Venting about the lone cop on the Brooklyn Bridge

So I don’t know how many of you people live in Brooklyn or ever have the opportunity to drive on one of the most beautiful suspension bridges anywhere, but for those of you who do- you will know exactly what this post is about. For those of you who don’t, you have to wait till tomorrow for another post.

When entering the Brooklyn Bridge from the Manhattan side you must merge with all the other traffic, whether its from the FDR or the streets, on the right side of the bridge 24 hours a day 7 days a week there sits a cop car with its lights flashing, with a cop sitting in the car on the cell phone. I have no idea what the cop must have done to receive that sort of punishment, but there is no where to even take a piss, let alone grab a donut and coffee.

But it just bothers me because it always slows down traffic, cost money and doesn’t do a damned thing. The guy is not there to pull people over, or to check for hazardous materials. All he does is sit there. Is there a point to this madness.
