  • Wrecked cruiser

    We have 4 police officers in our family. My neice and her husband are both officers. Last night, Rob (my nephew)was chasing a car weaving on the road. They reached high speeds and the passenger bailed from the car while it was still moving. My nephew swerved and hit a road sign. He caught the kid and they found a gun and cocaine in the car.
    But the thing my nephew is MOST mad about is it looks like it blew the engine in his car. His corporal asked him why he let the road sign get in his way, being funny.
    But my nephew is one ticked off police officer because of his cruiser.
    I adnit I cried when I heard this. I worry about them all so much. I know they are doing what they love. But I love them and want them to be safe.

      You'e not a good cop unless you get your cruiser stuck somewhere or if you crash at some point during your career. I took out the rear suspension on my patrol car once during a pursuit when I slid the rear end (89 crown vic-damn that loose rear end ) into a curb. Typical young cop stuff. I knew who I was chasing so I should have terminated the pursuit.

      As long as nobody gets hurt and we learn from it crashes are not that big of a deal.
      If you see me running try to keep up!

        Shooter, don't fel bad. My husband is a good driver but he's an impatient driver. He can't stand it when people can't make up their minds which way they want go or turn and so on. Well, one day, we were at the Mall. In this whole huge parking lot, we were behind a truck that had to stop because a car had just dead stopped because he didn't know where he was going. So, my impatient husband goes around him and BAM, the tire hit the curb. I told him, "You drive me crazy with that. If you would just wait a few seconds, he would have gone one way or the other." Anyway, he parks and we get out of the car and I hear a "hisssssssssss" and sure enough, he had hit so hard, we got a flat tire. Not to mention this ws MY car he was driving. It's only a 96 Ford Taurus station wagon but it's MINE and it's paid for.
        So, my husband says, "Well, you coming in or not?" I said, "Oh, deeeaarrrr, you might want to walk over here for a sec." He walks over and sees the tire and it's "(#(**$*&#&^$^&$^$&^$GDSOBDSUJ{}E*$" I said, "Your impatience has just cost us a tire." Luckily, hwe were near a Sears car station and we got it fixed. We went into the mall. And he stops, takes my shoulders, looks me in the gface and says, "Laugh. Get it over with before we are halfway down the mall." And laugh I did! LOL!

          Awww, Mitzi, I'd worry too. Police is work is inevitably dangerous but what can you do but pray for them? Things can go bad in a matter of seconds but they love what they do and I'm so proud of the men and women in law enforcement.

            When I get behind someone who can't decide which way to go I think about all the times I have got lost on vacation and couldn't make much sense out of the highway/street signs. It happens on the average of once every couple of days.
            Maps aren't much help if you don't have a place to pull over and look at them.

              There is nothing I can do. Being police officers are who they are and it's in their blood. I just love them all so much, it's normal to worry. Now I have my youngest nephew being a rookie cop.
              He is so sweet and has always been like this sweet loveable puppy dog.
              I will see them all at Christmas. They are all so funny. They see us pull up and they all run for the hils, jumping fences, hiding behind trees cause they know Aunt Mitzi is there to drive them crazy. Last year, I made them all four sit in chairs facing me. I made them repeat 5 times, "I am a police officer. I will do my duty. I will be careful cause I am scared of Aunt Mitzi." It was SO funny.
              I love them all so dearly and could not bear to lose any of them.
              You see, I don't see police officers. I see those plump litle babies with the blonde curls, running and laughing, napping in my arms. I remember feeding them in their high chairs, singing them to sleep and laughing cause they called me "Aunt MiMi" because they couldn't say my name.
              They are wonderful people and tney can roll their eyes all they want..They will alway be my babies.

                I am sure that their coworkers want to see them as babies. Bring in some pictures of them as a young child. I am sure that they will appreciate that.

                To wreck a squad, it is natural to be mad. I was mad when I struck a deer with my squad a few years ago. Thank God your nephew wasn't hurt.

                  hehehehehe It's funny you should mention the baby pictures.. you see, I have been devious all my life. lol I have a picture of my three nephews dresed up as little girls for Halloween. And there's the naked baby on the rug or towel pic. But the TEENAGER pics are the best. hehehehehehe
                  The nerdy hair, the out of date clothes.hehhehehhhee.....Guess what I'm taking with me to Christmas this year? lol
                  We are all so glad Rob is ok. Of them al, he is the most intense and takes his job very seriously. But he has a wonderful sense of humor. He ran like a little kid when he almost hit my dog when he was playing horshoes. lol Then, he said, "What am I running for? You're old" He managed to get that out before the shaving cream hit him in the face. LOL! It was hysterical!
