  • Obstruction?

    If this doesn't get thrown out, I will eat my hat.

    It would fly here. I would personally go with disorderly conduct (city charge), but the old guy had no reason to yell at the officer like he did. He came off as hostile and aggressive, which would cause me to be unable to focus on my traffic stop like I should, instead having to look at the truck I stopped and directly behind me at the old guy's car.

      But, it was a cranky 84 year old fossil hollering to shut the "doggone" light off because he couldn't see. I don't see the charge getting any traction.

        I could see the guy getting pinched with obstructing if he actually stopped for longer than 15 seconds to give the officer a "piece of his mind", but it appears in the video that he yelled at him as he was going by. Obstructing is definitely a stretch...

          Would not fly here, especially without a warning to stop the conduct.

            **** the old guy. He can turn away from it or just shut up and drive on. Idiots like that get cops killed.
            Now go home and get your shine box!

              It seems to me that there was no need for him to do that. Other than just flat out rude, if it was that disturbing, he could wait for the officer to finish conducting his business, then approach and talk, calmly, about why he felt the officer is in the wrong (which still baffles me). This doesn't seem like obstructing though - if he had gotten out of his car and in the officer's face, then it would be a different story, but the way it stands, I couldn't see it.

                Obstruction?

                A letter to the DMV for the old man to have his driving abilities and license reevaluated might be in order. If he no longer remembers police lights are needed for a traffic stop, or is having trouble driving near them at simple parking lot speeds, he may be a danger to himself and the public.

                  Dudes too old to remember Red and Blues. Definetly they need to take his license. I don't know why he would make that comment. Obviously being old and ignorant ain't going to cut it.

                    This was just a cranky old guy, too, until he pulled out his rifle.

                    And somescreename04, the guy obviously stuck around since all the officer said was "excuse me?!?" and finished his traffic stop before citing the old guy.

                      If I can recall correctly, I thought I'd seen a news story a little while back where officers in a small town in Texas had to shoot an elderly woman who wouldn't drop a firearm when ordered to (I believe she was in the neighborhood of 80yrs). So I could see why the officer in this situation was distracted from his stop.

                          If the lights were LED the old codger could have been blinded. Those things are bright and can blind people. Obstruction is not going to fly here for that. He said his piece and moved on.

                            I was going to post the Trooper Vetter video, but this also gets the message across.

                              84yo woman was denied her license renewal. That evening, she wanted her keys and her nephew wouldn't give them to her, so she grabbed her pistol. He called the police, she refused to drop the weapon and, according to her nephew, fired a round into the ground. The was shot and killed.

                              Then the Richard Cranium mayor marched with the protestors and stated that he was going to push for the city council to fire the officer, before the investigation even got started.



                              Oh, by the way, he was cleared of any wrongdoing.
