Same in NC, some small towns have top notch police forces who will cut people breaks, for example not automatically towing a car and forcing a 300 dollar tow and storage bill, others are really really bad to the point where their run people out of town by any means needful.
An African American officer in CO Springs went out of his way to keep me from having to call a wrecker when I came through his city in July 2010. I was stalling on Interstate 25. Then a good samaritan from Houston came through and got me onto an interstate “pocket” while the car cooled down and later started. The officer patiently re-routed traffice to help me.
