    Any Dope fans here? I think I've asked this before, their new CD comes out this month and I have no idea when.

    I met three last night. Unfortunately being fans of dope, they took a ride "downtown." :D

    Bubba,

    do you have any music you play while peeps are in the back of your car. Something like Jailhouse Rock or Prison Blues.

    Actually no. I have XM in the patrol car, no CD, no cassette. If I had one of those, I would have a special selection including some hits from groups like Inner Circle, NWA, The Doors (my brother actually has like a 20 year old cassette and he plays "The End" for all of his customers), Judas Priest and that one song, "I Fought the Law."

    In reality though, I would actually not play any of that for most of the people I arrest. It usually takes a lot to get me bent out of shape about something and I keep a level of professionalism and courtesy to most of the people I arrest and a lot of them see that and I usually don't get any grief out of anyone. I work in an area that is not like South Central and most of the people I hook are not some street thug in need of a personal relationship with my car hood.

    Here's two examples. Friday night I got a DUI. Caught a guy that mistook a county road as Daytona and his Jaguar as a Cup car. Finally got him stopped a block from his house. With my department, officer discretion is something that at our level, most other cops would probably freak. I was 30 miles away from my jail and in the State of OK, we have a 2 hour limit from the time of arrest to test them and if we get a stop like this, we're gonna be pushing the envelope on that limit. He was totally honest with me and I was considering just hauling him home and giving him to his wife; but there was a couple of things that made me decide I better haul him in. Now don't get me wrong, I hate DUI drivers with a passion and I live to arrest them and I currently lead my department in DUI arrests for this year and probably will close out the year on top; but my outlook on this job is that we're gonna run across scrots that deserve some time in jail and I'll hook their ass in heartbeat; but sometimes just putting the fear of God into people works better than the jail experience. I attempted to call this guy's wife numerous times so she could come get the car, but I finally had to get a tow truck out there, but the wife was finally contacted and she came and got the car. Besides, from what I got from this guy and some of my colleagues, jail might have been a safe place for him last night; apparently his wife is sort of mean. :D

    Another example. Last summer, a local PD guy got into a pursuit and ended up wiping out into a pasture at 110 mph while chasing the truck. Apparently he doesn't play in the dirt too much. The guy I hauled to jail was slapdown drunk and was being an ass. He ended up passing out on the way to jail and I woke him up with some of Mexico's finest music. :D

    Well after that went down, I talked to a few folks and come to find out this guy has a great reputation as a welder, he's just gone down the path filled with alcohol and meth. A few weeks ago, I had to go pick him up in another state and we really wasn't talking, apparently he was sober enough to remember my Mexican music stunt. I was sitting quietly up front driving back to my jail, flipping the XM and stopped on the NASCAR channel. We ended up having a little conversation.

    You know, maybe someday I'll be by that first guy's house getting my ass kicked by some scrot and he'll see it and remember that even though I arrested him, I did every thing to keep his precious Jag from being impounded and instead of letting him squirm in the back seat get torqued by the cuffs, I released them far enough so he could have some comfort for the long ride and come save my ass; or I could have been an ass and he'll help the bad guy out.

    Don't know what will happen down the road, but not everyone I arrest is a ****head and I don't treat everyone I arrest as a ****head. Just the ones that are ****heads get treating like they are. :D

    Well I've never taken you for anything but professional.

    It was just the image in my head of Belushi and Akroyd at the end of Blues Brothers. I could just see you hauling some idiot to lock-up with corresponding music, gave me a chuckle.

    If I had the ability, I would "entertain" the ones that deserve it.
