    4 Let them be put to shame and brought to dishonor that seek after my soul:
    Let them be turned back and confounded that devise my hurt.

    All opinions are welcome as to provide your thoughts. A brief synopsis is listed at the video link. The police department conducted a preplanned traffic stop to acquire information and to harass me. The uncompressed video files are maintained by me for future reference.

    It looks like you were keeping pace with the rest of the traffic. Unless they were speeding, you definitely were targeted.

    By the way, a moving police car's radar can see an oncoming car. I know, because I got stopped this way.

    This is a long video. Viewers should watch between 5:33 and 10:56 minute marks.

    * Yes, I was singled out. The cars in front of me were not speeding and if that were the case, 'why did they stop me'? I am aware of moving radar. However, she had no radar. I had to let the clock run to prove correlation of time and distance. The EDR can certainly verify the data via a scan tool the police have but a warrant must be issued to obtain the data, mostly used for accident reconstruction. I know why I was stopped but cannot divulge the information here. Speed has nothing to do with it, rather 'targeted' as you say. She (female officer) came from behind at least 400 meters with her lights on. I thought maybe there was an emergency. I waited a good 45 seconds for her to pull behind me. Then, she has the nerve to say "It took me time to catch up to you". Yea right, doing 35 m.p.h.! I have internal affairs reviewing the matter. They are probably trying to find an out, which there are none. Thanks much for your input. At least I acquired some sound facts from you. It does not matter, God shall repay. In fact, the SUV she was driving was the same model SUV that was slammed into the following day. Front end completely smashed up. The adage of what goes around, comes around certainly may be true. In reality, there is no other way one can view this video and not see this was a preplanned act conducted by the Cranston Police Dept.

    * By the way if you watch the video closely, there were two unmarked units (SUV) with flashing strobes before I was stopped moving in the opposite direction with the marked unit (female driver) following. In addition, there were more units standing by in the Northwest corner (far left) waiting for a possible confrontation. However, I did not give her the satisfaction, rather biding my time for a future day. You can see the units in the NW sector leave when the matter was nearly rectified.

    Were you targeted by your license plate?

    * Yes, and more so the front license plate. How did you arrive at that conclusion? You are very adept here.

    She sounds like she has a chip on her shoulder and maybe likes to harass......Are you going to to cooperate? Would you like a ticket instead of a warning? Would you like to argue with a judge? It sounds to me that she was trying to bait you into something further and to escalate the situation. Most of her questioning was bullshit. IMO, judging from her tone with you and her reactions to your simple questions, she cannot handle too well an encounter with the public that she is sworn to serve and protect. My guess is that she is put into an ill at ease situation without much prodding from someone. Maybe she needed to remind herself that she was in charge of the situation. She could play a bit nicer.

    In fairness she could have come from a bad situation of some sort ten minutes before she stopped you. Cops are human too and sometimes some of them have to be reminded, in case some of them forget. You may push for a meeting with her C.O. and her and seek an apology.
