February 4, 2009ok so this morning before class i was on the way to pick up my girlfriend. and i was goin 9 mph over the speed limit and i passed two motorcycle cops goin the the oppisite direction. they didnt hit their lights *or* anything so i kept cruising. i turned into my girlfriend neighborhood and i stopped right at the entrance because their was a school bus loading and unloading kids. well the two cops hauled passed me going down the road i just turned off of with out thier lights on. well i drove off and once i got the the first stop sign they pulled into the neighbor hood with no lights on and i turned the corner and started driving then they hit their lights and i pulled over and stopped. they pulled me out of my truck at gun point and hand cuffed me sayin i was trying to run from them. i got a minor in possession ticket (chewing tobacco), a 64 in a 55 ticket and passing a school bus ticket. they gave me a warning for running from them. i thought it was retarded because if really wanted to run i wouldnt have sat behind the school bus in the first place. these are my first tickets. the only reason they didnt take me to jail is becaause they didnt have a transport car to take me down town. i thought i would share my story.
February 4, 2009I''d get a lawyer and fight it. Sounds completely bogus. Do you have a witness?
February 4, 2009Does sound a lot suspicious! Especially if you pulled right over when the lights came on...johnB
Also there is a State Wide Crack Down in Texas. To many Deaths caused by unsafe driving and Dangerous driving. Guess Ill have to slow down Dang-it!!
February 4, 2009see thats the problem i dont have any witnesses. i was alone and if someone did see it then i dont know ''em. but yeah i would fight it but who will the judge belive a sixteen year old kid *or* two police officers. and yeah i guess i should start slowing down too.
February 4, 2009I dont even know what to say. I hope you parents dont come down on you to hard. But yes i would definitely fight it. Do cops even have radar on their motorcycles? And you sat behind the school bus, how can they say you didnt. This is ridiculous, an abuse of power.
February 4, 2009ridiculous, do all you can to fight it
February 5, 2009That sucks protest as far as you can being 16.
February 5, 2009I would fight it too. At least dispute the charges. There should be way for you to do that.
February 5, 2009Sounds like more cops on an ego trip. Enough times of that crap and enough people complain the best they will ever achive is an unarmed security gaurd. Not saying its a bad job, just bad for a cop to get demoted to it.
February 5, 2009yeah i am goin to do all thats is feasible for me to fight this in court and yeah they were on a huge power trip. seriously i pulled over and stuck my hands out the window and they put to glock 40''s in my face. im not a scary guy im like 5'' 11" and 150lb. it was really dumb
February 5, 2009no straights *or* other mods for you son.... You got tickets to pay....
