Cop 'tries to convert'

Couple with 'Druid Thing' bumper sticker say Christian officer violated civil rights


A traffic stop in Greer, S.C., this month is turning into a holy war of sorts, as a practicing Druid couple claim they were targeted by a Christian police officer who tried to convert them away from their pagan belief.

Debra and Tony Gainey say they were pulled over because they had a bumper sticker reading "It's A Druid Thing."

Tony Gainey was driving at the time of the stop June 10 and was taken into custody on charges of driving with a suspended license, operating a vehicle with an improper tag and failure to have proof of insurance.

1. well I would take this with a grain of salt EXCEPT
that he wrote them that letter: "your problems will continue unless you" become a Baptist, praise jeebus.

lovely

Nonetheless, they did break the law. Driving on a suspended license is pretty serious; they don't suspend licenses for Driving While Druid.

What was it Chris Rock said, "If you want to avoid police brutality, it's simple: DON'T BREAK THE LAW!!!!"

sorry that was tragicomic but reality.
