I have known personally a few cops in my life. There are some very nice cops and some I wouldn't like or trust as far as I could pick one up and throw him.
But something happen to us that really makes me mad every time I think on it. And I just may take it up with the police chief. Run it by you guys and see if I'm just seeing something in this that is not there. So here goes....
Wife was driving home from her moms around 11:00pm when she met a cop head on maybe a mile from home with her high beam lights on. I guess we've all done this before without realizing the lights were on high. Some people will just flash their lights at you to let you know. That's alright.
Anyway, the cop turned around to pull her over, but she drove on home where there's lots of lights to feel more safe. On the way home she called me to meet her outside. When I got out side, I saw her and a police car parked out at the street. I walk across the yard to where they are. There was one cop at her car door and one at the passenger door of the police car with his hand down by his side on his gun.
I get maybe eight feet of her car when two more cop cars drive up, but they didn't stay but a minute or two, then left. The cop at the police car tells me to stop and I wasn't allowed to go to her. I tell him who I am and ask what did she do. He tells me to step away and go back to the house to wait. I ask again what did she do. And he tells me that he's not going to tell me again to step back and go to the house. And that she'll tell me later. I make a statement that you guys are acting like she killed someone or robbed a bank and I didn't care for the way he was snapping at me. He didn't say anything that time and I just walked off and stood in front of the garage and watched. He watched me the whole time after that. LOL!
Ok, they let her go with no ticket. When she drove on up to the house, she told me all about it. The way she talked, I think the cop made a big deal because she never stopped when he wanted her to stop. They even called on the radio for county wide help. Damn, this town and county I live in is nothing but a tiny hole in the ground with only a hand full of cops. We've got only a couple of stop lights in town even. Guess the cops get bored in this back woods place of GA. But I got to tell you, I'm glad she didn't stop and no woman should stop at night. Cop car or no cop car, a woman don't need to stop when they are alone. I remember a few years back at my hometown in NC, there was some dummy running around pretending to being a cop and pulling women over at night. There were a few women raped and beaten until they caught the guy.
Maybe it ticked them off when she wouldn't stop, but they didn't have to act all snappy and like pure assholes!!
