....and to add to that, if your in a position of greater power/responsibility then you should also be held to a higher, stricter standard. Not a lesser.

2 things: 1) this cop was in the wrong. Period. You don't get to rear end someone and then abuse the badge to them out. 2) No, not all cops are like that. Most are decent people. Smearing the entire profession because of the bad apples isn't the right thing to do.

^ @3:25 in vid the guy at the desk obviously rides too, pics on wall and screen saver. But as seen here on MH just about everyday, that doesn't make someone any more friendly or forgiving to others who do the same.

Happy to see the dept take notice here, the cops actions are a sign of his behavior and inability to handle situations. I would not want this guy next to me in a life or death situation if he can't keep his cool in an accident that would otherwise been brushed of as a non consequence. He's clearly a risk to the dept who's badge he carries, glad they took notice.

I agree with all of this, but dob you think paid vacation is "punishment"?

I don't think so..

The police unions have the departments by the . Paid vacation is about the only "punishment" the department was capable of withouot the union's lawyers down their necks.

If I did what that cop did, my job would probably be on the line.

Not because I acted unprofessionally, but because I was at fault for an accident, used my influence as a police officer to intimidate the motorcyclist that a report wasn't going to happen, and not reporting it to my supervisor.

Jesse, review the Instructions to Police for Reporting Accidents, CR-100. No damage, no injury, no reportable accident. Now your department may have policies that require you to make a report for a non-reportable bump, and that's fine, but not every department does.

This was NOT a reportable accident, rookie. His actions were NOT improper influence if a report is NOT required.

You cannot file charges for a policy violation. Policies are NOT laws!

Now, what this cop did wrong was cuss. That's what he did wrong.

He didn't need to report the accident, he didn't need to be found at fault for anything because there was no injury or damage.

Now if you think that destroying someone's life and career over cussing is the way to be, then great. I doubt you will have many cops left on the force, at all, ever, because we ALL cuss occasionally, and I know to some of you that will be a great idea, but to the rest of us, no, it's probably not. Now the officer did embarrass his department by winding up on Youtube, and the cop haters will want his head on a plate.

If it were my call, if I were his boss, I'd give him 3 days off without pay and tell everyone to go away. The officer would get the message and probably bite his tongue in the future, and isn't that good for everyone?

Oh come on now get serious, he did a whole lot more than just cuss.

1.Following to close
2. Cussed out the person he hit
3. Abused his power as a police officer to scare the victim into believing they were in the wrong.
4. Left the stick up his .

One of those things is a ticket-able offense yet he did not receive any ticket. But forget the ticket..... who really gives a about a small ticket. The one that gets me is the abuse of a citizen's rights because he had a badge.



Don't get rid of cops, we do need them to be there when things go south. like this do not need to be cops, he is a killer waiting to happen.

btw...


Texas Transportation Code 545.062(a). Section 545.062(a) provides,

An operator shall, if following another vehicle, maintain an assured clear distance between the two vehicles so that, considering the speed of the vehicles, traffic, and the conditions of the highway, the operator can safely stop without colliding with the preceding vehicle or veering into another vehicle, object, or person on or near the highway.

Don't get rid of cops huh? And what donut shop do you own?

If I remember correctly, the guy in the video appeared to have 20+yrs on....If he was a "killer", Im sure he would not be out giving motorcyclists .....

(awaits for all videos/personal knowledge of "killers" still working ).....

Police are rarely there when things go south. They show up after the fact to collect the pieces.
