I try to mouth off to every cop that I come in contact with. It's almost Pavlonian, the way I switch to an anti-government revolutionary as soon as I get pulled over. So when I hear a cop lost his job becuase he abused his authority, I feel that justice is finally being served.
Officer Robert Powell has resigned after he held NFL player, Ryan Moats, outside of a hospital while his mother-in-law was dying inside. Moats passed a red light and ignored the officer's lights and sirens. His mother-in-law did die and the cop is in a lot of trouble now for being such a prick.
The cop probably got pissed when the player ignored the lights and kept driving. I know because I've done the same thing. I drive an extra mile or two when I think a cop is pulling me over for something stupid. They hate that.
I was late for work once and I was being pulled over. My job was only a mile up the road, so I didn't stop. The cop stuck his hands out of his window and started violently gesturing me to pull over. I stuck my hand out of my window and started pointing forward as if to say, "Let's keep going!" I finally pulled in to work. The cop jumped out of his car. And I jumped out of mine. He pointed his gun at me and screamed, "Get in the car!" Whoops.
I didn't get a ticket, but I see how that cop would've went all crazy on the guy. They hate being ignored. Power-hungry bastards.
The cop has apologized and resigned. Good. One less piece of fuzz on the road. story
