Being stopped by a police officer is scary. As citizens and members of the public it is our responsibility to know the law and our hope that cops will be officers of justice. But citizen rights are not always respected. So in an interaction with an officer it’s important to avoid doing anything that could result in a risk to our safety. This instructable will walk you through everything you need to know to be safe while interacting with the police.

All of the information in this guide is straight from the American Civil Liberties Union.

Step 1: General guidance for dealing with the police


1. What you say to the police is always important. What you say can be used against you, and it can give the police an excuse to arrest you, especially if you badmouth a police officer.

2. You must show your driver's license and registration when stopped in a car. Otherwise, you don't have to answer any questions if you are detained or arrested, with one important exception. The police may ask for your name if you have been properly detained, and you can be arrested in some states for refusing to give it. If you reasonably fear that your name is incriminating, you can claim the right to remain silent, which may be a defense in case you are arrested anyway.

3. You do not have to consent to any search of yourself, your car or your house. If you DO consent to a search, it can affect your rights later in court. If the police say they have a search warrant, ASK TO SEE IT.

4. Do not interfere with, or obstruct the police, as you can be arrested for it.

Remember:
Think carefully about your words, movement, body language, and emotions.
Do not get into an argument with the police.
Anything you say or do can be used against you.
Keep your hands where the police can see them.
Do not run. Do not touch any police officer.
Do not resist even if you believe you are innocent.
Do not complain on the scene or tell the police they are wrong or that you are going to file a complaint.
Do not make any statements regarding the incident.
Ask for a lawyer immediately upon your arrest.
Remember officer badge & patrol car numbers.
Write down everything you remember ASAP.
Try to find witnesses & their names & phone numbers.
If you are injured, take photographs of the injuries as soon as possible, but make sure you seek medical attention first.

If you feel your rights have been violated, file a written complaint with police department internal affairs division or civilian complaint board, or call the ACLU hotline, 1-877-6-PROFILE.

<p>ZachD1, your first job is to protect and serve the public before thinking about your own safety. You are a public servant and so you serve the public. The Public pay your wage with the taxes they give the government, they pay you to protect them. They have not paid a police officer to worry about his own safety before their own safety. </p><p>Many of these members of the public have no other protection, they have no firearm or other defensive weapon. You have a side arm, a night stick and the ability to call an army of other police officers to help you ... so understand why you've looked like a coward. </p><p>In the UK in Manchester two unarmed female police officers were executed with an assault rifle when they answered a call without any back up. This was 3 years ago and I can remember it. I will always remember it. </p><p>Nobody will remember the coward ZachD1. </p>
<p>I don't think ZachD1 is an officer........abusive officers must be done away with or vaporized or made pure or removed from the face of the earth etc........</p>
<p>That wouldn't leave very many.</p>
<p>Bitch, every human being has the right to protect themselves. Period. End of story.</p>
I'm 49 years old and I smell like an occasional joint when I get patted down they lie for the reason to do that example excuse me might what did you on look at Austin look like you look nervous&quot; I didn't look at your little boy shut up even have trouble in the last 10 years while putting on a plastic glove across the road from my hotel do you have anything in your pockets why are you doing this ? As soon as his hand touched the head of my penis being a man I had a reaction to punch the other men as I flinched he frowned at me and said fuck off I can do whatever I want he felt each testicle and ran his index finger around the rim of the head of my penis and finally he filled my prostrate I could not believe this letter I found out it was illegal but he's going to believe I think they are cowards nowadays I see them doing two jobs looking through pubs like bodies in 1975 with that attitude looking at all the criminals as I walk through the pub I haven't seen. Dealing in a pub in 25 years maybe a little bit goes on in clubs they also 16 and a police dog loves to go through trains and bowls getting the teenager with crumbs in his backpack. The house destroying his life so I watched in each shift cost about $16,000 the average a joint a pill small bit of that tops magistrate gives at an average of $400 in fines by the way I have never seen anybody deal drugs on trains and the constant statement season son could you come at a place I noticed you were on the other side of the street and resource you crossed over nicer I've been working on the same side of the street okay if you can trouble with the law beautiful and that's at the dance starts now I'm going to get them back I have a app specifically the catching top is one button turns everything on and your screen looks like it's normal thirsty Austin can I assist is this something wrong they go no where you goin ? Am I under arrest? no don't you think shopping at Papas reminder arrest on Lotsa otherwise I'm going nine or you stay here so I'm arrested no you're not I'm not being detained ? Well then I'm not under arrest I'm leaving now, if you are pulled over and they want to set your car you cite I do not consent to call searches the traffic offenses they'll