Um, that's not the point. I don't get what was so hard to understand about that. If the cops save YOUR life one day... is that easier for you?

I get your point, but a rude cook doesn't have the power to throw me in jail and possibly ruin my life with a false accusation.

I think cops would get better press if the good ones were more willing to do something about the bad ones.

He was cussing and saying "WTF you doing??! Knock it off" and he tried to move foward again and I go "Help I'm being attacked!". He walked away pissed and left me alone because I was drawing attention.

Dudes like that cop is what makes me not like cops.
You think you are tough yes? Do that in Russia to the police they will beat you disrespectful punk. Some of you soft Americans whining about police brutality playing victim to everything even when you act like fools.

fastforward to 2:30

I don't have problems with cops and they rarely have problems with me.

My first ticket was in Dallas... I was going 83 MPH in an 75 zone... and the cop was driving a pick up truck, I have never seen a cop drive one of those until I got to Dallas. His truck didn't even say police on it, when I noticed the lights in the grills before he turned it on it was too late.

Anyways the guy was in a major bad mood, I just gave him the information and asked what to do for the ticket payment. He told me what to do, went to his car wrote the citation came back and gave it to me. Then all of a sudden he was happy, got all cheery and started to ask me what my plans of the day were and recommended I check out Fort Worth Water Gardens... made me think "WTF....?!?!".

Anyways the moral of the story is do NOT speed in Dallas area.

Otherwise, I don't have any other problems with cops.

I have much less hope for humanity every time I see one of these dopes sleeping in their squad cars.
It's a joke here. They don't even make traffic stops because they're deemed to dangerous for the officers. Which would be why crossing streets here is such an adventure as a pedestrian...red lights mean nothing, or speed limits for that matter. They also claim to have not enough coverage or money to do foot patrols or high visibility patrols in problem areas, but there is plenty of money for overtime at road construction sites for an officer to sit in a car with their lights on for hours at a time. Unions at their worst.

Detroit, Michigan. With response times for priority 911 calls being 24 minutes, on average, I don't think anything can be worse than that.

The cop made it look as if he was in a bad mood so you would think twice about being a d**k to him. Once he realized you weren't going to argue with him, he changed his personality.
