A FEW THINGS COPS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW

A LOT OF THINGS THE PUBLIC WANTS COPS TO BE AWARE OF HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED, SLICED AND DICED RECENTLY…OK, IT’S ONLY FAIR THAT COPS WOULD LIKE THE PUBLIC TO KNOW A FEW THINGS.  MAYBE YOU, OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN A SITUATION LIKE THESE…LET’S TAKE A LOOK:

  1.  YOU ARE RIGHT, I SHOULD BE OUT speed-limit-25DOING SOMETHING ELSE LIKE CATCHING REAL CRIMINALS.  BUT NO, I HAVE TO GIVE YOU A TICKET BECAUSE YOU CAN’T SEE THE BIG SIGN THAT HAS THE SPEED LIMIT IN BIG BOLD NUMBERS
  2. YOU CAN’T TALK YOURSELF OUT OF A TICKET..BUT YOU CAN TALK YOURSELF INTO ONE.
  3. “I DON’T WANT TO BOTHER YOU WHILE YOUR EATING, BUT…” WELL, YOU ARE BOTHERING ME, SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL CONTINUE.
  4. DO NOT USE COPS TO SCARE YOUR KIDS.  “IF YOU DON’T EAT YOUR VEGGIES I’LL HAVE THAT COP PUT YOU IN JAIL”
  5. ON A RELATED NOTE, THAT COP WOULD LOVE TO SAY TO THE KID…”HEY LITTLE BUDDY, LET’S PUT YOUR MOM/DAD IN JAIL AND WE GO TO SIX FLAGS. I DON’T PUT LITTLE KIDS IN JAIL, I PUT GROWN-UPS IN JAIL.  NOW, LET’S GO TO SIX FLAGS.”
  6. CSI AND NCIS AND ALL THOSE OTHER SHOWS ARE NOT REAL.  THEY ARE CALLED “FICTION” FOR A REASON.
  7. EVERYONE WHO ISN’T A COP KNOWS HOW TO DO THE JOB BETTER THAN THE COP HANDLING THE SITUATION.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS COPS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW…WANT MORE?  CHECK IN TOMORROW.  I’LL SEE WHAT I CAN DIG UP.

STAY SAFE!!
