A Seminole County Deputy pulls over an Orlando PD unit for doing 80 in a 45, and the OPD unit gives him attitude. The bootlickers think that the Deputy was wrong:

So if I am speeding, the cops should call my boss instead of writing me a traffic ticket? If not, why not? Now apply it to this case. Why are they different? How is this cop speeding on his way to work any different than anyone else doing the same?

In this case, the OPD officer was charged with resisting an officer, reckless driving and fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer (lights and siren activated), according to the arrest report from June 9. Bond is set at $9,000. He is also reassigned, pending investigation.

There so fucking special.

A dumbass cop that is part of the problem.
And he too stupid to see it or why he is part of the problem.

    The fuckwadd thinks he is of the ruling class and he can do anything you wants, fuck us very much if we don’t like it.

“So if I am speeding, the cops should call my boss instead of writing me a traffic ticket? If not, why not? Now apply it to this case. Why are they different? How is this cop speeding on his way to work any different than anyone else doing the same?”

First off, I have ZERO issues with how this deputy handled that asshole OPD member, nor do I have a problem with the fact that this ended in criminal charges against him. There’s nothing I hate more than someone in a position of responsibility who abuses that authority.

That said, internal discipline, which was an option, is no laughing matter. If sent through the correct channels, namely to that agency’s Professional Standards branch (sometimes called Internal Affairs), depending on the severity or frequency of the offence(s), there are a number of disciplinary actions available that include anything from being docked pay (on top of being financially responsible for whatever fines are levied), to being denied promotion or transfer, all the way up to unpaid suspension or even termination. I’ve even seen criminal charges laid when appropriate.

I realize the optics of having police discipline their own are poor, thanks to the supposed ‘thin blue line’/officer code of silence (which is actually a crock of shit to a certain extent, to be honest). I won’t say that it never happens where cops who fuck up get a slap on the pee pee behind closed doors and nothing more. I’ve seen that happen a few times. But I can tell you I’ve seen a hell of a lot more cases of guys fucking up on the job and getting absolutely hammered by PSB and/or the brass because they do not want to deal with the fallout of not taking police misconduct seriously, or in many cases, because the brass actually do want to clean up their departments by discouraging shitty behavior and, if necessary, getting rid of cops who have gone bad or shouldn’t be there to begin with.

    It’s no different than the internal discipline of most jobs that issue company cars. Get caught doing 80 in a 45 in any company car and expect to be deprived of that car and perhaps terminated. That is not a reason for the police to be above the law.
    As far as cops getting a slap on the wrist? I did a story back in 2012 about how Miami cops were driving at over 100 miles per hour on I-95, and one got caught. The cop who caught them was harassed out of a job.
    Sorry, but cops get away with this stuff far too often.

      “It’s no different than the internal discipline of most jobs that issue company cars. Get caught doing 80 in a 45 in any company car and expect to be deprived of that car and perhaps terminated. That is not a reason for the police to be above the law.”

      I think you misunderstand. I am not advocating in any way for police to be above the law. Quite the contrary, in fact. I don’t think we go far enough when it comes to handling police misconduct. For that, I blame the police unions, but that’s a different kettle of fish.

      No, I agree. They do get away with this crap quite a bit, but it’s down to individual folks, whether they carry a badge or not, to draw the line on what they’re willing to tolerate and actually do something about it. All I’m saying is that the internal disciplinary actions actually do work.

      Just because you don’t always get to see the ass ripping, doesn’t mean it ain’t happening. The universe always takes out its garbage.

        Out West · June 16, 2023 at 6:06 am

        “The universe always takes out its garbage.” BS. I’ve had interactions with cops in my adult life (40+ years) four times. Every time the cops, all separate locals, acted illegally and unconstitutionally. One of them I was able to get fired. That’s not random, that’s the norm. Bad cops aren’t a bug in the system, they’re a feature.

          JL · June 16, 2023 at 8:30 am

          “One of them I was able to get fired.”

          Assuming you’re telling the truth, you just proved my point. The system DOES work and it IS possible to get bad cops tossed out.

          I don’t think anyone, least of all myself are implying bad cops are a ‘bug in the system’. There are far too many who abuse their positions, and if there was one good thing about the scam-demic, it’s that we got to see the bad ones for who they truly are.

          But….you say you’re 40ish and you’ve had 4 presumably adverse dealings with the police. Interesting. I know many people around the same age and older who have had ZERO adverse dealings with police.

          I don’t doubt the police in your area probably have an attitude problem (at minimum), perhaps you should find new hobbies or maybe new friends.

