That is creepy and weird and scary and I have spent many many hours of my life driving through the dark roads of Mississippi and I hope never to do it again.

I can only hope the fake cop has a family of hillbilly cannibals in a farmhouse nearby he needs to feed.

Really? Because that sounds like something many cops would do.

/the rest would just help cover it up

Mississippi police would like to warn drivers that if an officer pulls you over and shoots you in the head, they most likely are not affiliated with any actual government organization unless you're black or brown or obviously/probably gay.

Best regards,
Mississippi police

that's a mighty optimistic view you have of the police, subby.

"The concern is that someone is posing as a law enforcement officer and that is how these vehicles end up on the side of the road."

That's what they're concerned about? Not the fact that there's some serial killer nutjob out there, but that he might be posing as a cop while serial killing people?
 
2012-05-15 10:57:28 AM
The CHP had that problem, but it was an actual cop. I think his moniker was the I-5 Killer.
 
2012-05-15 10:59:59 AM
Nah, I was confusing this guy with the I-5 Killer. My bad.
 
2012-05-15 11:46:44 AM
I would be willing to bet cash money that at least half of cops out there would engage in summary execution if they were certain they could get away with it. And a quarter of the others would be willing to shut the fark up about knowledge of it if THEY wouldn't get in trouble for failing to report it.

And about five percent of Farkers would have exactly zero problem with it. And they all show up as Grey 1 on my screen already.

You can't see why pretending to be a cop would be a concern here? Maybe in terms of victim accessability? Or do you pull over for anyone who flashes their brights at you?

You'd lose that bet. Here in Seattle we demonstrated that they can get away with it even in front of witnesses, and the murder rate only went up a few points if I recall correctly.

Unless you're black. Then they probably are affiliated with an actual government agency.

I thought the concern was having to tow away all the cars that were littering the side of the road.

Also, if you have Texas plates and are driving on I-10 in Mississippi, you'll probably get pulled over.

Yeah, because Mississippi cops have just about shot all of the black people here in the state.

Real cops wait until you're home, kick down your door, shoot all your pets, THEN shoot you in the head.

Didn't use turn signal for lane change? BANG
56 in a 55? BANG
Not stopping for a school bus? BANG
Not pulling your RV so other cars can pass? BANG BANG BANG
 
2012-05-15 01:43:06 PM
Just hit the gas if you see police lights behind you. They all drive those old 1950s squad cars and can't possibly catch you.
 
2012-05-15 01:45:15 PM
I was going to suggest that the killer might be a real police officer, but it seems that previous posters have covered that angle already.
 
2012-05-15 01:45:44 PM
I still get to lodge a complaint with a governmental agency, right?
 
2012-05-15 01:46:37 PM
They advise drivers to call 911 and verify that a legitimate officer is pulling them over or drive to a well-lit, crowded place before stopping, actions permitted under Mississippi state law.

So if I'm driving along a Mississippi highway at night, and a real cop attempts to stop me, and I don't stop immediately, is that really an "action permitted under Mississippi law", or is it "leading the police on a chase"? Who gets to decide? The cop?

Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker signal that says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know you're pulling off for a proper place to talk. It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.

They've been publicizing this on the TV stations of at least two states. The cop might get annoyed, but isn't going to do anything about it while this is happening. Of course, it's going to go better for you if you flash your lights and proceed slowly and with all due signal usage, than if you just keep doing 90.

I bet we have a Dexter situation here, where the killer is actually a cop as well.

they most likely are not affiliated with any actual government organization

Unless it's an actual cop like Craig Peyer, the CHP officer who killed Cara Knott in a traffic stop in San Diego.

I've done it here in California, the officer did not ask me at all why I pulled off the expressway into a well lit parking area. Illinois has the same law. Helps that I am a female.

If you do something to piss him off, don't worry, he'll let you know.

Possibly urban legend. But according to my parents, one of their friends daughters was the person who had the ticket which was changed to hopefully give an alibi.

That's what the law says. You are allowed to turn on your flashers and drive at a "safe" speed to a well lit or populated area. Safe meaning to continue going to speed limit, not slowing down to 35 on the interstate so that you create a hazard.

So if a cop is following me with their lights going and I don't pull over, I can just say that due to recent events, I didn't want to take the risk. Hope that stands up in court

That's not exactly what's going on here. Let me elaborate.

What's happened is they think some idiot has bought a blue dash light, and has a vehicle which looks like an undercover car - like a crown vic, impala, or charger - and is pulling people over and shooting them.

I know they've stopped running unmarked cars in the area thanks to this - all of the patrol and non-narcotics details are using marked vehicles.
