that it wasn't fair to the lactose intolerant.

    I wish they had done that when I was stopped for 57 in a 35 zone in Sandy Springs. The ticket cost me $345 that I had put away towards a Sig.

    Fortunately all crime problems have been solved. But the obesity epidemic continues...

    a man steals money from another man at the point of a gun. he uses that stolen money to buy himself a car and a bunch of ice cream. he gets paid with the stolen money, to drive the car bought with stolen money around, harassing people under the threat of force, to give them the ice cream he bought with the person's stolen money, in an effort to make the people he steals money from think he's a good, and necessary person.

    yes, that's what you want in a society.

    Unreasonable seizure and sounds like distracted driving entrapment.

    It's propaganda to boot, they filmed themselves so they could put it out here to show what nice guys they are.

    When you give a poor person money, it kills it if you take a picture of you doing it to put in your Facebook account.

    So they are documenting and providing evidence of each crime?
