    And again.. Mercop never said he used those sole pieces of observation to do a stop or "spot check". He said it keyed him in to things that "draw attention to" (title of the thread) him, maybe, paying a bit more attention to this situation to see if something is developing. You can also be on the look out for "things that should not be" to spot danger situations before they actually become dangerous.

    You wouldn't change your engine because of an oil spot on the ground, but it does give you the suggestion that something is wrong with your car and you investigate further. Investigate does not necessarily mean doing a traffic stop.

    To each his own but it's certainly there. It isn't a counter to say "that's BS because I do that". That's a complete disregard for something that is probably true 95% of the time but just not in your case. It isn't a counter to say "that assumption is ludicrous" People have puffed up their chest in this thread at the very mention that a police officer might be looking further into something because his life experience says there is fire at that smoke. But again... your opinion is your own and your entitled to it. Carry on.

    I've done the LEO profiling in the service (not quite the same in every aspect of course as my civilian counter part), I see what the OP is putting down and agree to parts of it and I might word my differences in a more professional manner, but then not everyone will do that on the net as I have seen, but it's still a counter either way.

    Thanks for allowing me my opiniion and to carry on.
