sorry that my reply is a little late; and i didnt read through all of the other posts..
but i agree that some cops are cool depending on where you are.. they are people too.
the town where i live doesnt have a fireworks ban or anything; sometimes one "badge bindger" will try to flex his arm of the "law" and say you
cant light them off. A neighbor and friend of mine was telling me that one of the newer cops here showed up to their house 3 times about fireworks
they were supposedly shooting off. now they had some fireworks, nothing too big, loud or anything crazy, just some bottle rockets, firecrackers and
other assorted things.
My relatives at my uncles farm; which was just over the hill from where
they were had the "big shot" fireworks, (110 shot roman candle type ones, and others. somewhere in the ballpark of $2500 worth of the good stuff.
the cop was accusing the wrong people of lighting them off.
i had my own "cool cop" encounter this past year; i was driving home from a friends house, which was about a 45 min. drive/30-ish miles maybe, cant
remember. we were having a bonfire at his house and we were drinking. i had waited before driving home; at least 2 hours i waited to become more sober
and to make sure i didnt get in trouble if i did get stopped. now just about 5 miles from my house, i get stopped by the local LEOs and he procedes to
ask me the usual questions, where im coming from, if ive been drinking, ect ect. i was very polite and honest with him.
the funny part of the encounter was when i handed him my license and registration, i took it out of my glove compartment and handed it to him, i left
it open and he told me i could close the box, i attemped to shut it and as soon as i put my hands back on the wheel, it fell back open, this happend 3
more times and each time i started laughing and thought im gonna get in trouble/hell think im on drugs or something. but he started laughing too and
sent me on my way home saying to be careful and telling me that watching my glove box not want to be told what to do was funny.
