  • how this trooper didn't blow up I'll never know

    This is an old video I found a while back but just seen it again and how this trooper kept calm for that long during this traffic stop I'll never understand http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lvXVeb80swc

    Because we deal with 20 stupid people like this a week who swear they know the law . He spent more time explaining the stop then I would have before I walked away and got back in my car, kudos to him.

      It's simple the best way to react when someone tries to get a reaction out of you is not to react. They pull the camera out hoping to get a rise out of you. When you remain calm and professional they lose.

        Bad cop. He should have just shown her his speedometer, and then they could have moved on.

          Steve,

          'Limiting your exposure' to the negative interaction is optimal but as with all things it relies on personality of the ofc and person AT THE TIME OF CONTACT. Sometimes the tactic is a hit and sometimes a miss. Typically, the best ways to limit the exposure for an ofc is to either stop being productive and just answer calls or to get a reliable standard routine and vary it slightly based upon the 'type' of person you're dealing with..... twits like the woman in this tape are not anywhere near the majority but are emblematic of an attitude that isn't so uncommon to deal with.

            I work in a city with a large university so I deal with many kids like this. You get use to how dumb some people can be. We wear cameras so it's nice sometimes to watch people act like idiots in court.

              To me, oftentimes an officer tries to explain things to a suspect. The officer and the suspect go back and forth at it. A lot of times the suspect gets really annoyed, and possibly arrested. I wonder if just cutting the encounter short is the way to go.

              I see this with my kids. Sometimes when I try to explain why they have to do some chore, it gets into a big argument, sometimes ending up with feelings hurt. But if I tell them to do something, and address their arguments with “I am not discussing this. Just get it done!” the feelings of being hurt are actually mitigated.

              You hit a few out of the park, heck you even got kudos and a like from PhillipCal!
              Then you got greedy. Went right back to shooting them out of your *** instead of past your brain. THEN you went full shine box here and tell veteran LEO's they're doing their jobs wrong??!!?
