Undercover Cop

Yesterday night I was going home, and was merging onto the highway from a ramp, and notice a newer SS Camaro was beside me, he wouldn't let me get over so I dropped it and gunned around some cars, well he chased me and got close enough to were I saw 2 aftermarket lights on his license plate , I though that was weird and I noticed a big bar of lights on his back window inside, it was clear he was a cop..

I let him go infront of me, and heard him drop it to 3rd and was waiting for me to make a move.
After waiting he just took off all fast like if I was going to chase him, glad I'm not that dumb lol

My father in law went to jail cuz an undercover cop cut him off and almost hit his armada. So he sped up cut him off and flipped his the bird.

A second later the lights go off 3 or 4 of his buddy's show up with the heli hovering up top and off he went to the slammer lol

Those cops are sneaky little bazterds

Over summer, i ripped down a back street just to stretch the ponys legs. I slowed down and drove regular, turned down one street, then onto one of the mainstreets near my house. I see a bunch of people pulling over coming the opposite way, and they were just around a slight curve. Well, an unmarked squad car, with plain clothed cops come flying around the bend. Spots me. Whips around, and follows me. Followed me 2 blocks before my house. Then cut me off in the middle of a school intersection, and sped away.

Needless to say, i needed to change my undies. Cops are sneaky man. In OP's case, that dude was tryin' to egg you on to catch ya racing. Sneaky sneaky.

Cops can be very sneaky.

The first of 2 speeding tickets I ever got was in an unmarked cop car. I was 17 and driving home after football practice in the fall so it's dark by the time I get out. I was on a 2 lane road in the left lane and the right lane was pretty packed with cars. I see the car fly up behind me and riding my ***. So I was thinkin "Oh maybe this guy needs to get somewhere for something important," so I speed up and get into the right lane ahead of the traffic. The second I got in the right lane the lights came on. He pulls me over and says "where were you going in such a hurry?" I said "I thought you were in a hurry so I got ahead of the traffic in the right lane to let you go by." He says "that's no excuse to speed." Yeah okay he's right, he got me, but really? I wasn't even speeding before you got 10 ft. up my ***.

Cop was from a rival school district, and I had a highschool football bumper sticker on my car. So I gotta think he did that on purpose, lol. We beat that school district 2 weeks later 42 - 7

In my experience, cops are pricks plain and simple. "I've got authority eff you, you can't do anything because we are the law". No offense to any cops or people with cop friends and family. I know there are good cops out there, hell my Parents' neighbor is a cop and a really nice guy but he's one of the only ones I've ever met who was not a huge *******.

And "well the first time you have trouble you'll be calling the cops" arguement is null on me sorry. If I have a home intruder he's going to either get his face torn off by a 140lb Dane/Mastiff mix if my Shepherd doesn't get there first or be eating 12 gauge. I know we NEED cops for things but...

Blah /soapbox. Cops are too militarized IMO but the age old question of "who watches the watchers" is kind of something impossible to answer. Someone has to enforce the laws but I sure as hell have been kicking around putting dashcams in all my vehicles and a home security camera system up so I have evidence on my side. As it stands now I've recorded every encounter with a cop on my smartphone I've had since I got my first Droid in 2010. I simply don't trust them.

Cops duties are to restore order, not really enforce the laws. In some places the cops are more afraid of us than we are of them that's why they're so hostile sometimes. I'm studying to be in law enforcement and the professors I've had are constantly looking over their shoulders cause they're afraid someone's gonna jump them or something. Ever wondered why crime In Europe is lower than in the US? There's cops on every corner armed with submachine guns. Point is, yes there are ******* cops but if we spent time working with cops instead of against them then things would run smoothly. Don't bash me lol

+1 There are ******* everything but the police are the only ones noted as all being so. Cant tell me there aren't many stuck up rude doctors. I've met plenty. Most people hate police because when they get caught doing something against the law and somewhat punished it's not their own personal fault it's the police for catching them...makes sense. Take responsibility for yourself and your actions. Most only come in contact with police when one has done something wrong so they're already pissed about the situation or getting caught I should say. Concluding with yes there are some jerk officer but there are jerks in every occupation. Cant judge an entire class of people by ones actions and demeanor.

Called the police station and chewed his *** out...

its just like my argument!
They'll happily pull me over for speeding, no problem.
But where were they when my car was hit and the guy ran off?
I mean.. I respect them and what they do, but some of em just grind my gears..
Same cop has pulled me over 3 times...

Once a cop knows you, chances are they're gonna keep busting you. From what I've heard, you're no saint on the road :whistles: and let's face it, we own mustangs, affordable sports car. They're gonna see a can speeding and won't even think about pulling them over, but they see a mustang "oh **** he's speeding, we gotta catch him" I know cause it's happened to me I was going 90 in the fast lane and I get caught in a trap, I wasn't weaving through cars or anything either and some cars were going the same speed as me, but I happened to be the speeding RED mustang in the fast lane. Two CHP officers caught my speed, one at 90 and the other at 85 and in a 65 zone. Officer gave me a break and cited me for 85. Just be respectful to them and they'll do their job

If that would have happened I would have hit the brakes, because obviously a dog just ran across the street.

