At that point, it makes sense to resort to the most commonly feared threats; the wallet and driving record. By letting bad drivers continue on their merry way because of something irrelevant to their violation, you don't improve public safety you decay it.

    Yeap.....I gave preferential treatment as a LEO when I was working the road writing summones....and will do it again if I end up going back out on the road......

    Perhaps when you become a LEO.....and have to put up with the crap we have to put up with.....you will see why we do it......

    As 1042 would say...... Have a nice day......

    Troopers, cops, and deputies are given discretion in ticket writing. Otherwise, you could use robots to do the job.

    Don't deny the guy was speeding, he didn't deny it. But my own moral code won't allow me to write a ticket to someone who won this nation's highest medal for uncommon valor.

    First off that doesn't make me a hypocrite as I admitted I was breaking the law and IF I had received a ticket I would have deserved it. I wouldn't be here blaming the Trooper for writing me the ticket.

    10-4.....just a little sensitive on the subject......as I thought I had crossed my "T's and dotted my "I's" when I searched the SC website....only to get smacked that I didn't on another website......

    Ego.....as I know I am good at what I do.....and it pains me when I screw up....

    And I posted several other links that some of the folks on here didn't hunt down....as they were trying to comdemn this LEO right off that bat....and I didn't..... I at least took the time/effort to try and look at all sides of the story.....

    To get this back on subject.....

    I just checked the State of South Carolina's DMV website.....they don't issue MOH plates...

    The VA Court link clearly states the guy that got ticketed was from South Carolina.........

    How could the Trooper/Deputy/Officer known he was a MOH Awardee if he didn't have MOH plates...???

    I am just stating the facts....that there are a ton of websites running this.....some (like this one) have at least gotten the correct facts out.....others are bashing him, LE, and whatever else they can come up with.....which is usualy par for the course on those sites.....
