Two Mini Coopers!
Here's what I sent the mayor of Denver this morning.
What a bunch of asshole cops. :curse:Mayor Wellington Webb

Dear Mayor Webb,
I am writing to let you know how disgusted I am with the police in your city.
On June fifth I went to downtown Denver to have dinner with an associate, and parked and paid at a metered parking space. Upon returning to my vehicle an hour later (with over an hour left on my meter) I was DISMAYED to find a citation on my windshield!
Seeing that the meter was NOT expired, Officer Beason (Badge #168) nonetheless ticketed my newly purchased vehicle for “no front license plate.” I had only received license plates barely two days earlier, and required a special bracket from the dealer to mount the front plate, hence the lack of a front plate. Nonetheless, that is a greedy parking commissioner at work for you, isn’t it?
As a result, I vow NEVER TO RETURN to downtown Denver. If I must return I will park in a privately owned parking lot. I will NEVER spend any other money at any of your cities businesses. Your corrupt parking commissioner and police bank accounts will no longer profit from me. I will take my business and money elsewhere.
I saw the newspaper today showing that Denver has a 12% increase in crime in 2001, and even higher in 2002. How many cars were stolen, or any other crimes committed, on June 5th around 8:14pm? If even one, it could partially be due to officer Beason writing a law-abiding, tax-paying, revenue-generating citizen a ticket instead of patrolling and preventing more serious crimes.
