    KISSIMMEE, Fla.---Police went undercover as homeless people in tattered clothes to catch drivers running red lights.
    The undercover oficers watched for lawbreakers, then radioed ahead to other officers, who pulled the motorists over and gave them tickets.
    Homeless Advocates called Operation Vagrant, a sting involving Kissimmee police and Oceola County Sheriff's Department, silly and offensive.
    During the operation Wednesday, officers wore fake teeth and tattered clothing, and pushed shopping carts anlong the streets.
    They also carried small signs reading "Sheriff's Traffic Sting in Progress---Buckle Up."

    Remember the post about a cop in the railyard

    Dressed as a tramp? As soon as I saw this, I thought---Damn! Small world. It may be more common than I thought.

    thats nothing. last summer the cops here dressed up as squeegee kids, and actually went out cleaning windows at red lights so they could peek in and do a seatbelt check. if you weren't wearing one they radioed ahead and you got pulled over and issued a ticket.

    bad summer for squeegee kids needless to say....

    needless to say you should always wear your seatbelt on highspeed chases through red lights.

    yeah i forgot how big of a douchebag you were mapo.

    thanks for taking what i said and twisting it around. it wasnt the act of pulling over people running red lights, its the way they go about it thats in poor taste in my opinion.

    but this was before i saw a picture and one has COPS written on his back and the other has a sign explaining what they are doing (of course, its on a piece of cardboard).

    i dont have to justify opinions to you, mapo. but i guess i just did...

    I understand going 'undercover' but wearing fake teeth?

    Have a little respect for you fellow Americans who might have fallen on hard times.
