Does it piss you off to see the LAW breaking the law?



Driving in traffic on the freeway and the police officer next to me is on the phone for over 10 mins. If he saw me driving while on the phone I would have been pulled over and a ticket handed to me. I have seen police officers turn there sirens on to speed thru a red light and then turn the sirens back off. I'm not saying all are bad I'm just saying WTF?? What are we allowed to so about this type of stuff?

  • It has been maybe 5 years ago, but I was in a bank and looked out the drive thru window and there was a policeman there in a police car doing banking, and beside him standing in the front seat was a child who must have been 2 or 3. Tsk

  • Yep. I've worked undercover with the police before, and you'd be amazed at some of the hypocrisy I saw.

  • I hate when I see that...something as simple as a cop not using his blinker to switch lanes or very obviously speeding for no damn reason. They'd pull anyone else over for all those offenses, but they need the money for our tickets to pay for everything. I once got pulled over for not using my blinker, but I thought it was a frikkin joke when I looked in the rearview to see only 1 headlight. When the cop asked 'do you know why I pulled you over tonight', I got to point out his headlight. Of course, I got out of that ticket.
