So let me start by saying that i noticed something during both of these traffic stops and thats apart of why i post this thread. Something else i
wanted to add was some counter balance to the hate cops agenda pushed here sometimes.
First let me go through the stops and then ill post my observations.
Pulled over for pulling in front of a police officer at a stop sign.
Police officer asks me why i pulled in front of him, i responded by saying because he was at a stop sign. I then proceed to ask him what i did wrong.
He didnt asnwer me and asked for my ID. I then asked him what i did and explained that i didnt understand what was happening (dealing with police
tactics 101). He takes my id and comes back a few minutes later and tells me hes letting me off with a warning and not to pull in front of police
officer agaian, have a good day.
Not so bad.
Police officer pulls me over because i accidentally cut someone off in front of a red light (i know i know bad driving it happens). He comes to my
window and asks me for my id and insurance card. I asked him what i did wrong and he exclaimed that i must be kidding him i almost caused an accident
but didnt give me any real reason. So i began searching my car trying to find my insurance card and began to act like i didnt understand what was
going on and asked what i did again. He asked me for my id and walked back to the police car. He came back a minute later and gave me my id and let me
off with a warning explaining that he could have towed my car for not having an insurance card, have a good day.
So.... let me first explain that in both cases i didnt any laws so they couldnt provide me with a reason for pulling me over, i knew this which is why
i asked them first.
Second, my observation. During both cases the police officer were EXTREMELY aggressive during the initial phase of each interaction. To the point that
my fight or flight was kicking in and i had to control my self from reacting accordingly. This is what made me think.
Do they react this strongly to everyone?
The overall experience was better then most of the experiences ive had in my life. Although they were very aggressive initially they chilled out in
way and it went smoothly after that.
Im just wondering if they need to be reacting that strongly and if that causes situations to go south so quickly so often? Are they that fast to pull
Overall positive, but just left me with a few questions.
