  • When TV Crew Ridealongs Go Bad

    Is this why they stick TV crews with the junior guy?

          Many people are known to have attitudes when on the receiving end of a ticket. Call me whatever you want, but dealing with gay black men is ..uhhh.. let's say, an experience. Take it however you want, but being in a customer service oriented business in many demographics... they are in a class of their own.

          A quick question.. actual TV shows would require a waiver, correct? What makes this an exception?

            What makes you think there wasn't one? A verbal waiver (obtained at the beginning of the stop) would probably be sufficient. We only see the end of the stop.

              Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

                You could be right.

                Do you have any actual knowledge of the process? Do you know when camera crews are required to get a waiver? Do you know if news agencies are exempt from that?

                Or is at as simple as he can be filmed because he is public and has no expectation of privacy?

                  That reporter would be walking back to the station as I would have left him there trading insults long ago...

                      I can see the camera panning up to see the CHP car drive off. Now that would be entertaining.

                        Wow..

                        The trooper acted professionally from what I saw. I can't believe that anyone would get into an argument with a violator over this. If I were the trooper, I would be really ****ed that he stayed there. He's a liability and it's a safety issue. They are there as objective observers and they should remain silent in my opinion.. That being said, the violator seemed like a real *** and I can understand why someone would get frustrated. This happens all the time on traffic stops though and he should have just ignored it like the tv crews. I don't like news crews because of stuff like this.. And if you think about it they're a huge safety issue. When SHTF I'd perfer not to have to protect someone else.
                        All posts are my personal opinion and are not necessarily reflective of the views of my department.

                          As you absolutely should! What an embarrassment for the officer, and way to prolong and escalate a situation the officer just handled peacefully and professionally. Obnoxious as the driver was, that was probably nothing compared to an average shift for the officer!

                          You would want the camera to pan from the tail lights fading into the distance, to the reporter's startled face, along with a well-timed squeal of the tires.

                          Don't forget to laugh today. The more implausible it seems, the more you need to.

                            It would have been a WHOLE lot easier for everyone, once the ticket got signed the officer should have just walked away---the camera guy would have followed him along & there would've been no one there to insult.........

                              How can you tell the man is gay?

                              Just sayin

                              He does need a bitch slap right in the face though. In his defense, no one likes getting a ticket. Few like it even more when they are on tv. No, no release needs to be signed if it's for editorial purposes, like the evening news. Entertainment like cops then yes a release needs to be signed.
