there was something to which you might object, TELL IT TO THE JUDGE.

Which is exactly what I did after a snot-nosed Storm-Trooper wannabe cop gave me a $260 ticket including 3 points for stopping at a stop sign! (yes, you read that right - Stopping at a Stop Sign!) This kid was just pi$$ed that he had to sit in his cruiser in my neighborhood on a Saturday afternoon and watch an intersection most people just rolled through. Told him I would see him in court over this and wished him a nice day. Even the judge rolled his eyes and went 'Really?!' to the cop.
There are just too many cops out there who were pummeled around in high school one too many times and now have a badge and gun. You realize that the training requirements to become a cop in the US are among the lowest in the western world, right? Less than a year in the US; several years in other countries - and we all have seen the undercover investigative documentaries with Steve Guttenberg called 'Police Academy' to see what goes on there! ;-)

Default Ah, Cowardice!

I am a lawyer, and I can tell you with legal certainly, that this newsgroup is for Soaring discussions.
There are many other forums to discuss the issues of the day NOT involving soaring. Please adhere to the rules.
I was on another site (rotorcraft) that was ruined by off subject topics and fools. Please respect one another and the rules that
keep this forum useful for soaring pilots.

Thank you

Ah Sahib, rules are made to be broken. Although the OP acknowledged that it was a post not meant for this forum there were some good responses especially the Chris Rock video. It's good to occasionally stray from the path and discover opinions of others in your community. Rock on with your fine lawyer self.
