Well what do you want. I can't even count how many time I have seen these cops will be sitting at a light then clear out of the blue. There go the light and sirens. Once they get across to the other side. They go back to normal mode like nothing ever happened. Once maybe twice or even a third time I can see them doing that. But it seems to be on a regular basis nowadays
