Easter Sunday while driving home from relatives, I was stopped for speeding. 69 in a 55 :ohwell:

Well guess what?????????????He gave me a warning. (in writing of course), but he was VERY polite and courteous. (I swear I had NO skin showing ; )

When he departed to his car afterrward, he said "you enjoy the rest of your Easter", just please be more careful and slow down.

And off I went with a changed attitude toward police officers. I really wanted to share, because there doesn't seem to be a lot of good news anymore, but the experience really did make me smile. (yes he was incredibly good looking, but young enough to be my son). :laugh::angel:

haha!

Whenever I am stopped for speeding, which is rare these days, I always smile very nicely at the officer and greet them with a smile and friendly small talk. I figure they have to deal with a lot of angry, surly speeders throughout the day so some kindness might make them more inclined to go easy on me.

I must say I have talked my way out of many speeding tickets over the years by treating the police officers in the way that I like to be treated, with a friendly smile and kindness.

Good for you but would he have taken the same attitude if you were a male driver? Many female drivers don't get it until it happens to their son's on a regular basis.
Anyway, be happy and safe.

Of course not.

Not all are souless or bought and paid for ... when push comes to shove their soul will rise.

Caveat is that the good guys with souls and consideration for their fellow mankind are not in the majority.

... yet many suggest the higher energies now in play will have an impact.

???

Is that fair and balanced reporting???


Trust no one but yourself and your source for truth ... rinse and repeat ....

Hello there OP.

You might find it funny that an ex-Air Force MP (military police troop) K-9 drug sniffer came to my yard sale last weekend.
He was very nice and admitted that he didn't enjoy his time as a cop.
In fact, he told me a shocking detail, that while he was performing the role of base narc, an aircraft maintenance troop shared marijuana with him and from then on out he decided that he didn't want to be a drug cop anymore. He said also that when he left the service he smoked some weed.

He seemed really cool, smart, and was self-employed and generous, too.

Not all cops are ****heads.
In fact the last time I had to deal with them (at my house),
they were quite calm and reasonable.

They really hate dealing with stress disorders and the Seattle popo had to take some special classes on how to deal with that stuff recently.
In fact the Fed was investigating their thuggery and they had to re-educate themselves.

There is good and bad wherever you go, in any job title. I was a NY Police Officer for 13 years. I learned to become sensitive and have some heart for the elderly people and the people whom I knew couldn't afford to pay a traffic ticket. I really did have compassion for these people. To say further, The rich snobs whom drove the expensive cars got banged out.

I have some abusive cop stories to tell you .. but I also do have two good ones to tell ... so in the tune of this thread ... ;)

#1) I was a teen, drunk, in a city not my own, did much vandalism, got interrogated by the cops, and the backup, and the backup's backup ... then they let me and my friend go for some strange reason ... I learned a lesson right there -- likely a 'Miracle', (or "coincidence", for skeptics)

#2) Driving without insurance - a $2500 dollar fine at the time, in my 20's on New years eve, going to pick up my GF for the night. Got pulled over, and then escorted back home -- as in he just followed me back home and told me to get some insurance, lol. It's not even legal to have an uninsured car parked on city property in my city, so that guy was being ridiculously kind.

Recently I saw a Iceland clip with a lovely peace officer story. During a riot, some of the crowd started throwing stones at the peace officers. The rioters closest to the peace officers, turned and faced their fellow protesters. They became the first in line for the stone throwers. The rioters disbanded. I bet the peace officers never forgot that incident. Some how the crowd had managed to come from their higher power despite their frustration with the banksters.

Recently our local sheriff was sued by a peace officers he had fired. In court the peace officer had no documentation to prove his case and the judge dismissed the case. The sheriff would not comment about the case but the reporter did mention that the peace officer was a former member of the military and has been known to have PTSD outbursts.

Somewhere else I read a comment that peace officers use to be called peace officers. I think it would be a good idea to start calling them that once again. What a difficult job they have. They need all the respect we can manage to counteract the government's attempts to turn them against the public. The writer explained that ex-military have been trained to kill the "enemies" and may not be a good choice for peace officers. IMO, most peace officers joined to serve society and only a few control freaks make it through their training.

And yes, like everyone else I have seen too much reportage about the out of control types but I still believe most are peace officers and deserved to be called that to reinforce their nobler instincts.

