Support your (our) local popo

Things Cops Know ~

-When you see an emergency vehicle behind you with it's lights
and sirens on: pull to the RIGHT, and Stop. We are usually required to pass cars on the left.

-Dunkin' Donuts has much better coffee than they do doughnuts.

-When you're driving in the fast lane and you see a cop behind
you don't, go 5 mph's under the speed limit. We are not impressed by how safe of a driver you can be, we're trying to go help someone (or catch that guy in the SUV that just cut you off). Safely move over and let us pass by you, please.

-If you get a warning instead of a ticket from a motorcycle
cop...go buy a lottery ticket, because you've already beaten the odds.

-If a cop causes a car accident we usually get suspended.
When is the last time you got 3 days off for rear-ending a guy when
working at Wal-mart.

-If you think you can fan all the pot smoke out of the car
before we smell it, good luck.

-We know you've had more than 2 beers. I've never had two beers
and driven my car through the front doors of a Toys-R-Us, pissed my pants, and passed out with my foot on the gas.

-Here's how to get out of a ticket, don't break the law in the
first place.

-If you drive a piece of junk car; this is why you're getting
pulled over. In one week I pulled over 10 cars for "minor" equipment
violations. 8 out of 10 had no vehicle insurance, 7 out of 10 had
suspended drivers licenses, 5 out of 10 had warrants, 2 out of 10 had felony warrants, and 1 out of 10 was a known sex offender with his 12 year old niece in the car without her mothers knowledge.

The 2 out of 10 that didn't have any other violations, one was given a "fix-it-ticket", and the other was given a warning. (if you're trying to do the math many had multiple violations)

-If you've just been pulled over doing 70 in the 35 DO NOT greet
the officer with "what seems to be the problem, officer."

-We get coffee breaks too, and sometimes we run into stores and
do some shopping during them.

-When you're the victim of a burglary it would be nice if you
take the time you spend waiting for the officer to find the model #'s and the serial #'s of the stuff that was taken.

-Some cops are just jerks, but take heart in the fact that other
cops don't like them either.

-If it's nighttime and you're driving a vehicle with tinted
windows and I pull you over. It's not because of your skin color, I
usually can't tell if the vehicle even has a driver until the windows
rolled down.

-Everytime you hear on the news about people running from a
crazed gun man, someone's son or daughter in a blue or brown uniform is running AT that crazed gun man.

-LAPD cops don't like the highway patrol, and vice versa.

-Yes it's true, cops usually don't give other cops speeding
tickets. Think of it as an employee discount.

-If your local police agency has a helicopter everyone knows
it's loud and annoying, but did you know it can cover the same area as 15-20 patrol officers, and safely chase criminals that are driving 90 MPH through city streets. Many times the guy has no idea it's there and slows down.

-Your 5 year old kid getting pushed down by another 5 year old
kid IS NOT a police matter, talk to the other kids parents.

-If you hit your spouse in front of your children, your children
will hit their spouse in front of their children.

-If you rob a gas station your only gonna get $20, but I get to
see a K-9 dog use your arm as a chew toy. For all I care you can keep
the $20.

-In 1 year of patrol work in a large city only about 10 mins.
would be cool enough to be on COPS. But if COPS was about

report writing and accident reports each show would be a year long.

-Every traffic stop could end in gunfire, but we have to be
polite and professional until that time.

-Attention Victims: I need to know the WHO,WHAT,WHERE,WHEN, and HOW. Not what medications you're on or the names of your 15 cats.

-And Last but not least: 99% of Police Officers do their job
honestly and with great pride, we try to do our job well. Often we have to work in environments where we are the only ones that have to follow the rules. A veteran Sergeant told me on my first day of patrol "when you wear that uniform everything you do is a liability."

-We do make mistakes and due to the nature of the job sometimes
they have horrible results.

-Sometimes minor mistakes cost Police Officers their lives, at a
rate of 1 every 50 hours.

I hate the first one since I always have a 2 drink limit (set and enforced by myself ) when I go out, so I'd be the one guy that was telling the truth.

When I got nabbed for 96 in a 35 I already had my wrists out waiting for the cuffs.

Funny stuff though.

Re: Support your (our) local popo

Back in the day when I lived in NH, I had friend who was a little wheelie happy. It seemed on EVERY straight part of a road he was in a wheelie. Well one night he rode a wheelie right past a cop on the side of the road. After the cop gets out of his car apon pulling us all over he says to my friend..."Do you know why I pulled you over?" This friend wasn't overly cop friendly and if I remember correctly his come back was.."Geez officer, was I speeding or something?" Now that was classic, I about pissed my pants.

So I guess the "Do you know why I pulled you over?" one is always a pretty stupid question IMHO. If you get pulled over you obviously did something wrong, and my guess is you know what you did to get pulled over.

Good reading fumb....I chuckled at quite a few of them.
