SECRETS COPS KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T

Police Officer Writing Ticket

Don’t you have something better to do?  Not now, this is about as good as it gets.

IF YOU PICK UP A COPY OF ANY NEWSPAPER OR CATCH A TV CLIP ABOUT SOMETHING COPS HAVE DONE IT REALLY DOESN’T SOUND OR READ LIKE WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.

SOMETIMES IT GOOD TO INJECT A LITTLE “COP’ HUMOR…

  1.  MOST COPS DON’T LIKE WRITING TICKETS.  THEY KNOW IT’S A NECESSARY PART OF THE JOB.  UNLESS YOUR WRITING A TICKET TO THE GOOF WHO SAYS”I PAY YOUR SALARY”…THEN WRITING A TICKET ISN’T SO BAD.
  2. THE VAST MAJORITY OF COPS NEVER FIRE THEIR GUNS EXCEPT ON THE RANGE.  THEY CAN, HOWEVER, TELL YOU ABOUT THE NUMEROUS TIMES THEY COULD HAVE BECAUSE THE PERSON POSED A DEADLY THREAT.  THIS MEANS THAT COPS USE “DE CONFLICT ION” TECHNIQUES OR LESS LETHAL TO DEFUSE A POTENTIALLY DEADLY SITUATION.
  3. MOST COPS WONDER IF THEY HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO DO UNTIL THE PERSON ASKS IN A WHINY ASS VOICE, “DON’T YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO DO?”  COPS KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE IS “NO, IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS.”
  4. MOST COPS KNOW THAT THE PERSON THEY JUST STOPPED HAD MORE THAN A “COUPLE BEERS.”  IN FACT THAT COP CAN USUALLY ESTIMATE THE NUMBER OF BEERS THEY REALLY HAD.
  5. MOST COPS LIKE DONUTS, SO DOES EVERYBODY.  THEY ARE MADE TO TASTE GOOD, REALLY GOOD SO PEOPLE WANT TO THEM…PLEASE PASS ME ANOTHER DONUT.

SPECIAL TIP OF THE “COP’S PERSPECTIVE HAT TO DOUG WYLLIE, POLICE ONE, FOR INFORMATION CONTAINED HERE.  WE’LL TALK ABOUT SOME OTHER”SECRETS” SOON.

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST.
