Got Stopped By The Police Last Night....

I let him get on with his spiel and nodded at all the right points and just rode with it, not mentioning i was in the job as i don't like to use it as a way of getting out of things.
My offence? i had a bit of dog blanket sticking out of the boot and he reckoned it was a hazard and could block my tail lights.
You should have seen his face a couple of days later when he was being taken around to visit the various faces in the station and he saw me sat at the table, in uniform and with my Mali sat at my side sizing him up.
Strangely enough he's one of my bezzie oppos now.

So after over a year of court visits, of her Sargent taking home the information of the case (which apparently was fine to do so), him giving his personal home number out instead of the station and verbally threatening my dad down the phone, tampering with evidence that after 3 court visits mysteriously only just turned up - he wasn't found guilty. Biggest thing that played in to this was my dad had his cruise control set, and I was witness to this.
Got very little respect for traffic police up near Yorkshire way >.<

me and my mate were coming home after the gym and thought id pick my wife and sister up from town and then drop my mate off at home.
I was at the 'point of no return' when the lights turned red so I went through. Saw blue flashing lights and stopped in a safe side street and he proceed to inform me of what id done, to which my reply was i was at the point of no return and he started doing his vehicle checks on my car.
He asked me if my car had had any paint work done as it was coming up as 'Gray' on the database. I have orange panels and the safety shell is Gray .. so I pointed to the Gray bit.
After he had finished I said 'I'm going to get a little cheeky now, what would you rather me have done, stamp on the brakes and you rear end me or do what I did?' he just said 'ill let you off with a warning and be on your way'

I've been in the job long enough now that I use my discretion and common sense and can see grey areas whereas newbies see the black and white only.
Unfortunately many of my colleagues down here never mellow out and have a bit of an elitist attitude.
I try to treat people how I'd expect to be treated unless they fail the attitude test.

And I'm under that exact pressure right now!! Trying to get all my bits signed off to say I can do it!! Trying to find what you need and can do correctly is very hard sometimes!

It sinks in eventually.

Anyway there was this one local Bobby that seemed to take great delight in pulling me over every time he saw me, he knew the car was legit, and that i was old enough to drive, (though some said i didn't look it at the time) and had the required licence, but not a time went by that when he saw me he didn't pull me over.
It came to a point that at one time i had collected about 10 HORT5's within a week for me to produce the required documentation at the local nick, and the desk Sergeant, would open his little window and say "Oh no not you again"
eventually I asked the sergeant to have a quiet word with his constable as it was getting beyond a joke, or i would take it higher up and complain in writing about his constable.
The upchuck of all this is that a few nights later i saw him, and was fully expecting to get a pull, but he just scowled at me and kept on walking

They either learn their lesson or get 'moved on'.

The car they were in was a left hooker with german plates, so Mr Plod walks up to the drivers window, and in his best pidgeon german asks, "Sprechen sie english", to which my son and the front passenger said, "Yes mate, ta very much" in a broad yorkshire accent.
Obviously expecting there to be a language barier the officer was taken aback some what and looked down to where my son had his wallet on his knee opened to show his military ID.
"Oh sugar" said the copper, "Your squaddies, Bog off and keep your speed down".
Somehow i don't think he wanted the paperwork
