    Nothing can be called what they actually are in California. Chop shop is what they are and by any other name, they are still chop shops.

    A certain county in East Tennessee was a home to numerous cop chop shops. That county used-to and may-still have its chop shops "protected" -- and often owned -- by the county sheriff's department. A stolen car's most valuable use is in the selling of its parts. Selling intact stolen cars is much more dangerous in that hot serial numbers will inevitably get you into a world of trouble.

    Cops used to have the concession in the hauling of moonshine out of that county. Part of the movie Thunder Road (Robert Michum wrote and acted in that film; part of production?, don't know if he fronted his own money) was filmed in the county (might as well be, the movie borrowed heavily from the stories from that county). After legal liquor started to kill the moonshine trade, the cash businesses became marijuana agriculture and stolen car parts. Did the sheriff's department get involved in those industries? What do you think!

    Cops down there WILL murder you if you attempt to mess with their operations. The county is mostly composed of forest land. It is easy to get "disappeared" in such wilderness areas.

    A co-worker got his truck stolen. He goes a scouting. Guess which county he scouts first. Finds his truck in fenced shop-shop yard. Keeps his mouth shut until he finds out who owns/protects the yard. The latter was a necessary thing to do. Yep, turned out the place was run by law enforcement. Good thing friend didn't act first. At the time, he was a young man with a life to lead. He only had one felony conviction on him and a minor one at that (he beat a guy real bad using a metal object, not a gun, but it doesn't have to be a gun). Even if he had lived, the law would have annihilated his life.

    Might makes right.

    More issues have been settled by force than peaceful discussion.

    Is California now like Mumbai or Tijuana? Hard to decide at this point.
