mike mullins 5pts Cheating or taking advantage to make personal gain is just part of the human condition. Corruption is part of our daily lives, from the highest officials down to the dirt floor poor. All this aside, the police officer is probably better off not claiming the car because of the tax liability. He would be further ahead to find a repo deal. It would be a fantastic prize if and only if the contest sponsors were responsible for all the taxes, otherwise it's nothing more than a big advertising campaign. Just another part of our wonderful system!
