I love cops thread

Enough of all the I hate cops threads, here is alittle change of pace.
I went to my cousins wedding in Wimberley over the weekend and on the way home had quite an interesting run in with a couple of state troopers. After leaving the reception and stopping for gas I settled in for the 2.5 hour drive home. It was about 11 PM and I am leading an older diesel Ford down a lonely stretch of highway 21 when out of nowhere my detector goes ballistic. No big deal I have the cruise set dead on 65 (GPS indicates 64) so I just keep rolling. Suddenly out of the darkness a trooper Camaro darts out of the ditch and directly in front of me but he takes off in a hurry and I don't even have to tap my brakes. I look in my rearview and there is a second set of headlights belonging to a trooper Tahoe. About a half mile down the road the Tahoe blips his lights and siren I guess this scared the diesel as he pulled into the gas station we were approaching. So its trooper Camaro, me, Trooper Tahoe. About a mile down the road the Tahoe again blips lights and siren, I am doing nothing wrong so I keep driving. Third time Tahoe blips lights and sirens only this time he gets on the horn and tells me to speed up. The Camaro runs up to about 75-80 and starts to pull away I oblige and accelerate to 70 and again cruise control. About 2 miles later the Camaro is steadily pulling away and again the Tahoe blips lights and sirens and tells me to speed up. Again I up my speed by 5 and cruise it, I am now 10 over the limit sandwiched between two troopers and getting kinda scared. Finally the Tahoe makes his true intentions very clear, he comes on the horn and says look its late we want to get home you want to get home lets go, go as fast as you feel comfortable with and we will escort you as far as Caldwell. So for the better part of my trip I was flying down highway 21 at well over the speed limit sandwiched between two troopers and scaring the pants off of other drivers as we passed them with lights and sirens blaring. I have to say that was by far the most interesting run in with the law I have ever had, two of the coolest cops ever.

To all the cops on here, I know people love to hate you guys but as for me a very big THANK YOU for going out everyday and risking your lives to protect us (whether we like it or not). You guys are heros and deserve nothing but respect. Thank you for everything you do and keep up the good work.

Long story short, a friend and I went to Happy Hour. After Happy hour he was driving me to my car and he ran through police tape(a shooting had occured). The Officer asked where we had been, and he replied the Pub and Grill. The officer told us to go on our way and be carefull.
