Damn, I sure did miss a good thread. Next time, if someone's gonna start a racist thread, can you label it as such? I mean, you throw people off by putting the word "Jeep" in the title. Like someone said in that thread, only white people drive jeeps so I stayed away.
Next time, can someone let the Slant-Eye know! Damn.
BTW, I do find it curious that the threadstarter said that the driver was a Mexican without a license and it then turned into the general sentiment that he, therefore, must be an illegal alien.
I've found myself in that predicament before, where a city officer told me that my license had been suspended for years, unbeknownst to me. What amazes me is that I've been pulled over no less than 3 times since my license was supposedly suspended and have gone through 2 employer background checks that included driver's record being that I was going to drive company vehicles. NO ONE knew that my license was suspended. Don't know why one city's system was able to tell I had a suspended license, while a state trooper, two other city cops from other cities and two background checks didn't catch that.
The reason for my suspended license--some kind of local ticket from my college town that didn't get paid. The state was unable to tell me what the ticket was for, just that it was not a moving violation and told me that date. But I wasn't even living in the state at anytime during the month the ticket was issued. However, the fine was $32, so I just paid it to get my license re-instated.
In my case, it was rather easy to unknowingly drive illegally. To take that extra leap and assume that if someone was driving illegally means that they shouldn't be in the country, that's something else. I guess that "something else" depends on who's making the assumption.
Yeah, but I'm glad you all got it worked out. Next time, is it too much to ask that someone let the damn Slant-Eye know. Thank you.
