So the judge threw it out? I guess I'm hearing that you won, but are not satisfied? Did they not fix the damage to your vehicle?

Just curious, not many people follow up with stuff like this. Most of the time, people about things with no follow through.

In our City, I know that the City pays for a lot of stuff for complaints and dismiss a LOT of tickets too.

Cops in our City still do that, so does the FD. Now, in Houston? Not gonna happen.

I think if you (or someone) gets written up for a dirty lp or window tint (which if your window tint is illegal... no big shocker there to get a ticket) it may be to justify pulling you over for something they suspected may be a worse offense. Some of my PD friends have caught some very serious offenses through routine stops with probably cause or because they saw an infraction that justified the stop and yielded a bigger catch (offense-wise).

If you guys think that Cities or Counties are getting rich off tickets, you may want to get an open records account of things before you assume things like that.

let me tell you about brazoria county S.O. My father was going through a messy breakup. my wife and I got caught in the middle of it all. Starting incident...s.o. gets called for domestic disturbance at dads girlfriends place, during incident father has a heart attack. EMS is called for father and during the wait cop is about the situation and father is restless. Dad tries to sit up and officer kicks him in the face to get him to lay down. Father goes to hospital where hospital complains to s.o. about fathers face. father gets out and comes home and files complaint against officers. A few days later he ex-girlfriend comes into my house uninvited and takes wifes(now ex-wife)dog. Ex wife follows out to car trying to get dog back and in the process gets some scrtaches on the arm and we fail to get dog back so s.o. was called about theft of animal. s.o. arrives and writes down report and we all go over to 's house. she starts spewing b.s. to s.o. deputy and they come and take a report against my ex-wife for the scratches. They say it is a standard deal to document the situation and that we would have to go to civil court for the dog...fine. A week later at 4am in the morning the deputy that took the report against my ex and the deputy that dad files the complaint on came and took my wife away to jail for class a assault. hows that for you. 6 months later the charges were reduced to class c assault, 6 monthes after that it went to court and got toosed out of the system. The system for busting crooked cops is b.s. I should know...my mom retired out of I.A. for the gov't a few months ago...she was always working on crooked cop cases.

Today while on duty I went to eat at Chilis w/ my partner and as I sat down realized that the waitress was a lady I arrested 1 week ago... instead of getting all worked up and thinking that my food would have been spit on, I sat down with confidence in knowing that I treate her very well despite her having been arrested... I sad down and the fist thing she told me what " thank you for treating me so nice that day and making it as pleasant as it cold have been" I know this type of thanks happens to me atleast 2 times a week... I am sorry for all of the bad experiences you all have faced but remember there are MANY great cops out there... Remember cops always meet people under Bad situations... So that usually sticks in peoples mind but I promise the Good outweigh the BAD

I agree there are many many good people out there doing their job....just like the sportbike community there are a few bad apples that give the whole bunch a bad rep.

If me being a cop or cops as a general would only go by the negative stories we have about sportbike riders, then I would dislike everyone on this forum... AND I DONT... in fact many are my best friends... its a case by case basis...

Well, normally cops don't "find you guity" of anything, a jury does.

It is not against the law to drink and drive, only to drive while over the lmit as I am sure you are aware.

The fact is that cops can be pricks, period. Not all are, but some undoubtedly are, I have hung out with many of them and as long as you are in good with them you are golden, but if you aren't you are toast. I have a really good friend who is an HPD officer who rides and he and I are pretty tight. So I know that they aren't all , but don't fool yourself, some are just that.

And many of them break the very laws we are discussing.....

I joined the force for the bad- pay... it had nothing to do with (being naive) thinking I could make a real difference for honest people.

And I work so many extra jobs and overtime 'cause I have nothing better to do (and its a chance to write more tickets).

(Yes, obviously the system is based on money; which I happen NOT to agree with because not everyone is on the same "playing field". But to think that I somehow profit from tickets and arrests is absurd. Look at the city's or county's revenue and you'll see where the bulk of the money comes from, and where most of that money is spent. Or go check my bank account...)

Seriously, what is MY PERSONAL MOTIVATION for writing tickets and making arrests???????? Law enforcement is not employee owned, we don't get quarterly bonus checks based on gross profits, etc... and whoever thinks so is a fukking moron...

i work for Houston. I get off work at 630am. The morning after thanksgiving at 620am a calls because her honda element stalled on dairy ashford and w. belfort. So I go over there. She doesnt want to pay for a wrecker because a gas station is "just down the street". So I pushed her car from w. belfort to w. airport while she sat inside steering. The whole time she was giving me attitude because it took 10 min for police to get there, which apparently she felt was too long. I didnt change any tires, but I like to think this counts.

Why didnt I push her car with my own instead of doing it by hand like a dumbass? 1. I needed to work off all the turkey. 2. the last time someone did that, the person who needed help thanked the officer profusely, then filed a complaint against the officer for leaving this tiny scratch on her bumper.

Almost all the cops you guys run into are dicks. Almost all the citizens we run in to happen to be dicks too.

And as for getting rich off of tickets being our motivation? That would be like the kid at Wal Mart doing his best to sell stuff so that walmart will make more money.

i work hard at work to sell even though i get in return . why do you write bullshit tickets? why not help the cripple across the street? or write tickets for that actually is a hazard like the mexican with 12ft of hanging out of thier truck or the dude driving the 19 throw it way truck down the road that no where near legal, or arresting the illegals that hang out at the home depot at bellaire and the beltway or westpark and 59 or center st and shepard???? or the whores or the crackheads on the corners? you guys would rather write a ticket for windowtint or not using a blinker for some reason...

who the fudge said we dont do those things??? Infidel...tickets are only 5 percent of what we do... truth is there are dicks in all walks of life... but some want to concentrate on the cops... lets start kicking salesman for ripping us off, retail people for annoying us with " can I help you " 100 times over ( You can help me when I tell you you can ), IRS for making us pay taxes, Pilots for making our planes late at times, weathermen for getting it wrong all the time, Doctors for charging us 500.00 dollars for showing up and doing just that ( nothing else ),garbage people for not putting the lids back on the trash cans and waking us up, yardmen for leaving the leaves all over, firemen for blowing out our eardrums w/their trucks for the smallest call, Volunteer FireFighters going fast for the smallest call ( Wooo Woooos ), apartment managers for not fixing our issues within the hour, Food establishments for messing up our food all the dang time, lawyers for well... being lawyers, churches for making priest rich ect ect ect... many of you will get the gist of this... So why do we concentrate on cops so much??? Many know why... for those that don't well keep doing what yall are doing... funny thing is Infadel and other alike... you all make it seem like We do nothing but write tickets and bc of that we are BAAAADDDD... go and ask the women who are getting beat by their husbands... ask them if a ticket is all we do... or the homeowner that has called us when a person with a gun is inside their house... or ask the family memeber of a deceased... ask them how they felt when we caught the killer... ask them if a ticket is all we did...

i got problems with everyone .. but this thread is about you guys and the fact i see and a whole lot of other people see alot of you should be "policeing" that you don't . most cops do as little as possible to make i though the day . pulling people over for stupid is just "easier" than actually doing your job. i spent years working with cops and also training them . cant compare yourself to doctors they do eight years of school most cops have minimal `college and a lil time in the academy and have little or no training other than that. i concentrate on cops because 90% of them have the littleman syndrome or a sense of entitlement. how come a cop can drive 90 on the freeway when he isnt on a call? and i can't? or run stop sign just cause he feels like it. lucky i can't issue ticket or you'd prolly have a ticket everytime i sxaw one.
