cop shot

this bumper sticker adorned most of the cop cars in new york city when i was over there last year. when i first saw them i really wanted to get a shot as i thought it summed up america, or at least the difference between britain and america. for starters, the fact that a police car would even have bumper stickers is a little strange - it's seems a few steps away from honk if you're a criminal. i assume the fact that they went to the trouble of producing all these stickers means that cop-shooting is a worryingly common event. otherwise why would someone not just dial 911, i mean it's an easier number to remember. unless it's supposed to plant the idea inside your head that witnessing a bullet-ridden officer is also a money making opportunity. hmm, well i could call the cops, but what will i get out of that? nothing but hassle. then again, if i call this number instead i could get me some serious cheddar*. of course it's a serious subject, dealing with human beings getting injured and killed, yet they still thought the best way to depict this was with a splash of red blood, a gun target symbol for an o, and to introduce the word 'cop-shot' into the vernacular. i dunno, to me and my british ways it all seems a bit too crass and distasteful. but also really effective. they've got a message, distilled it down to the important points, plastered it on every vehicle so you can't miss it, and given you a number that sticks in your head. it fulfils its primary purpose brilliantly, and in that respect you can't fault it. so there's my overly simplistic assessment - america: in your face but effective.

i took this just down the road from these fine citizens. here's the original
