Police Shakedown advice

If anyone is harrassed by Aca's finest. Very simple solution. Cough your brains out!!!! Also do one of those nasty clearing your throat about to hock a loogie sounds that people in Chinatown make while walking down the street followed up by stroking your throat glands.

If that doesn't send the cops running away, I don't know what else will.

Having a live pig in the backseat works too.

That´s a good idea Need, but what do you do if he sa

tarts coughing back at ya? That aside, I tend to agree with zzaa because with the majority of public gathering places closed this thing can´t really spred, hopefully. There are restaurants closed and some open and everyone seems to be wearing the face masks, which is a good sign. When you enter Wal-Mart and grab a cart, an employee steps out and has spray and a rag to clean the cart with, at least they are trying.

Good to hear that they are trying but those masks only prevent a sick person from infecting you, doesn't prevent you getting it, and the blue ones are supposedly only good for two hours, good marketing, the mask people are making a fortune, think some of it is overkill. Good advise to wash your hands, and perhaps an alcohol based product would be helful to wipe tables, etc.
