A city in Texas in between Houston and Galveston. Founded by Quakers in 1895, Friendswood is allegedly a great place to start a family and raise your children. After all, it DID make the list for CNN's "Top 100 Places To Live In The U.S." Ask anyone not over the age of 50 and they will tell you otherwise. Being a mostly rich white city (about 90%), Friendswood locals have an incredible fear to anything of a different color, aside from Mexicans who they need to mow their lawns. Strangely, a large majority of the youth believe themselves to be black, and will even go as far to claim themselves a "gang member" in spite of the lack of ANY REASON to behave like one in a city with no REAL problems.
But without a doubt, Friendswood is most notorious for its police force. The FPD is known for its tendency to get extremely excited over the most trivial events, mainly cause it's such a boring city. If you are ever pulled over in Friendswood, prepare yourself as if it were a job interview. Even if you know you did not violate any traffic laws, they will make one up. They will even send more than one squad car to the scene, though this has been identified as an attempt to intimidate you. And even after they give you a ticket, you had better pay it on time. Cause if you have ANY kind of warrant in Friendswood, they will literally send their over-funded SWAT team with assault rifles to your house and threaten to tear gas it even if their is a baby and children inside of it. True story.
