Now they want to pull you over for wearing seatbelts and driving the speed limit

I wonder how many people will be late for work or doctors appointments or other important things because they got pulled over for following the law.

double post
but since im here already...

I wonder how many people will get away with crimes because the police were busy pulling over law abiding citizens.

They should, if anything, just take down the license plate number and send the card in the mail.

What if his day job is making nonsense forum posts about expensive sneakers?


No, that's just a hobby. Well, I say hobby, it's really more of a gift.

In this case, though, it's far from nonsense.

The poster seemed to be castigating people for being angry that the police would pull them over while they're trying to go about their daily business, on the basis that the police were just trying to do something nice.

My post was pointing out that sometimes what you might see as "something nice" is actually a slap in the face to the recipient, so don't be surprised if they "rage" over your thoughtless actions. Like giving sneakers to a kid without feet, or pulling over a driver who's already obeying the law in order to avoid getting pulled over.

Castigating? Really?

Naw. I'm just laughing silently to myself at all the rage and paranoia. If they want a pic of your mug or a DNA sample they have other ways. Sometimes a cigar is just cigar.

Good point.

So they pull you over.

First question:

"Am I being detained?"
No?
Am I free to go? BYE

Yes?
Under what FN suspicion? BYE

I mean, we ought to get to know our local cops...and they should get to know the people they serve. We're all human after all. I just don't think when they're "on the job" they need to be schmoozing with the public.

Have a charity BBQ where the cops serve hamburgers and hot dogs in exchange for donations for new gear/equipment. Have a dunk tank (so you can take your shot at the cop that gave you a speeding ticket!) make it fun and informative for the public.

Cops are people too, and just like any group there are some rotten apples. Unfortunately we hear about the rotten ones because they stick out.

I'm a big believer in community patrolling. In a lot of places the cops don't live anywhere near the area they patrol, they may live an hour commute away. Seeing the came cop in the same neighborhood day after day helps them get to know who's who and what's normal and what's not. It also helps build trust between the people and the police.

I wonder what would happen if you didn't pull over.

I mean could they engage a pursuit for not abiding for a stop that isn't for something against the law?

The simple answer should be no, but we all no it isn't always that simple.

So bc a dentist donated $500 to an invasive police tactic its all good?

I'm guessing you've never been violated by the police?

It only takes one bad encounter to leave you dead. I had a close encounter with a leo bc I didn't buy something at a store. I was slammed against my car, cuffed, cussed at, and threatened (we'll take you on a little detour before going downtown hahaha). I can only imagine what would have happened had I been black. Thank god the surveillance video clearly showed me standing several feet away from any goods and not touching a damn thing otherwise I would be guilty until I could prove my innocence.

Might not be all good. Might not be all bad either.

Let's see...have I ever been violated? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe just the opposite. Maybe both.

Sorry, I just don't see anything nefarious (or new) here. They've done this at Christmas and other times a lot from what I recall, in different ways.

We have much greater issues than this much-criticized and feared here community outreach program this appears to be, whether their implementation of it was well thought out or not.

Fair enough, that wasn't what I got from your post when I read it. In the extended context that you provide, however, I would actually agree with you.

Scattergun with rubber bullets, or fish-in-barrels? You can't get the 'reward' without being pulled over for complying with law. Would seem to be an A over T approach...'reward' could be done through driver-databases, with reduced registration fees - keeps the constabulary 'focused' on direct criminal activity of a more violent nature...not, wasting valuable time/resources/man-woman power, telling you what you already know (if you are in fact a safe driver)...your record will show it...no need to get 'pulled over'...explanation, please?

Look on the bright side, if you need a little extra income, you could put a lawyer on retainer and make a trip to this town.

Video tape the whole thing and drive around them to get their attention. Wait to get pulled over and get yourself a sweet little payout. Play the thieves to your advantage.

A paid vacation, if you will.

Yeah lets just talk about the reptilian overlords, jenkins the cat, or chemtrails instead of keeping an eye on the perpetual encroachment of constitutional rights.

Move along citizen, nothing to see here

I wonder if they will be asking for "voluntary " DNA swabs as well.
a reply to: johnwick

You will get a $20 gift card for the voluntary DNA swab...

"Here is you gift card..." *sniffs* "...and may I add that it sure does smell like some good herb in there...please step out of the vehicle sir!"
