Motor Cop's blog and his dealings with many of his traffic stops.When I am browsing cop blogs, posts entitled, "job security" are usually describing a funny story dealing with a not so bright criminal or civilian. A lot of these laughs I get come from
The other night, there was a report of some guys driving around launching water balloons at unsuspecting pedestrians. They would hit people with balloons and then flip them off and yell obscenities at them. HF assisted with the call. To make a long story short, they all have court dates now. HF noticed the bucket in one of their trucks full of water balloons and also noticed that these guys weren't the sharpest tools in the shed, so he whipped out his phone and asked if he could take pictures of the inside of their vehicle. They almost seemed flattered at his asking and happily said, "Sure!" So he got some photographic evidence for the report. Then a couple of the guys got excited when they saw him taking pictures and asked, "Is this going to be in the newspaper?" HF thought fast and said, "Uh, yeah! Maybe!" So they all huddled together and asked him to take pictures of them. With their arms around each other, they did different poses and everything, even throwing in some of their own signature "gang" signs. The other officers that were with HF were trying not to laugh as HF took pictures. HF is pretty good at convincing people. Pretty much anytime he asks someone if he can look in their car, etc., they almost always say yes. I think it's his good looks. They really get him places.
I love when he responds to stuff like this. It's my favorite. Sure beats the other kind of stuff.
