Typically in my state (Wisconsin) tickets for things like expired registration, suspended driver license, and equiipment violations are dropped down to the lowest possible charge if the problem is taken care of before the court date. For example, if you were busted for driving with a suspended license and got it reinstated before your court date, you would end up with a charge of license not in possession or some such. Wonder if it is the same in Texas.

But beyond that, this is why we need better public transportation: we have far too many people driving when they can't afford it not because they're evil but because they have no choice.

Lots of ignorant Farkers in this thread. Things like no insurance, no reg, broken tail-light, etc are fix-it tickets, and eitehr cost zero or a nominal amount, like $25.

The ignorance is understandable, I guess, since I'm pretty sure that a lot of you aren't old enough to drive.

propasaurus: Cop hands the man a $100 bill inside his $400ticket


No reg is generally a fix-it ticket. Probably w/ a cost of $25 (that's what it cost me last year).

FTFA: "Registration is valid for one year in Texas and costs $50.75"

GOD DAMN IT TO FARKING HELL! I've got a 16 year old truck and the Sacramento vampires are still charging me $200 every farking year. And recently some Democrat asshole wanted to farking TRIPLE the car registration fee. Yeah, farkers, dump on the poor some more. Sheesh! Where's OBL when you need him? Sacramento needs to be nuked. (I keed).

End rant.

On the other hand, I've got nothing but love in my heart for the 7 Garden Grove cops that gave us $125 one evening.

Rent Party: AverageAmericanGuy: Totally going to use this next time.

I had the same damn thing happen to me. I was just out of my divorce, destitute, and trying to feed two kids. Tabs didn't get paid. Driving on them ment my license got suspended. Moving a lot, and sleeping in my car sometimes, meant I never got the notices.

I got arrested, and ended up paying about $1200 in fines, along with 80 hours of community service. She went to Vegas twice a year on the child support money.


and this is why alimony and child support laws need reform.

RLY?

How's about sell the car, take the bus, feed the kids better?
Or has owning and operating a car become a right instead of a luxury?

Good on the cop for the pay it forward I guess...


Texas isn't big on the whole mass transit thing. If he wasn't working down town in Dallas, he probably couldn't find a bus route that would get anywhere near where he needed to go. In too many places mass transit is a non-starter.

I'm thinking the previous driver paid the cop a $100 to get out of the ticket, the cop stuck the $100 bill in his ticket book and accidentally gave it away.

Once cops are arrested and convicted for killing unarmed citizens, then and only then should they will be trusted.

The part about this story I like is that neither the guy nor the cop publicized this. It was the guys grandfather. And when they found out who the cop was he asked to remain anonymous. That is giving with the true spirit of giving. It was heartfelt. Maybe the cop had times he couldn't afford some things and had to make choices and maybe someone helped him out and he was just passing it along. Lord knows I've been in the same situation and people helped me out and it was nice and unexpected.
Most of the time people give something or do something and they have to shout it from the rooftops "hey, look what a great person I am, look what I just did!". For once it's nice to see authentic charity.

Solaris: krackpipe: Solaris: Kalashinator: planes: cowgirl toffee: Only a dis-honest cop would have a $100.

Evidently, you haven't seen the pay scales for police in your area. Here in Minnesota, they rival small-town bank president salaries.

The Menards I used to work at had a St. Paul PD cop in there for theft prevention once or twice a week on a rotating basis. In those 8 hours they were paid triple what SPPD normally gets.

Fun fact: at least back then ('05-'06) St. Paul and Minneapolis cops were the 2nd-highest paid police force in the US, after the LAPD.

And they also have to file 1099's on that off duty income, which means that triple SPPD money ends up being about half of what they normally earn.

Boo hoo. The guy pulling you over for rolling a stop sign in Berkeley was making $10,000 per month to do so, 2 years ago.  Good luck at any other job pulling that kind of money with a HS diploma. And finding one with a HS diploma that has a 20 yr public safety retirement at 90% of wages, COLA's, a health plan, and lifetime concealed carry? No other job like it.

Aside from the fact that public safety official salaries are voted for/approved by elected officials the community choose to represent them...

I'm curious what you think someone should earn, that has to respond to incidents similar to those that occurred in Conn.?


I am more curious why people who say cop is an easy job requiring no work aren't applying for the job.

I guess it's like how the folks saying how high on the hog welfare recipients live still go to work: they are full of shiat.

Yeah. I thought that too. Would have been nicer to just let him go with a warning.


At least with giving him the ticket, the cop had some assurance the guy would use the money for his car (knowing the ticket would be dismissed if he does) instead of using it for hookers/blow.
