So even when they try to do a nice thing they just end up abusing their power and do corrupt things (advertise is not part of the job)


Im not really mad or anything i just find funny the irony


I would suggest that there are nice things that are appropriate and advisable and nice things that are not smart to do, pulling people over for frivolous reasons being one of them.

Yes I realize that, I didn't think they were handing out dog treats, although in a small town I used to live in
The police would give me dog treats to give my dog when I was walking my dog around town.
That worked out for them as they didn't inconvenience me because I was just out walking my dog.

Peace

Well it is Plumas County in NoCal. The county population is about 20K, probably not much going on. It has one incorporated town, Portola.

I guess they have to do something to occupy their time.


I doubt this would go on in LA County

Who paid for the ice cream? I thought California was broke?

The conspiracy side of me thinks...

What if this is a way to pull people over that they are "profiling" yet don't have a legit reason to do a traffic stop? This way, the police can approach the vehicle and see how nervous the occupants are, and if there is anything in plain sight that could be used for "probable cause".

If they find nothing suspicious.... "Hey we're just being nice and handing out ice cream!"

It's a nice idea and does show that not all cops are power hungry psychopaths (which of course they're not)

But, when that ice cream falls into a driver's lap and causes them to swerve and crash trying to pick it up again..is the insurance company going to come after the driver or the cops?

How bout they do their jobs to the standard an officer of the law should be and this wouldn't even be a problem. IDGAF how may ice creams they give out it doesn't make up for the kinds of reasons they have a bad image in the first place. Not to mention I wonder how many people got arrested for something after being randomly pulled over with no probable cause. Their image will get better with the public when they protect and serve us…not themselves and money.

I completely agree, yet I still found this a refreshing video that ever so slightly restored a bit of my faith in humanity. :-)

Don't get me wrong I do think it was a kind act...it's the motive I question. The reason I question it is I have personally been subject to that kind of "let's find an excuse to look into him further" kinda profiling and it's a standard MO for LEO. Plus I feel like it may also be abuse of power and derelict of duty
