wealthy residents deserve more protection, that's why you have more cops. We have state police here in the boonies, which means no cops unless someone calls.
I used to drive a flatbed truck on state police rotation. One night I get the call a car is on the roof on I84, came across the median and is perpendicular to the highway sticking into the left lane and of course it's snowing like heck, visibility is like zero. So I pull up and the cop is nervous, maybe he saw the corpse who knows, but he's not happy. He's got the lights on and a few hundred feet of flares going so I says " close the lane back 1/2 mile and I'll get this out in about 45 minutes tops." NO GET THIS THING OUT OF THE ROAD NOW. was his response. "what do you want me to do, haul it sideways on the truck?" JUST F(CKIN DO IT I DONT WANT TO DIE HERE NEITHER DO YOU ok bud. Anyone that has a brain knows that cars are not safe sideways on a truck, less so sideways setting on the icy roof. EVEN less safe on my truck (shh he didn't know that). So 2+ hours later with cars skidding by 3 feet away I lost some respect for the state police, when I filed a compliant and recommended that officers should listen to the experts and consider what they have to say in certain situations I ended up losing all respect for them, the stateys I dealt with were like super ego driven over-steroided football jocks. The car kept getting jammed on the corner of the body because it was upside down and sideways, to get the car back off to try again is no easy feat, it just doesn't roll off easy when it's crumpled. To make matters worse it was an impound because of a fatality so no storage fee, just the crappy $40 service call.
