    Good interaction with LEO

    I didn't want to post this with my other thread about my niece because I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle. When we found out that my niece was hurt we were told she was at a hospital in Oklahoma City, we started out that way. The hospital was about 17 miles away. We were about 3 miles away when we were told she was at the hospital in Midwest City. We turned around, needless to say I was speeding. We were about 3 miles from the hospital in Midwest City when I was clocked doing at least 60 in a 45. The officer pulled me over I handed him my CWL, lic and insurance. Ooops expired insurance card by 15 days, I just never switched it out with the current one. I told where I was going and why, he had already heard about her. He handed back my info and said, just don't speed anymore. I just wanted to thank him, he could have caused a lot of problems for me.

    Some cops remember they were human before they became cops. Sounds like you found one who remembers and still has a heart. Please contact the officer's chief and commend him on his service and humanity. Most chiefs get so many complaints they would love to hear something good about one of their officers.

    Most of the coppers I had the pleasure of working with were all great people and I tend to believe most are. Glad you didn't get one of the 2% that exist in every profession!

    I'm still praying you you and your family too!

    Actually, we remain "humans" after we become cops. Shocking, eh? Generally the same type of human being we were before we became a cop. Bullies tend to become bully cops. Crooks tend to become crook cops. And good people tend to become good cops. Nothing makes you feel better than being told you are no longer human.

    yes, contact the officer's supervisor, they as well as the individual officers do like getting something other than complaints or indicators of mistakes every once in awhile

    I'll give ya +2 Gonzo your post is dead on target.

    But I do not think Black Knight meant anything derogatory to LEO's in general and certainly not to you personally. I think he was just stating the obvious, just like you said the OP could have been pulled by a bully during this ordeal adding insult to a horrible loss.

    I do agree with contacting the Chief and I think a written letter is a better route than just a call....letter has chance of ending up in the officers file.