eventually push you to do it but watch what happens in. Court ,, Magistrate it says here that you pulled this man over is this correct Mr. prosecutor ? What for? But it was a traffic infringement of a lightbulb ? One of the search this Manske now this is where it gets interesting remember you said I don't consent to the magistrate has lost the prosecution why now he has to figure out a way of the reason and there wasn't one when you win the case would you like to hear one more young man played a joke on the policeman on the station turn his phone on recorded the sound and said officer find it was some big-time drug being dealt The officer was not moved and reacted in the following way what's the fucking deal or is he trying to get him out of business are you ? I say I'm serious I see kids coming out of there and beautiful now then the guy in the good supplied is the kid is a criminal and the way he says it is as if he's been trying now to keep his line and walking around and walked away but he did it a month later and guess what the exact. Same technique the police use the months before this other one did too so what he did was every year record the chain of them and the badge numbers he threatened to put it on the news and the police that is the type to $16,000

<p>An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is james Sowers,i live in Australia,and I&rsquo;m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn&rsquo;t love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain.

True, po-lice are paid with taxes to protect and serve the community where they are assigned. However, if po-lice believe or has reason to believe that law is being broken, it is also his job to stop that from occurring as well as to follow thru and make sure that the lawbreaker is arrested. In carrying out there duties, po-lice place their lives on the line everyday. While performing his or her duties, their perception of what is occurring is viewed thru human eyes and, thus susceptible to human error. They make mistakes like every person makes mistakes but bc they also deal with life and death situations everyday, their errors could have a more serious consequence and open to public criticism, reprimand by superiors and hopefully, like most of us, self criticism and punishment. <br><br>I cannot think of anything more painful than living with any mistake, as a po-lice, that endangered or cost a person's life, innocent or guilty. I cannot think of any person who would be able to live and enjoy their life after such an occurrence. <br><br>I think it's important to highlight that cops are also human. As a human being, in his personal or professional life, nothing is guaranteed, not even his own life. The one exception to that rule is that as human, he will live an I'm perfect life. It is in being imperfect and living an imperfect life that makes him human. <br><br>We have entrusted po-lice with that authority and we are indirectly paying him to retain and use that authority, to proect me, you and all others in their district. We can only hope that po-lice not make an error that could cost mine, yours or his own life.

You are 5 times more likely to be executed by a police officer in the united states than by a terrorist, that's sad so MajHunter get a real job you freaking Traitor to the Constitution
I am a police officer in California. This comment in no way reflects the official stance of my department or the city I work for. The information in this instructable is mostly accurate. You can not refuse to give you name even if it is incriminating. If you are arrested and you invoke your right to a lawyer or to silence, we can still ask you identifying questions for your arrest paperwork for the jail (name, DOB, address, place of birth, tattoos, phone number, nearest friend or relative etc.). The information about not resisting, keeping your hands where we can see them is all spot on. Several people have posted comments that being polite is the best course of action. They are correct. In many cases we have discretion and can decide to not give a ticket, etc. Some people insist on "talking themselves into a ticket" when they would have just been given a warning. If you don't agree with the ticket, you still have to sign it. Failure to do so is a crime and you will be arrested and booked until you can see a magistrate (judge). Also if you are arrested your vehicle may be impounded. It is in your best interest to sign the ticket. You will note that the citations say something to the effect of "Without admitting guilt, I promise to appear at the time & place checked below" You may not like being pat searched, but it is for a reason. We want to go home to our families at the end of the shift, and we don't know you or what you are thinking, or might do. In the last year and a half my department (about 1000 officers) have had six shot in the line of duty, and been in numerous shootings. People are frequently pulling guns, knives, bats on officers in the last few years. Sudden movements, irate behavior, puts the officer in a situation where he has to try and determine in a split second your intention. Is this irate guy jamming his hand behind his back going for a gun, or his wallet? We are working at a disadvantage in that we are reacting, to the action of the person. Therefore we have to make the decision on how to react in mere milliseconds, meanwhile the person has had plenty of time to decide what it is he is going to do. Since the primary goal is for us to go home to our families, the officer may use force to protect himself. To the comments who said that cops have been rude to them etc. Remember that there are a$$holes in every profession and not all cops are rude. Also your actions, inflection, attitude play into how the officer treats you as well. Ultimately if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have absolutely nothing to worry about when contacted by the police.
