  • Where To Draw The Line

    With all the looonnnnngggg threads about professional courtesy, I thought that I would start another.

    Just where would you draw the line in citing or arresting a fellow officer? At what point on that scale of parking ticket to murder would you not be able to turn a blind eye?

    I don't wish to start a south vs. north or old school vs. new; I just am very curious to see where different people draw that line.

      Well Blue, you pretty much no where I stand on this issue from the other threads

      But to summarize: I will never write another cop for any traffic infraction, unless the officer is involved in or causes a accident and puts me in a position where I have to take enforcement action. Even then I have some discretion!

      Any criminal violations, (other than traffic) I will make an arrest on.

      I hope to never be put in this situation though!

      Everybody stay safe out there, and look out for each other!!

          Other than an action taken as a result of an agency investigation, any act that puts a fellow officer's job or physical safety in danger.

              I was going to agree with you on this but about 5 minutes after posting I started to think about it more. I can't say that I totally agree. If I were to catch an officer doing meth I think I'd have to make an arrest.

                I am not going to cite an officer.
                If he fails the attitude test or has done somethibg unforgivable, I will write a letter to his agency.
                This is going to be much worse than a cite.

                  I am with you. I wouldn't write another officer either and i have pulled over a small few that are A-holes. I did once contact a Union Rep on one guy who was over the top. The union rep spoke to his squad sgt, Still no paper. I feel that would be the ultimate insult and a little too personal.

                    OK, now you see that is different. But all in all, if we don't look out for each other who will?

                      That's contraband my friend, Meth has never been legal to use or to have in possession. Weed, Meth, Coke are all contraband gotta do something.

                          I wouldn't screw with cops for anything that a President of the United States has ever gotten away with. I don't think we should be held to any higher standard than the head of the executive branch of our republic. The leader sets the standards.

                            if there's a victim involved willing to sign a complaint, the officer gets hooked or cited. if there's no victim, he gets a pass. thats my rule.

                              Causing an accident or something like that. People get to caught up in that speeding ticket crap, I mean, it's speeding...who gives a ****. But if you cause someone else to wreck their car because you drove them off the road...that's a heck of a lot different. Other than traffic related...you gotta do something if there is a victim, because no one has the right to infringe on someone elses rights. If the crime was drug related, then perhaps you could insist that the officer turn himself in within' so much time or you would turn them in. Most employers, these day, have to offer help if you ask for it. If they catch you on the other hand, you are screwed.
