"I think the officer was just trying to have fun,"

Hey, stick to pepper spraying college students and shooting dogs for fun if you don't want to get fired.

"The man who recorded a drag race he had with a Montgomery police officer says he's starting a petition to get the officer back his job."

"I think the officer was just trying to have fun," Spillers said. "I don't think he should be charged with anything and I don't think he should have lost his job."

Two guys on open road barely hit 60 in no traffic, kept control, cop was being friendly and human. By all means write him up, suspend him without pay, but firing? Mehhh.
 
2013-11-13 09:31:54 PM  
Did he arrest them when he lost?
 
2013-11-13 09:32:45 PM  
Time for that officer's bike to be civilly forfeited, his license to be immediately suspended, and felony drag racing charges to be filed.

This? This is what gets a cop fired? He should have stuck to shooting dogs and tasing grandma.

Yup.

I'm of the opinion that those who write and uphold the laws ought to be automatically given the strictest penalties for violating those laws instead of the slap on the wrist (if that) they get currently. They're in positions of authority and power. They know better.

Whatever the penalty could have been had this cop busted some schmoe for doing this ought to happen to him. If you don't like the idea of being held to a higher standard don't take a job enforcing those standards.

Encouraging illegal behavior and participating in it while wearing a uniform on duty?

That's just the sort of person I don't want being a cop.

/Of course there are thousands of cops that are even more deserving of being fired, but that doesn't make this okay in my mind.

CSB:  I worked as a page for a lawyer here in town when I was in high school.  The most lawyery incident I remember is a case that involved an out-of-state individual who received a ticket for doing 147mph on a parkway in the area.  He had a modified Mazda and had apparently gotten into a street race with an undercover police officer and had won the race.  Upon his defeat the UC cop turned on his lights and pulled the individual over and hit him with everything he knew (racing, reckless driving, etc...)  However, the police failed to impound the modified Mazda.  The lawyer produced paperwork at the hearing stating that the standard maximum speed for that particular car was only 118mph, since the state had no evidence that the vehicle could go faster than that then entire case was dismissed and the charging officer received a stiff reprimand for engaging in such dangerous behavior.  That's a lawyer worth her money.

This.

Sigh. Police should absolutely not engage in any activity that may build friendly rapport with civilians. Officer Fatty McWhitebread should pull the stick out his ass.
 
2013-11-13 09:52:35 PM  
What year is that cop's bike....1870?
 
2013-11-13 10:01:19 PM  
Long time ago, I saw a Mustang 5.0 cruiser go off the line against a late 80's Vette.

If you don't want them to get in trouble then don't post a public video you farking moron

Cops should stick to racing to Vegas and back on their night shifts, which used to be a way LASD killed time back in the day.

I won't nark on my source, of course.

Dumb comp commited the one unforgivable sin.

... he got caught on video.
 
2013-11-13 10:11:15 PM  
This is only one incident. GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW OFTEN POLICE DO THIS ON A REGULAR BASIS. MY LAW ABIDING CHILDREN DRIVE ON THESE ROADS. THIS IS SCARY.
 
2013-11-13 10:18:06 PM  
Heck of a drag race there, when cars are passing you.

Cop seemed to have a sense of humor, or at least enjoy interacting with the civilians who were paying his salary. Here's to whatever's next for him.

Last I checked, non military cops were still civilians.

I got two for you.  My dad was out tooling around in his bro's sleeper car, when a cop in a patrol car pulled along side and wanted to race.  Dad assumed the cop would pull the same crap that your undercover pulled and told the cop he would only race him if he could hold his badge.  The cop agreed and off they went.  This was back in the 60's when patrol cars weren't much for speed, and my uncle's sleeper never lost.  After dad left the cop behind, he headed over to the police station and turned the cop in.  The officer tried denying it, but hard to argue how my dad had his badge.

The second one happened several years ago.  A buddy was out with his son in a souped up Camaro, when a cop pulled along side and gestured a race.  They raced, the cop pulled him over, cop recited every possible charge he could be facing if caught racing again and left without a single ticket.  The buddy said they got well over 100mph.  I still cannot believe he trusted a cop like that and got away with it.

Goddammit! Yes, some cops are completely psychotic about their jobs and lives, however it's no different a ratio of psychos to the public. No tires squealed, a ridiculous speed wasn't reached, and it was obvious they were just having some friendly banter because they BOTH knew they really couldn't twist the handle until it screamed.

I support this policeman, because he's cool, and we need more of them instead of drumming them out of departments like a bunch of farking morons biting our noses to spite our collective face. Hell, you know what else? That policeman also made sure the guy on the really really fast motorcycle didn't act like an asshole by purposely losing the races. 

Think about the big picture.

What a dick move on your dad's part. Obviously the cop proved that he didn't intend to ticket your dad, right? Then your dad got him fired anyway?

Dick move.

See. Cops can get fired.

For not being a dick to others.

If he had shot an unarmed homeless guy, they would have had his back though.

From what I hear about the cops in that area and knowing my dad, it's a coin toss on who's the dick on any given day.  They were meant for each other.

This.  As much as I'm usually on board for bashing cops for the stupid and illegal things they often do, this was pretty harmless.  It didn't really seem like either of them ever even broke the speed limit.  Hope he gets his job back.

Yeah, I suppose the cop deserved it anyway, giving away his badge like that. That's just stupid.

Actual definitions disagree with you.  But then again, I'm just a pedant and word definitions change so let's just call everyone clowns.
