    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    Once I was with my boyfriend and best friend and her boyfriend and her boyfriend was driving 90ish in a 65 (I know, not exactly smart) and of course a cop came along and pulled us over. The cop told him to come to his car and they sat in there for the longest time. When he came back he said he got a ticket for 70 and no points. Nice cop! I couldn't believe it though, because my friend's boyfriend was absolutely PISSED and was not nice to the cop at all!

    Also, once my family and I were taking my older brother to the airport to fly back to Iraq (he was on leave) and we were driving 82 on a 75 because we were running late, and got pulled over. My dad told the cop the situation and he shook my brothers hand, thanked him for his service, and let us go right away.

    My mom is an EMT and we are from a small town with no hospital, so one time she went on a call and they were taking the patient to the hospital in a town about 75 miles away. They usually don't go to this town so they had no idea how to get to the hospital, so they called the hospital, who called the police. Turns out, the ambulance got a police escort through town, and did not have to stop at any lights because they changed them so the ambulance could go straight through. My mom was amazed though, because this had never happened in the other towns.

    Anyway, that's all I have! It's nice to stumble upon a nice cop every now and then...

    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    Cops have to put up with more shit in a week than most of us will our whole lives.
    I've encountered good cops in bad situations and bad cops in good situations.
    I've been pulled over and let off with just a warning, and I've been given tickets when I didn't think I deserved them.

    I know my civil liberties and my rights.
    I also know not to piss off someone who has the power to make me suffer, even if I'm in the right.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    One time me and a bunch of friends were drinking at my friends place back in high school.
    Needless to say we were participating in minor consumption.
    We were all staying in the house not driving around at all and the officer had no reason to come in, but after he let himself in he told us that he knew we were drinking and he didn't really care, but he'd be sitting down the street and if anybody tried to drive away he'd throw the book at them.
    That right there was an officer who knew the difference between some young kids having some dumb fun and any real trouble.


    I also knew another cop from my hometown who always gave out warning for small traffic infractions but knew when to bring down the hammer.


    The good cops and bad cops are the ones who know that they are there to serve and protect as opposed to thinking everybody is a law breaker who needs to be brought to justice.
    Like I said in the other formentioned thread most cops are good people who are given a bad name by the giant power hungry guys that go crazy.

    Anytime one of these cats runs into harms way (ala 9/11, Columbine Shootings etc etc) is a Good Cop Story.

    Seriously, can't believe the disdain some of you have for these cats.
    You must have some real bad ones were you live.

    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    There are many good stories.
    I have friends that are cops that put up with a lot of crap, tough job and low pay.
    I'm thankful for all they do, even if there are some assholes in the bunch with powertrips.

    While patrolling in 1998 I saw a 6 year old girl that I knew walking down the street.
    I knew her from her school and other people in the community.
    I went out of my way like 99% of other cops to approach children and throw the football around or just see how they were doing.
    Anyway I drove by her and waived.
    She waived back and smiled.
    The girl was walking with her mother.
    The mother saw what happened and smacked the girl on the back of the head and yelled "Don't waive at no police" and I could of swore I heard "especially white police".
    That right there was my wake up call.
    And there are thousands of "so called" parents out there to teach their children to hate cops....even before they have any negative interaction with them.


    I never let this incident really effect me though.
    I still do my thing.
    But that incident just showed me right there why there are so many people that hate the police....that really don't have a reason to.
    They have just been programmed by parents, movies, cop shows and peers who enjoy crime to hate police.

    And also the cops that have treated them badly.

    Sorry but I have taught my kids to respect police. But I can say from experince that yes I could teach them to
    not like them or trust them as well.
    I have been pulled over way to many times "Because my vehicle matches a description of somethinjng they are looking for" Or Someone said their was
    "suspecious activity". being critical of someone without knowing their experinces is way off base. Sorry. Think of it this way. If that was Ryans Moats Wife and Daughter would they be justified to feel that way? That is a whol edifferent argument. But I would be willing to bet that there would be alot of people that would not blame them for feeling that way. nLike I said There are some great cops out there. There is one that works at oour school that is one of the best guys
    I have ever met.
    And I know a few others that are great guys as well. But I can also say from experince that I have met more than my share of bads one

    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    So growing up in a small 3 cop town, you pretty much know the cops.
    Especially if you work at the gas station across the stree from the cop shop.
    Yes they like to hang out there....No they don't alway get a donut.

    Anyway, me and another guy that worked at the gas station were good friends with the Chief.
    Used to hang out, go fishing, etc.

    I was invited to his birthday party.
    By the end of the night, we were all sitting on the patio, passing around every single bottle of liquor he had in the bar (probably a good 30), ending the night with Uzo.
    Needless to say, we were all pretty intoxicated....at the police chief's house.....leaving in our cars.

    Now that's a GOOD COP.

    Not sure if this is good or bad, you can decide.

    Ohio man arrested for drunk driving on a homemade vehicle

    MARCH 31--In a law enforcement first, Ohio cops this month arrested a man for drunk driving on a motorized bar stool. That's right, a motorized bar stool, which can be seen below in a police evidence photo. According to cops, Kile Wygle, 28, crashed his bar stool near his Newark home earlier this month and called 911 due to his injuries. When an officer arrived and asked Wygle what happened, he answered, "I wrecked my bar stool." According to a Newark Police Division report, a copy of which you'll find here, Wygle's homemade ride is powered by a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine. Wygle noted that the bar stool could hit nearly 40 miles per hour, but that he was only going 20 when he wiped out late in the afternoon on March 4 (a witness told police that he spotted someone driving a "strange motorized machine" before the crash). A plastered Wygle, who failed a series of field sobriety tests, was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license, both misdemeanors. His bar stool was not impounded. (5 pages)...

    Re: YOUR Good Cop Stories

    I have had many great stories about cops. If it was not for the kindness of these guys I probably would have had jail time and down a lot of money.

    I have been pulled over twice for drinking and driving. Let off both times. One told me time park my car and find a way home and the other just told me to drive straight home. I guess you could look at one of those as a bad thing but I really was not that drunk. I had a couple bloody marys and a few beers.

    I also was busted smoking a blunt on the strip in Vegas. He just told me to put it out. He did not search me or even take it. He did mention that he wished he was smoking as well. The funny part was that he was an older guy.

    God bless America.