<p>You are so full of crap. I have family that are law enforcement and I also have friends in law enforcement. You sound like a douche bag and you bitching about your job and how you want to go home to your family unscathed. Well I do too. Just because I have family and friends that are LEO's has not pardoned me from the abuse of LEO's. When I was 15 I ran away and this cop was told I had drugs on me and he pushed me against his car and rubbed me all over especially where he dhould not be rubbing a kid. He was a pyscho and I continue to see inhumane BS from the LEO's in my community and other communities. I do not hate LEO's all I am saying is I have been beat and molested when I was 15 by a male officer. I did not do drugs nor had drugs. I had no idea where to even get drugs. I was just tired of being abused by the boarding school I was at.I ended up going home scared of police and ashamed to where I could not tell a living soul that I was touched inappropriately by a cop.He rubbed me up and down ... He violated me and took something from me that I can never get back. I have PTSD due to that cop beating my head in a shopping cart and then molesting me against his patrol car. Fuck you and your bullshit. I have the right to remain silent and I will utilize my right to stay silent like I have the freedom of speech. Do your job and protect the innocent. I am so sick of police bitching how hard you have it. Some of my friends quit being in law enforcement because they actually like people and everyone hated on them because you guys gave yourselves the reputations that you endure. You do not have to be in law enforcement. Go get another job if you cannot hang. It sounds like the job is just to overwhelming for you.</p>
Absolute nonsense. How dare you. In addition to the numerous lies you told, the claim that if someone isn't doing anything wrong then have nothing about which to worry is patently absurd and any cop knows it. If they claim otherwise then they are either ignorant or lying. You're a liar for saying you can ask identifying the questions for paperwork implying one is required to answer. Suspects are not required to say a single work other than possibly a name. Period, end of discussion. Again, to claim otherwise means you're either ignorant or lying. Finally, spare me the crocodile tears about how risky being a police officer is. It doesn't even make the top ten most dangerous jobs list. But even it was, so what? No one has forced a single person to become a police officer. Stop willingly accepting a job and then bitching about it. If you find the job to be too dangerousthen gget another one. Cops want to be treated as though they are a special breed of human. Nonsense. Innocent people are jailed all the time. One may indeed have nothing to hide and consent to a search not knowing that when the junkie searched their car the night before he dropped his crack pipe for which the driver is now responsible. Never, ever, ever consent to a search. Never, ever, ever say a single word of acop bbeyond possibly your name. Cops are not your friend. They are not here to help. They are here to arrest you.
