Got pulled over by the cops...

Recommended Posts

Yup. No trickery here.

 

Well pissed (thanks Dave!) and off the train. Stumble down the stairs and wait for Cheeky to pick me up.

 

Cops drive past the train station, do a u-ey, and turn into the station car park. They do a loop and pull up next to me.

 

I'm wearing headphones and am hard as fuck. Whatchoo gunna do, Serpico?

 

 

 

I ignore them at first, but then she makes it obvious she wants me attention.

 

 

Me: "Sup?"

Her: "having a good night?"

Me: "Sure am. Back from an xmas party. You?"

Her: "Doing the rounds... What are you doing here?"

Me: "Just off the train... You?"

Her: "Just pulled that guy over for a breathalyser"

 

*She did. I was watching her do it as I came down the stations stairs*

 

Me: "Sweet. So... Whats your interest here?"

Her: "Just making sure you get home ok"

Me: "Thanks. I live literally 200m away, but up the hill. Don't feel like walking it in my current condition, and my wife is on the way"

Her: "Fair enough. I'll wait. Had a good night so far?"

Me: "Yeah, pretty good. Had a few beers, then played a few games of pool with a mate. Ready for bed before tomorrow tho..."

Her: "Is this your wife now?"

 

*cue Cheeky pulling into the car park*

 

Me: "Yup... Do us a favour and flash your lights for me. Freak her out a bit."

Cop: *Flashes lights*

Cheeky: "WTF?!"

Me: "Thanks for that. Have a Happy Xmas and New Years."

Her: "Have a good one mate"

 

 

Cheeky: "WTF was all that about?!"

Several peeps I know/have known have been or gone on to be cops. They're just people with a job to do. Some are excellent cops and shitty people, some are very cool people and not great cops, a few are just crap in all regards, and a magical few are brilliant in all regards.

 

Probably the most officious arsehole cop I've ever met was a larrikin and a bit of a stoner before he joined up.

The boys and girls in Blue are just like us.. some good some bad, but they do a job that most of us would would not want.

At the same time... a few blocks down the road, a gang of violent youth were viciously beating a poor elderly retiree in order to get his pension money... if only there was a police officer driving past...

could have sworn the thread title read: Got pulled over by the cops..., While wanking.

 

I bet you'd have been a bit disappointed then.

Most cops I've come across have been awesome.

 

When I was younger and into drugs I ended up dealing grass to a cops wife behind his back.

 

Went round to his place one day and he pulled me aside and told me he had found out.

 

"We'll this is uncomfortable" I said. "What are you gonna do". Expecting the worst of any number of possibilities.

 

He sat me down for an hour and explained all the problems he had been experiencing with his marriage. And how hard he had been trying to overcome them.

And how disappointed he was with me.

 

Worst punishment EVER. I would have much preferred a big punch in the face or be hauled down to the station to be charged. I felt the lowest of the low.

 

 

This is one of about half a dozen stories I could tell of cops being awesome.

 

In my experience the utter cunts in the Australian police force are far outweighed by decent and understanding individuals who put up with massive amounts of bullshit, and are

still willing to give you a break if they think you deserve it.

 

Edit:

 

The guy wasn't even a friend. I barely knew him.

Ballarat - my experiences: not so good blokes/gals in the police force here. Perhaps I've been unlucky.

I agree.

 

Although, per employee head, there are a high amount of cunts compared to most other professions.

 

Having said that - my story.

 

I'm not particularly proud of this, but here goes.

 

I was working at a pub and had been for about six months. I lived around the corner and was the cellarman at the time. Being the guy that lived around the corner, I was given a set of keys, and had to attend to all of the out of hours shit that comes along with with a pub. Things like out of hours deliveries, alarms going off, vandalism etc, etc.

 

Alarms go off at pubs A LOT!

 

These hours were all unpaid, and were in addition to the long hours I was doing. Being the "dude around the corner" I was also the go to guy for when people were late, or didn't turn up to their shift.

 

People don't turn up to their shifts at pubs A LOT.

 

Anyway, the pub is sold and is handed over to new management. New management turns up to and has a meeting with us - nothing is going to change.

 

I turn up to my shift and there's a whole lot of people I don't recognise, most of them very blonde, very young and very female. As I walk through the door, I get pulled aside by the new manager and told that I have been terminated. Apparently I "haven't performed well". I said, "How the fuck would you know, I haven't worked here under this new management. Let's cut the bullshit - I'm not blonde or big titted enough".

 

"Whatever you want to believe".

 

To add insult to injury, they didn't pay me my previous week's wage, stating that I had no "proof" that I'd done the hours.

