<tieboy> Frey: you were right
<tieboy> er
<tieboy> http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/ptech/04/24/segway.testing/index.html "Two cops at a 4-hour stand-off"
<raven> So the Segway goes 12 mph and can go for 15 miles. Whoo, an hour or two max. That'll be effective.
<Freyja> Segways have all the raw X-Treme RAD!!! appeal of electric wheelchairs.
<tieboy> COPS: on Segway
<raven> Heh, I remember when they were going to cost $3000. Now it's $4000.
<tieboy> DiPS
<spinn> bad boys bad boys, whatcha gonna hey come back
<Freyja> they /have/ to find a way to put the flashing lights on there.
<Freyja> that would be hysterical
<spinn> they issue a helmet with a big rotating light on it
<agent_orange> and an appropriate siren
<Kyol> Freyja: They're going to be used to pull over cripples in wheelchairs.
<spinn> I wanna know how they expect to chase someone on it and not get it stolen
<CrazyClimber> the cops can just make the siren noise themselves, save some money
<tieboy> "We lost him, sir. He ascended a small stairwell."
<agent_orange> "meep. meep. whoo. nert. nert."
<spinn> 'cos you gotta dump it and run after someone at some point, like over a fence or something
<tieboy> "I'm taking you downtown. Now, you... walk... beside me while I scoot."
<agent_orange> "pull over. nert. I know your dad. meep. meep."
<Freyja> have a caged sidecar, for perps
<agent_orange> I was wondering that
<spinn> guess the redesigned cities will have automated travelling cages like the ones circuses put lions in
<Freyja> put him on a leash and make him trot behind

<spinn> but whose dumb idea was it to give it to niles
<agent_orange> car chase now lasts seven hours
<TMR> Cages, or maybe big plastic rolly balls
<tieboy> The only cop not too old for this shit is about 12
<Freyja> will they get to wear shorts, like bike cops?
<agent_orange> what will become of the loose cannon cop who plays by his own rules?
<agent_orange> Frey: pinafores
<spinn> frey: and suspenders. possibly lederhosen.
<Freyja> "kick me" signs
<agent_orange> with a big fuckin' feather sticking up from the helmet
<spinn> agto: he takes his segway to a rogue, shady mechanic who soups it up for him so it can go 21
<agent_orange> that bends at a 90 degree angle at full throttle
