So, why do cops get bitter? Its not always the big stuff we deal with as much as the little BS cases. It was a slow day today, so I headed down to the reservoir where some idiot is usually doing something stupid. Right on cue, I see a truck that has driven around a locked gate, over a 10” curb in order to park right next to the water. So, I call in my location and walk down to the truck to have a word with the driver.

I’m expecting to have a quick conversation and give a warning…WRONG! The obnoxious bitch who admits to driving the truck down there gets an attitude immediately.

Her: “Why isn’t there a sign?”
Me: “You drove around a locked gate over a 10” curb to get down here. There really doesn’t need to be a sign for you to understand that’s illegal.”
Her: “Well, my whole family is in law enforcement. I just wanted to show my kids where I used to hang out when I was young. I have a truck! I drive over stuff all the time!”
Me: “You’re arguing like someone who got a ticket. I’m just trying to give you a warning here, but I could change my mind.”
Her: (pulls out phone and starts filming) “I’m recording this for my protection! Who’s in charge of putting signs up here?”
Me: “Well, its certainly not me. Let me give you the name of the person who’s in charge of the reservoir, and you can contact him if you think there needs to be a sign up to tell you that its illegal to drive over a huge curb around a locked gate.”

I just let her leave at that point. I should have written her a ticket, but I didn’t actually see her drive down there. How damned hard does it have to be to give someone a warning instead of a ticket? This is why cops just write people freaking tickets. It’s the few a-holes that ruin it for everyone else. The folks that make an honest mistake suffer because of the occasional arrogant jerk who can’t take a warning without giving an officer an earful of s*&t. Rant over!
The 2 or 3 written complaints I've had against me have been from contacts where I let the person off with a warning...and they were completely code 4, non-verbally combative when I left. I have NEVER gotten a complaint from someone I cited or arrested.

This is so true. Ppl feel almost "justified" in making a complaint once they've just been given a warning and released.

Ya hit the nail on the head there sir. Kinda funny when I used to, and even now, get warnings from the police I feel soooooooo lucky. Not justified, but lucky. I usually go play the lottery that day. still have not won yet

What the hell is wrong with people? If I get busted doing something illegal(speeding is all I've ever been busted for), I should get a ticket, if I happen to get a warning I am happy and thankful.
What usually happens with complaints?

This. Only ever been stopped once got a ticket, and actually mentioned it in here just to make sure I understood the rules. Very happy I got only a speed warning and a non moving violation.

The one ticket I got I was happy he wrote it up for 80 in a 70, not the 91 he got me for. I thanked him for that. I got a warning for 55 in a 45, 83 in a 75, and the biggest, brace yourselves... 121 in a 55... I heard later he wasn't qualified to run radar, so he technically couldnt bust me for it, but I doubt that. I was very thankful I didnt go to jail.
I was 20, had a ridiculously fast car, and was waayyyyy too stupid.
My friends and I got pulled over 5 times that night. No tickets.
Small town shenanigans.

yeah I've been told that before too, and I'm certainly not scared of getting one...but I treat everyone with respect. I've been called in for others complaints bc I was on scene but that's it. I've also apparently made a habit of getting written up for something every year or so...the last one for "unprofessional conduct" related to a chase etc etc...in the end I was fine but video looked bad

It's not serious until the CLEO of your dept pulls you into an office and yells at you and reminds you how he COULD fire you...and then personally signs your write up as opposed to the normal supervisor or IA signature

My job is made a little more difficult by people who don't understand who and what I am. People think I am walking into their campsite to give them a nature hike...and are quite surprised when I cite and/or arrest them. I've actually had a written complaint about me because I "didn't wave at them when I drove through the campground".
