+Wadcutter Posted May 7, 2008 Share Posted May 7, 2008 (edited) Perhaps you misunderstood my post or you just are looking to argue. So what was your point anyway? This thread is about LEOs caching and LEOs discussing caching not some lame story about getting stopped by a LEO. What was your motivation for posting your horrendous ordeal to this thread?We have no idea what happened on your stop other than your side so we have to take you at your word. However, there's always 2 sides. I was just pointing out what LEOs have to go thru everyday from the "experts" who can't wait to tell a LEO where they screwed up even tho most of the time what the "expert" recommends would probably violate some law or violate policy. But by golly those "experts" know because they've seen it on TV. What else these "experts" don't realize that the roadside is not the place to argue point of law. That's what judges get paid to do. There's a whole lot more going on in the big world than some "expert" knows. Case in point, a few years ago we had a huge industrial explosion, killing 5, and releasing a huge vapor cloud of vinyl chloride over several miles. We went around the neighborhood telling people to evacuate and also closing roads. You would not believe the number of people who refused to leave or said we didn't have the authority to make them leave nor close the roads. We were just trying to keep them alive. They didn't have a clue what vinyl chloride vapors could do to them. But by golly, they knew their rights, right up until they realized 5 people were already dead and their rights weren't really the issue, keeping alive was the issue. But they knew their rights! Proved one thing tho, there's a real difference between being smart and being intelligent. They might have been intelligent enough to know their rights but they weren't smart enough to know to survive. Edited May 7, 2008 by Wadcutter Quote Link to comment
