    Good police encounter last night.

    Heading home from visiting family (and ending up watching the USC game last night), my wife and I ran into a license check on hwy 34 @ I-77. I turning on the interior light, put my hands where they were easily visible and looked the officer in the eye "I have to inform you that I have a CWP and have a weapon on me."

    <Blink> "...Where is it in the vehicle?"

    "One on my right hip, and two in luggage in the back of the car."

    <Blinkblink> "Well, I figure since you tole me about it, you don't plan on hurting me, go ahead and get your ID."

    I told him that my ID was in my back right pocket, retrieved it slowly and everything went smoothly. I wish I'd thought to get the officer's name so I could call and tell his supervisor that he was very professional and courteous, but I didn't.

    Just wanted to share that I had a good encounter with a SC State Trooper, even regarding my CWP. See, there are 'good cops' out there.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    We like to think that most of them are "Good Guys", but there will always be rotten apple in the barrel. Glad you met up with one of the good ones.

    I agree, most them are "good ones", they just don't usually get the press that you just gave them. Thanks for sharing.

    They have License checks in NC too. Usually, they're looking for DUI, unlicensed, and/or (in our area) "undocumented". Glad to hear that all went well.

    This. Most are just sobriety checks.

    I would say that it was not a "Good Police Encounter" when the police pull you over for nothing but using a wide net to catch people. What I gathered is you were doing nothing wron and the government impeded your progress from point A to point B.

    Just call me an old fuddy duddy but I see no good in it at all.

    You correctly did what was proper (I assume in your state you have a duty to inform). But again, I do not see why we need such a law to exercise a right. I do not think it would be appropriate for a LEO or anyone to ask me and require during a stop who I voted for or my political affiliation. Though we are approaching that state sooner or later.

    Is it still required that the police publicize the dates and times of these blatant constitutional rights violating 'license checks'? I thought that was how they were getting around obvious rights violation? BTW. Glad your encounter was positive.

    I share your dislike of these types of setups and from that perspective, no it was not a good enounter. This not withstanding, the officer's attitude was, however, was positive and I would like to see this become the norm.

    I agree with this 100%. I've been through a few and have voiced my dislike and why they are wrong during each stop.

    What was the reason you got stopped?
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    So as I read this, the Highwaymen just stop you, for no reason and demand to see your documents? Not me, my car u turns just fine. And you want to thank his supervisors for this? Not me.

    They look for that, and a U-turn will get you pulled over and most likely administered a DUI test. So, whether you agree with the procedure or not, it becomes a matter of producing your DL and going on your way--or producing your DL, walking the straight line, touching your nose, and whatever else they can dream up for a DUI test.

    These "checkpoints" never bothered me. Call me one of the sheep if you will, but I'd rather they get the drunks off the streets before they kill someone or an innocent family. Even if it "impedes" my progress for a few minutes. Or, maybe it doesn't doesn't bother me because I've done nothing wrong....I've got nothing to hide.*shrug*

    Glad you the encounter went well, as I hope one day they all would.

    On the road NO police encounter is good!

    They work for the DA and / or community and are looking for ANY violation what-so-ever to dig into your pocket book or charge you with something.

    When you get stopped for any reason, the police are not your friend and don't have your best interest at heart.

    Thank you for stopping me for no reason officer! May I have your supervisors name so I may thank him for this socialist encounter that delayed my trip.
