Law-Abiding Citizens Can't Stop Laughing Over Sign On Back Of New Police Vehicle

For honest, hard-working people in a community, drug dealers are often the bane of their existence. People in a neighborhood plagued by drugs have to worry about getting mugged and robbed, have to worry about their kids being offered drugs or being hit by someone under the influence.

It's a never-ending problem, and the unscrupulous drug dealers who are profiting off of the misery are the root of it all. It can feel really good when one of those thugs gets taught a lesson by local law enforcement.

One unnamed drug dealer, known only as the 'candy man', was a particular problem in one town. He would drive around in a big, expensive truck, trying to show off what a big man he was, profiting off of people with problems. Police tried time and time again to get him, but the haughty criminal kept evading the law.

Of course, people can evade the law for only so long. Eventually, the police nabbed him and the drug dealer was thrown in jail. As for that big, beautiful truck he was driving? Well, it won't be there for him when he gets out. The police own it now.

Police are allowed to confiscate possessions used in connection with crimes, depending on the local laws. Often, things get sold to pay for the legal fees associated with such confiscations. On occasion, however, police departments can keep a good vehicle and put it to better use.

Instead of being used for criminal activity, it can now be used to serve the law.

The kicker is that in this one town, police wanted everyone to know just exactly where the truck came from. They put a reminder on the back. It read, "This vehicle belonged to a drug dealer: He went to jail and we are driving his car.”

The locals were so tickled by the message on the back of the truck that someone took a photo of it and posted it to Twitter. It's gone viral, with more people offering up photos they took of similar situations.

At one auto show, a shopper found a police vehicle parked there. There was a similar message across the back window.

Another vehicle making the rounds shows a truck from Myrtle Beach. The side of the car has a message that reads, "This car SEIZED from a drug dealer."

These kinds of messages are the best kinds of public service messages. They make police officers who see them beam with pride at the thought of all the good their department does. They make the local community feel happy that the police are doing their job, and that the criminals who once terrorized their neighborhoods are now getting their comeuppance.

And of course, the messages serve as a warning sign to any would-be criminals who think they can get away with flaunting their deviant behavior.
