Revving up to 5K rpm in the GT will get pretty loud, and you can attract(in this case) unwanted attention. I have a friend with a Mazda RX-8, and I followed him late the other night through a relatively empty urban/business area. He was accelerating quite fast, and I was hesitant to keep up with him(but I easily could) since my car is louder than most. After we arrived at our destination, I remarked to my friend that I can't drive that fast when the area is that quiet, as I was sure that I would attract law enforcement. And with the type of car I drive(and paint job), I don't expect any mercy. I have emphasized that to my 16 year old son who drives a 2006 V6 Mustang, and he is deathly afraid of being pulled over as well(I suppose that's a good thing).
One time when I was followed by a cop, he just wanted to admire the car and give me kudos. Scared me to death though when he followed me all the way into my work parking lot!
In this case, I think the cop abused his position of power, but since it's only happened one time, it would be hard to prove anything illegal at this point. Plus, a cop vs a teenager in a Mustang GT? We all know who would win(doesn't mean Sanctus is guilty). I have witnessed first hand that some cops can be power-hungry and use their position to promote their own agenda, to the detriment of children. Doesn't mean all cops are bad, but try explaining that to a 13 year old girl.
