    This is so shady.  This isn't a sting. It's some cop making a few bucks on the side. They got caught by the media with their hand in the cookie jar  

    I mean, look at this.

    "The department hasn't responded to multiple email messages from New Times about the undercover Uber. A spokesperson for Uber declined to comment but confirmed the company had no knowledge of this incident."

      I smell a conspiracy. Some police department cover up. I get it that some days suck and are boring, but do your job. 

      I mean, I know it's tempting. I know it looks like you can do both, but this is wrong and you know it.

    No, idea why but both my ride to and from the casino to my place was hosted by claimed "off duty" police. Both rides, the drivers were very friendly, I admit, but without them having reason and wearing badges. I definitely believe that uber and lyft are both being used by police and the threat is real be careful, respect the drivers as you could be in for a surprise.

    I had an Uber driver that was a cop before! He was driving his personal vehicle so it was a little more normal but he was telling me all about his day job as a cop. I was slightly intimidated TBH...

    Since they are getting paid by the hour it would be a relief if they drove all the tightwads
