What's a missile in this case?

Would you rather a cop grab a quick nap while not on a call if they're exhausted or drive around a two ton missile with a gun on their hip while half asleep.


A two ton missile is presumably a jokey way of describing the kind of vehicle that some police officers use.

    Yep - definitely refers to the large chunk of metal called a police cruiser. +1 – Rory Alsop Jun 23 '12 at 19:43
  • Many of the cyclists I know refer to them as "two-ton killing machines." – Ward - Reinstate Monica Jun 24 '12 at 6:10

    Also cops can legally exceed the speed limit if needed, and high speed is a prominent attribute of missiles. – Paul Richter Jun 25 '12 at 5:16
