Has it occurred to anyone that maybe the reason some cops do act like jerks is because a lot of people assume they are bad, no matter what they
People are brainwashed into thinking cops are their friends by the indoctrination system, I mean education system. Yet many people end up with a
serious dislike of cops, even with all that early PR. Do you ever wonder how that can happen? Because the cops earn all that disdain and distrust
through their own interactions with people. I believed in the whole cops are here to help BS until I was 19 myself.
I was driving down my unlit road one friday night, doing the speed limit of 45, my road was pretty twisty, it is not really safe to go faster, except
on the one tiny 1/2 mile straight away the road has. Anyways, some prick came flying out of nowheres, and starts riding my ass with his brights on,
blinding me. I flipped up the rear view, but it don't help much on twisty roads, as the brights are mostly bouncing off the side views anyway. On the
one straight away I downshifted then punched it to try get some space between myself and the jerk, didn't help any, he stayed right on my ass
anyways. It was about 6 minutes this douche rode my ass until he flipped on the lights and sirens. I pulled over at the first available safe spot, he
stuck a gun in my face, cuffed me, then him and the backup he called searched my car for around 3 hours, stopping every few minutes to ask me what
drugs I was on, where my drugs were hidden etc etc.
I was clean, I had no record, they found nothing. They "let me off easy" with 10 bogus tickets, the only one that was true was the speeding one from
the straight away, which would have never happened had he not been driving like an aggressive asshole. Friday night, the guy could have been a drunk
for all I know. There is no shoulder to pull off and let people go by, or to pull over safely, there is a whopping 4 inches between the white line and
guard rails on that road. I ended up paying a lawyer 3 grand and still having to pay for the tickets. The cop also threatened me through my lawyer,
the lawyer said the guy was a total nutcase. He disobeyed and order from a superior that told him not to show up for the court date, and then
That was when I learned cops are not my friends. Almost every encounter I have ever had with police were negative, that one was the worst though.
