    Last night I found out at the last minute that my grandson was having a football game and for some reason just grabbed my license and Visa card out of my wallet, no money and drove about 30 miles to the football field. On the way home I was tired and put the car on cruise control at 60 and was driving home. I drove on the I-10 known from the ball field and through a noted speed trap town Kenner,La. A young rookie officer approached the car and asked me for my drivers license, proof of insurance etc. I explained to him I was a LEO and asked what I was doing to begin with to be stopped. He told me speeding. I didn't argue with him but asked if he could give me a break and told him of all the officers I knew in the town. He told me it didn't make any difference if I had an ID or not I was getting a ticket because I was speeding through Kenner. I was in Kenner and nothing gets you out of a ticket. When he finished writing he walked back to the car I told him the difference between us is you writing me a ticket here and if in the next block you get into sh*t I will be backing you up. You got a lot to learn. I know I wasn't speeding. A young guy with a new toy. I want to go to court to see him since I know the DA and he will drop it. He's just got a lot to learn. If I was really doing something wrong and he wanted to write me I wouldn't have any problem with that. But I backed these same guys up so many times while off duty I can't count. I feel better now. Thanks for listening to me bi*ch.

    Are you mad because you don't believe you were speeding (how many times have YOU heard that), or because you are a cop and got a ticket?

        Professional courtesy when you didn't do anything wrong?

              I hope his boss holds him to the same standards he holds everyone else to. You know, no 35 minute lunches, no speeding in the police car, no misuse of department equipment etc...

                My Dad got stopped in a town here well known for holding you to the EXACT speed limit. My Dad is 81, a good driver but no longer drives because his eyesight is starting to fail him. This young police officer was really rude to my elderly father. I can't remember how far over he was but it wasn't much. Still, he was speeding and my Dad accepted that. But, being 79 at the time, I could tell he was upset. I said, "Dad, it's ok. We all get a speeding ticket sometime in our lives. You aren't a criminal." And this cop shoots back, "Yes, I bet you have had plenty." I said, "Actually, I have never had a speeing ticket. (I have received one since this incident). He said, "You mean you never got CAUGHT." Then he added, "Sir, come through my town and speed and I will give you a ticket every time." My poor Dad got so flustered I told him to let me drive.
                You guys would have been proud of me. As we settled in the different seats, I put my seat belt on and my Dad put his on. This rookie cop said,"Good. I was just waiting to write 2 more tickets." I said, "Sir, when you look at my father, you are seeing the grandfather of 3 police officers. He is very proud of THEM. Now, may we proceed?" He was SO cocky but he said, "Proceed."
                I was very mad but I knew anything I said negetive to him wpuld have meant a ticket. He had his ticket book out and an itchy "pen" finger. I like to think he learned a lesson of respect from a person he stopped but I doubt it. He was too full of himself.

                  Hi all,This topic and another one about how an officers apartment was robbed shows the other side of dealing with the law. If a cop will badmouth a retired 80 year old leo, what he doing to a "civilian". If the police won't come and investigate a crime for a fellow officer what is an ordinary person supposed to think?
                  It isn't an officers fault that their jurisdiction uses them as revenue generating agents but a guy doesn't have to be a jerk about it.

                      What in the hell does corruption have to do with not writing another LEO a ticket? What planet are you on?

                        Joseph, I can sympathize with your frustration from the incident, but maybe, JUST maybe, that Kenner officer has been jumped on by a boss that can be best described as having "long ears and goes 'hee haw'" (quote, Bugs Bunny) over ticket production.

                        Mitzi, obviously that officer IS what my buddy Bugs was trying to describe!
