    Perhaps I do. I'm not a big fan of cops because of what I've seen them do to my friends and family. I've always had a problem with authority because I've seen people abuse it a lot. I also believe that authority is an illusion. However, this doesn't mean that I go looking for trouble or that I try to elevate any situation. I've always gone out of my way to diffuse a situation. I'm just saying that I'm not going to kiss their ass or automatically respect them because they have a badge. I treat them the same as I would anyone else.

    Another business opportunity for Rev Al Sharpton. Congrats, Al.

    That aside, I think it's safe to say that anyone over the age of 25 can attest to the fact that if you're not breaking the law, the cops don't jack with you. That's been my experience, because everytime a cop jacked with me, it directly related to me being up to no good. It didn't take me long to observe a pattern.



    I've never, ever seen a cop pick on someone that wasn't doing something wrong. Now, I've been questioned by a cop, because it, "looked", like I might be up to no good, but after I politely answered the officer's questions and did what he asked me to do, everything was ok. Just because you believe you're not doing anything wrong doesn't mean that you can cock-off on a cop and expect everything to be ok. It just doesn't work like that in the real world.
    They do not call it quotas anymore in some areas. It is called goals. Or whatever the word is to make it seem as if it is NOT a quota.

    I am not gonna turn this thread into some cop bash thread nor am I gonna jump all on the defend the cops bandwagon. I have known good and bad cops from all around and yep I have reason to bash cops but today is a happy day for my so not gonna be a down on cops day for me today.

    Those situations are the exception, not the rule. In most of those cases, I'm betting that the subjects weren't being, "perfectly", polite, though.

    The most impatient cops in the country, if not the world are New Orleans cops, during Mardi Gras. I've been to enough Mardi grass to know that if you play it cool with them, you won't get a knight stick in your grape. If you mouth off at them, they will leave you in the gudder, bleeding. It's just not that hard to figure out and when someone says, "that cop gave me a hard time", I just have to ask what that person did to bring that hard time on himself.
    Wow.. What a nasty message about the cops in NOLA. I been there plenty of times and happen to know a few NOLA cops. NONE of the men and women NOLA cops I know would ever leave anybody in a gudder bleeding-as you put it.

    What are you suggesting here? I mean are you really trying to suggest that if you are in NOLA and "mouth off" that you may find yourself bloody and in a ditch? Cause if that is what you are suggest8ng? You best check yourself and correct yourself right frigging now!

    That's the way you make it sound.

    Ask your NOPD pards if what I'm saying is true, during Mardi Gras. "During Mardi Gras", is a key point, in case you missed it. The reason for that strategy, is that there are several hundred thousand people on Bourbon street during Mardi Gras and there's no way they can arrest everyone that commits a minor crime. If you know someone that does, or has worked in the 1st District, ask them how they handle trouble during Mardi Gras.

    The damn fool refused to produce his ID and was belligerent because he's the racist. Simple case of stupid idiot gets to go to jail.

    I already knew it was because he's black. I just wanted to see if anyone had the goobers to answer. Guess we know, now.

    One more thing. Cops cannot screw with you? You think all cops are clean? There are dirty cops and they are not very nice people.
    Entirely not true.

    Its a stupid liberal crybaby rumor created to justify in his/her own mind the reason why they got a ticket and not a warning on a traffic stop.

    People should have never started giving out warnings.

    I refuse to give out warnings anymore, screw that, even if I stopped for headlights out a night your getting a ticket for it.

    Crybabies.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
