    I know this is way, way, way off-topic, but I thought that with all the cop-bashing that goes on around here, this would be a refreshing change...

    Yes, that is a refreshing change of the (often monotonous) cop-bashing that happens. For every cop-bashing thread, it would be nice to moderate it with a civil-servant response. Might even things out a bit.

    Dispite govt. excesses, the rule of law and the role of the civil servant/magistrate will never be a bad thing, just one which needs constant regulation and care.

    Outstanding! I should send a copy of this thread to my "neighbor-cop", along with a copy of the video of his 2 dozen traffic violations that I have documented of him, in uniform, in his patrol car, running the corner stop sign at an estimated 15 MPH. Anyone suspect my neighbor-cop would write himself the 2 dozen tickets? It is refreshing to see that there are still officers who believe in the saying, "If it's sauce for the goose..."

    I don't believe a word of this story. He probably drove past the bus because he was in a hurry to break down the door of an innocent person(without knocking of course) and steal their guns in the process.

    JK. There are many many many times more good cops out there than bad. I like hearing stories about the good guys in a good light.

    is this like

    you steal $50 and then give it back......or maybe run over someone and then confess it to police. Wait no, I guess it is better because otherwise he would of gotten away with it....or better, perhaps he knew he was busted because of cameras on the bus or something and did it as a preemtive measure to prevent his being disciplined.....either way, sounds weird. Maybe he just wanted to get laid or something.

    ST, yeah so I'm a skeptic

    Do you think he wrestled himself to the ground?

    To use the same "logic" the cop-apologists, this is just an isolated incident.

    The difference? This is likely the only incident of this sort that's going to be happening for a WHILE! Meanwhile, demonstrators exercising their right to free speech will continue to be gassed and beaten, falsely arrested, and sometimes shot. Offenders committing non-violent, victimless crimes will continue to have their doors kicked in, be thrown on the ground and cuffed, dragged through the system, and tossed into jails at taxpayer expense. SWAT teams will continue to be used for routine warrant service, including raids on completely and totally innocent people who will continue to die because of gross incompetence.

    So I'm really not impressed with cops in the aggregate, even if this guy's motives were pure.

    That's funny. I keep imagining the police officer version of "Fight Club"
