Try cooperating for a change they are not entitled to special privelages. Why should everyone else pay the fair and this idiot doesn't have to F..k him. If you don't like a law vote to have it changed, if not then breathe easy and obey them

No.... my friend,,, the color of your skin means nothing to me,, the content of your character and what you did does... balanced by public safety.. a willingness to see what you did was wrong if it was something minor
If you have an attitude and make my job difficult then the same things will happen.. although I might slow down and give you more attention than I might otherwise.. you might not get a break

Now... dont get me wrong.. I have had people chew on me really hard and made me pray right there to the arrest gods... but in the end usually the same result happened... my prayers do get answered on occasion

My job is to maintain civility and order ... if you treat me with same it will end well for both of us.

I dont expect anything from anyone.. Ive been around too long to have absolutes anymore.. I take each situation as unique... I always start in the same place and same way with everyone.. courteous and polite and escalate as necessary.. rich or poor.. good guy bad guy.. all the same in the beginning (provided it isnt a crime in progress or someone being hurt by someone else)

I was trained and train others... your mouth can get you into a fight quicker than it can get you out...but when it comes time to act.. be resolute... be fair.. be legal.. go home happy,,,and unhurt

If someone says thanks for taking me to jail,,, have I "won"... absolutely

@Burgess and FBI

How do you know what cops think ... ever had long conversations with one when you arent doing something stupid or criminal to draw attention to yourself?

Bait black men?... can you actually hear yoursrlf?

In this case suspect....
Didn't comply
Used his kid as a shield... which makes him a grade a dirt bag in my book
Trying his case in social media...

With both of your preconceived agendas I just bet a contact with either of you would be the peachy highlight of any policeman's day!

As to the minority who say no big deal let him ride for free...please show us your front lawn so we can escort him... free I might add... to your house

Wait a minute. You're the poster who stated that women who drive late at night are "skanks."

" I work late nights.. nice girls are home in bed...and you know all too well what a skank is... you wont want to touch them

I call them 3am specials"

Why aren't these cops prosecuted for rape?

Based on your statement, why should we believe you that cops don't profile when you clearly do?

Seems like your the one with an agenda. I just hope you can behave yourself. Otherwise, you may find yourself in serious legal trouble.
