  • Supposed FL D.O.T. candidate

    Does anyone think the D.O.T. hiring personnel would want to know about a potential hire who was hideously rude at a traffic stop that was initiated by himself?

    Here's the scenario: Approximately 1:00 a.m. One officer cruising along paying attention to oncoming traffic (of which is very little) and not the vehicle driving appropriately just ahead of said officer.

    Another officer comes up alongside first officer (4 lane hwy with a center turn lane) and then pulls ahead just behind the appropriately driven vehicle. Appropriately driven vehicle brakes suddenly and jerks vehicle to the right onto the shoulder of the road. Second officer pulls in behind the vehicle then displays lights (possible vehicle problems??). Officer approaches driver and driver's response to sudden pull off is "I don't like the police behind me."

    First officer, turns around and pulls in behind stop to offer assistance, if necessary (a quiet stand-by) and no approach of vehicle with first officer.

    While discussing whether or not a violation occurred and awaiting driver information, driver honks horn. Bad attitude was already noted by the first officer.

    Upon second approach of vehicle, driver becomes beligerant with officer to include cuss words. Driver states he's former Army m.p.(??) and is about to be hired on with the Florida D.O.T. and that the encounter was wrong. Driver demands both officers' names and badge numbers and stomps on it when driving away prior to officer fully stepping away from vehicle.

    If he can't handle that, HOW the H**L is he going to handle the bad dudes who truly do things to get to him or "harrass" him.

          Its like when you stop another cop, and rather than just be polite and say "hey man, im on the job", they want to play the snob card thinking its their right because they know they probably won't get a ticket. you know, those ones who won't even get off their cell phones or roll down their windows, but just slap a badge against the window and ignore you, then turn around and give you attitude for not just waving them on right away.

          Yeah, this guy sounds like he was either having a bad night or has mental issues. Taking into account the timing of the next academy and what not, I would assume he has not yet gone to see Dr. Cook, so maybe something will trigger a flag there, maybe not.
          Sheriff: We just take turns being the sheriff. It's real easy. You just hang out here, eat some pie, and get drunk.
          Peter Griffin: Wait. Hold on a second. "Pie," "drunk," "the?" You got yourself a sheriff!

            The cops you mentioned above should be ashamed of themselves. That is no way to act in my opinion. As you said a simple "hey man, im on the job" would suffice.
