I don't dislike police officers. I dislike the bad ones, like I dislike the bad members of every profession, but overall I like cops. They have a hard job, an important one, for which they work long hours and don't bring home a lot of pay. I think the job is critical and admirable.

The US would be in a real serious mess without well trained police officer's on the street. We need to get the state to mandate that all officer's be trained before hitting the streets. These young kids in small towns playing cops and robbers are the reason that many of my police friends, get harrassed by the public; When one of these young kids rip down the public's trust,a REAL police officer has to go back and raise it up again. It takes 5 mins. to tear it down and a year to fix it. This is why training is important!!!!

I seen a Sophia Police officer last week FLYING to a car accident at least 80 MPH past the Mc Donalds!!! Totally unaceptable behavior for a professional;He risked his life and the life of other's going to a vehicle accident. If one truck had slowed down and not pulled into the parking lot when he did, there would have been a fatal accident with that Sophia police officer. This is an example of very poor training and lack of professionalism. The 90 day wonders their hiring are just using Sophia for the chance at the academy and them they move on to other cities.

We need a local police chief and local officer's. I mis Randy White around here, he was a real example of what police officer's should be around here, Iwish him well with the county.

I really wish that Tomi Peck wins the election so she will get the HELL out of Sophia! Please, everyone vote for Tomi Peck for magistrate......Please!

When there is a car accident, police are suppose to get there as quickly as possible. Hince the name first responders. The job of a police officer is to get there, secure the scene, and make sure everybody is alright. People also get in fights after wrecks, they start jawing eachother with emotions flying high, then a routine fender bender turns into a fight. One could get even more mad and kill the other who knows?
So professor if your car was turned upside down in the middle of the road, maybe possibly on fire with you trapped inside would you want that Sophia police officer or whoever gets the call taking his time getting there. Nope. Didn't think so. Just keep in mind EOC just hollers a police officer saying there is a 3 car MVA, or 2 car doesn't matter whichever you wanna say and then gives them a location they have no clue what they are about to respond to. So get there quickly as possible.

That's right, my point excatly. Nothing a police officer does is routine or safe. The unpredictable can and will happen. I can see what the professor is saying, just have to hope that when that police officer is driving that fast he doesn't have tunnel vision and his watching the other traffic around him.

The number one cause of police officer fatalities, is traffic accident's. Driving to a scene at 80Mph in a 45, is not only dangerous, it's STUPID! Killing someone to get to a scene that may or may not have angry victims yelling at each other, is NO excuse for driving like that. The academy doesn't teach that and if they were to get in an accident, the law would be against the officer for speeding and driving without due-reguard! Many many many lawsuits have been won from police, fire and EMS causing accident's and some situations were pushed by the DA for even killing people and they end up doing hard time as a result of thier stupidity and neglect of duty. The ones who are trained properly,understand the risks and have less frequent accident because of their training. Like I said in my earlier post, the starsky and hutch mentality is for hollywood and NOT of rour streets.

You can find hundreds of examples on the net about police officer's that are killed or injured while pursuing criminals, but here is one:

Police Officer Adrian Morris was killed in a vehicle crash while pursuing a vehicle on I-95, near the Powder Mill Road interchange, shortly before 1:00 pm.

Officer Morris and his partner had been investigating a theft when they spotted a car being driven by the suspect and attempted to stop it. The officers pursued the vehicle onto southbound I-95 and chased it a short distance until the vehicle purposefully cut them off, causing the patrol car to leave the roadway and enter a ravine. Officer Morris was ejected from the vehicle.

Both officers were transported to a local hospital where Officer Morris succumbed to his injuries.

The driver of the vehicle they were pursuing continued to flee and remains at large.

Officer Morris had served with the Prince George’s County Police Department for 2-1/2 years and had previously served as an Explorer with the department. He was assigned to the 6th District.

It takes training,common sence and a good leader to have safe police officer's in your area.

So you're saying officer Morris was not a good officer because he was chasing someone and wrecked and died? You make no sense and you're dumb. Since you are so smart I'm sure Sophia has some type of ride along program.. So since you know it all go ride along with one of em and show em how it's suppose to be none.. Oh wait, you can't.. Won't leave that computer screen I forgot.. You Know nothing, come live it for once.
Just wondering

Professor isn't going to ride with any of them. He is a coward and would rather set behind a computer screen than do the job.

They should appoint Officer Boggs Chief in Sophia, everyone I talked to including council members of the town really liked him. You never heard of him harassing people, yet ticketed the people who needed it. But Im sure Professor2020 will have something negitive to say about this officer as well, always downing our officers.
