"Right now," said San Diego Po-Po Super-Chief William "Hands Down" Lansdowne at the cruiser's inaugural pump-n-bump, "there is a stigma associated with police cruisers. Hoodlums feel self-conscious about being taken downtown in such spec machines." ["Spec" here presumably means, "unmodified, still built according to factory specifications."] "That's why the suspects always run - in a culture where image is crucial, it's just too much of a comedown to get shoved in the back of a ride that's wack. We're hoping that this new low-rider cruiser will help bring law enforcement closer to the community - much closer. As in, the community's punk ass right inside the car with us."
