I wish I could make a post telling people the best way to treat me at my job. If I gave a similar essay to my clients, I'd never get any work!

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
Regarding the speed limit, perhaps illegal is the wrong word. The sign just appeared one day, without the required traffic study as far as anyone can tell me. It's a sleepy back road near the bottom of a hill in a town of about 1500 people.
Responding to post #28:
Second, when you do stop me for that heinous infraction, don't ask me if I know how fast I was going, I'm not going to incriminate myself.
Local cop (agency known for using traffic tickets as revenue source) chastised me for bad attitude because I declined to answer such questions. I replied that I did not understand the bad attitude accusation since I had not use any foul, rude, or abusive language. Had I answered I would have gotten a ticket. I was in a group of cars which made distinguishing my radar signature from theirs difficult. We the Peons are not required to support LE by contributing to our own problems with the law.

well, i asked where i live in Indiana, and guess what i was told? guess? i was told that there are no borders with officers on arrests, search and seizures, etc. its not like the dukes of Hazard where the county cop has to stop a pursuit at the county line. jurisdiction applies to crime scenes, etc. and is more often used for an officers duty and NOT a restriction.
if we can make a citizens arrest, then i am SURE an officer sworn to duty has no lines. 10 years ago i asked what ever happened to serve and protect, and was told that they protect themselves first.THANKFULLY around here for sure, there is a psych test done before they become officers
Whenever I need a cop I call the two I know who are detectives or I call the state police I dont like local cops in my area.

as far as that professor video, i agree with almost everything; except in my case in the past, i was innocent, and found innocent, but i still had to get arrested, had to spend 4th of july weekend in a slop-house county jail in michigan waiting to see a judge.
but at the scene where i was guilty of speeding (5 mph over), i asked the officer from a state that i didnt live in, do i have to let them search my vehicle? i asked 3 times, and he evaded answer three time. he had to use that tape recording in my case, and by default it was finally over. talking helped me.
when they found out i had a legal firearm locked up in the tool box of my truck bed, i was cuffed, put into one of their cars, and i watched in horror as they had my innocent wife laying on the ground with a boot and a pistol barrel on her head in the muddy road shoulder.
they left her in the middle of NO WHERE, and would let her take her purse, id, money, credit cards, nothing. she had to walk 5-6 miles to the nearest village in the rain with no i.d. and beg a restaurant for a free phone call.
i have some officer associates, but im inclined to remember the ones that stand out to me the most
Pretty sure that would have been someone's job if you had talked to the right people.
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
I think it's pretty simple. If you live your life like a Jerry Springer guest and drive like a nut, you're probably going to have a lo of interaction with LEO's.
If you live a more quite lifestyle, your interactions should be limited.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
