Not much of an exaggeration there, in fact a lot of times that's true! Two years of living in Detroit, along with four years of working there, fully convinced me that while Canada's emergency responses may not be perfect, we've got it much better here.

Yes. I think that, even if the officer wanted to write Moats a ticket, he had many other options than acting the way he did.
