I know, right? I hate when cops give me tickets for doing illegal things directly in front of them. It is so unfair.
I'm guessing this was probably the reason, too. Usually cops don't give out tickets for minor stuff like that just to be dicks, unless they're trying to curb a behavior because it's become such a problem that people's lives have become endangered (or lost) and they're getting heat from the higher ups. Jaywalking is something everyone does, but if it's in an area with a blind spot and people are being killed, it would make sense.
10: I'm an EMT, I work with police officers very frequently and most are very kind people, and so are the police officers that I've encountered when I'm not in uniform, who have no idea I'm an EMS provider. You've read news stories and maybe had bad experiences, that doesn't define all police officers. You don't hear about the wonderful things they do, so don't speak poorly about the men and women who may save your life someday.
#75 - Very well said! My boyfriend is a police officer and he is one of the kindest and fairest officers I have ever met! He's used his own money on duty to buy a girl gas for her empty tank so she could get home and she didn't even say thank you. It's disgusting how people treat police just because they've heard stories or did something illegal and got mad because they were caught for it.
Are city police so bored that they actually write you out for that? Also you kinda deserve it for not paying attention to the road, you could've been squashed or some shit.
Cops need to meet their quota and the city needs money to umm raise people pension...