 

So I think to myself "righty-oh".

 

I plant myself at the bar, under the camera, and proceed to have a few drinks. I tell the patrons at the bar what has happened. The whole time the new manager wanker is watching over me like a hawk. Eventually he cuts me off for being "intoxicated" and has security escort me out. But the dickhead forgets to get the keys off me.

 

Later that night I return and, armed with the back keys to the cellar, proceed to engage in the Great Paddington Beer Heist. What I don't know is, being the first night under new management, the manager is still upstairs with a few mates and catches me in the act, with a case under each arm. He tells me to stop. I refuse. He grabs me by the shoulder and I put the cases on the gorund and tell him if he touches me again, I'll tear his head off. I know where the cameras are and there's none where we are, and no witnesses. He backs right off and I pick the cases up and start walking home. He follows me at a safe distance and I realise the fault in my masterplan - they know where I live and he's following me home in any case. I think to myself - "fuck it!".

 

So he follows me to my door, the whole time telling me he's going to call the cops and have me charged. I tell him to go fuck himself, I'll drink the evidence.

 

And so, 10 minutes later, the police duly arrive at my door. They ask me what has happened. I figure it's best to tell them the truth. They listen and ask me why I think it's acceptable to help myself two cases of beer that don't belong to me. I tell them the situation, how I was summarliy sacked, how they have refused to pay me for work performed.

 

I said "as far as I'm concerned, what they have done to me mightn't be illegal, but it's no less immoral".

 

Both police nod their head.

 

"Do you have the keys to the premises on Oxford Street sir".

 

I'm shitting myself. "Yes I do".

 

"Can we have them to return them to the owner?"

 

"Yes you can". I hand them the keys with a gulp.

 

"Mr. Frobozz (name changed to protect the guilty), please stay here, we may wish to question you further.

 

They come back about twenty minutes later. "There's no footage of you entering or leaving the premises. Now, are you sure, given that there's no evidence, that it's your word against his, that we have told the manager that we're not interested in obtaining a warrant to search your premises, that you took two cases of beer?" and does a big comedy wink.

 

"No. I'm an honest man with no criminal record. I would never steal anything".

 

"Have a good night sir!".

 

Case closed!

A cop pulled me over a couple of weeks ago to tell me he liked my car, and to ask what suspension I had because his brother just bought the same model and he knew mine was on coilovers.

Well keeping with the vibe of the things.....

 

I remember one time as a young 'un, we'd picked up a couple of chicks at the club ( a rare event) and decided to go into town for some food. So being young and stupid we hit the road and did a solid 80kph all the way in. So we get down the street and this cop pulls us over:

 

Cop: "Hey we've been following you for the last 5 km, any reason you were going 80 in a 60 zone?"

Me: "Ummm, not really, just picked up a couple of chicks and was showing off a bit."

Cop: "Have you been drinking?"

Me: "Nope"

Cop: "Ok, don't do it again"

 

No ticket.

 

True story.

Dated a chick, her father and brother where in the police. The Father was high up in the ranks.

Was a great family, very nice.

Fun looking at the fridge though, had a weekly graph of who was doing radar and where, when. :-)

+1 to police being regular people who are just doing their job. Most of them don't sign up just for some stupid power trip, and those that do are often weeded out during the recruit course anyway.

 

I meet a lot of police officers through my work in the emergency services, and so far they've all been pretty good. A couple have been...touchy...if you push them the wrong way, but the secret here is just don't piss them off.

 

My brother-in-law was a police officer in Canberra for a long time, and the best piece of advice he gave me for dealing with them was to never, never, ever give them a reason to get pissed off at you. Once that happens they can make your day (and life) very miserable.

 

Juggs - sounds like you had a good encounter. At least they were making sure you were okay.

Right, so no-one is on a power trip but don't piss them off, because then they'll go on a power trip.

 

Solid advise.

Not necessarily true. Piss someone off...anyone at all...and they'll be less likely to want to help you or be favourably disposed to your situation. No power trip involved there. It could be the difference between, "Don't do that again. Have a nice night and stay out of trouble." and, "Let's take a trip to the lockup, shall we?"

s/ise/ice ;P

 

There's a well-known psychological phenomenon were authority figures (esp. uniformed ones) become more officious and likely to abuse their authority with time. See Stanford Prison Experiment.

 

That does not mean that all authority figures are corrupt - far from it. It does mean that it's something for which they need to be eternally vigilant; and that the fresh new beat cop you come across is a lot less likely to be bent than the 40-year career detective.
