Monnie, on the surface it sounds like the police are great because the city of Tish is safe. The rest of what you wrote is just a cultural thing and has nothing to do with the police. Shopping at home isn't due to police presence, and if it is, that's a bad thing. Stores being full due to police presence would be a bad thing too. Those are examples of what makes Tish a nice place to be, but they're not examples of the police being a good thing.

Anyways, it sounds good that Tish is a safe place and must be because of the cops.

The reality is that the police presence in Tish has nothing to do with the safety of the town. The lack of criminals there is what makes it safe. You said it yourself - there's no crime there.

If that's the case, there's no reason to have a police force there. As Answer said, they're a waste of taxes.
truth is

Yes Tubby, BPD does have a good police force, but their tendency to pull you over for no reason gets tiring. If you happen to be going to work early in the a.m. (4a) they deem you suspicious. Of course they use the typical line that you were swerving or speeding (BS). Oh well, some are only doing their part of being the Barney Fife of the police force.
well perhaps

In reference to the Paleolibertarian comment above;

Being needlessly pulled over is a violation of law by police officers. Just because they are bored or do not know you or because it's the wrong time of day in their judgment to drive around does not give them any legal authority to stop you.

Mississippi requires law enforcement to have a just suspicion to pull you over. This just suspicion requires also requires them to demonstrate why any stop generating legal ramifications (going to court) was legal in the first place. If they stop you and charge you with something, they have to demonstrate why they were allowed to stop you at all or they risk having the whole case thrown out even if you did do something wrong. They are absolutely not allowed to go fishing. Going fishing means that if you can prove they went fishing, your charges are dropped and they potentially face some of their own.

However, you've said they simply stop you routinely and did not say you've been given tickets, etc. This is still illegal. It is not their job to stop people because they are bored. It's actually against the law for them to do so.

In order to combat this, I have a simple suggestion. Bring a video recording device with you when you feel that you may risk being harassed. If you mount it on the dash of your vehicle facing the road and record, you can establish in court that you were not weaving simply by playing back the tape. Also, if you are stopped, all you have to do is turn the camera towards the driver side and you'll capture the officer on tape with anything he says or does.

Do this often enough to establish a pattern and you can cause some serious hell to corrupt officers.

By the way, despite anything any officer EVER tells you, filming police officers is NOT illegal in Mississippi. The closest thing to a law on the books in MS about filming cops is 97-29-63, which only says that you cannot SECRETLY film other people. If the camera is on the dash and not concealed, the officer cannot charge you with anything. Given that it is not illegal to film them or anything else in public, they also cannot force you to turn the camera off. Even asking you to do so is a crime (tampering). Forcing you to do so is usually assault as physical force or intimidation is required to force you to do so illegally.

I should note that you do not have to be in a vehicle for this to work. You can do this on foot if you're being harassed. If you're stopped by any police for any reason other than a legally justifiable reason (and "I don't know you" isn't a legally justifiable reason) you can videotape them and if it happens often enough start to rain hell down on them for it. Just take it up the ladder - doing it through the local boys is never, ever going to do anything.

Also, you should be aware that you are not legally required to identify yourself or provide state issued identification to police officers just because they ask for it. If they ask for it, you are fully within your rights to request if they are asking for it due to being suspected of a crime or being legally detained. If you are not suspected of a crime or being legally detained, you do not have to give them any identification. It is illegal for them to even tell you otherwise, and illegal to arrest you for failing to provide identification if you are not suspected of a crime or being legally detained. Remember to video tape this part if you are video taping. Point blank, it is illegal to arrest you for failing to provide your identification unless you are suspected of a crime. If you're told that you are suspected of one, provide your id. If you're not, you don't have to provide it and there's nothing they can do about it.

I work for a particular organization that's heard about several jurisdictions in MS doing things like this. We've been doing just this to BPD, TishPD, and many other jurisdictions for quite some time. Interesting results have been found.

Three problems with your statement.

1, I don't think my boss would like that just yet.

2, you don't need to know where I work to look into those facts above and establish my credibility or lack thereof.

3, "your" is possessive. You meant to use the word "you're" which is a contraction of the words "you are". If you say "I want to know your credible" it would mean the same thing if I said "you should know my credible" which makes no sense.

That's because good people live there. Tish PD is synonymous with Gay PD.

Why don't you read the law books and the Mississippi Code? That is what makes this person credible. But then again, you must be illiterate if you can't understand plain English.
