    Henry, the cop did issue a ticket, he did not arrest her. The problem seems to be with the judge. Was he required to issue this stiff of a penalty? That's what needs to be found out.

    You kidding me!? lol! Maybe you guys need to calibrate your monitors but you can clearly see that Devon has a pony tail.

    Poor Devon, hasn't she suffered through enough??

    That's not a boy. Look closely, she's got her hair pulled back in a pony tail on top of her head. At first glance I thought it was a chubby boy with real short hair.

    I apologize Mark, but it's kind of hard to get sarcasm from text...

    although, I still beleive it's a point that needs to get across to the older population

    No apology necessary. If anyone should be apologizing it should be me, for getting you so worked up. :wink:

    I live right on the border of Douglas County, so this was interesting to read...

    I certainly don't think the punishment fits the crime, but the circumstances could have played a major factor as to why they got such a ticket...eg, if they were parking, speeding, racing, who knows. I've had lots of friends who were "almost busted" for certain things, and the cops gave them as many BS tickets as they could (lights out, tag not visible, etc) to teach them a lesson. So who knows?

    I personally think that the Eyes should be banned. They are very distracting and are IMHO an illegal use of blue light, especially since many of the PD/State Patrol cars in GA are unmarked....

    Lots of people who commit real crimes get lighter sentences than that, there has to be something else to the story. When the cop (or maybe the judge) asked about the lights the teen's response was probably something like fuck off.

    if somebody with a ponytail has to be a girl, well... I'm a girl then.

    David, do you wear it in a girl's style? Mostly girls wear it at the top of their head, unless we're talking about some weird punk style or something. At a glance she looks like someone with a buzz cut, but when you look close you can see she has all the hair pulled back tight into a pony tail near the top of her hair, which typically is a feminine style.

    Actually, thanks for letting me know. According to your description, I'm wearing my hair as something in the middle. Not the girl style as you mentioned, but also not a guys' style either. [​IMG]

    I've been wearing my hair this way for the past 6 years and just realized about that now. Damn! Again, thanks for the info. (I am NOT being sarcastic)

    Anyone who mistakes those blue lights for an emergency vehicle has some serious enough vision problems that they shouldn't be driving in the first place.

    I see those blue lights all the time, never took them for anything other than what they were.

    Do these Cobra Eyes server any other purpose other then annoying other drivers? If she says she was told they were legal by someone, then she's either lying or her source is an idiot.
