Funny though isnt Ryan, police officers dont set speed limits, they
dont decide where ceratin speeds are to be applied or change, and
they ceratinly dont get the revenue, or have control of any of the
other things that are usually pointed out. Perhaps you should take
those matters up with your local or state politicians who make the
laws, and then complain to the Cheif of Poilce if the offciers arent
enforcing speed limits, when the public complains about speeding
cars in different areas. That in turn causes officers to have to go
out and enforce radar which is about the last thing (speaking as an
officer) that they want to waste time doing. Of course those who
get pulled over are always quick to use this or other forums to vent
their frustration. Nice to see some positive comments for a change
however. Then again I could give you a long list of officers killed
as the result of simple traffic stops or for other senseless reasons
simply by doing thier job which is to protect citizens. Doubtful I
would see a "OK Let's hear those good cop stories" thread though.
Not as entertaining. Usually why the countless good deeds done by
the thousands of men and women in law enforement across the country
are largley unsung. However when one of a very small minority might
make a mistake or make a bad decision (and they are human too), that
never fails to make the front page or 6 o clock news. The stories
of saving lives, or doing routine good deeds (just as on here and
other forums) either fall to the back page or dont make it to print
at all. Theres my cop story since you asked for some :-)
