Florida police dress in giant bunny costumes to catch people driving without a seatbelt

(MSN)   West Palm Beach, Florida, police are going undercover as giant Easter bunnies. As morning commuter traffic slowed to a crawl earlier this week, motorists saw a bunny with a sign reading “Have a safe, hoppy holiday. Buckle up!” And through the large, netted eyes of the bunny costume’s large head, the cop was watching them right back, making note of who had a seatbelt on and who didn’t, so nearby officers could ticket them as part of the state’s “Click it or ticket!” campaign. A similar program in Glendale, Calif. was shut down in 2010 for being “breathtakingly dangerous,” but in Florida, it has been pretty successful so far: In just two hours, 50 motorists were cited.

    While wearing seatbelts is important, solving REAL crime and nailing Drug pushers is, I feel, just a tad more important…

    This is what happens when liberal assholes get involved with law enforcement…

    And, just as important, this is bad for the bakery business…bc Bunnies don’t eat dounuts

    Did they look like the "Bunny" in Donnie Darko? (I’ll bet that they did).

    Did they act like "bunnies", too, and rape a lot of defenseless female motorists, on the hood of their vehicles, or, just shoot them through the driver’s window?
