The magic word here is "entrap". I like how the reporter worded that article - the last paragraph is priceless. He'll probably be unfairly targetted by the cops now for that statement.

It's a letter someone has written in to the paper 3Toed.

If there is any hint of entrapment then they will loose in court. It does seem extravagant doesn't it. You'd think that if they wanted to catch young drivers racing then they would buy ricers. Just getting to the NSW Tickford Owners meeting last night I had a Vectra and a Pulsar try and race me. The Pulsar actually ran a red to try and beat me.

I saw an unmarked Toyota Avalon police car today in the city. The blue lights on the dash were the only give away. It was in that ameretto colour the Au1 had.

It's not how much you pay for 'em, it's how much you get for 'em when you sell 'em. VicPol will be laughing all the way to the bank. Oh yeah, they do already, don't they?
