Driver earns second ticket for giving officer one-digit salute


www.breitbart.com

PORT HOPE, Ont. - An Ontario driver has learned a hard lesson about respecting authority.

He was pulled over for speeding on Sunday on Highway 401 near Port Hope, Ont., after being tracked by a police helicopter. Police say the driver was stopped and ticketed for travelling 35 kilometres over the posted speed limit.

After he received the ticket and began to pull away, the driver raised his hand and flashed an obscene gesture toward provincial police Const. Bettina Schwarze.

She pulled the unidentified man over again and promptly gave him a $110 ticket.

Not sure if stories like this are becoming more-and-more common play because police officers are feeling stress from the job, or are such circumstances just receiving more press reaction?

As an American, I am not privvy to Canadian law, but I would assume "obscene gestures of the hand" are a rather loosely enforced law.

I flip cops off regularly.

I've never been pulled over for it, not once.. but one time I did have a cop follow me into a Wendy's (fast food) parking lot and try to provoke me to hit him.. Obviously I wasn't stupid enough to do anything, so he left, telling me "I was lucky he was off duty".

Cops are noobs. Flip them off every chance you get- let them know what you think of them, because after all you have the freedom to think freely and express those thoughts as well, so long as they do not hurt anyone physically.

The guy was an a@@, he got caught breaking the law and was ticketed for it. Instead of taking it like a man he has to act childish and make an obscene hand gesture.

I'm glad he got a second ticket.

The guy should have been given a third for stupidity.

Idiot.

The offence? Making an improper hand signal.


LOL ... omg that is great. I enjoy the officers sense of humor.

I don't think it would hold up in court, and I doubt the officer would want to show up (if they even have to in Canada).

You really flip cops off all the time? Man I bet all your friends think you are the coolest guy ever.

I'm sure it never crossed your mind that most cops are honest hard working people like some of us on ATS. Not all of them are bad guys.

But you keep impressing your friends.

Well you can go ahead and assume that, and I'll assume you to be the ignoramus you've proven yourself to be (speaking whilst knowing nothing about me or my friends).

6 out of 6 cops (local, which is all that matters to me) I've ever met were not hard working, nor honest. In fact, I wouldn't respect them even if they had no gun or badge. One of them is even my uncle- and I have told him eye-to-eye how I feel, in an attempt to wake him up (it's done nothing).

Do you have some sort of hard-lined facts, showing the numbers of bad-to-good cops? If so, please share. If not, please don't judge my opinion, because disliking police is just that- an opinion- which I am free to have.

Deny ignorance.

I agree.

What's the point in flipping off a cop. It doesn't accomplish anything. Do something more productive if you think the cops in your area aren't doing their jobs good.
