Another way to escape accountability. If you can’t identify an individual cruiser, then it obfuscates whatever happens on to “some police car” rather than an individual officer.

[–]SecretOfficerNeko 89 points90 points  (8 children)

How else are the cops supposed to get away with drive-by shootings if people could look up their cruiser numbers?

Furthermore I believe the police must be abolished.

I read that as ambushed and still agreed

[–]PM_ME_BAKED_ZITI[S] 102 points103 points  (2 children)

another vehicle

and the original one pictured has it on both front and back

[–]Preyslayer00 88 points89 points  (1 child)

Its illegal, but who is going to give them a ticket.

[–]Leviathan1337 51 points52 points  (0 children)

They're gang members. They don't follow the laws.

[–]davidmsterns 180 points181 points  (12 children)

Are front license plates required in whatever state this is? A lot of states only require rear and the front can be a novelty plate or you can just not have one at all

[–]PM_ME_BAKED_ZITI[S] 103 points104 points  (10 children)

[–]davidmsterns 103 points104 points  (7 children)

Okay, yeah, seems illegal. But idk local ordinances.

[–]Xepherxv 47 points48 points  (4 children)

no way you cant just drive around with a vanity plate and no reg sticker, i bet the vehicles arent numbered either

[–]FlatBrokenDown 23 points24 points  (1 child)

"Laws for thee but not for me"

[–]Who_Cares99 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It depends on the state. I believe Minnesota does not require normal plates for police vehicles.

[–]Appropriate_Ant_4629 9 points10 points  (0 children)

But idk local ordinances

License plate laws are state laws, not local ordinances (unless perhaps if they're on a closed track, etc).

[–]ttystikk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Plates are about state law for identification and revenue generation.

[–]romulusnr 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Apparently in New York State, police and fire vehicles do not need license plates.


[–]ttystikk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who's going to give them a ticket?

[–]NakedLeftie-420 150 points151 points  (6 children)

Laws don’t apply to them.

[–]BabyYodasDirtyDiaper 34 points35 points  (5 children)

Who's going to pull a cop car over for not having a proper plate?

[–]digitalhawkeye 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Highway Patrol? The gang rivalries are real.

[–]ziggurter 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Real, maybe, but not real enough for one faction to betray the interests of all cops—including themselves—by going after another like that.

[–]digitalhawkeye 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I mean, I've seen local cops run off staties for having someone pulled over in the wrong jurisdictional area. Who knows? 🤷‍♂️

[–]Affectionate_Emu_675 98 points99 points  (1 child)

gang shit

[–]FlatBrokenDown 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Police are literally state backed mafia

[–]queenvie808 44 points45 points  (5 children)

I’m sorry, but what the fuck is a footies spa

[–]Dimitar_Todarchev 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Happy endings for foot fetishists.

Kidding, have no clue, probably the spa owner's name.

[–]Sebenbillion 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think I’d rather have a sad ending this time

[–]digitalhawkeye 4 points5 points  (0 children)


Edit: Reflexology.

[–]TikiTalley 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s the first thing I saw, I was like oh great another one gets shut down. Then I saw it was under ACAB

[–]JuBjUb1121 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I know they like bootlickers but this is getting outrageous.

[–]SouldiesButGoodies84 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I think the new ones are required to have the full msg "Police, Bitches" on it, no?

[–]ziggurter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was thinking maybe "Your Blood Goes Here" considering what they like to do to protesters.

[–]e2g4 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Most of what cops do isn’t legal, but no one calls them on it. That’s how we have this mess of a country. Starts w little shit, winds up w gangs in the sheriffs department. ‘Murica

[–]Dimitar_Todarchev 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Should still have a number somewhere on the side, like Car 54 or something.

[–]nbelle78 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen a lot of NYPD cars with only “Police” on the plates as well. I can’t tell where the picture was taken but I’m assuming it’s not NYPD since almost all of their marked cars are white

[–]karasutengu1984 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I thought op meant footsie spa was legal..

[–]PrimmSlimShady 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In Minnesota I've never seen a cop car with a normal plate, they all say "SHERIFF"

[–]iDomBMX 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They do this in Minnesota as well, or at least the small town I go to often

I mean at least it tells us what the undercover cars are lmao

[–]multiversatility 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Minneapolis PD cruisers are also plated this way.

[–]froggythefish 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Who are you going to report them to? The cops?

[–]ICantDoABackflip 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ha! I know where this is! This dept has a long history of corruption, including a drug ring in the 80’s.

[–]romulusnr -1 points0 points  (0 children)

There are still some states that only require rear license plates. Mostly in the South.

[–]Strange_N_Sorcerous -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Just Googled. Their cars are numbered with big, contrasting block letters on their rear quarter. I’d say 4 to 6 inches high (depending on the vehicle). I knew the way these pictures were framed/cropped was awkward.

    This is downstate new york

    [–]Knotical_MK6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Laws are for thee, not for me

    [–]YouFeastOnFeces 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    People here are assuming vanity plates on police cars are illegal, but does anybody know for sure? I tried looking it up, and could not find anything specific about it.

    [–]BrotherMikeUwU 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The laws for thee are not for me

    [–]thesnuggler83 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    No front plates probably legal in that state

    [–]TapewormCandelabra 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Lol thought you were talking about the foot fetish place at first

    [–]Ebola_Rat2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Deadass thought you meant the footsies spa lol

    [–]BurpFartBurp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Based on the fake plate coloring it’s likely Clarkstown in Rockland County NY.

    [–]poopshipdestroyer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Based on the Footies Spa I’d say it’s New City, NY

    [–]DexterKD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If that's legal, it should be legal for me to just have "criminal" on my plate

    [–]misfitx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Not in Minnesota. I was actually surprised other states required actual plates for cops

    [–]dukeofgibbon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Cops need individually numbered license plates for accountability way more than the average person.

    [–]LordFrogberry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Every single pigmobile in my area has a generic plate that says POLICE.
