There are thousands of paper plates on the road that shouldn’t be. A loophole with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has allowed fake car dealerships to print and sell temporary plates.
“Texas is the laughingstock of paper plates in the United States,” Vidor Police Capt. Edward Martin said.
Capt. Martin, who is also an executive board member of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas, said he’s been following this issue for years.
“These people have direct access to the Texas DMV e-licensing system. It’s the same tag. It’s just issued illegally,” Capt. Martin.
Today a video from Texas allegedly shows a black woman with a new car with dealer tags still on it as she steals another woman’s food and places the stolen goods in the trunk of the car!
The video that slowly becomes viral had different reactions:

I’m confused. What’s happening here? To me it looks like the woman went shopping and bought a lot of meat. And a Karen is controlling how much meat a person can buy and having a meltdown. There was no sound so only going by the video. What am I missing?

I’m confused. Is she stealing the other lady’s groceries? Why is that white lady not punching the thief in the face? Y’all clearly didn’t grow up where I did.

Ah the classic fake paper plate here in Texas, 9/10 cars with a paper plate are either stolen, don't have insurance, or are going around committing felonies, or all of the above.
