Quote from: Hoser on March 04, 2008, 07:40:05 PMWhen I have been pulled over, I INTENTIONALLY pull into a parking if possible because that removes the potential of the cop getting ironed out by rubberneckers. I've seen it twice in 30 years of EMS. Kach's comment that the person knows he's going to get arrested is typical cop BS. ---->The assumption that everyone is guilty and only out for themselves. I was doing my part to see the cop that pulled me over goes home at the end of the day.
Quote from: Smokey on March 04, 2008, 08:23:13 PMThank you all for your input...after 36 years of doing this I'm still amazed at those of you out there who know my job better than me. Now can you tell me where all the donut shops are?I think I will remember that when I tell my doctor how to perform his next surgery.

Quote from: Flying Pig on March 05, 2008, 08:43:44 AM"Police officers conduct every traffic stop extending the olive branch of peace, while at the same time, having a tactical plan to kill everyone inside the vehicle." - Gordon Graham, AttorneyKeep that in that back of your mind next time you are stopped. Because its at the front of mine.
Quote from: Captain B on March 05, 2008, 11:55:00 AMThere have been several instances in the last several years of people in north Florida driving Crown Vics, impersonating officers, and in one case sexually assaulting women on "traffic stops." In other cases, the women felt uneasy and drove to a public place. That decision probably saved their lives.After these incidents, the police began telling women in particular to do just as I did: indicate intention to pull over, find a well-lit area, and if you feel uneasy call 911 to confirm it is a legitimate stop. They came on the news and told us that any "real" cop won't have a problem with that course of action. Were they wrong?
QuoteWhat should you do when an officer signals you to pull overPull your vehicle over as far to the right of the roadway as is safely possible. If there is a safe, non-congested area, such as a parking lot, within a reasonable distance, pull off the road, stop and place your vehicle in park. Being stopped at night, particularly along a dark stretch of road, can heighten the stress for motorists and officers. Officers do not object to drivers proceeding to a nearby well-lit area. Simply acknowledge the officer by turning on your turn signal and drive at a reduced speed.
Quote from: Captain B on March 05, 2008, 11:55:00 AMI've been pulled over three times in my life. The first was in high school because I was in the "wrong" part of town with a Black boy in the car with me.
Quote from: Stonewall on March 05, 2008, 02:44:19 PMGotcha, got your "after midnight" example mixed up.Yep, that's wrong. No doubt about it. As Flying Pig said, law enforcement, like the military and the government, get their employees from society and there's no telling how some people will act, even after things like psychological testing, polygraphs, interviews and background checks.
Quote from: JohnKachenmeister on March 05, 2008, 03:31:22 PMActually, Stonewall, your mileage may vary, but I think we actually got MORE nut-cases on the police department after they started psychological testing. Psychology is not a precise science, and the tests are imperfect. But once it is "Passed" one has documentation of sanity, and gut feelings, history of poor judgement, and interview performance are swept away because of the allure of this pseudo-scientific testing.
