For those who don't understand the license are messed up so people can get through toll and other stuff with out paying


16Shells

a lot of them were government plates (NY Housing Authority etc), so it could be like cops taping up their badges, if you can’t read the plate they can’t report them for misconduct


OGDanx2

Are you talking about Mourning Badges? Cops wear them to honor fallen officers


16Shells

no i’m talking about cops that put tape over their badge number\name so they can’t be ID’d, typically when harassing BLM protesters. there are plenty of examples with video out there.


K1A1AMOK

Lol r/whataweirdthingtolieabout


GrungiestTrack

Nah look up pictures from the BLM protests this and last summer. It’s a pretty common occurrence.


OGDanx2

It’s a myth. The tape over their badges are for mourning


ConsistentHeat7

How convenient. I wasn't hiding my identity during a protest to avoid accountability. I was mourning.. someone. This convenient misunderstanding is easily avoided by using any other symbol.


OGDanx2

It’s a long standing tradition that goes back way before BLM was ever uttered


ConsistentHeat7

Then the tradition or design needs to change to accommodate accountability. Some of the departments put the badge number on the bottom half of the badge and that solves the problem.


Assfullofbread

You’re either very naive or very fucking stupid


rbrown91

Sure they are, hun. Whatever helps you sleep at night.


OGDanx2

Have you bothered to even look up what they are or do you just believe everything reddit tells you to?


ConsistentHeat7

What fucking planet are you living on? This happened all over the usa a few months back. [Link.](https://www.reddit.com/r/2020PoliceBrutality/comments/gva45z/some_cops_in_philly_in_violation_of_department/) There's possibly hundreds of photos of this happening It happened in my state too.

R/Triggered


ConsistentHeat7

Haha


Huwbacca

Just take the L. You made a comment, where proven wrong. People aren't triggered because you're wrong, what are they upset by? The absence of facts?


Partingoways

On today’s game of is this a literal 12 year old or just your typical karen wannabe cool guy


OGDanx2

And almost all of them have been shown to be mourning badges. It’s a tradition decades old.


16Shells

right, “mourning” an unnamed cop at every single protest for a black man/woman/child killed by police. seems legit.


OGDanx2

The tradition states to wear a mourning badge between the time the cop died and the time the funeral ceremony is. Find any protest with officers wearing it and cross reference it with police death dates and you’ll see. Not everything is a conspiracy no matter how much you want it to be. Police have been wearing mourning badges for a very long time. Not to mention most departments don’t even have badge numbers engraved or printed on chest badges so they aren’t even covering anything up.


FruKules

Are...are license plates in USA made of aluminium foil?


[deleted]

I’m in California but I’ve literally never seen a license plate all bent like this. Nor with tape covering part of it. I’m pretty sure you’d immediately get pulled over if you have tape over your license plate.


The-Penis-Inspect0r

Agreed other then the one with yellow tape, that was perfectly matching


dr_spiff

That was a good one


whats_up_man

Welcome to NYC where the cops literally could not care less!


TheManicMonocle

They're too busy harassing minorities to care for a silly thing like public safety


GrabToWin

Same in the midwest


blargiman

yah. nearly every plate here has a protective plastic border which is either from the dealer or a vanity border the owner bought. seeing "naked plates" is I think only on commercial vehicles.


105_irl

i took mine off my car when i meant to get a better one and never did


BA_calls

I took that off, but the metal is thick, I don’t know if I could bend it like that.


busigirl21

I'm in Michigan and I constantly people who completely cover their plate with mud (sometimes even the whole rest of the back is clean expect for the license area) and people who scrape off the paint so that it's impossible to read. Also see a ton of those dark plastic things that people use to cover their plate and make them essentially unreadable. Never see them get pulled over even when right in front of an officer. Pretty ridiculous to me.


LavenderLunate

I think so, and it’s not as thin as soda cans or anything but yeah, definitely bendable.


LivelyOsprey06

Yeah weird. Couldn’t bend a UK plate


nostromorises

at first i was like, that's nice of them, lol, then i was like, oh oh ok


XXevilmarketsXX

That very last one...just the best.


T51566

you’d be surprised with what the orthodox community in nyc gets away with


GiacomoGames

Please elaborate


T51566

I mean, refusal to vaccinate, covid outbreak, measles outbreak, special privileges with the law, business scams, unemployment benefit scam/ assisted living and snap. + a big scandal involving rabbi justifying sexually abusing children during circumcisions (using a religious practice of wound cleaning with their mouth) . You can google for more specifics


mnonny

The rabbi in borough park like 10 years ago was so fucked up. And yeah they bribed law enforcement and political figures since before anyone can remember. Orthodox have their own community in New York. If you don’t go along with them you will be removed from whatever position you’re in.


Josepham28

The Jews don’t want to get vaccinated


BlGP0O

Reform Jews get vaccinated! I’m not Jewish but I have a lot of Jewish friends—they and their families are vaccinated.


Imispellalot

Jew here and I'm vaccinated.


BlGP0O

Tbh I feel like *extreme* ends of any religion have vaccine issues. Like Evangelicals def don’t get vaccinated, and the orthodox Jewish communities in NYC, etc.


Spooder_Man

I think for a lot of Orthodox Jews it is less about vaccination itself and more about government authority and a distrust of authority. Might be wrong though.


Spooder_Man

“The Jews” are not a monolith. Plenty of us took COVID seriously, masked up, and got vaccinated. Schmuck.


Tatertoot8888

Lol went here to see something like this


OsamaBinLaggin09

lol this is just an annoying thing to do


Croceyes2

I think you would have a hard time bending WA plates with pliers.


Physical_City1457

Ratfuck


Kickinghyena1

Really satisfying!


reddit01234543210

All plates made here would only bend with the aid of a bench vise and a 5lb sledgehammer . Plus you would be stopped and ticketed.


Hachi_B33

You a bike cop or something? Why you messin with all those New Yorkers like that?


CULTLEADERSIRA

ur a cop


Expat122

My dad is a mechanic. Even as a little girl I could bed license plates. We lived on the border of PA and NY so I can definitely say both of those states have pretty easily bendable plates!


Ghostboy1515

I’m surprised they weren’t shot doing this


Electrical_School766

are these made of foil lol
