We managed to talk out of it seeing as i only had a permit and was just starting driving, he gave me a lesson about how you should always stop no matter what and that a car was a more dangerous weapon than a gun
I hope I don't offend anyone here, but being in law enforcement I can relate to this story. we see so many accidents from people running lights and signs its unreal, and the amount of deaths we have to see I wish that upon non of you. I still get pulled over and could get a ticket for some things I do like speeding etc... but just remember were just doing our job and we don't know who were pulling over or dealing with so please just be respectful and help us out when you can. hope I didn't piss anyone off too bad on my tangent. oh and sorry for jacking the thread

well it would have been fine with me if he had been like behind me and then turned his lights on, but he was deliberatly wating there behind the bank watiting for someone from out of twon who didnt know that there was a stop sign there, it seems like if they knew that there was that problme htey should have moved the bank instead of having a policeman there becasue thenno one would do it, i twas just something they did to make money and they didnt care about the safety of the people, if they did they would have moved the bank back!

ya sounds like he just wanted to be an a$$hole that day. I don't get some people and why they just don't take the extra time and have things fixed or just go the extra mile, its not like it takes much time or anything.

A friend of mine got pulled over for stopping on a intersection where there was no stopsign. 2 big roads come together with big buildings on each corner and he didnt have a stopsign but stopped since he didnt see if any one was coming.. a cop pulled him over and gave him a warning for stopping on that intersection because its dangerous... my buddy was also with a permit..

I never said just to go through. I would however fight the ticket and ask the judge why the intersection has not been properly addressed for safty precautions and why a ticket was recieved for being cautious. I was just making an observation of something worse the officer could have done in leu of the warning.

I dont think my buddy did anything since it was a warning.. Its about time they start checking the crooked cops though. In my town cops are getting cought obussing their power left and right.. usually once a week here there is a case on the news about a cop that gets a slap on the wrist. The one case that got everything going was a cop goes to a bar. Orders a drink catches the woman (bartender) and starts beating up on her and threatens her that he is a cop and he can do whatever he wants to her. Too bad the bar had a video camera...

Hey 4point...when you say with the TJ ther is no flash required, does that mean it recalibrates itself when it detects modifications?

Your right, I was in law enforcement for 24 years. I also taught school for quite some time and it doesn't matter what profession your talking about, there are a#*holes in all of them. It's definitely an ego and power trip for the pricks. I did not like issuing a ticket and I did not like turning in students to the office for a repremand unless it was absolutely necessary.
