The only people resenting the police are those who are too ignorant to know what the police actually do.
WarCry - QPD nabs 66 in latest STEP detail - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
A few years ago, a van was stopped for the "low-hanging fruit" of having the license plate bulb burned out. It was a routine stop that resulted in the seizure of over 500lbs of marijuana. What you deem as "accidental" is not as random as you think.

STEP is a waste of taxpayer money. We are spending 7 million or so already to catch all the bad guys. The State of Illinois is broke. It is ridiculous to add another layer of law enforcement on top of what we already have. I intend to tell all my reps. to quit wasting my money on more enforcement. Enough is enough. These petty tickets are just sucking money out of the local economy and causing more…
