Until you've met a 'Southern Police Officer' you really havn't met a Police Officer.
 
Some e-mails are far better than others .....

"These are actual comments made by South Carolina Troopers that were taken off their car videos:

1. "You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through."

2. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."

3. "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document." (My Favorite)

4. "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

5. "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you." (LOVE IT)

6. "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"

7. "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"

8. "Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

9. "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

10. "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop."

11. "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

12. "In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC." ( National Crime Information Center )

13. "Just how big were those 'two beers' you say you had?"

14. "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."

15. "I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."

AND THE WINNER IS....

16.. "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't.
Sign here."

"We can write as many as we WANT" I've used that one myself. Maybe it helps that I did my OJT in Biloxi.

Personal, true, and unforgettable experience.
We got pulled over by an officer in N.Georgia, just south of GSMNP. May 1978
He comes up to the window....

"You been nippin' boys ?"

:rolleyes:

What about these Montana Fish and game wardens from the TV show "Wardens". Sadly, sometimes I have a hard time not laughing...

There is a park ranger is one Missouri State Park that has the ability to turn any minute infraction into a verbal altercation. He approaches everyone with sarcasm and self-righteousness. He is the only ranger I have ever complained about and I have met many others who avoid a beautiful park because this one guy is so antagonistic. I'm not going to mention the park. If you REALLY want to know, just PM me...lol!

Not the same guy; but same attitude. Driven for hours and exhausted. Pulled over in a Park and laying on the grass next to my car dead asleep. Boot kicking on the bottom of my shoes. Nothing about me looked like a 'vagrant.' Driving a two year old Mercedes Benz, white shirt and suit pants.

'Move on or I'll have to arrest you' conversation ensued. I let him arrest me; Judge apologized when I told him I was not safe to drive, needed some sleep and there no motels in the area that I know of. 'Until you've slept in a rain filled slit trench you don't understand the need for sleep. Sleeping on dry ground is a good deal.'

Asked the Bailiff for my wallet and asked are these your business cards? Vice President Rainier Bank Corporation.

He had. My MB out of impound, day in a half in a local hotel and all meals furnished. Had Dinner and Breakfast with the Gentleman. He was retired JAG Officer and had people standing before him who couldn't even talk any more and none do to drinking.

Edit: He did ask if there was any trace of alcohol in him, on him or in the MB. "No"
