Around 11:30 P.M. Saturday night I was cruising down Foothill and turned onto Myrtle, going toward the freeway. I notice there's a police car behind me. I don't speed. I'm cautious at the intersections. The police department has a bright floodlight shining into drivers eyes that are heading the same way I'm heading. There's a police SUV parked right next to it. I am looking over to see if something's going on. I drive through an intersection, slowly and looking all around to make sure it's safe. I get down to almost Colorado and park, because I'm going to see a friend play. I get out of my truck and see a police car has pulled up and turned on its lights. I had not been pulled over. I had parked. The lights never came on until I had parked.

The officer gave me a number of nonsense reasons why he pulled me over. I didn't use my blinker. Okay, fair enough. Then why didn't he pull me over as soon as I'd made the turn from Foothill onto Myrtle? He followed me all the way down to Colorado and didn't turn on his lights until I'd parked and gotten out of my vehicle. He said I went through an intersection. I asked him if there was stop sign, he said no. I asked if I'd gone through a red light, and he said no. He said that, owing to the power outage, I should have been more careful when I went through the intersection. But I looked both ways at every intersection I went through. I was driving under the speed limit.

What he ended up giving me a ticket for was inoperable turn signal, which is untrue. My signal works. I just didn't use it. The ticket also says "stop proceed w/caution", but I have no idea what that refers to.

I was pulled over for no real reason. If it had truly been because I didn't use my blinker, I should have been pulled over immediately after turning onto Myrtle, and that's what it should say on my ticket.

The police in Monrovia (or is it just this one little jackass?) are corrupt and are stealing money from the citizens. Have Monrovia cops always been corrupt liars? Or is this something new?

FYI if the power is out and the signal doesn't work at an intersection it's considered a 4 way stop sign. If the Cop didn't tell you that, he's a moron. And he probably didn't stop for it either.
