No one is above the law Sir. Thank you for your service. And I wish I would have been the one that stopped you, I would have thanked you for your service, given you a hand shake and had you on your way. Thank you again Sir for what you do for our Country.

I speed and know ill never get a to ticket, why because my husbands a cop, it's the truth, we have the thin blue line sticker on back of our car, so yea ill never get a ticket, why because my husband risks his life for unnappreciative jerks, plus if u don't like someone then he or someone in his shift will pull them over and write them lots of tickets losers
Well well well its nice to see you post this;! So I figure you and those "cop wives" who think like you are the main reason cops are writing your spouses badge number on tickets now lol.......see that sticker is to show the following: there's a cops family inside, that the officer has the blue stripe for fighting everyday and putting their lives on the line to protect and serve. The black is for those who have fallen for the greater good. Now understand your role - you are the spouse it makes for no good rep for you to post ignorance like this BC first off that's not what the sticker is for now be it as it may it does help you in some situations you may get caught up in but never get it twisted they let go BC they are showing respect but there is NO LAW that you should get out of what you've done!!! Honestly keep up with that attitude i hope you never run across someone who feels that what you've done outweighs respect to the sticker. Your use for it is inappropriate and just a hint yes the sticker may prompt them to look past it but hopefully you have a copy of your spouses commission card to go along with it because you may very well run across ME and not get off with the commission card lol yes i said ME please understand the law is the law and my husband has a sticker on his vehicle but that's because his tent is darker because i drive it he also carries my commission card BUT trust i would never try to talk an officer out of writing him a ticket if he feels he need it and if an fellow officer feels that way then the ticket should be written because regardless we are here to protect and serve and that may very well be from some of our family members. Watch out for Troop A because this female is not one to just dismiss because you possess a sticker and decide your law breaking should be looked over differently than others BC in my book endangerment is exactly what it means in my book across the board!!! Silly rabbits.....

Hey, state troopers give people who have connections tickets all the time. Believe it or not, those people can actually use up their favors too.

That being said, anyone who disregards the law, in an intentional or grossly negligent way, because they think that they are above it; needs to re-think their purposes. Do you know how many terrible injuries, tragedies, and deaths occur because people (even those people who may be law enforcement themselves) occur due to their line of thought that they can just get away with it...IT'S NOT ABOUT NOT GETTING A TICKET. It's about concern for the safety of others, if not, then your own safety and the safety of those in your vehicle.

Speed limits, stop signs, yeild signs, and no passing zones are NOT THERE TO PUNISH YOU (that is, unless you count stupid speed traps and traffic cams). They are there to protect you and every other human being who operates a vehicle.

Mild mental i totally respect you and thank you for your service. I don't think I'm above any law. Yes I've gotten out of tickets, carry my husbands commission card and mostly everyone know him. They have called him a couple times over my speeding and yes I've slowed down. I just don't like the people who disrespect what every LEO represents. The people who complain and say F the police or nasty comments towards me because my husband chose being a police officer as his profession to protect and serve. I wear my thin blue line bracelet to show respect for every officer and for one of his friends who was killed off duty and was a police officer. god bless all of you and Ty for your service, and I love troop a : )

Anybody in this Parish that doesn't know that there are those who get tickets fixed and those that can't get tickets fixed either doesn't get out of the house or they have the head up their azz. This topic is a no brainer. Cops speed if they want too. Who is going to call them down on it? Might as well put a target on your car. You pay political patronage, pat each other on the back and scratch that back if it itches and you and your family skate. Its not that hard to understand. And... it will not change.

Also to Mrs. Cops Wife, you are pretty cocky about that speeding. One day you are liable to run across a cop who does not believe in "professional courtesy" in a jurisdiction that you can't get your ticket "fixed" in. You'll be pretty much screwed when that happens. Try running through Golden Meadow for instance.

To serve and protect. To serve as a revenue source and to protect their pension.

We know, sometimes it can seem so unfair, you’re driving down the road and the speed limit says “55” but suddenly it’s “35” for a very short stretch, and there’s a police officer waiting under the sign writing tickets like there’s no tomorrow.

Along I-10, in the middle of Cajun country, tickets from a speed limit change at the bottom of a bridge covered 80 percent of the budget for Henderson, Louisiana, more than two million dollars.
the police chief and deputy deny it, but they’re accused of paying officers kickbacks to write tickets .

Damned if you do and damned if you don't! You want police protection, but you don't want to pay anymore taxes. People call when they have speeders in front of their homes and want them stopped, until it is you speeding in someones elses neighborhood. You people are always accusing law enforcement of being corrupt, this is to your own detriment. Crimmanals are taking the new found public oppression of the police and riding on the wave of critizism. Now they are resisting arrests, by running away when trying to be stopped by the police, look at the news it is increasing daily, they are shooting at the police and forcing the police to shoot them. These cops are putting their lives on the line to protect you, the complainers, for a poverty salary. They can't get a raise because you refuse to pay more in taxes, so departments are being forced to improvise, because there is no more money comming from state and federal sources. When you think you have the right to critizise them any longer, you don't, you people don't pay enough for them to take your stupid sh* anymore!!!! If it were not for the fact that the majority of law enforcement officers do this job for almost nothing because they love to serve and to protect, they should all quit, in fact they should all go on strike and let the criminals have their way with you all until you beg them to come back.

You lead by example. Getting my badge meant of all people, I should be an example. I make it point to drive the speed limit and obey posted signs unless there is a real emergency. As an officer, one should have your current brake tag inspection on your personal car, your proper insurance, and all the things we ask citizens to provide when we stop you. What's more, I don't ask for leniency if I break a law on the road in my personal car. It reminds me to be all the more careful.

I am a federal law official and I dont speed just because I know I can get away with it. So what happens when your speeding and you hit someone, you could end that persons life just because you feel privilaged to speed and not get in trouble. Grow up and stop abusing your privilages young lady...You have been very lucky because that little blue and black sticker of yours would give me moreso of a reason to cite your ass. You should know better.

good reply....yes I too am a victim of the occasional pissed off for being stopped for speeding.

but I agree, there are 2 places I don’t mind my tax dollars going 1) National security (military) and 2) Law enforcement/police protection.

Its what seperates America from the 3rd world violent places to live.

For the most part, I'm confident police do the right things for the right reason, but there’s always the few that do it incorrectly!

As Wolf said, what's the alternative, fending for ourselves against the criminals? I once heard a cop justify it like this: people who work at McDonalds get to eat for free, barbers get free haircuts, so cops get to speed for free. Don't know if I buy into that, but does make one think.

When there's nothing left to say "say something with NO DEPTH" this is a social network, exactly New Roads Topix short for "what's the new gossip" however I am NOT bound to spell out all of my words nor ensure its gramatically correct. NOW with that beingng said, try getting a written report from me and SEE if they are written correctly enough for you dear.:-D There wasn't any issues or concerns at the State AG's office prior to the "beat", were written correctly "on the beat and with the Detective Shield >> anything else you need to get off your chest.
