Today a State Trooper with nothing to do was on one of the back country roads (which is very rare) and gave a ticket to an Amishman for running a stop sign with his team & wagon. Poor fellow got hit for $116 because he also didn't have a SMV on his hay wagon either. lol

Some are that way.You kind of wonder why they get that way. When I was younger most police acted nice,Friendly .Only if you did something bad did they get businesslike. But this was after WW-2 when a person never knew just who he was messing with.You could be picking on a US Marine who went two to three years in the Pacific ..

we had a cop here that used to drag a quarter mile strip on the highway with us, it worked out real well he would radio the office to see if the highway patrol was in the area if they weren,t we would head out to the quarter mile strip of straight stretch, he had a 68 chevelle 396 ragtop, went pretty well.nice guy wasn,t much older than us, had lots of fun course back then there was never much traffic there.

There was a state cop in Lake Charles LA. in the sixties.He was a motorcycle cop .Had a hog .He would ride with us on motorcycles on his official Harley.Out on country roads he would stand up on the seat. These new cops go to schools to learn how to be --------------es. When we are ever attacked.(Like the 9-11 thing.) They need the ordinary citizen to make their jobs easier.It would be a good idea to send them to a charm school.
