Just like any other person at a job, cops will slip into formulas. The same jokes, the same routes, the same actions they’ve always done. It takes something like this story to break them out of the formula.
Sure, not everyone has a pilot’s license, but eventually, there was going to be somebody who would be able to pull it out, as smug as you can imagine. Of course, this is probably only going to work once or twice even if you do have the opportunity to show off that you’re a pilot. Stick to the safer speeds and you’ll be fine.
Well, Serve and Protect
That's really all we have of this story, so we don't know any other details. Was the woman acting disorderly due to her drunkenness? Was she just minding her own business? If so, why did the police officer in question feel the need to speak with her?
We'll never really know, but since the drunk girl is described like that – drunk – it's pretty easy to assume that she just wasn't holding her liquor. Then, of course, there's the demand that the police officer helps her with her jacket just because she has asthma. We don't know, maybe it did make sense.
He's Definitely a Dad
What's one of the best weapons adults have against kids? Embarrassment. Once you hit a certain age – around thirty, by most scientific estimates – you lose your ability to feel much embarrassment, and it dwindles further and further as time goes on.
Kids and teenagers, though, think about everything in terms of embarrassment. Thus, the best way to make sure they always remember not to break the rules is to get them to do something embarrassing. This police officer knows all the truth, and even if no one saw it happen, that student is always going to stop for stop signs.
Is This That Purple Rain We've Heard So Much About?
Poor, departed Prince had a lot of stages in his life, but thankfully “public flasher” wasn't one of them. He did put out that one movie, though, and people who saw it might have just preferred he flash them instead of whatever was going on for the ninety-minute run time. It feels more like three hours if you've ever watched it, which I have.
Thankfully, this vagabond didn't have any chance to get away, and he wasn't able to convince the fisherman that he was one of them. From the description, it didn't sound like he had much of a chance anyway.
It's Just Not Something You See Every Day
Rubbernecking is a dangerous practice if you don't know what's going on around you. It usually happens when you see an accident, but there are other reasons, as well. Like seeing a couple of turkey buzzards getting it on.
There aren't even any crimes involved in this story, but it's bound to be memorable. Even better, the cop took the high road and was a hundred percent truthful about why he had rear-ended another car. In most areas, the person rear-ending is the one at fault, even if the other car did stop unexpectedly. Even the CO remembered it.
