why is it up to the cops to play taxi when one is driving a car with expired registration sticker. if she is so smart she should have notice it. she isn't the first one nor the last to do it so like i said is it up to the cops to play taxi with everyone that drive with a expired registration sticker to drive them home, she could have called a taxi to come pick her up if you do the crime do the time that goes for attorneys too. i believe the cop could have offered to call a taxi for her but thats about it. lawyers are bigger liars then what cops are if you want my opinion..she should thank the cops for towing her car what happen if she got into a accident and killed someone with that expired sticker the cop could have saved her a lot of grief... good job for the cops...

A pulled over drunk driver gets more respect. At least he is safely driven home. What an idiot this officer is - how was he trained - I would certainly examine the training at the academy as it relates to common sense.
He deserves to loose his job - not just a suspension as he obviously does not have the intellect and good judgement to continue in this job.
and thugs. well certainly, especially if its a drunken pillar of the community or a drunken politician or a drunk cop or a cop's drunk wife or a tramp the cop is banging or wants to bang..........

In September of 2013, I was in this same position I had with me my 1yr old daughter and my 7yr old daughter. The officer called in back up as I was upset. Two cruisers sped in and swarmed us. I was told to get my stuff out and the children and I asked if I knew someone to tow me could I have them come get the vehicle? He said I could, and once I got a hold of them, he said " No its taken care of I have someone coming now." Just happened to be the worst and most disrequarding tow company who slammed my vehicle around breaking my front fender and possibly stole items from my vehicle that I can't prove. They later charged me 800$ to get it out. The Corporal Prior of the Winchester police department told me I could come the next day to get the plates he removed if I could show that I had gone down to register them. I did this, went there for my plates to go get my vehicle out and was told they were locked up in evidence and I had to wait for the chief to get them. I waited 2hrs with my children for the chief to be told he wasn't coming in that day. Then low and behold, Prior came out saying "oh I didn't know he was here, here are your plates." I was left in a parking lot with my girls to find my own way home carseat and all and messed with the next day when I did everything I was told. Come to find out my children were never added to any report!

Is that all they did to you? Oh, well, then you must come to Pittsfield. Beautiful Pittsfield, a art mecca where cops are deployed on OT missions patrolling downtowns cultural district sector of fine tax payer subsidized businesses. Beautiful Pittsfield where you, like an 83-year-old man, could be arrested and dragged off to the gulag for integration for the crime of passing through a yellow light sector without your proper papers. As in the case of an 83-year-old man who was on his way to hospital with heart condition when he passed through a yellow light sector and was dragged of to the gulag. An experience that evoked in the elderly man memories of Nazi occupied Denmark in 1943. Thus leaving the elderly man with nightmares and insomnia. Beautiful Pittsfield, soon to be as safe as Syria.

Are you trying to get others to come to pittsfield and practice what you learned in North Adams. It looks like you learn how to satisfy your mother from an 83 year old man? You need a refresher course by all means. A lot has changed since denmark 1943. Mothers need sons to go down on them. No more nazi's to force them it is all volunteer work. Go bend your mother over a chair and have at her. Don't be afraid.

HEROIC COPS SAVE BLIND WOMAN FROM FLOOD WATERS

911: Where is she?

Caller: About four foot underwater.

Monday night the hero officers who made the save spoke exclusively with CBS 12 News.

When the rain came down hard Thursday night and continued into Friday there were serious consequences for places like Boynton Beach.

"The whole city was basically underwater," said Officer Evan Esteves.

Drivers were stalling out by the hundreds, police officers were closing down streets trying to keep some kind of order in all of this.

But during the middle of one of the most hectic shifts in a long time, officers Evan Esteves and Rocky Zavattaro saved the life of a blind wheelchair-bound woman.

It started with a call for help around 5 oclock Friday morning.

The officers returned to the area to talk about how it all went down, when every second mattered.

They helped a homeless woman stuck in flood waters in a wooded area along SW 8th Street in Boynton Beach. &#12288;

We're told that the blind handicapped woman rescued is likely still in the hospital or at a shelter recovering.

"HERO COP" MAKES SECOND RESCUE JUST DAYS APART

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8)- Just days after he helped save a family from a raging apartment fire in Clairemont, a heroic San Diego police officer is at it again.

This time, officer Zach Bradley pulled a suspected drunk driver out of her wrecked vehicle. An SUV flipped over and hit a natural gas meter on the side of an apartment building in Clairemont.

It happened just hours after Bradley wrapped up a press conference where he spoke about rescuing a woman and her two daughters as they jumped from a second-story building engulfed in flames Tuesday morning.

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8)- A San Diego police officer who helped two teen-aged girls and their mother trapped on the second story of their apartment building to escape during a raging fire Tuesday morning is being heralded a hero.
