When I first heard about this, I honestly believed that I must have misunderstood. But no, no there really are cops chasing people around on Segways. Why, you ask? Apparently chasing crooks the old-fashioned way has become “outdated.” Am I just becoming too crunchy with people who cannot even find the time to walk anymore? I can’t say for sure, but to me this just feels like a really great excuse to ride some fantastically costly new toys. But again, this is just me.

What do you think? Is there any logic whatsoever in seeing cops driving around on these contraptions? Speaking for myself, I cannot help but see this whole thing as tremendously silly. But that is just me I guess.
