If you display a Thin Blue Line sticker and are not a cop, then I have a low opinion of you to say the least.
TBL stickers were meant to show cops that people in their POV are cops so if they need help, they know it's coming or where to find it.
Nowadays, it means there maybe a gun in the car, and little else.
If you have a TBL sticker and I pull you over- and you're not a cop- then you can forget about getting a warning.The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it." -- Frederic Bastiat

It's like my grand dad always said: You pays your money, you takes your chances.
YOu probably heard it from a bitter civilian after he got a ticket.

Uh oh, here it comes... she's going to start her story off with "See, what had happened was..."The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

Um, Rhino, how did my name get into those quotes from sunshinegrl's posts? For the record, I'm not her, I don't have a sister, I'm not related to any LEO, and I've never even owned a car, much less driven a car with a blue line on it. What is this, "annoying poster profiling"? Do you think we "all look alike"?

11-26-06, 09:51 PM #34in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.
the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

Two points here:
1) I smell a troll.
2) Should my sense of smell be a touch off tonight, sunshine, TBL stickers are not a "free pass". While we all know there are a smattering of those in law enforcement who seem to expect they can get away with more because of their status, not all of us operate in that manner. The great majority of us are simply proud of our profession, one in which we see more in a week than most people see in a lifetime. As such, we live within our code of ethics, on and off duty. No, I am not perfect. Yeah, I probably violated the interstate speed law on the way home by a few miles (but not with reckless abandon). Yet the only thing I expect is that any officer who may stop me treat me with the same respect I shall give him or her and will use the very discretion we are all allowed. It is ignorantly vocal folks like you that feed the fire of negativity towards those who willingly protect society at a much greater risk to their own lives than you could likely muster. If your claim is true that your sister is a law enforcement officer, clearly you don't even have an ounce of respect for your sister if you so blithely think you can take advantage of her status.The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

There's no such thing as a free pass. When I pull you over, I have every intention of writing the ticket. Whatever happens in between me getting back in my car and leaving determines whether there is a warning or citation. Don't try to get over on cops, we don't like it.
