Ron Artest -- What's Wrong with this Picture?!

9/8/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ron Artest was stopped dead in his tracks -- after cops saw the dude rolling around L.A. in an oversized go-cart .... and realized something was wrong.

TMZ obtained this photo of the Los Angeles Lakers playoff hero getting pulled over Monday in something called an Eagle Roadster -- a custom vehicle with a top speed of 152 MPH.

Law enforcement sources tell us Artest was cited because the registration on the car was expired. But get this -- we're told the car isn't even registered to Ron ... but somebody out in Tennessee.

Ron -- who was smiling throughout the entire incident -- was eventually sent on his way ... but sources tell us cops were "very happy" he was wearing a helmet.

The Lakers should be happy too.

how language helps enslave us. even accepting the monstrosity of vehicle "registration", for it to "expire" meaningfully would require a change in the data. what the official crime syndicate (AKA "government") means by "expire" is not that your registration is somehow stale, but rather you aren't up to date paying into their sanctimonious "protection" shakedown. most have made this corruption of language and logic their own. people with guns plague us with impunity whenever we're on roads we supposedly own, and most consider this a necessity. vile. the state proves daily that they are not you. you are not they.

Ya...okay 152 mph top speed! I wouldn't attempt that if it was put together down here in the South. Just google Antoine Dodson's name. He and his "southern slang" are viral right now!
He's also from my hometown. Ha!

They are just called Kit Cars down here cuz they come in a box. They're all over the place.

racial profiling ? someone said .
only if a brother is driving a purple cadillac , with leopard interior , while holding a bucket of chicken and smoking a blunt and the beverage is old english 800 or thunderbird, might as well put a watermelon in the back seat