Hi OP,
The same thing happened to me. I was stopped by a state trooper while on my motorcycle. I just talked casually as I searched in my saddlebag for my reg. He did the usual computer search and told me how much it would have cost me if he gave me a ticket and then said, "This is a dangerous road and a lot of accidents happen on here. I don't want to see anyone get hurt." He gave me a written warning. I thanked him and he picked up my glove that had fallen on the road.
I had to go slowly for a few miles as he followed me but that was ok. He didn't know that I had had an accident on that same road years before going too fast on my bike.
Speed can be an addiction especially on motorcycles. I'm sure cops see bad accidents and may speed themselves when off duty.
I've gotten tickets when I felt it was totally uncalled for so it's nice to meet a cop that is considerate.

Want to add to the 'good cop' tales....
Several years ago I was working as a nurse at the county jail. One bitterly cold Feb afternoon, the deputies brought in a homeless man for vagrancy and trespassing. (He had been huddled against the warmer motor of an ice machine at a gas station). Nursing had been called down to the cells because the man had been wearing wet tennis shoes and his feet were a mess.
As we treated this man, I could hear the deputies talking outside the cell....they were discussing the pointlessness of charging him (he had a string of similar charges and no means of ever paying the fines) Eventually it was decided that they would hold him overnight and feed him, then cut him loose the next day.
Once that had been decided came the expected comments; "look at his feet...can you imagine wearing tennis shoes in this weather!" and "I know and check out that jacket."
They watched us for a few more minutes and then came what wasn't expected from the deputies: "I have a pair of boots in my locker I don't really need." and "Ya, I was just thinking I have a jacket in my truck I could live without too."

Compassion is alive and well in my county. :)

After an emotionally-gruelling but physically gentle bust in my home, as the arresting detectives were leaving, we were smiling and shook hands. I definitely got into trouble, but there were charges that could've been made that weren't.

In the last ten years I've been pulled over five times and haven't even received a warning. At my last pull-over the cop was so nice that I actually--without thinking about it--ended our interaction by saying he was a sweetie-pie.

I've never met a cop I didn't like. I am blessed. May you be, too.

Peace Love Joy & Harmony,
Genevieve

coincidentally, just this evening my husband and I and our two grown daughters were returning from a lovely afternoon shopping spree (we live in the country).....one daughter had to be back by 6:20 to be picked up for a course she is taking tonight.....as my husband was pushing the speeding limit as much as he dared a black car pulled out slowly ahead of us and so my husband flew past him doing 120 in an 80.......I said we are approaching the town now better slow down , cops are always around here......he said NO they're not!! ...two seconds later flashing lights behind us.......the guy gets out of the car wearing jeans and hoody and shows us his ID saying he is an OPP and asks what is the rush?.....my husband tells him that he was passing someone who pulled out in front of him.....he says Yes that was ME ..... so my husband says what did you do that for??? .... he then asks for license , ownership and insurance.....looks at the insurance and says do you have valid insurance?? so my husband pulls out another insurance slip, cop says that ones even worse! do you have valid insurance?? I say yes we do for sure ;) So my husband then tells him we were rushing as our daughter has to get to an appt and we are late.........he hands back the ID and says ok but take it easy.......I was in SHOCK! ..... thought it was funny to read this post tonight!

Doing 120 mph in a 80 mph zone without current insurance sounds like a fairy tale, bragging about owning an expensive, high powered European, autobahn ready car and/or being totally irresponsible and uncaring about the safety of others and your family. What kind of values are you teaching your daughters: shop all day, don't worry about time to get to class and then drive like h**l because of your self indulgent lack of planning. IMO the peace officer should have thrown you in jail. I can't believe you would even admit such "F**k everyone else" behavior. And you consider yourself an "earth angel" with such immature behavior!!!! Unbelievable.

Fred, you are right. My dad was a nationally rated race car driver in the 1950s and as a professional, he knew the possible road hazards one could run into on a non race car track and how serious the damage could be to hot rod types. He never risked our safety as we were growing up. He warned me about speeding dangers and he warned me also about not taking up flying because he knew I would try stuff that could cost my license. But these people have "grown daughters" and should be beyond the teenage hot rod, macho stage. Maybe they don't care about endangering others but their parental instincts should cause more caution for the well being of their children. Fred, if they still need an adrenaline rush, why don't they do something else that is lawful?
