“…from a class point of view, cops are basically the same kind of blue collar background as the truckers are. And they’re kind of brothers under the skin. The cops will understand based on their wages and all kinds of things, they’re not going to want to arrest these truckers.”

Hey Doug, I need to ask you something. Just what are you smoking these days? You believe that the govt donut squad have much in common with the common truck driver? Huh?? It’s time you switch brands Doug.

Doug seems to be living in the past as if we’re still in the 50’s & 60’s era, when in fact back in those days there actually were some common blue collar traits among the two trades. And how do I know? Because I was actually around back then, and yes it was true. But no longer…not for a longggggg longgggg time now. And if Doug thinks that Canadian or American oinkers won’t dare arrest truckers for just looking at them crosseyed, I’ve got a bridge for you.

But the real topper was to suggest that govt polizei are paid commensurately with truckers. Doug, forget my suggestion about switching brands, no you need treatment.