<p>I want to go home to my family at the end of the encounter, and I don't know you or what you are thinking, or might do.</p><p>Also your actions, inflection, attitude play into how I react and treat you as well.</p>
<p>My state we of PA we have several Police arrested For Rape. Get your cellphone and cloud your picture with write only access from phones. Inform them there being recorded.<strong>&quot;Stop and identify&quot; statutes</strong> are laws in the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States" rel="nofollow">United States</a> that authorize police<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_and_identify_statutes#cite_note-1" rel="nofollow">[1]</a> to detain persons and request such persons to identify themselves, and arrest them if they do not.</p><p>They violated the The <strong>Fourth Amendment</strong> (<strong>Amendment IV</strong>) and will be appealed. If you are not the Driver and you do not live in a state that supports a &quot;Stop and identify&quot; statutes it is Assault for the Officer to arrest or touch you. </p><p><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_and_identify_statutes" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_and_identify_sta...</a></p><p>As you can see <a href="http://www.instructables.com/member/MajHunter/" rel="nofollow">MajHunter</a> is Lying And if he did that to me in California I would see him in Prison Charged for civil rights violations and simple Assault. As California never wasted its time or money with statute. Is Illegal and will wind up costing a lot taxpayer money if <a href="http://www.instructables.com/member/MajHunter/" rel="nofollow">MajHunter</a> just mistaken and been doing that Illegally thinking it was ok... Well that scares the SH%T Out of me!</p>
<p>The Supreme Court did up held this practice constitutional in a case called Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of Nevada, 542 U.S. 177 (2004). The Court held that disclosing one&rsquo;s name does not violate the Fourth Amendment&rsquo;s prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures nor the Fifth Amendment&rsquo;s right against self-incrimination because Hiibel had no reasonable belief that his name would be used to incriminate him. How ever IT's WAIST OF TAXPAYERS Money because its only takes one guy with the last name that sounds Italian or Moslem to overturn it. Under Fifth Amendment&rsquo;s right against self-incrimination! So its just waisting cash to keep these disgusting laws in place but Like I Said California never wasted its time or money with this statute is Illegal.</p>
>>> Ultimately if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have absolutely nothing to worry about when contacted by the police. Oh my. Hold on a second. Wait for it. Wait for it. >>> I am a police officer in California. Soooo... being a police officer from California, you would be familiar with, say, LAPD's problems, right? I was dredging up news stories for this massive collection of links to post as a comment, and LAPD just repeatedly came up, over and over. And I was actually looking for convictions and guilty pleas, not just anything. >>> To the comments who said that cops have been rude to them etc. Remember that there are a$$holes in every profession and not all cops are rude. Also your actions, inflection, attitude play into how the officer treats you as well. Here's the same question I asked jaysbob, since he's obviously dodging it: Since there are "a$$holes in every profession", when a cop pulls someone over, how do you know which cop pulled you over? The good cop, or the bad cop? Furthermore, how about looking at this from a Pascal's Wager perspective. (Or perhaps you think you're the only one who wants to go home to his family?) What are the repercussions of getting pulled over by a bad cop? How much damage can that cop do to you, if he were so inclined?
You know the bad cop if you watch "COPS" and see the A**hole from Passaic county with the thick Jersey accent. That cop uses intimidation to put a suspect into a defensive mode to try to get a confession. While police often do their job, I have seen many with ulterior motives. On a few occasions, I have been stopped by an officer just doing his job, but some "eternal rookies" have performed very poorly in their duty to protect the public. Example: I was a courier, and my route took me through Bellevue, WA (a yuppie neighborhood, almost no crime rate), and as I leave a driveway, the physical shock of me leaving the dip in the driveway causes a headlight filament to break, caus9ing a burned-out headlight. I make it about 200 feet before a cop that was watching me and coming from the opposite direction pulls a screeching spin-turn in front of another car and races up to me at speeds exceeding 90mph in a 35 to pull me over. When he asks me if I know why he pulled me over, I say, "Because you witnessing a headlight burning out is some form of international terrorism that threatens children and more important to you, police?" Many cops will say that this attitude is not recommended when you get stopped, but after being stopped for "driving while possessing long hair", "defensive driving", or "going at a high-rate of speed acceleration" (as they call it in cop-speak) for using my engine's peak power range to accelerate on a 150-foot long onramp with an 800-lb load, one gets a little fed up with harassment by cops on a slow night. Back to harassment by a bored cop, he seems almost stunned that I not only know exactly when my headlight burned out, but that I saw him well before he saw me. Now for the fun part.... I ask him if he'd be willing to drive with his headlights ON for a change for the safety of other motorists, since he was driving with them off since I saw him. I have more driving training than most any cop I have seen. I have driven at speeds on a racetrack to the likes that a police cruiser could never dream of reaching. I have handled situations while driving that no cop without my skill and training could avoid a collision in. I also don't need nor want an automatic transmission to help my driving if I were a cop in pursuit, because unlike them I can handle a manual transmission while driving under more extreme circumstances than most if any will ever see. No cop has any place criticizing my driving under any circumstances, nor questioning my ability or knowledgeablility in handling one. To any police officers reading, stop acting like rookies with personal agendas, do as you say and say as you do, don't ever try to put false charges on me again, and do YOUR JOB: PROTECT AND SERVE THE PUBLIC...Ignoring the reckless drunk to do your ticket-writing hobby for a single burnt-out brakelight of six is not being an officer of the law, it's being a cop, and noone likes a cop. Quit chasing a single burnt-out headlight or taillight, and start actually snagging the reckless drivers that I have had to avoid for over four years that you never pay attention to. Finally, when someone races up to you to report an attempted armed vehicular assault, don't spend their getaway time explaining ridiculous formalities of filing a complaint with a police officer. Get a name of the complainant and persue the suspect, instead of fondling yourself to the sound of yourself lecturing another on "policy", because no policy of yours can address real life.
