This would make Tom Bishops life complete.
Good for her. I wish there was some way to do a citizens arrest on the jackwagon cops, constables, and sheriffs around here. Rage
Again, I agree with Rage. Is it a full moon?No Lights! No Siren! No Speeding!Big Ed
Good for her, bout time!She should patrol Bridgeport.
Rage? Call it in. It's not like it's hard to figure out who's car it is. Make a written complaint. If you've got a cell phone, video it. As a career cop, having watched the video, all I can say is "Good for her." For y'all who think that most of us in uniform around here aren't angry at such abuse of office, uniform, and equipment? You're very wrong. Generally, the system works, eventually. I PROMISE you that that guy won't ever be a cop again.
Yes! She should get the Hipo's that break the law here.
Around midnight a couple of years ago, on 287 near Bonds Ranch Rd., I was passed by two Fort Worth police cars doing at least 120 mph. No lights; no sirens. Their bumpers couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 feet apart. Scared the crap out of me!
12:39 PMNot a chance, he'll get some kind of officers union all up in the mix. You don't fool us w your "abuse of power" BS. Go tell it to someone else, you're preaching to the choir here...
I often wonder why I see DPS doin lightspeed to a wreck what are they gonna do fire and ems are already there treating the victims? Also why does our county security check officers haul a** to a fire scene they gonna throw their handcuffs at it to put it out?
If you play it slow mo you can see that his gun is still holstered after being cuffed. Shouldn't securing his weapon been her FIRST move after he got out?
As a Police Officer I observe similar activity. Usually when I'm in my personal vehicle. Officers can be some of the worst violators on the road. Running stop signs, no turn signals, etc. People hold you to a higher standard. Officers had better watch what they are doing because people are watching you. Now with a smart phone in the hands of everyone, the Officer just might have some explaining to do.
3:50, because most of them are on a local fire department, and get that rush, like some people do with fishing, dope, or cars.
They think they are above the LAW,... Go girl!
Anonymous, the first move is securing his hands. If they move toward the weapon, then he's in a bad sitch. However, she's been trained in a very old school technique that actually had her patting him down before she cuffed him. (We are sooo past that.)
In Texas, the speed limit does not apply to a police patrol vehicle. Therefore, if a patrol unit is doing 100 to Ihop, he is not violating the law. Transportation code545.365
1124-only if responding to an emergency.
545.365(a) The regulation of the speed of a vehicle under this subchapter does not apply to:(1) an authorized emergency vehicle responding to a call;(2) a police patrol; or(3) a physician or ambulance responding to an emergency call.Actually, the way it's worded, police units are exempt from speed at all times. They're exempt from other stuff (turn signals, etc) when lights and sirens are activated. In order to get them under reckless driving ( 545.401) you have to have something more than speed alone, like weaving or nearly causing an accident. 546.001 and 546.002 relate to all the other stuff authorized emergency vehicles do, as long as there is no danger to life or property. 546.004 specifies when police may disregard the lights in certain situations.Of course, that's not to say they aren't violating department regulations, which are always more stringent than the law.But all of this is moot anyway, because Ofc Ass of Miami PD wasn't on-duty to begin with.
822 read the law. 1055 is correct. Doesn't have to be an emergency. The emergency applies to all emergency vehicles. Police patrols have the exemption all the time.
How about common sense and your law enforcement code of ethics? Lead by example and do the right thing. It's not rocket science.
Correct that Texas cop cars on duty may exceed the speed limits, but not when on off-duty runs. Consider also the fact that the Miami PD cop failed to pull over and stop when approached by the emergency vehicle (FL Highwy Patrol) behind him. That's a clear violation in the law for which I strongly doubt there's no exemption. We as cops had best keep to and understand #2, #4, and #7 of the Peelian Principals, if we want to make this thing work. But also, don't automatically assume that a cop running fast without lights/siren is doing something that he oughtn't. Sometimes the cop is overtaking someone who will run if the patrol car is seen, creating a greater hazard.
Who cares. The only reason you become a cop, is because you fail at life...
2:41The only reason you are not a cop is because you failed at life and became a doper. On the other hand you couldn't do what a cop does because you would be to scared. Eat S**t. The police have probably taken you in a few times already and are 10-8 after dropping off your 10-96 Arse at the Nut Hut.
8:09 PMA "doper"...? Dude, you're such a TOOL! LMFAO!!!!!
