    Cool You're off duty and in a strange land......

    You are off duty and traveling with your family in a strange, faraway place..........whether it is in the next county, across the country or even in a foreign country. You see a cop do something outrageous. We have all been there, even non-cops. What were the details of that encounter and what would you do different? And Why? You show me yours first and then I'll show you mine!

    Wink

    Aside from BrickHead and Farva, maybe I can steer this in the right direction. I was involved in a disturbance at a private residence in Oklahoma once and I clearly started it and finished it. The cops arrested HIM. I admitted to them that I whooped his ass, I didn't have a scratch on me (even though he threw me through a door), he had a broken arm and a slipped disk.....They arrested HIM and apologized to me because I was military and he wasn't....that's what they told me. WOW!

    When I was in Germany there was no such thing as police brutality.
    My wife, the Captain, got knocked down in a crosswalk by a German driver; the cops jerked him out of his car and beat the snot of him.

    Worked with a German Federal cop a couple of times on nicey, nicey stuff, community relation thinges. Everything went well and if it didnít he told them who he was and then everything got a thousand times better.

    I was friends with every German cop I could find.

    In another country, you're risking going to jail or getting the shit beat out of you. Not every country is real choked up about professional courtesy. Besides, you have zip, nada, no authority whatsoever there.

    well I have had mostly good interaction while abroad. 4 encounters that I can think off are as follows:

    Edinburgh (Scotland): while drunk, stumbled upto a cop and had a chat for about 10 minutes before asking him why he was leaning over and realised he was holding a violent prisoner on the floor. Felt like a complete idiot but he just laughed, then a female officer arrived and told me to join their force cause I would look cute in their uniform

    In S Africa I was with my force but the guys there couldnt have been nicer, took us everywhere, organised some good fun (like the shooting range and yes, I am good!) and even sorted out a very embarrasing incident for a Sergeant that was with us for which the prick didnt even apologise or thank them for.

    On the other hand, while in Eastern Europe I was told to fuck off when I approached a parked patrol car and while in Thailand I was mobbed by 10 year old hookers, pimps and drug dealers. Shouted to a cop that was watching, he lit a smoke, laughed and walked away.

    I have also heard from other cops about how far PC got them. 1 spent his wedding and honeymoon in agony after getting arrested and beaten in Mexico 20 odd years ago (He admits he deserved the arrest). He reckons the badge made it worse not better. Also heard another guy got robbed in Thailand, stopped the cops who demanded a bribe to get his stuff back, when he refused he was arrested and it was only when the LT saw his badge he was released.

    Now cops can be pricks like everyone else but I believe these stories.

    Got stopped in Mexico for "running a red light", that amazingly appeared green to me,,,,anyhow, I just gave him the $40 and went on my way.

    There's a huge, huge difference in another country and another county.

    Another county would depend on the circumstances. Yeah, there are times I might step in, but I doubt it. It would take quite a bit for me to identify myself at the scene.

    However, that doesn't mean it would be ignored. There is such a thing as getting your licks in and I have no problem with that. But just beating the shit out of someone because you can is something else. I would report something if I thought it went way over the line. Cops doing that to some stranger doesn't mean they won't do it to someone you know or in your family.

    When I was going to college in Tucson, a friend of mine and I went down to Nogales, Mexico. Some little Mexican apparently thought I was a lot drunker than I was because when he tried rob me with a knife, I coldcocked him. The Federales showed up mere moments later and I was in jail. My bail just happened to equal all the money I had on me plus my watch. I haven't been back to Mexico since and don't plan to.

    I would not put federales in the same group as law enforcement officers.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
