Wolf you are right it is sad, but a few bad police ruined it for the whole. It is unreal the ammount of injustice performed by police its unreal, and no wonder your profession has the rep it does. You are correct that many people do not take blame for their actions. I know I didn't growing up. Please do not take any offence to my comments previously posted. There are good and there are bad, there are nice and there are ***** in every profession. Its just that since police have a position of athority it is sometimes overstepped by SOME indeviduals. Its just like being a Doctor and working with kids. Some kids turn and run at the site of a white coat. No matter if your going to give them a shot or not. The average person who has been harrassed by a police or knows someone who has is more likely to feel threatened by the site of a uniformed police officer.
Both of my seatbelt violations have been given by police who I think just wanted to F with me. Because I pass the one local cop all the time without my seatbelt AFTER the ticket and he hasn't pulled me again. This one time he saw me and turned around and then had to catch up with me because where he turned around at was way down theroad not because I was speeding. Then the other time I was BEHIND the cop and I passed him and he pulled me for no seatbelt. Now keep in mind these were both cops of the oposite ethnicity, and I was on the wrong side of town. Even though I was going to work. Now many will say if I was just wering the seatbelt I woudln't have gotten pulled. To those that are thinking that your absolutely correct! Although if that was the case then why wasn't I pulled by the other 50 police I see driving to and from work and school every day. Those were the only two times I feel it was for that reason, others was because of the way my truck looked and I was a young driver.
I do think younger drivers get hammered more than older drivers. Sometimes the way you look also effects the outcome sometimes too. Don't forget about the bad apples too that ruin it for the good ones.
