Officer wants to race

My son and I were sitting at a light last night when this dark gray Tahoe pulls alongside. The guy motioned for me to roll down the window. "Wanna race?" he says.

As I looked over, I could see that he was in uniform and sitting in an unmarked patrol car; shotgun, console, badge, the works. I was a bit taken aback there for a few seconds and didn't say anything, then he said, grinning, "Well, maybe not...".

He went on to ask about how I liked the car and all. Said he had a friend with a dark blue LT. We exchanged pleasantries, then he wished me a good day and we left.

I wondered though, if I had grabbed a hole shot on him right at that first moment would the judge have let me off because the officer invited me?




Naaahhhhhh

I personally think he might have been trying to trap you into a hefty ticket, but who knows?

It would be your word against his in court, he's a cop...your not.

Without proof of what the officer did you've already lost.

Nothing would have happened in court. Entrapment, a cop can't try and entice you into doing something illegal.

what a shitty thing to say.

anyway, the cop was probably a car guy and was just JOKING. It was probably his way of striking up a conversation with you.

lighten up people. cops are NOT the bad guys !!!!

Just because you believe cops arent the bad guys doesnt mean that all are great. Cops are people and just like any people you may come across. Not all are what you tend to think they are.

yep, and he's got dashcams and audio too.
It'd be too easy to pull that in court. doubt it would get to that point though. car guys are car guys, COPS TOO!

Sounds like he was just joking.....Probably just wanted to ask about the car. On a side note if you are one of those melons who look to race at stoplights I hope you don't accidently kill someone. Sorry to sound preachy.

Camaro's are still not too common around our town, so when you see one it's sort of an event, if you're a car guy. He was being friendly. I think he was a car guy.

There are a couple of young state troopers that run the same route my mom takes to work in her Acura TL-S they asked her to race one time and she did right up to the speed limit, now every time she sees them they rev it up for her or play with her. Some cops just like having fun I guess!

If they asked you to race, you might be able to get out based on entrapment?

I'm a cop and I joke with people all the time. We are human beings as well. It is pretty obvious that the cop was just joking and making conversation. For those of you that want to be immediately judgemental about cops, check out the attached link of one of my fellow Houston Police Officers and brother that died in the line of duty today. He was responding to assist another Officer call last night, lost contol, and flipped his car. He died hours later. This all happened as most of us slept soundly. The Officer leaves behind a wife (Houston Police Cadet and a 3 year old son). Not a lecture, but please don't forget that we are the good guys. If you want to see how good folks respond to the post about the Officer, check out my facebook (add me on at my email a.giraldo007@yahoo.com) or Houston Police Department under facebook. Thanks for hearing me out. It's been a terrible day for us. :( God bless y'all and have a goodnight. Here is the link http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...cal&id=7449569

Hmmm, maybe 15-20 years ago or so in my old Trans Am, an unmarked car and I decided to stretch our legs a little. I knew what he was, but his smile was all I really needed to know about him! So we ran for I don't know how many miles, until I got to my exit in Madera. At which point as he came around me from behind, we shot each other a Look, Grin, and a Nod...and each went on our way. Him, to wherever he was going...me, to the card room where I knocked the game over pretty good!!! AND in case anybody is going to have a conniption fit about this story, let's just say it was all hypothetical

Reading these threads I start to believe that a lot of people have some seriously cynical outlooks on life.

Cute story
