I want to share a story that I've shared before, as it seems almost relevant to this thread.

The last time I was pulled over I was doing 95 in a 70 zone, just outside of Sardis MS, on the interstate.

The highway patrolman that pulled me over ended up writing me a ticket for 84 in a 70. On top of that, the guy was so dang polite and courteous, I THANKED him. I then later called his supervisor and told him the man needs a promotion and a raise.

I've participated in a little cop bashing here and there on occasion, but I'll also tell anyone that it is a very specific group of cops that I have no respect for, as I've mentioned earlier in this thread.

any LEO that abuses his authority and tries to disregard someones rights, has no business wearing a badge, and give the ones who act with professionalism and dignity a bad name. those are the ones i respect and admire. that small percentage are the ones who are a traitor to their profession and need to be terminated from their jobs and find one at the local fast food joint!

Drinking and driving... call the cab, the $30 is far far less expensive.

In MI, my attorney advised me to refuse both the field sobriety and field breathalyzer, but said I had no choice but to take the dept based breathalyzer and/or blood test. In his words, it might gain be some advantage, but at that point I would probably be screwed and to get out the checkbook... did I mention paying the $30 cab bill?

We had some LEOs around here get fired and prosecuted for soliciting sexual acts from detainees and inmates. Could this be viewed as an improper or illegal "strip search"?

This is more fodder for cop bashing. The cop lied on the ticket. Sure, in this case it worked in your favor. But for every 11 mph speed reduction break he gives someone, he probably has no problem adding that 11 mph to someone else's ticket. That is a widespread problem. If they lie on a ticket, they will lie on a report, they will lie to a Judge, they will lie to a Jury.

Cops are not the judge and jury. They are highly paid public servants and need to be reined back in.

Oh for crying out loud. He was using discretion and trying to be a pretty reasonable guy.

I don't agree with that. I have no problem with cops cutting breaks. I commend it, it shows an ability to think for themselves. Cops. I also don't have a problem with cops hooking up other cops, etc. I have no problem with cops, just the crooked ones.

Default Warning-Sickening - This Could Be Your Child, Spouse, Brother, Sister, Mom, or Dad

It took SIX Fullerton LEOs to do this to one simple-minded, non-violent homeless man. SIX. And an entire department tried to cover it up.

The big mistake was that Kelly's father was an Ex LEO! He is not letting this slide.

Never, ever say "yes" to a cop when he or she asks if they can search your car. They don't need to ask. There's a legal process to follow to allow them to do it, but if you give them permission and bypass that process, you open yourself up to big problems.

This has not happened to me and I intend to keep it that way.
I agree. My limited experience with the police has taught me that it's almost always going to be better to flip the bird than say "yes" to a search. Assuming they even ask....

Not that you SHOULD flip the bird.

Highly paid? Freakin where? Maybe some of the big cities, but around here LEO wages start at 28k a year, I don't consider that highly paid, just a decent living and making ends meet.
