A Police State


  An Endless Line of Police Cars 
  Originally uploaded by fredwilson.

I was bikiing on the west side yesterday morning and this line of police cars came down the west side highway.  It went on for at least three or four minutes.

There were at least 50 police cars in this motorcade and I never saw a SUV or some other car that was carrying the person they were protecting.

I have no idea what the reason was for the motorcade but it sure felt like overkill to me.

UPDATE: Lot’s of good comments explaining what this was.  It’s a "hercules" practice session.  I take back my comment about overkill. I am glad they do this.
