    So with all the cases of police brutality and miss-conduct in the US by the police and judicial system, you call me gullible?

    You are comparing apples to oranges. You defend the rioting as a black person's right just because one of their own was unjustly arrested and injured while in custody. A lot of that has happened in the US and not just to black people, but to whites as well. Yet, for all that injustice, I never see thousands of whites rioting in the streets. Why is that? Are whites more civilized?

    Maybe this is a dumb question...but do police vans not have seat belts?



    I was under the impression that buckling up was the law?

    I don't know the answer, but school busses don't have seat belts in spite of the law.

    Doesn't that just seem odd?

    Seat Belts

    All drivers and front seat passengers must wear seat belts. This is a primary law, which means an officer can pull you over and ticket you for the sole reason of not wearing your seat belt.

    If you have a disability that makes it unsafe or impossible to wear a seat belt, you must carry a statement from your physician in your vehicle at all times.

    That above only speaks to the driver and the front seat passenger. All else are not required to have a seat belt.

    I have been in the back seat of a car when it was pulled over, and given **** by cops, for not having my seatbelt on. Not in Maryland, but still. I will promise that that is likely the case iin that state, too. Cops will give thhe driver **** for not having the back seat passengers buckled up.

    The state in which I used to live seat belts were required of back seat passengers. The state in which I now live they are required only for front seat passengers. That seems odd to me.

    The website I posted was the Maryland state website. I have no skin in the game on this issue and I know every state is a little different. Some states require helmets when riding a motorcycle and others do not. I would rethink that promise you made.
