I have a couple of questions for you mtida 14?

#1 What a academy did you go to?

# 2 Does mtida 14 stand for your badge number at the Mt. Ida Collage Public Safety Department?

If you do work for Mt. Ida why do n't you post some war stories about writing out fire lane violation tickets as you make your rounds in your golf cart with the green light
bar? As some who who has gone to an academy ( the T ), my advice to you Mt. Ida 14 is to stop driving the golf cart and get out and walk. Maybe the exercise will do you good and you can become the first member of the Mt. Ida Public Safety Department to past the PAT.

So on December 26th I was headed do to Connecticut to go visit the in-laws and I see a Connecticut state Trooper not cross between his cruiser and the vehicle he stoped once but twice. I was shocked to see. I took the next exit to stop at Dunkin Dounuts with the wife to get breakfast and in strolls the Trooper and I was like YESSSSSSSSSSSS! I walked right over to the Trooper and was like where did you learn to do a traffic stop. Then he and I got into a 20 minute conversation about it apparently he said thats how he was tought to do it during his academy.
So you work at a liberal arts college in Newton?

And you asked, "where did you learn to do a traffic stop" to a Trooper?

I would have smacked your wife just to knock some sense into her.

If this story is true the trooper deserves an award for not telling the snotty a** kid to go f*** himself.

whut?

Dude, I don't even know what you are talking about here. Maybe the guy had a brain cramp or maybe the guy was trained that way. Either way, you broke an unwritten rule of this forum, and thats shitting on another LEO. Even if you don't feel you weren't insulting the guy, people here do feel that way.
Take it from me, I did it... and I was reamed....thoroughly....without Astroglide.

There is a lot of good information here from guys and gals who have culled it over their careers.
So yeah... quit while you are behind and pay attention to a few of the people who are FT.
You will be a lot happier here and you will learn something.

This guy's "current mood" explains a lot: tired and you can add sorry to it as well! How do you see a Trooper cross between the vehicles twice during a traffic stop. I can only speak for myself when I make a traffic stop: exit; walk up to the vehicle; scan for potential dangers; make contact with occupant(s); explain reason for stop; walk back and while walking back look back towards the vehicle and lookout for traffic coming my way; get back in my car; make checks on computer or call it in; take action; exit; and repeat the above steps; issue paperwork; walk back to car and get in. Most traffic stops last around 10 minutes. This squirrel, must have pulled over to watch the Trooper on the traffic stop to see him walk between the cars twice (either initial contact and back or reapproach and back). In all of my years of driving along the highways (not on duty), I cannot say I've seen a complete traffic stop from start to finish. I do look over to make sure the Trooper/Officer is ok and continue on my way. Most of the time you will see them standing next to the car, walking up to the car, exiting their car, sitting in their car, talking with someone outside the car, or walking back to their car. The vast majority of people look over briefly and fall back into their own little world. Like I stated above, this squirrel must have pulled over and was eating his bag of nuts watching the traffic stop dreaming of the day when he can do the same!

As for telling a Trooper or any Police Officer they are conducting their traffic stop wrong was poor judgement on his part. He only saw a brief moment in time and jumped to a conclusion the Trooper was in the wrong on his approach or reapproach. I can only guess how this conversation started, "When I watch cops...... In the movies cops...... When I watch worlds wildest police chases......", just a guess on my part.

Mtida14, you have a lot to learn in life and using good judgement is just one of those many factors. Here is a small tip for you to use: you were not there on the traffic stop, so you cannot form an opinion as to what took place. Just think about that for a while and STAY SAFE!

Looks like somebody needs a little ProActiv Solution before they critique other Police Officers work habits. Is that a milk moustache or are you workin' on that 70's porn look?

Isn't Mount 'Da staffed by Securitas personnel in Police uniforms?

I would have told you to go pound sand and stuff your face with a donut.
Then the thread would've been how "I saw this Trooper and asked him about his tactics, and he told me to pound sand! Man was he rude!"