<em><strong>Promethius -You know the bad cop if you watch &quot;COPS&quot; and see the A**hole from Passaic county with the thick Jersey accent.</strong></em><br/><br/>Response:<br/>Yep, cant stand that dude.<br/><em></em><br/><strong>Promethius-cop that was watching me and coming from the opposite direction pulls a screeching spin-turn in front of another car and races up to me at speeds exceeding 90mph in a 35 to pull me over.<em><strong></strong></em></strong><br/><br/>Response:<br/>LOL Slight exaggeration there maybe? A 2007 Crown Vic takes 16.7 seconds to get from 0 to 90, so he would have had to be a long way away I would imagine. LOL.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/112_0704_police_car_comparison/specs.html">http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/112_0704_police_car_comparison/specs.html</a><br/><br/>Let me explain the reason that cops pull people on bikes over for no headlight. Many career criminals have had their license suspended. As a result many ride bicycles. A burned out headlight (or more commonly no headlight) is a violation and gives the officer a reason to detain and contact the person. It is amazing how many people I have arrested that had No Bail warrants for robbery, rape, shootings etc, just off of riding a bicycle in the street with no headlight at night. It is a tool we can use to find out who someone is to see if they are one of the ones who prey on innocent people. I cant think of one time I or anyone I know has written a ticket for no headlight on a bicycle, but it is a legitimate violation of the law.<br/><br/><em><strong>Promethius-I also don't need nor want an automatic transmission to help my driving if I were a cop in pursuit, because unlike them I can handle a manual transmission while driving under more extreme circumstances than most if any will ever see.</strong></em><br/><br/>Response:<br/>Have you ever thought about why we use automatics? Have you heard the expression, You can outrun Ford or Chevy, but you cant outrun Motorola? Have you ever tried to do rapid lane changes, change gear, and hold a cell phone (Hand microphone) to your mouth at the same time.....oh yeah, only two hands. We have to keep in communication at all times, ESPECIALLY during a pursuit. The SGT, and above wants to hear constant updates on speed, suspect actions, traffic conditions, road conditions, pedestrian traffic, location, directing assisting units where you want spike strips, etc. Non Stop. If you pause for more than a few seconds they will break off the pursuit regardless of whether you are chasing a stolen car, or a wanted mass murderer. Liability. Also you sometimes have to return fire at intersections, etc when the suspect slams on the breaks and starts shooting. There is more to driving a patrol car in a pursuit/etc than driving fast.<br/><br/><em><strong>Promethius-Finally, when someone races up to you to report an attempted armed vehicular assault....Get a name of the complainant and persue the suspect, .... because no policy of yours can address real life.</strong></em><br/><br/>Response:<br/>/sigh. Okay not even going to get into trying to figure out what an attempted armed vehicular assault is to you. We cant just pursue someone. We have to have a legally articulable reason. Why? Because if the dude crashes, or someone crashes into him and it turns out we had no idea why we were chasing him, the other party (or him) will sue both the department, and us. Multi million dollar judgments are kind of hard to pay off on a cops salary. Cops can and have lost everything they owned (home, car, savings, retirement, etc) because of pursuits etc. I'm sorry, I love helping people and protecting the public, but I'm not going to put my wife and daughter out on the street because I went off half cocked at the prompting of someone who just told me to not jump the gun unless he tells me to.<br/><br/>Not trying to be a hard a$$ bro, but you have to realize that every decision we make at work has the potential to cost us everything we have worked out whole lives for.<br/>
