Duane Hanson, "Museun Guard"
There's a high number of second hand cop cars on the Indianapolis streets, usually repossessed by obviously non-cop black folks. Tinted windows and double rear view mirrors are retained; bumper stickers for fallen officers remain smeared across the back. Drivers slow down when they pass.
They warrant a double-take, and probably prevent pull-overs by authorities who don't look twice.
But it's kind of a bummer having fake cops around.
More jaunts in the voluntary panopticon.
Also in cars: The other day I saw a dashboard mirror festooned with fuzzy twenty-sided dice!
