So every time that I drive past a cop with one of my friends they have to say "Oh no, a cop! You'd better slow down". I look down at my speedometer and I'm going close to the speed limit so I don't. Guess what? The cop doesn't pull me over because I'm not speeding.
Everyone's always tried to tell me that cops are huge dicks that will pull you over for driving 1 MPH over the speed limit, but I've yet to be pulled over and I cruise by them going about 5 over. My guess is that people get pulled over for massive speeding (like 10-20 MPH over the limit- I see that happen all the time) and get a $500 speeding ticket that makes them so butthurt that they go around telling everyone how asshole cops are.
The other thing that gets to me is when a cop already has someone pulled over and everyone slows down to like 30 MPH. I'm guessing that this is because:
A. They think that the cop will somehow sense from outside his vehicle that they're speeding slightly, run to his car, make a rapid u-turn, and pull them over.
B. They're nosy fucks that like to watch people get arrested.
So why do people demonize cops? Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily trust them and I know that they're corrupt, but in America it's very easy to contest tickets and avoid getting searched. Sp why are you hating on cops?
