"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Although I don't think it presents any immediate danger.
But I do give to the FOP and State Troopers. So I have a Punch Tag from them that is attached to my Plate. Like one of their Top donation items in exchange. Instead of just a sticker. The State troopers one is a Sticker that goes in the back windshield. I get pulled over less when being followed by LE's either that or they get use to seeing my vehicle.

However, I'm also not a fan of cluttering up my car with stupid crap, so it's not really an issue for me regardless.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
I don't care if people want to plaster their car with that kind of stuff. Chances are they're parked in a garage at home, anyway, and personally I think people take a bigger risk being on Facebook or having important sites - like banks - saving their passwords for convenience. The odds are so much higher you'll get your identity stolen, which can put your kids and you in the poor house, than someone will kidnap your kids. Kidnapping is like most other crimes. If the criminal really wants it they will likely get it one way or another. Hackers don't really target individuals - they just look for the easy score - but other criminals do, especially kidnappers.
Otherwise, though, I leave my cars as neutral as possible. ((The daily drivers, anyway. You can't hide a Torred - aka, Hemi Orange - car no matter how much you try! ). I can't tone down the noise anymore than I have without sacrificing performance but I leave everything else looking as stock as possible so the cops don't get the wrong idea - even if they should. *evil grin*
