I had a incident today with my local public saftey. I went down to report that my car had been keyed. When the Leo came out to inspect my car he saw my diodes. He then proceeded to ask "what are those some kind of electronic device?"
I said "yes"
He then said "what are they radar jammers?"
I then said "I don't think I want to get into this again honey and looked over at my wife."
She then said to me "well tell him what they are honey."
I was thinking "shut up but then muttered they are lidar jammers"
I was basicly trying to imply you might want to rethink yourself before you say they are illegal. By saying the word lidar instead of radar implying I know there is a difference electonicly.
He then states sternly "those are illegal!"
I then proceeded to tell him " no they are not illegal radar is controlled by the FCC laer is controlled by the FDA which are two totally different apples."
He then said "well i'll have to go in and find the law for you then."
Of course I knew he was just trying to intimidate me to remove them. Due to the fact that being from this forum I know Michigan doesn't curently carry any lidar jammer ban's. So I just laffed and said " go ahead and look officer your not going to find anything."
He then stated "well when I find it i'll just have to write you a ticket then."
I thought "you go right ahead the nma would love to hear that one in court."
He went into his little cubical and I waited for 30 min he came back with nothing! He couldn't find a single thing to put me in violation! LOL! Good work radar roy thanks all for the education. I got to make him look like a jacka$$.
Then he tried to scare me to take them off again by telling me "well im going to keep looking and when I find the code I'll be giving you a call."
I thought "ya right you douch bag!"
Come to find out 5 hours latter now and no call? Why am i not supprised? Huh sounds like he couldn't find anything, and I the citzen was right? Some Leo's just think they are so smart I tell you. They think that you can't know the law. Well I got news for him I do. Not only that, but I am training to be a Leo.
