Default LEO Stop

Got stopped yesterday on my way to work. Had my head up my bleep and was stopped at a radar stop for doing 35 in a 25 zone, at a place I know the locals frequent. Oh well, my bad, traffic school in my future.

However, the bad part was the LEO. Not a bad kid. Polite kid. Maybe a dumb kid. After he stopped me he he told me to pull behind his car and get out my license, insurance papers and registration. I got out my license and CCW from my wallet as I had the snubbie in the car. I then reached over and got my glove box open to get the rest. The LEO stopped at my passenger side window, turned and looked into the glove box like he was looking for a clue to some unsolved mystery. Now he was in plain view, and had I been a bad guy, I could have easily put a few rounds into him.

He looked at the paperwork, thanked me for showing him the CCW, and wrote the ticket. Like I said nice kid, and I was speeding. Should I quietly send an unsigned note into his chief to get him some more training? I don't want to get the kid in trouble, but he had to be violating all of the department traffic stop procedures, and I would hate to read about him in the paper.

What does this august forum think?

I never, never, never let a car pull up behind my car. If the driver or passengers want to shoot at me I want him or them turned sideways and twisted into an uncomfortable position to do it.

Now for the glovebox issue, he doesn't know what you're reaching for in the glovebox and he needs to watch your hands. It's a good probability he had you and your hands in his vision even if he was exposed through the window.

I'm not saying he was right because I wasn't there, but IMO I'd let it go.

I think the opposite. Handing over a CCW indicates that you are a law abiding individual. Thugs don't apply for CCW.

Telling the officer up front that you're legally carrying probably puts him at ease, as opposed to the unknown of "Is this person hiding a weapon?"

If he was watching me as he stared into my glovebox it was with periferal vision. At that time I had not shown him my CCW as it was in my hand. I handed him all four documents at once.

There were two LEOs there. The other was back at the corner with a radar gun while he wrote me up. She was paying no attention to me at all.

as i was referring to........he didn't know if you were GG or BG in that situation. i just don't understand why they want you to stay in your car, if i was writing tickets, you would be made to get out, and meet me by the FRONT OF MY CAR.

i am ALWAYS outta my truck, and to the back bumper, waiting on the LEO by the time he gets to me.
