I hope none of you need a cop to come and help you. 99% of these issues are people looking to win a lawsuit or, in this case, the town going after him because of his wife's lawsuit.

BTW - if Officer 2007 is referring to the Stratford issue a year or two ago - she resisted arrest. Period.

If you follow the officer's directions and don't resist - guess what? Nothing bad happens.

Follow the law and you won't even have to deal with the police at all!!

It's so hard to deal with the public these days, they're whiners, most think they know more about the law then the Police do, un-educated, do nothing to take responsibility for themselves and have no respect for the people that are there to help them, its a real shame.

don't forget the fact that they never did anything wrong, and they will sue you if they break a fingernail assaulting you.

I back the cops - society is filled with scum bags.

Go F**K yourself you Azzhole all cops are bums the good ones are the ones that feel compassion and look to help you not make a big deal out of nothing and get you an arrest for (ex)
domestic with wife or girlfriend or DUI.
How many times do you get pulled over and a cop says license and registration as long as you look alright they say get out here then there are those that look for every excuse to nail you because it makes them feel so high and mighty to arrest someone or your girlfriend calls on you because your pissed at something she did cops show-up and play the old I'll protect you story with the woman and a week later there banging your soon to be ex woman.
This kind of garbage goes on all the time and we live in a country that the law is strong and protected go to the Middle East or South America or cross the border into Mexico and see how cops are dealt with those countries you set-up someone you better hope that the old man in that family doesn't have you killed over there they take the law into their own hands let a cop beat-up a drug dealer there and see how quick they kill the police.
Here this country cops get away with lying, cheating, beating up people and no one does nothing!!!!!
We need a good revolution to set things straight in this country.
Wow...aren't you intelligent with your swearing. You are probably upset because you break the law and get caught.

BTW - domestic violence and DUI are AGAINST THE LAW - Duh!!!

Also, in those other countries, the cops could kill you and get away with it. You are really clueless. All you have done is proven that you are a law breaking idiot.

If you think it is so great in Mexico, why don't you go live there. If you think there is corruption here, wait until you see how those countries operate.

I guess an Officer arresting a person for DUI or a Domestic fight is abusing his power and should show compassion for the offender.

You are the type of person who thinks he can run a red light and should not be stopped... or better yet steal something from a store and when arrested you say, "Don't you fight real crime"

It seems to me that you have a little too much experience being arrested. If you don't fight with a girlfriend or wife, and you don't drink and drive, then you don't have to worry about a DUI. Of course you're not going to like the police if you are constantly getting arrested. Get a job like everyone else and stop blaming the police.

i guess i'm missing some points here....are those of you opposed to police saying a dui is NOT a big deal?....are you nuts?!!!....more cops SHOULD tune-up these druken idiots and let it be known that if you're caught drinking and driving, a good old beat-down comes with your suspended liscence and jail time!....maybe then, fewer innocent people will die at the hands of drunk drivers!....God bless the police!...

That's exactly how I feel about running a red light once you stop me you pull my name no criminal record get outta here pal that's the way it should be then all the druggies you stop those are the people you be tough on not the good hard working taxpayer.
P.S I do not believe in stealing.
Wrong!!! Running a red light is illegal and you should get a ticket. How many times do you run a light? One is too many.

If someone like you ran a red light and hit you, you'd be mad, right? Of course. So you shouldn't do it either. Duh!

Hey, Disgusted, here is your one opportunity to come come down to a large city police department and do a ride along. We will personally show you what police officers do in a day. The good the bad and all the ugly stuff that most people who aren't cops, fireman or medics see on a daily bases. Out of control mentally disturbed people who want to kill themselves. Some of them want the police to kill them. Murderers, murder victims, Rape victims and rapist. Drug dealers and all the people who use drugs. Robbers, burglars,and all sorts of other unpleasant, sick, abusive people you want not invite to you house for dinner. Until you do the job you can't possibly know what you are talking about.

First of all, learn the difference between 'there' and 'their' before your next post, then move to another country if this one is so bad. If everyone who hates this country would leave, it would be a much better place.
