    I got pulled over going 60mph in a 45mph work zone at midnight that hasnt had any workers in that area for weeks. Illinois likes to keep up work zones after they've been finished just for writing tickets.

    Eric, you got balls posting this...I hope it doesn't get locked. We appreciate the thanks, but its our job. Some cops do their job well, some don't.

    Out of several hundred thousand cops, it bugs me people base their .02 on one cop.

    Crime is crime, regardless if you're speeding, have too dark of tint or if you murder someone. Laws are laws, some cops are sticklers, some aren't.

    This is a police officer appreciation thread, if you don't appreciate cops, why are you posting!?

    thats because we pay there salary and your damn right im gonna call them and make them do there job, and most likely they wont do vary much of a good one, at least the guys here in my city dont, its a small one, rosamond CA. i keep a gun in my home loaded in case a tweaker tries to pop in and say hello while im in bed :Dlol because i know there response time is damn near an hour...unless your getting a DUI than every cop in the whole city pulls up lol been there while my friend got his dui who wasn't even drunk, i watched him drink 2 beers than water for hours before we left. i was the drunk one in the passenger seat oh and that reminds me while that was going on they had me call my sister to come pick me up and i shit you not an officer (that i had supenad to court for a case i was fighting) leave the sceen just to intercepted her, (because he thought he had heard me say she was out with us) pulled her over for a license plate bulb being out and gave her a field sobriety test (she had just left her house from waking up to my call) and when she checked out ok he said "your free to go, looks like your light is working again" and returned to the scene to eventually call me back out of my sister car after i was finally released to her by another female officer, who mind you was vary nice and polite to me, look me up and down and tell me "were every where" i ended writing a complaint on him for harassment to me and my sister. and nothing came of that...:rolleyes:

    and to carcharias yeah there job is for the most part easy...like i said my buddies wife is a cop and we talk, she is fat and alot of cops are fat and im fat so i know what it takes to be fat lol which isnt much..lol

    and beleive me you all can hate me for my point of view but i fought for my right to say what i want and dammit im going to lol

    so you broke the law and your mad you got pulled over. lol

    exactly
    :rolleyes:lol

    thanks, but honestly i dont think i have ever seen someone thank a cop on here like people do the military. so i kinda wanted to make it somewhat a bigger thanks than normal. hoping idiots wont come in here, but what was i thinking with that? lol

    lol so they knew exactly what your sister was driving huh? and you know all of this for a fact? cause you were "the drunk one in the passenger seat". :rolleyes:

    but im sure your "stories" are 100% accurate. even the 1hr long wait time when someone is breaking into your house.

    Ha, oh man. Cops didn't make tint illegal. You (via casting a vote or choosing not to vote and silencing yourself) chose politicians to make decisions for you. When your government representation decided to make tint illegal, you did by proxy. If you felt strongly enough against the laws of your state, you should have left before you got caught violating the laws that you, in effect, passed. You decided to stay in your state, which is kept civil by following and enforcing laws. Police officers would be doing you a great disservice by not writing you a tint ticket. If they didn't they wouldn't be following the orders given to them by you.

    All I can say walk a mile in their shoes then get back to me. When you go to work do you need to strap on a gun and never know when you may have to use it for damn little pay, weird shifts and deal with some of the nicest folks at 2 in the morning trust me it gets old fast. If they are on the defensive it's because the public thinks they are all little Hitler’s and really like to fuck with people when the truth is we have to deal with the a whole lot of low life belligerent jackasses every day we seldom get to see the really nice folk.

    yeah in my little town the size of a rest stop and a car driving towards our location...it was a good gamble id say. and i do know that i know more about the situation than you obviously do, and i don't know how drunk you like to get but i dont black out and forget things that happen, nor do i drink heavily enough to be to drunk to understand whats happening.

    Alrighty, so you really think that? I've been on both sides of happy and angry law enforcement more times then I can count. I've had cops pick me up to drive me across town home while it was 4am, -40C and I was loaded drunk and walking home. I've been thrown in the D-tank for giving the only remaining seat in a vehicle with a seatbelt on it to a pregnant lady, at 8pm, when I had ONE beer in me. I've had cops get out and help push mine & friends cars out when we've been stuck. I've been ticketed for going 10km/h over and I've gotten outta tickets when I was doing 20km/h over.

    I could literally go on and on, point being:
    YOU NEED TO NOT HOLD GRUDGES

    I give full respect and a smile every time I have to deal with law enforcement for whatever the reason. Not every cop is the same, and for every bad experience I've had (whether it was me being a retard or the officer) I've had a ton more good ones.

    Cops have to deal with the good, the bad, and the horrible. And just like you they have good days and bad ones. But never assume they are bad people.

    I still love em regardless of my encounters :D

    That was a very nice thing to say. It is also the truth.

    .
    Can't paint every cop with the same brush, I've known cool ones and others, well I hope their kids die in car fires. I have the same exact attitude starting out, they be cool, I be cool, they be dicks, I be dick, it's all up to them.

    It's really the only way to say it, I am well aware sometimes I was very deserving of my evenings Douche Canoe title. But other times I've even been witness to crimes and I've stayed and waited for cops to arrive so I could give em info instead of just leaving.

    thanks to all the cops out there! ive never had a bad experience and hopefully never will. its there job and honestly i would probably be a DB to people if i had to pull someone over for swerving all over the road or going 20+ over, so i understand why some cops might come off as not being the nicest people

    you sir make a good point. i agree there are good cops and bad cops. i guess im just on here throwing my bad experiences out there because i just dont feel we need to stoke there ego. but non the less i agree with you
