  • complaints.......

    many of us on his site work for departments or organizations whereby members of the public can complain about our behaviour if they feel aggrieved. What is the most pathetic or ridiculous complaint made against you:

    mine, well, it relates to an arrest made by one of my young officers, an off duty store detective subjected staff at a takeaway restaurant to abusive language whilst drunk and to the officer who arrested him , who is of mixed race,to racist abuse..... he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly and a further offence under the public order act, racially aggravated.

    at the staion where i was custody sergeant the drunken rantings and abuse continued... when sober this male was eventually charged with various offences.... prior to the court hearing he had written to the Police Complaints Authority (UK) naming me in a complaint,and suggested i had " winked, smiled and blown a kiss" at this individual............... get real.
    The complaint is still on going after 8 months!!

    The alleged complaint is ridiculous.... no way could i have taken a liking to this individual.... he is just too ugly!!!!!

    The guy that ran me down in his truck is alleging that while I was lying on the ground waiting to be transported by amublance to the trauma center after being run over by a Ford Explorer I used excessive force on him. YES, I actually received the paperwork on this one two days ago. It's such a beautiful world we live in. I guess it just goes to show what a .247 bac will do to your judgement.

      I had a typical husband/wife situation. While I was dealing with them, he tried to grab my gun out of my holster. When I arrested him, I had to fight both of them. Both were drunk.

      The wife sniveled because she thought I put the cuffs on her too tightly. Filed formal complaint for excessive force, IA, the whole nine yards.

      Unfounded of course.

        For me, one of them came last night. I was dispatched to a traffic crash at 0400 hours on a major freeway through town. When I got there, I saw that the "not at fault" couple was, shall we say, "rent a cops". Basically they were security guards with 6 shooters.

        I told them who I was and asked them to pull their vehicles onto the shoulder out of traffic. I then told them to wait inside their vehicles while I write down their info for safety reasons.

        When I was finished writing, I approached the "not at fault" couple and asked the female what was a phone number for contact. Her husband, who was not involved in the crash, spoke up and gave me a phone number.

        I then asked the female if she was the only person in the car. Her husband, again not involved, said to me, "yeah I was in my truck and she was in her truck". I told him that I was not speaking to him, instead to his wife.

        The guy then said you know what? "You sure do have a bad attitude and you are rude." I asked him to elaborate, but he couldn't. I then let them go without incident, without any type of citation.

        I then issued the "at fault" driver her citation and explained that she was at fault. She gave me no problem, then drove off.

        A few minutes later I get a call from my Sgt. to return to the station. Once there he told me the couple "not at fault" filed a rudeness complaint against me. I listened and then after it was over, I walked out and laughed becuase I couldn't believe what just happened.

          We had a case with a 15 year old juvenile & his two brothers getting arrested for a series of burglaries. The arrests were released to the media not giving the juvenile's name (Open Records Act permitted the release of the name at the time but he had not been formally charged at the time). The day after the paper ran the report on page 2, the mother called me claiming she wanted a retraction printed in the paper. I could hear the juvenile in the background telling her what to say. The woman said that her son was half-brother to the other two, not brother; his address was different than the other two because he lived with her; & he was 15, not 16 (still a juvenile). I informed her that none of those things mattered as they had no bearing on the crimes that were actually committed. I further explained that by re-contacting the newspaper I would have to give them his name since formal charges had been filed now. She told the juvenile who I could hear complaining that he didn't want his name given out. I told her if he didn't want people knowing his name then stop breaking into buildings. She told him what I said & then followed that with, "You know, he does have a point." The boy still insisted that the retraction be made with the correct information. I called the newspaper & gave them the correct information along with the boy's name. They ran the retraction on the FRONT page! Some people just don't know when to quit complaining!

            My funniest complaint came from a man I had arrested for Public Disorderly Conduct, once the subject was placed under arrest he began telling me that he had performed various sex acts on my mother, I smiled and said "Yeah she told me you were really small". He filed a formal complaint stating that I exhibited unprofessional conduct. We all kind of laughed over that one.

              I was enroute to an armed domestic, where the husband had a knife out during the fight. I ran Code and got beefed because some guy called saying that I was being too loud through his neighborhood.

              Another time I went on a very minor traffic accident with a pregnant lady involved. She was 7 months along and wanted Medical to respond and check her out, as a precaution. I called them to the scene and while waiting, I asked her to retrieve her registration and DL. A witness, who had stopped to gawk, complained on me for not being "empathetic" and "caring" enough.

              What a crock! It's amazing what people will do. On a different note, I had a suicidal man with a knife (who's lucky to be alive)lunge at me and a Sgt. We used about 2 cans of OC on him and eventually whacked the knife out of his hand with an ASP. I hit him in the eyebrow with my ASP once, missing his arm. After he was in cuffs, he apologized to us. The next day, he called to apologize again and thank us for not killing him. People are strange...

                Some Deputies went with rescue on a medical call at one of boat ramps. This particular ramp, after hours, is used for...encounters. The guy is older and having chest pains. There is a woman with him...younger, but could conceivably be his wife/girlfriend. She takes and signs for his belongings, including his wallet. The next day, he comes into (reluctantly) to the district office. He's being led by his wife, who wants to know where her husband's wallet is. Mind you, the contact was at night, and now we're on day shift, so no one is really aware of what's going on. She starts pitching a b*** at the Captain, who tries his best to translate the sparse paperwork associated with the call. He tells her "it says his property was signed over to his wife. Isn't that you?" "Yes, but I wasn't there...so who was????" Needless to say, she transfered her rage at her husband and left the Captain alone.

                  DesertRat, let ME use excessive force on the fool. I mean, here you are, hurt and and he actually expects people to believe you used excessive force on him. It's not enough that you were injured?
                  Tell him he doesn't want to meet Mitzi, DR. She'll knock his lights for causing you more trouble after cauing you pain!

                    I have a great one for you and it happened today. I refused the sale to sell liquer to this person who had been really intoxicated, as it was i had sold him 4 beers (the tall ones) at 7:30 this morning. He then had been in most of the day repeat buying but went to different cashiers. I was called to handle the situation when the cashier noticed him standing in line with more beer and a bottle of wine. So i being the manager at the moment went to politely let him know he was being cut off. And the fight was on. He kept wanting a reason for being denied and i kept telling him the same thing over and over until finally he looked like i was removing his best friend from the basket and proceeds to tell me i am just refusing him to be mean. I again politely told him i do not have a mean bone in my body and he still wasn't getting the booze. I come back and my boss informs me that it is agains't the rules to **** off any customer what so ever. The creep complained and i was told to call my boss next time it happened. Unless i was mistaken i was the boss when he gave me the keys and said run the front end. (grocery store) Little does the regular drunk of the store know but now he gets no alcohol ever. At least if i can help it.

                      Myself and my partner were called out after our shift on a "man with a gun" complaint early one morning. While escorting him to cells he demanded out names which I gladly provided him on a piece of paper.

                      The next morning when he was released from cells he wanted to make a complaint against Constable Ranger and Tonto...

                        At least he was not complaining about "Constable Pigg!" I had a friend that had a "Deputy Pigg" name tag made up. He only wore it for inspections. He got through two of them before it was noticed!

                        Fortunately, the sheriff did have a good sense of humor. The guys sergeant however, did not. . .