<em>Let me explain the reason that cops pull people on bikes over for no headlight. Many career criminals have had their license suspended. As a result many ride bicycles. A burned out headlight (or more commonly no headlight) is a violation and gives the officer a reason to detain and contact the person</em><br/><br/>That's like saying black people in white neighborhoods are disproportionately criminal, so we had better pull them over randomly.<br/><br/>To the black people and the poor people of America's cities, the police are terrorists in the most literal sense. They walk around with weapons and instill fear. They interfere with people who are completely alone, bothering no one. They inject their presence into situations without being requested by anyone, and believe their weapons give them not only the right to interrupt whatever is going on and demand to heard immediately, and indefinitely, but the right to make demands upon our &quot;attitude.&quot; They are, moreover, an occupying force, existing primarily to protect the power of rich white people (which <em>we</em> are not); to keep the powerless in submission. They are not our means of protecting ourselves; they are what we organize to protect ourselves against.<br/><br/>In a study described in the NYT, 96% of black students at one Brooklyn college reported being randomly stopped by police -- several up to 6 times. Why? Because black people in such areas are often career criminals, of course!<br/><br/>No one would hate police if they just left people alone. If they just didn't do anything until someone needed help, no one would hate police, no one would feel the need for protection from them, no one would feel that twinge of anxious fear when a squad car drives by. No one would ever ask themselves, &quot;will I be stopped by this armed stranger and forced to pay homage? Will this armed stranger keep me from my destination, and will he demand I cheerfully thank him for his provision of this service? And if I refuse, if I try to assert a right to be left alone, will I be kidnapped by force, thrown in a cage, and treated there in a way no decent person would treat a dog?&quot;<br/><br/>Police: when you pull someone over for statistical reasons -- because they show some outward indication of poverty, like being black or riding a bike -- you are not only stealing time from them. You are stealing dignity from them. You are stealing life from them. In fact, you are doing something to someone that, if someone did the same to you, would cause you to arrest them.<br/>
black people feed into their own stereo type, ?I used to be best friends with a black kid down the street untill he became ghetto trash, it still makes me sad because he was a really nice guy but now hes in jail because of his' hommies' <br><br>racial profiling is wrong but when a higher percentage of black people or minorities for that matter are always getting caught for crimes, the statistics dont lie, sue happy lawyers use these same states and say this is racial profiling..
Very well-said. Although a few cops don't do this, many do. I should know, I drove through these neighborhoods and many a time I have been stopped for &quot;driving with long hair&quot;. I am as white as they come, but I have long hair (not a mullet, rockstar-hair), and many times simply to harass me so I would leave the area....&quot;I'm making a delivery, pig, I'm paid to be in the area!&quot;<br/><br/>There are &quot;officers of the law&quot; (which I respect, they know the <strong>spirit of the law</strong>), there are &quot;cops&quot; (probies who do everything by the book), and there are &quot;pigs&quot; (use their authority to vent their high-school frustrations on the world because they need to feel powerful). A few (too many) try to be Robocop instead of being capable of seeing the situation and reacting to it appropriately.<br/><br/>MajHunter seems to be a reasonable &quot;officer of the law&quot;, so &quot;present company excluded&quot; when I say that I hate cops and pigs. Here in Washington-state, we have too many &quot;cops&quot;, and not enough &quot;officers&quot;.<br/>
'Let me explain the reason that cops pull people on bikes over for no headlight. Many career criminals have had their license suspended. As a result many ride bicycles. A burned out headlight (or more commonly no headlight) is a violation and gives the officer a reason to detain and contact the person. It is amazing how many people I have arrested that had No Bail warrants for robbery, rape, shootings etc, just off of riding a bicycle in the street with no headlight at night. It is a tool we can use to find out who someone is to see if they are one of the ones who prey on innocent people. I cant think of one time I or anyone I know has written a ticket for no headlight on a bicycle, but it is a legitimate violation of the law.'<br><br>just big brothers way of keeping an eye on everyone, even those who cant afford a car....<br><br>'Promethius -You know the bad cop if you watch &quot;COPS&quot; and see the A**hole from Passaic county with the thick Jersey accent.<br><br>Response:<br>Yep, cant stand that dude.