It's funny how things swing here in France. An unmarked police car stopped a car here in France because they saw a "strange" box on the dash of the car. When stopped, they noticed that the 60-ish year old driver had a radar detector installed, something that is highly illegal in France and can carry a severe punishment.

The cops were further surprised when the man identified himself as a priest. When asked to surrender the radar detector, he tried first to give them something else. He was then forced to surrender his precious radar detector.

Priests and car

Afterwards when being questioned he got angry and asked the cops "Are you not ashamed for doing this job? Me, I am ashamed of you". He then added "I am disappointed what is happening with the military" (Note: the French Gendarmes are military).

He now has a court date, and "normally" speaking they would confiscate his car and fine him more than what the pope earns. But it shows that now one is above the law, even (and certainly not) priests. Obviously the detector had not been blessed...
