    I have only had a couple interactions with the police

    One time I came home really drunk after partying all night and not telling my parents to help the cop fill out my missing person's report.

    And the other time I was waiting for a friend outside of a store. I get fed up and go inside to get a drink but realize I don't have enough money. Since the store was like 2 blocks from my house I walk home, and get money, then on the way back the cops stop me. Apparently waiting outside and not buying anything made the store owner think I was gonna rob them.

    I got into a fight in DC once, the dude was half my size (in my defense, he climbed over a fence to get in my face, and sucker punched me, i had no qualms about roughing him up after that), and the cops rolled up mid beating. I let the guy go and they just yelled at everyone to get back in their cars and move the fuck along. Thank god... a black eye was bad enough, a night in jail to go along with it would not have been good. I think they must have seen it go down because i think i'd have gotten arrested if they just rolled up and saw a 6'3" dude wailing on a 5 foot nothing guy.

    goddamn napoleon complexes.

    I got pulled over twice because my tag pulled up as a deceased owner.

    Both times I politely explain to the officer that I'm on the registration as well. They both say they're only finding one name.

    Turns out the registration cuts off after the first name on it (my dad). I had it under Samuel OR Tyler.

    The DMV wanted like 50 bucks to get my dad taken off the title (which did NOT extend the expiration date for my registration). Fuck that noise. I can sell it today if I wanted to. So I just went in and had the names reversed. Problem solved.


    In an entirely separate incident, my old Dodge Dakota was starting to fall apart a wee bit, and the connection for one head light was loose. When I'd start it up, sometimes the driver side light wouldn't come on. I was driving and suddenly got pulled over. I'm thinking "Jeeze, what now." Cop says I've got a headlight out and starts to write a fix-it ticket. I say "Step back for just a sec and save yourself the ticket," get out of the car, go to the front, pop the lamp cover with my fist. Bloop, light comes back on. Cop says "well there's your problem" and starts to chuckle. He goes back to his car to check my license and registration. Hands it back to me and says "that's some straight up MacGuyvering shit right there.

    I've never been in a holding cell or anything. I got handcuffed once and got to lay facedown in the mud for 30 minutes like that.

    I've since decided never to do anything blatantly illegal again and to avoid police at all costs

    The Long Goodbye's passage on jail is one of my favourites.

    Me too. The wry cynicism of Marlowe combined with Chandler's capacity to use language to express narrative context and simultaneously convey some notion regarding the American state as a whole is something I envy more then anything.

    I would give my left toe for a fraction of his talent.

    Oh my god I'm so sorry.

    If it makes you feel better, I lived in Kokomo my entire life before moving to West Lafayette.

    I know we've already discussed this, but I used to live in Kokomo, too, and it has gone quite a bit downhill. My parents still live there and are sort of okay with it. But where you moved to indicates that you go to that other school. Hmmmm.

    John. John, I'm going to have to ask you to

    Dad was a cop, but I went the route where instead of acting out and being a d-bag I was a nerd who never got into any trouble. It was about 80/20 amongst the cop's kids I knew of.

    My dad came from a rough neighborhood and I guess he was a hellion in his youth, but by the time I knew him he had been domesticized. We lived in a posh suburb, but I don't think the cops ever really become power tripping crazies, but I wouldn't know since I was pretty angelic when it came to obeying the law. Not due to fear of the cops but due to fear of my dad. There was no damn way I was going to hide even the most minor encounter with the police from my dad.

    But jesus, even living in this yuppie paradise, the stress of the job took a huge toll on all the police officers I knew. By the time they were in their 40's, almost all of their marriages had failed, they usually had a suite of health problems and a pretty high rate of alcoholism. Oh and one of the cops went ballistic after retirement I think and engaged in a shooting spree. My dad escaped relatively intact on the health front since he only has some blood pressure issues, arthritus in his hand (from punching a brick wall when someone dodged him in a fight), and occasional back problems.

    He is also an awesome dad and a big softie when it came to us, so I guess that colors my view of police officers in general. He was basically inconsolable for like 2 weeks when our dog got hit by a car for instance. On the other hand he was also the cop they always used to fire and discipline other cops, so I donno. Maybe he was living some sort of double life. In retrospect I should have written this maudlin shit on Father's Day, oh well.

    You know, speaking of jail and the po-lice, Arizona has passed yet another retarded law that gives that fuck Arpaio even more power to fist the people who live in his county.

    It'll allow police to arrest anybody who can't prove, on the spot, that they legally live in the US.

    Arizona fucking sucks

    If you're a permanent resident, you're legally required to carry your Green Card at all times. But if you're a citizen and you've only got your driver's license... well, shit, man. That is some bs.

    You know what I have learned over the years? There is nobody on earth more dishonest, manipulative, and vindictive example of scum then a Richmond detective. They're deceitful, they like to harass people, and they intimidate/manipulate everyone with lies.

    I know it's legal for them to do that. But it doesn't make them anything better then, to my mind, a con-man or a petty identity thief.

    i had a pretty good experience a couple of times with cops in Australia

    one time I had just bought a car, and didn't have my Provisional plates on it. Now, it wasn't like a day or anything, I'd had the car a few weeks, I'd just been procrastinating about actually going into the garage, getting the plates off the old car and putting them on the new one. I got stopped for a random breath test, and the cop pulled me up on it. I blew nothing on the breath test, so she said just go on straight home and put those on the car.

    And recently I was pulled over for speeding (thought the limit was 80km/h, was doing 85, limit was actually 70. however apparently last time I renewed my driver's license it didn't go through their system as he said I had an expired license. My surprise must have been pretty genuine and convincing as he said "right, I'll give you a week to call the department of transport and sort that issue out. At the end of the week I'll run a check and if your license is still expired you'll get a ticket, otherwise you'll be sweet."

    So that was cool too.

    I was woken up last night by the cops banging on my neighbour's apartment door. I was like "What the fuck?" and started looking out of my blinds. The cops started shining their flashlights into my room so I went to the front door to talk to them.

    They didn't really have much to say, but it was mutually agreed that my neighbour is a huge piece of shit. They call him by his first name and it reminded me of Reno 911. Cops are fine by me.

    not cop-related, but i was woken up at 4am last night by an ambulance pulling into my apartment's parking lot

    apparently in japan it's customary for one EMT to get out of the ambulance and shout 'HUP! HUP! HUP!' every 3 seconds while some pre-recorded woman blares out how they are on important business and everyone should watch out