<br><br>Promethius-cop that was watching me and coming from the opposite direction pulls a screeching spin-turn in front of another car and races up to me at speeds exceeding 90mph in a 35 to pull me over.<br><br>Response:<br>LOL Slight exaggeration there maybe? A 2007 Crown Vic takes 16.7 seconds to get from 0 to 90, so he would have had to be a long way away I would imagine. LOL.'<br><br>in my county the highway patrol has 2010 chargers and i had one pull me over for going 75 mph in a 55 and he was going the other way when he got me, it was slightly entertaining to see the blueish smoke in my mirror and see people slamming on their brake because this A hole did a completely unsafe uturn on the 2 lane undivided highway haha when he asked me about what i did(i said this knowing i was speeding)I said&quot; i dont know what i was doing wrong but i sure as hell know what you did wrong when you did that u tyurn back there&quot; his face turned very red and he calmly said as a police officer we receive exclusive training ln how to properly maintain the vehicle in extreme situations, almost as if he was bragging about it. I paid 617 dollars 1 month later because of that... <br><br>'Promethius-I also don't need nor want an automatic transmission to help my driving if I were a cop in pursuit, because unlike them I can handle a manual transmission while driving under more extreme circumstances than most if any will ever see.<br><br>Response:<br>Have you ever thought about why we use automatics? Have you heard the expression, You can outrun Ford or Chevy, but you cant outrun Motorola? Have you ever tried to do rapid lane changes, change gear, and hold a cell phone (Hand microphone) to your mouth at the same time.....oh yeah, only two hands. We have to keep in communication at all times, ESPECIALLY during a pursuit. The SGT, and above wants to hear constant updates on speed, suspect actions, traffic conditions, road conditions, pedestrian traffic, location, directing assisting units where you want spike strips, etc. Non Stop. If you pause for more than a few seconds they will break off the pursuit regardless of whether you are chasing a stolen car, or a wanted mass murderer. Liability. Also you sometimes have to return fire at intersections, etc when the suspect slams on the breaks and starts shooting. There is more to driving a patrol car in a pursuit/etc than driving fast.'<br><br>sounds like all that money we as tax payers pay goes to waist, in California the law made it mandatory for anyone driving to have a HANDS FREE DEVICE but yet police officers themselves apparently dont have to use them... <br>but personally i have no preference as to what type of transmission is used for a cop car, I wish driving skill and inelegance was a requirement for cops but it isnt. I prefer driving stick, it gives you a feeling of control of your car and its power <br><br>'Not trying to be a hard a$$ bro, but you have to realize that every decision we make at work has the potential to cost us everything we have worked out whole lives for.'<br><br>and heres the one that made me laugh, that our stupid corrupt court system even allow law suits like that to take place, many peoples lives have been ruined because of stupid crap and millions that people will never hope of ever being paid off loom above peoples heads... <br>government doesnt know the value of money, ill say that to my grave.<br><br>
Well, very good response, officer. I have alot more respect for you than I default to most police. I do see your point about the reason for a pursuit, but I will just add that the cop I stopped had been given as much reason as he should have needed. You are the example of the difference between a police officer and a cop. The Passaic county officer mentioned above is a cop. Your patience and humility make you a real police officer. Well done...
"Good cop, bad cop" he's the the good cop. at the end of the day they are all on the same side.
Thank you. Be safe riding out there. Seattle area drivers are crazy. (Was stationed at Fort Lewis and lived in Tacoma when I was in the army.)
>>>> Furthermore, how about looking at this from a Pascal's Wager perspective. (Or perhaps you think you're the only one who wants to go home to his family?) What are the repercussions of getting pulled over by a bad cop? How much damage can that cop do to you, if he were so inclined? Well, if you do get "bad cop" how is acting aggressive toward said "bad cop" going to help you? I suspect that it will make your day FAR WORSE, than if you didn't act like a prick to him.... Just a guess...
