So my wife got a speeding ticket today and the officer was very disrespectful. So my wife is on her way home back to her hometown taking her father's ashes home so they can plan the service that we are going to have to pay for. Our 3 children are with her ages 4months, one that just turned 4, and another turning 3 next week. The 3 year old says she has to go potty, my wife speeds up because the town is about 5 miles away and when a 3 year old says she has to pee you only have minutes.
So the Trooper pulls her over, when he gets up to the car she is already crying because this is one more thing to add to her plate. He asks where she's going so she tells him about my daughter and then about her father (the box of his ashes are in the passenger seat). He just laughs at her and says "Yeah okay, give me your license and registration." Then makes her set there for 20 minutes while he's setting in his car. He gives her a ticket, my daughter didn't make it to the bathroom in time. He had no empathy at all.
I was just a little upset after everything she has went through in the past week this happens.
The officer seems to have been more indifferent than downright malicious in this situation. Like G30USMC said, I've seen the old "I havta pee" routine on Cops more than once.
It's unfortunate that your daughter couldn't make it to the bathroom and that your wife is in the midst of a stressful time in her life, these are all parts of life and we just have to move on. Try to be the anchor for your wife & family at the time, letting your wife vent about the situation is priceless, now help her to leave it behind, she has other important matters to attend to.
Just one man's opinion, but you did ask.
Our condolences to you and yours during this time, I pray for peace for you all.

Well just because he is a police officer he is not above anyone else. But yet we see that way to often now a days with our law enforcement. And how do you not view that as disrespectful? If someone says their father just passed away and you laugh I think that is pretty disrespectful.
And the bathroom subject He could of followed her to the gas station let my daughter use the bathroom and then gave her a ticket. They were almost there. That's what's wrong with our country now a days people aren't nice to each other because as Axe said they "aren't required to".