If you brake check them it's considered aggressive driving which they can ticket you for. But that's why we saw something in the road. The safe following distance does not exempt them.

You were going 90mph. Sounds like a solid but to me. Lucky you got off with just a citation.

As for cops... I plead the fifth. They are an unnecessarily necessary evil. Key word evil.

Didn't help much but it was something. CHP does not like to be flucked with lol. Still got to pay $200 by the end of the month.

If you get rear ended by a cop get a damn good lawyer! Cause a department will do anything to keep their name clean

I've been around for 51 years and I've seen cops go from Andy Taylor to the roid-raging, tacticalled-up paramilitary force that they've become today. The huge majority of citizens are just law-abiding taxpayers who want to get home as much as the cop. So, when we get pulled over for doing 10 over, we do not need some big bag of attitude coming at us. WE understand that he has a job to do and we respect that, but he needs to understand that we did not do anything to warrant the disrespect or threats or shouting. If the cops are afraid of a guy in a minivan who was speeding, then they need to stop pulling speeders over and go find some REAL crime to STOP! Writing reports and drawing chalk outlines after the fact is not helping make the streets safe. Put those BDUs and tac-vests to use in the dangerous neighborhoods.

And that's not why crime is lower in Europe. It has to do with demographics and how crime is reported. In Europe, they don't even bother to count crimes in "immigrant" areas anymore or they count them separately.

It's fun getting pulled over when your tag pulls up a firearms permit. They don't care in state, tn acts like its a felony stop. They forget about the ticket at least.

True, but again they became that way because media smeared image of cops and slowly people and the police started hating each other. I believe it's called progress or something like that (lol)

Good ol San berdoo. I live about an hour or so away from where he had his standoff. He killed the wrong people and now a young girl has to live without his father. The young deputy that was killed in the standoff. As well as the young couple and the first cop he killed

he went out like a freakin boss. Every cop in LA was ****ting their pants hoping they wouldn't be next! Who knew a guy as big as him could move like a ninja across the city? And he burned down that cabin he was hiding in where he died.


Boss ****

When he slides over in your lane to follow you, he has turned on his camera. You slam on the brakes and claim a dog ran out if front of you? That camera will take some wonderful footage and your going to claim the INVISIBLE DOG ran out in front of you?

Last I heard the dash cams are only turned on manually or automatically with the sirens. And also at night no one could tell. Now I'm not against cops but were taking about when a cop is riding your ***

They're gonna see a can speeding and won't even think about pulling them over, but they see a mustang "oh **** he's speeding, we gotta catch him" I know cause it's happened to me I was going 90 in the fast lane and I get caught in a trap, I wasn't weaving through cars or anything either and some cars were going the same speed as me, but I happened to be the speeding RED mustang in the fast lane. Two CHP officers caught my speed, one at 90 and the other at 85 and in a 65 zone. Officer gave me a break and cited me for 85. Just be respectful to them and they'll do their job
Not true I've had a cop pull me over about 3-5 times and always let me go.

So, when we get pulled over for doing 10 over, we do not need some big bag of attitude coming at us. WE understand that he has a job to do and we respect that, but he needs to understand that we did not do anything to warrant the disrespect or threats or shouting. If the cops are afraid of a guy in a minivan who was speeding, then they need to stop pulling speeders over and go find some REAL crime to STOP! Writing reports and drawing chalk outlines after the fact is not helping make the streets safe. Put those BDUs and tac-vests to use in the dangerous neighborhoods.

And that's not why crime is lower in Europe. It has to do with demographics and how crime is reported. In Europe, they don't even bother to count crimes in "immigrant" areas anymore or they count them separately.
Right on Dude!
You just saved me a bunch of typing...

Oh yeah?
Well, do you think that the dash cam will pick up the little mouse that ran across the road, which I mistaked for a squirrel, but nevertheless I freaked out and slammed on the brakes at an unfortunate time for the officer who was tailgating me?

Come on Mtang... you know that they'd settle.

+1 they can cite us for an unsafe following distance, shouldn't they follow the same law?

I'll take a rain check on the ride along. I have a better idea than most people what cops do in between calls. All you have to do is watch Cops to see what they do while on calls
.
I agree with Scotty, I, personally, can handle my own business, but there are plenty of people who can't. That's what law enforcement officers are for.
It's the shift from "peace officers" to the much more "militaristic" role that they have taken that is disturbing.
I think some of us have the attitude of, "I'll call you when I need you"...

On a lighter note, best cop story I ever heard was back in HS. A girl I was sort of dating at the time got pulled over. Little back story here, in NJ, you get your license when you are 17 but until you are 18 you have a curfew because of being a minor and all. Now, this girl had VERY nice... assets... and she was slim too and very pretty. Cop pulls her over about 20 minutes before she had to be home and starts to chat her up not knowing how old she is. Makes some really inappropriate comments before even taking her info and she plays along for a few minutes. When he finally does take the license/registration she says "hey, just FYI, I need to be home in 10 minutes for curfew". Needless to say she was out of there in about 30 seconds with no ticket.
