True Story.   I called 911 last night to ask them to send someone to arrest a sheriff's deputy.  Jackass was doing 80 down a gravel road and blew threw a blind intersection without even letting off the gas and nearly ran over my 3 kids out for a bike ride.  No lights, no siren.  Missed them by inches.  I raised enough of a fuss insisting that there was a criminal escaping and needed someone to arrest him that the dispatcher finally had the sheriff call me.  Sheriff at least sounded unamused by his deputy's behavior.  We'll see what happens but I kept asking the 911 operator how severe a crime has to be before they would dispatch someone since I'm pretty sure this would have been vehicular homicide.

Sorry to say, but had that occurred, you would have gotten a bill for the damage to the leo's vehicle. And then you would be arrested for filing a false police report. I would also take the precaution of checking your vehicle for planted drugs or other controlled substances.

Strongly suggest you get a lawyer, not to file suit against the Sheriff's office, but to have an someone on backup, in case the local Sheriff or his buddies try to give you problems. I really hope they don't, but if the cops near you are anything like the deputies where I live, I would immediately get professional support, just in case.

The difference here is this is a small rural community.  The sheriff is elected.  And not in some big city way either.  There's no money or anything involved.  So the sheriffs in those kinds of towns tend to be responsive to their constituents.  We are on an acreage on a gravel road a mile off the pavement.  Typically these are narrow and tricky and the speed limit is 45 for all such roads.  In this case 45 is stretching it as there are several small tricky hills, one of which is the corner right by my house which ends up being a blind intersection because from all 4 directions you go down into a strange little dip.  So the kids took off out of the yard.  It's about 100 yards to that intersection then they generall turn and the road becomes untraveled and flat quickly they make sure nobody is coming first.  From the top of the hill at the end of the driveway you can see a mile in each direction so nope nobody coming.  They took off and as soon as they were over that little hill and before they got to the corner to turn this idiot can be seen coming with a rooster tail of dust from a mile away.  But it was windy and the kids were out of voice range and there would be no way they would see this car coming and no way he would see them unless he reduced his speed to a normal rate of speed and came to the intersection at a normal rate of speed.  So he hits the top of the hill at 80 or so 100 yards before the intersection.  He must have seen them last minute when he went over the hill but in order to not crash himself there's no way he would be able to hit the brakes or swerve.  The upcoming intersection is clearly there.  He knows it's there and it is blind for 100 yards prior to it in every direction.  He just chose to hit that blind zone at 80 on gravel on what amounts to a one lane dirt road with a 4 way uncontrolled intersection that just happened to have 3 kids right there.  I normally do not let them ride even that 100 yards by themselves (oldest is 17...I'm paranoid) but someone had come in my yard and I was talking to them and didn't notice until too late they had taken off on the bike ride without me and then virtually the second I saw them disappear over the hill turned my head and saw that dust storm coming.

Luckily the reason for my distraction is 3 guys drove in my yard.  They store stuff in my shed.  All 3 widely respected pillars of the community who saw it all happen the same as me.  The challenge here and probably everywhere but here more than most is deputies don't get paid squat.  So sometimes the young ones especially are sketchy at best in quality.  There is little real crime or any form of career advancement really.  Kind of like finding good science teachers.  It just doesn't pay enough to attract quality applicants.  So the ones you get are the type A bully types but worse the ones not good enough to be cops in a bigger city/county.

I will say the dispatcher informed me he had dispatched said deputy to an emergency so there was a real emergency somewhere.  Down my road?  I don't know, maybe a 'short cut' since it doesn't really go anywhere.  But why no lights/siren?  Do they think they will wear it out?  What's the deal?  I see that all the time.  A cop will suddenly take off like crazy clearly on the way to somewhere for a reason and just not flip on the lights.  Do they use gas or something?  Do old ladies call and complain about the sirens?  What is it?

This just in: many cops are, according to my wife a bunch of "Macho Shiatheads". This from a gal whose brother in law ran background checks on everyone in her family before he married my sister in law. Also, he came home one day, found his wife in bed with another cop. No word on whether she was in to leather or not. He's retired now, but still a shiathead.

I am gonna have to disagree with that statement. I have been screamed at by 2 officers, been told by a Police Chief to "settle my own problems" with a thief who stole my stuff (I tracked him down, got evidence, and wanted the police to do their jobs...), Had a officer lie in court about a traffic violation, and several other minor affronts that didn't need to happen.

In fact, I claim only 1 instance of interacting with the police that was positive. I am sure that officer was tossed out of the force for that kind of behavior, as it never happened again.

You don't know me, but it is a lame troll. I have had comparable experiences to you.

I first thought it was about the cop choking some college kid already in trouble with his department. No, it is another cop already in trouble with his department putting a choke hold on an auto repo man.

But can we just stop the cop hate against the few bad apples anyway?

Not so face there.  We'll have to have a 12 month investigation.  The union reps will need to be called in.  He'll need a chance to go to therapy and get medication and go through a series of evaluations  (all while collecting pay).  In the end he'll get a 100% worker's comp deal for life.

18 months later, he'll be hired buy another small town somewhere and be back on the streets

If by "a few" you mean hundreds, then you are correct.  Every day that I open up my facebook newspage, I see at least one account of some cop mistreating a citizen.  Then the cop gets a two week vacation by his supervisor and then he is back on the job to mistreat another citizen.  These people need to be fired and their ability to possess a weapon in the line of duty permanently rescinded as well as whoever protects these "bad apples" also needs to be terminated and not retired with benefits either.  Only by getting rid of the miscreants and bullies will we citizens again feel that the policeman is our friend.  I am just afraid that eventually someone is going to put up a website where all these bullies and killers and thieves are identified for vigilantes to go after and punish as if their bosses will not do it, then eventually a vigilante group will and the results will not be pleasant!

Usually the ones that do that have cars that come equipped with "code 3" cameras.  Once they hit the lights and siren, the camera comes on and records what happens including speed, time etc etc. so when they get a call if they are not told explicitly to respond code 3 lights and sirens, they keep em off and they can speed, drive recklessly and do all sorts of things that normally would get them suspended or fired. No recording, no proof.
