Thread: My poilce story

Last week, about 2 p.m., while driving a nice car, I got stopped by a police officer about a block from my home in Los Angeles. The officer asked for license and registration. "Yes, sir," I said, handing him my license. Before I could retrieve the registration, he said, "Mr. Elder, do you still live at this address?" I said I did. He said: "OK. I stopped you because you rolled through a stop sign. Two pedestrians saw you, and they gestured to me, as if saying, 'Are you going to do something about that?' So I felt I had to stop you. I'm not looking for area residents. I'm looking for people who don't live here who might be committing crimes. You're fine."
I did roll through the stop sign. He could have ticketed me. Rather, he responded to my politeness with politeness. Besides, don't we want a proactive police department that, within the law, doesn't just react to crime but also tries to prevent it?
Cops routinely deal with conflict, angry citizens and quite often the worst of the worst -- while going to work every day willing to take a bullet for someone they don't even know.
Even Henry You-Don't-Know-Who-You're-Messing-With Gates should understand that.
Cops are human beings, too.

Polite people are dealt with politely. Morons get the book thrown at them. Have a nice day. :)-
In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.
Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

Seventy years has taught me that there are a lot of people running around with chips on their shoulders. They come in all colors, shapes, and sizes, and for any reason they'll hate just about anything.
Not much to be done about it, except to expect it. Just my 2¢.....
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

I couldn't be bothered reading the OP but I did notice it did not have a link to DU.
If any mods are on, I think he likes to have his posts moved to Stupid Liberal Tricks.Be Not Afraid.

Do you DUmmies even try when you make up your fanciful tales?
There isn't a single judge in the whole country that would allow you to talk to them like that in their court. If you EVER gave that kind of attitude to any judge you would immediately be held in contempt.
I know you fruits like to spin tales of how awesome you are, but really no, you didn't say that. Please try again.
Remember this is CU, which is decidely not DU. There isn't going to be any hearty back slaps when you tell a tale made from whole cloth.
