  • How many times do you get this lucky/good in your career?

    Last night, one of our graves officers drives behind the "stop and rob". He seems an SUV parked with a piece of paper over the rear plate. He figures it is worth stopping and finds the SUV unattended. While he is waiting for a cover car, the owner comes walking around the corner and gets taken down at gunpoint. Our officer finds cash and a gun on the SUV owner since he had just robbed the clerk.

    Now that was a damn good job.

      I love it when it comes together like that. Officer is very, very lucky though. Had he not been diligent with his safety he might have been seriously hurt by the robber. Think if he doesn't recognize the very suspicious things going on. A car parked behind the "stop and rob" late at night, with tags covered, unattended, etc. Had he not noticed those things and thought that they were suspicious, he might have walked up to the car unprepared for anything but a stranded motorist or abandoned vehicle. As it was, it sounds like he walked up knowing it could be something serious and was prepared when the owner came back to the car. Good job catching the bad guy to be sure, but better job recognizing the clues.

        While good police work provides a lot of "lucky" opportunities, there's nothing wrong with a bit of unearned good luck. (Or maybe it's Karma?)

        I sat down to lunch once (around 4:00 PM), ordered my meal and looked across the street to observe a forcible rape in progress on a public sidewalk. The suspect and victim were both HBD. He wanted to get "romantic" and she didn't, so he punched her in the face until she was unconscious. By the time I'd requested backup and ran across the street to make the arrest, he was "in the act."

        One backup unit transported the victim to the hospital, one transported the suspect to jail, and I got to finish my meal before returning to the station to complete the reports and follow-up.

            You have a good patrolman on hands there. Wanna loan him out?

                  I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                        Most people fail because they trade what they want MOST, for what they want at the MOMENT.

                        Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

                          Nice.


                          I have a story similar to Puli's.

                          A few weeks back, i sat down to eat dinner at this chinese restaurant. I was putting the second mouthful of food into my mouth when this woman suddenly slammed into the glass of the front door of the restaurant. I looked up, took about 2 seconds to determine that she wasn't playing, and that she was actually in need of help, then ran out the side door and saw a man coming around the side of the building. Two other officers were with me, one ran to the woman, the other stood with me in front of the guy. First words out of his drunk mouth before I could even ask him what the heck just happened were, "I didn't do anything".

                          Riiiight.

                          He had bloody knuckles from beating her all the way down the block until they reached the restaurant I was in.

                          Pretty cool to be in the right place at the right time!

                            Police work is a lot of being in the right place at the right time. Two guys I work with are driving down the street and the car in front of them loses its wheel. They pull over to help, guy has suspended license, vehicle is now being impounded. They do an inventory search and find a Tech 9 in the car. Talk about luck.