I have not advocated acting aggressive toward a cop. If you read one of my other responses:<br/><br/>&gt;&gt;&gt; Would you try to get in an argument with a criminal?<br/>...<br/>&gt;&gt;&gt; Of course not.<br/>&gt;&gt;&gt; Same goes for cops. If you don't start using your rights, you will lose them.<br/><br/>I've advocated exercising your rights as a privilege of living in this country, regardless of how <em>inconvenient</em> it is for a police officer.<br/><br/>Unfortunately, it's clear that making sure you are treated fairly under the rule of law is apparently suspicious behavior to everyone.<br/>
-Ultimately if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have absolutely nothing to worry about when contacted by the police. cops are so used to dealing with criminals they start to treat everybody like one. if a cop doesn't like the way you look, or god forbid you are holding a skateboard, maybe they can't arrest you but they can sure ruin your day. could be a "bad cop" or it could be a good cop having a bad day because his wife just left him for some guy with a skateboard, my point is that they do what they want and count on us not knowing our rights no offense to the cops reading this it is a noble job and I wouldn't want to do it .I just want to remind that its our right to question authority. thats one of the things we should be most proud of as Americans. so why do cops get so defensive when I start asking questions? not arguing just questioning. oh yeah, i skate at night because there are less cars, not because I'm trying to get away with something!
If you're homeless, if you're a teenager with no money and thus nowhere to go, if you're poor in a rich neighborhood (i.e., if you are excluded from the spaces of consumption) -- you have something to worry about. The police will come and harass you, be as patronizing and rude as possible in order to test your &quot;attitude,&quot; and do whatever it takes to drive you away from the little suburban enclosure whose &quot;quality of life&quot; they're payed to protect against your presence.<br/><br/>Of course the police will maintain that &quot;if you aren't doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear&quot; but when the definition of &quot;doing wrong&quot; includes basic physiological needs such as sitting down to rest or urinating, the strategy of &quot;do no wrong&quot; becomes impractical.<br/><br/>Also, if you make the mistake of &quot;assembling&quot; with a group of other people in order to &quot;redress&quot; some &quot;grievance,&quot; you have committed what in our society is now considered the ultimate danger -- practically equivalent to terrorism -- and you are almost <em>guaranteed</em> trouble. In that case the best advice is to wear whatever improvised body armor you can get!<br/>
Ultimately if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have absolutely nothing to worry about when contacted by the police. typical lying pig, the news fills with reports of police abuse and unjust shootings and cops raping chicks in there custody, you cant fight these pigs, realy who polices them? who holds them acountable? other police officers!
yeah, pat seach to slip a bag of drugs ta put you in JAIL!!!
<p>&quot;We want to go home to our families at the end of the shift, and we don't know you or what you are thinking, or might do.&quot;</p><p>That applies to me as well.</p><p>I want to go home to my family at the end of this encounter, and I don't know you or what you are thinking, or might do.</p><p>Or put another way.</p><p>Don't shoot me!</p>
<p>A helpful tip: If you aggravate the police, it will go badly for you. If you tick them off then they will try to make life as difficult as possible for you. Sometimes they have checkpoints where they stop all cars to check them for drugs, criminals stuff like that. If this happens: Resistance is Futile. They are the Law so show some respect.</p><p>Dakota</p>
<p>Checkpoints for drug searches are illegal. Know your rights and exercise them friend. You have the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Checkpoints deny all three. Keep your windows rolled up. I keep a laminated form to hold in the window.</p><p><strong>Assertion <br>of Rights:</strong></p><p>Officer, <br>please understand:</p><ul> <br> <br><li>I refuse to talk to you until I <br> consult with my attorney. I also refuse to consent to any search of these <br> premises or any other premises under my control, or in which I have a <br> possessory, proprietary, or privacy interest, including my car, my body, <br> or effects.

If I am free to leave, please tell me <strong>immediately</strong> so that I may go about my business.</ul>
Well said amigo, I am just saying that badmouthing an officer will not get you anywhere, if anything it makes it worse. Everything you have said Turn.Stiles.7, I am in agreement with, you just want to do things respectively.