            Divemedic · June 16, 2023 at 8:52 am

            I have had exactly 9 interactions with police over the last 22 years, and 8 of them were not directly related to my job as a paramedic. Some were as a victim of crime, some weren’t. I can’t say that any of them were completely positive. You can read about them here:

              JL · June 16, 2023 at 10:02 am

              Reading through your linked post, I wouldn’t think any of your dealings with the cops were positive. To be fair, most people’s dealings with the police aren’t. But, outside of competency and professionalism – two things everyone has every right to expect and demand of their police – what else did you expect? I mean, you were a paramedic. Aside from those lame PR ‘dog and pony’ shoes, what interactions do people generally have with police or emergency services in general that don’t involve ‘all hell breaking loose’ in someone’s world?

              When I refer to ‘adverse interactions’, I refer to instances where you are the subject of the investigation. I don’t know if this was the case Old West in the 4 instances he referenced (and if it is not, I do apologize). But in my experience, which isn’t insignificant, people who make broad stroke generalizations that ‘all cops suck/are bastards/are corrupt’ while admitting they fucked up or did something to draw their attention in the first place, happen to be royal assholes themselves, have an inherent mean streak, and are probably just as crooked, morally corrupt, and belligerent as the bad cops we admittedly have far too many of are.

                Divemedic · June 16, 2023 at 10:51 am

                That’s why people don’t like cops. You can do your jobs without being a douche.

          JaimeInTexas · June 16, 2023 at 9:13 am

          Is it not reckless driving and subject to arrest?

            Divemedic · June 16, 2023 at 10:47 am

            Fleeing and eluding is a felony.

              JL · June 16, 2023 at 11:08 am

              “That’s why people don’t like cops. You can do your jobs without being a douche.”

              It so happens, I agree. On the other hand, if I’m dealing with you for a lawful reason and you act like a prick when I’ve given you no reason to, odd are good that you’re going to get treated like a prick. Same as with anyone else….like, say, getting pulled over for speeding.

There will be internal discipline.
And if the criminal case is pursued, they’ll include a new career choice.
The deputy has discretion in traffic infractions.
He chose correctly in this case.

oldvet50 · June 16, 2023 at 6:35 am

I will acknowledge that there are bad cops out there, and every day, there are more. It is to be expected. What kind of person would be attracted to a job where almost everyone hates you, you could be killed for just performing your duties, and if you DO perform them in a legal and acceptable manner, you could could still go to jail as a result of the outcry of the ‘preferred’ race. Not only does the lowly patrolman have to worry about dealing with the ‘public’, he also should be concerned that his superiors will gladly throw him under the bus to prevent their own career from being jeopardized for carrying out their own orders. When I was young, the saying was, “next time you need help, call a hippy” – and that was long before they looked like the para-military troops most police now resemble. The comments I read above indicates why there are no viable police candidates and some communities are actually hiring non-citizens to fill the void – that, to me, is a much bigger problem than a cop speeding in his cruiser.

    Chris Mallory · June 16, 2023 at 8:44 am

    Only the lowest of scum would take a job in “law enforcement”. These people are just barely above the level of child molesters and rapists.

      Divemedic · June 16, 2023 at 8:57 am

      I am not ready to go that far. I think that many people who are drawn to police work do so for good reasons. They are then captured by the lust for power.

        Aesop · June 16, 2023 at 1:43 pm

        It would be healthy if LEOs, like professors, had to take a mandatory sabbatical every 7th year: turn in the guns, badge, and ID, and revert to life as a normal citizen for 12 whole months, with an average job, and no special perks whatsoever other than those to which any ordinary citizen is entitled. No exceptions.

        It should include a mandatory stint of jury duty on at least one complete trial, in a neighboring jurisdiction, from which they could not be peremptorily excused for any challenge not for articulable cause (i.e. they’ve worked with one of the arresting officers, arrested the defendant themselves previously, etc.).

        If it works out, expand the idea to every public employee, from dog catchers up to US senators.
        That would mean US senators would have to sit out the next 5 years before they could run again, which wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.

          Cops should be required to carry a liability bond that they must pay for themselves. No different than doctors, lawyers, tradesman, and other professions. Have shitty credit and/or too many complaints/ violations; and the bond becomes un-affordable. Problem solved. At least the taxpayers wouldn’t be on the hook for these ridiculous multi-million dollar settlements when the pigs “step on their dicks” and get caught.

Well, the incident went national on PJ Media, featured on Steve Green’s “Florida Man Friday” column. Turns out the OPD officer was driving a marked OPD unit and in full uniform. I had assumed he was in his POV.
