Why am I not surprised.Wonder what Bubba Ray's opinion will be about this.
there is obviously more to this then anyone is letting on.
Im with that guy^
This probaly needs to be in the lounge.
with that said here are my thoughts:
I beleive that Law enforcement has a tough, thankless job. But they should be required to follow the laws they enforce.
I have 2 pretty close freinds that are in Law enforcement. One is a State Police officer and the Other is a NMDOT officer ( they have same academy but the DOT's have to take the Commerical Vehicle course)
Both guys are awesome guys but it really bugs me to ride in there personel vehicles with them they will run 15-20 mph over the posted limit with no worries of being stopped .......because even if they were pulled over they wouldn't get a ticket. To me that just seems wrong
Recheck as to where you are
what the ????? I'm losing it I thought this was in the garage
"Close the blast doors...we don't want those jedi in here. where are those droidakas?
"Seems" wrong?! More than wrong.I sometimes wonder who these cops think they are.I was sitting at a light once,behind a marked car with a cop and his family in it.They were just leaving church services at about 11:00 in the morning.The light dragged on for a bit,like it had missed it's cycle,y'know.So I see the cop look both ways and then drive right on through it.Pretty much pissed me off.I sure couldn't get away with that kind of crap.
I just don't want to start a big deal about it I have alot of respect for most of the Law Enforcement I've encountered
I read a more detailed article about the whole thing last week and I had the same reaction as fumes.....................
I'm guessing it will be dropped I can't see how it could be considered "stalking"
You may of had that reaction but what info did the article provide? Was it the officer or family in the wrong?
You can't stalk somone by video taping a public road, sounds like the cop was trying to get out from under looking like an ass and in the proccess completed his assedness...Cops are people too and do dumb stuff like the rest of us...
Unless the homeowner was specificly targeting this cop and was going after him not just with the video tape...
I will agree that no matter what, the a$$hat shouldnt have been going 17 over. Hes a cop and supposed to set an example for the rest off us...
I agree with 'fumes totally, and even if they were targeting him specifically, it's a public fuggin street not to mention right in front of their own house.
Just sounds like a tool playing CYA.
I love it. So the cop would have to sit in front of a judge and jury in a court where he is supposed to be held in high reguard watching the video of him speeding down the street and claim it was stalking?
I think a simple "I'm sorry" would suffice.
I put up a couple of cameras and recorded the drug dealings going on in a house up the street from my house. Cops did not call it "Stalking". They DID call it evedence and enjoyed running through the video and getting all the liscense plates I had recorded
Oh, and former homeowner called it unfair, but he's complaining from the state pen while doing 5 years for selling drugs.
Hope I like the new neighbors
Here's my whole take on this....................................
Yes, we speed. Sometimes for good cause, sometimes for not. Heck, I regularly run 5-10 over out on the highway and I may fudge that number early in the morning. When I'm actively patrolling, then it's a different story, I'm usually at or below.
On the flipside, here we have a neighbor that apparently has a problem and has gone to lengths to rectify it. They've caught a cop speeding. No big deal. If they are bent about it, file a complaint with the department. They should follow up on the complaint.
If the officer's administration can't handle the complaint, then there's a problem there. If the concerned citizen feels that they did not receive the right answer from the administration, then there's other avenues to travel. If they sent numerous e-mails like has been claimed, then they have a problem.
The whole story has not been made public, but this type of crap goes on all the time, it's just the people, locations and specifics that change.
Right ,I'll agree with the but until someone posts a more informative reply(Bubba), I'm stickin with WTF!!!! Yeah it sounds like all the info isnt out yet... post up...Wait I see this is a different article dont blast me yet give me minute???
