A cop pulled me over and gave me a repair and report ticket for a brake light. I got out and checked right there, they both worked.
Yes, I've had similar cases years ago, riding a bike to school and being pulled over by some hero-cop who had to pull some U-turns and other
car-acrobatics to reach me and stop me. He said I crossed the red light, at one of the busiest crossroads in town - I simply told him, I did not cross
the red light - he said "you did", I then explained there was an elderly lady who also crossed at the same time as me and I thought that neither of us
was suicidal. He got bothered and asked for ID, that's when I told him, I didn't commit any crime, there is no offense done, I need to go to school so
unless you are going to arrest me now, kindly piss off - I biked away without letting him respond and he let me go.
There have been times where cops stop me and ask for ID or throw some retarded, underhand racist comment at me, whether that be while I'm walking or
biking - irrelevant. I ALWAYS try to bust their balls(After all, they are trying to do the same to me but WORSE! These cops are too stupid to
relativize and comprehend that their actions could affect a person an entire lifetime - through police records). I won't comply, because I know I've
done NOTHING wrong, I look around to see if there is a reason why they are stopping people(burglary etc - in which case, they have a reason to
question folks - and folks have reasons to not say anything). I have one exception and that is female officers - I'll give them a hard time by
pointing out their mistakes, ie. if she wants to see my ID she has to show hers, otherwise I won't believe she's a cop(it's the law). But I won't take
it to court or anything...something I'd be more than willing to do if a jackass male cop decides to boast his badge or behave according to some
This is in the Netherlands by the way. I would probably behave the same towards any cop in any nation, that's why I try to stay clear of the US - you
guys have SERIOUS issues when it comes to abuse of power (something on the rise in the Netherlands as well)
So you're not going to college for law enforcement .... Nobody is forcing you to be a prick.
That's an ignorant statement. There are quotas to uphold and if you don't you get fired or demoted or , so if you want to keep your job you better be
a jackass and hand out fines. There exists peer pressure within the ranks of police, masochistic folk run rampant within the lower as well as the
higher ranks. Wasn't there even an article some while ago of a person who wanted to become police officer but he couldn't because his IQ was too high?
In NYC it was I believe.
