    And I didn't say not waving would get you pulled over, I said hiding yourself would...

      What a lawless country you live in!..


      Just kidding. I wasn't implying it was a hard and fast rule, but reasons to pick from if they so choose. My kid ran his valiant around town a weeks, with it not quite being, um.. kosher? Cops never said a thing aside form a thumbs up once in a while

      Court records show Wright was being sought after failing to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June.

        Facts:
        • Laws are written in the books. So, cops are not the law, just enforcers of the law.
        • A cop would be fired by any competent department if he harrassed a guy for not waving. No other issue, he just didn't wave. LOL
        • Citizens have more laws protecting them than the arresting officer has protecting him.
        • My brother was a sheriff deputy. I'm not against cops.
        • I'm out :)

        No one said cops are the law.... wtf..

        You go try to get a cop fired for saying someone looked suspicious, especially when the subject had actually JUST MURDERED SOMEONE.... Again, read what I wrote, not what you imagined I wrote...

        So? My Dad was a really good Chef, I burn ramen noodles...


        lol...


        your facts are opinions... cya

            I was going to let it lay but you insist. I have Numerous friends in all three professions and we talk, to the person they all said what I described. So this is not my assumption but out of their mouths. All the cops are to a degree, arrogant, egotistical, have a dominant behavior, gung ho and have an attitude. BUT these are the very characteristics of what’s needed. I don’t want a wuss coming to help with some intruder.

              LOL.... humorous yet spot on! Criminals don't "look" like criminals anymore. The big, bad, Harley rider just worked at "Toys-for-Tots", and Ted Bundy so well spoken, polite and well dressed was a serial killer.

                You should have...

                You said

                "Firemen like fire, rescue people like blood and cops like authority."

                I would like to think you are misinterpreting what they are saying, or they're talking big.

                Firemen like fire and firemen like the rush of fighting fire are two very different things. One is an arsonist....

                Rescue people "liking blood" and Rescue people being able to "handle blood" are two very different things. One is sick

                Cops liking authority and cops who USE authority again, two very different things. One is an asshole.

                People do things for various reasons, I never argued that. What I disagreed with is your way of stating that made it seem like all of the people in this professions, acted the way you describe...

                Nice try.

                  I see many posts about being respectful of the autorities or you will deserve what you get .
                  I am curious about how you guys feel about the crowd that rushed the capitol or the Ammond Bundy gang that did an armed take over of a government building . How should they have been responded to and what penalties should be or should have been persued ?

                        I think it's all simple really ~ lets stick with getting pulled over: first and foremost, they know who you're supposed to be long before they approach you, so if you don't match the description or there is anything "hinky" going on in the cops mind, then he/she will already be on edge before they've said a word to you. They are doing their JOB and much like yourself, they just want their day to go as smoothly as possible so they can go home at the end of their shift. Cops are human, this means they have all the same crap in their lives that you do ~ bills, taxes, kids, moms, dads etcetera etcetera.
                        No matter what, if you're getting pulled over, there's a reason. You should immediately be on high alert and ready to do whatever is needed to get the situation resolved and over with without conflict. Some cops are just bigger assholes than others (pretty common in "civilians" too last time I checked) ~ accept the fact that for at least the next 10 minutes you are not in total control of the situation, but you do have the ability to control it's outcome to some degree.
                        You know who's afraid of the police? People who have done or are doing something wrong. Cops are trained to deescalate situations, but if you are going to insist on escalating ~ they are trained for that too. How it ultimately goes is way more about you than most people realize.

                          Really ? Where ? I could only find one that briefly mentioned it. That was the Cup of Coffee sticky.

                          I think its a legitimate question considering the title of the thread.

                              Are you a cop? Paramedic? Firefighter?
                              I’m two of the three. I love fighting fire. Fire has to happen before I get my adrenaline rush. That’s lust a fact. Massive trauma? Has to happen before i get pumped up for a major extrication scene. So yeah. I like fire. I like major trauma scenes. That has to occur for me to use the tools of my profession. I don’t wish il will to anyone. Like i use to instruct my crew, we didnt create the emergency, but we are there to make it better!

                              No, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn express...

                              Seriously, do you LIKE the FIRE or what you get to do with it? You like to FIGHT fire, i get that, it's awesome. Do you LIKE the blood? Or what the presence of it means?

                              Seriously....

                              Oh, and I'm absolutely thrilled you love your job. More people need to do those jobs and do them well.

                              My hat's off to you.

                                I find it hard to believe, but I'm not any of those things. I only know what my friends and relatives are like. My niece is an O/R nurse, doesn't mean she likes blood...
