This probably doesn't deserve its own thread but damn, this made me so angry.
North Carolina cop in Charleston, SC driving slow in the left lane, gets passed, then passes the motorist in the right lane and immediately brake checks him.
Lol what a dick.
Unrelated but I had a coworker that swore passing a police officer on the road regardless of speed was against the law. She also thought the house she bought in 2007 went up in value after the market went to shit.
I saw 2 or 3 videos from just the last day of cops beating/roughing people up also. Sad everyday it is endless storied like this....anyways about this one I saw
"After the crash, Walton says the deputy, driving car No. 145 that was marked as a K-9 unit, did not pull over, so Walton called 911. Walton says North Charleston Police responded and cited the deputy for being at fault. The officer was not ticketed."
Kind of a petty game by the cop. Then they talk about civilians getting pissed on the road.
Cops are by far the most insecure people in the world.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
The guy deserved it for shooting video with his phone in portrait rather than landscape.

onslowdepcrash.gif An Onslow County Sheriff's deputy has been fired after video surfaced online of a traffic accident in South Carolina. Full story...
Law enforcement sources in South Carolina tell WWAY they have had frequent encounters with Walton, who they say often drives around recording video of law enforcement officers trying to catch them in bad situations.
"The video is not the pieces," Culpepper said. "It doesn't show everything that took place."
Because police officers don't sit in areas with radar guns trying to catch people going to work in bad situations. He could have shown the officer naked pictures of the officers wife on his phone, there's no acceptable reason to deliberately cause an accident (and then drive off) on a highway.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
This is what our forefathers had in mind when they created the first amendment. Unfortunately our press has failed us.
also from the article:
Culpepper told WWAY the driver of the other vehicle, Chad Walton, baited him into the incident.
"I fell for it hook, line and sinker," Culpepper told WWAY by phone Wednesday.
I don't get what was happening here. I guess I see that the guy was filming because the sheriff wouldn't let him pass although it doesn't say exactly how fast they were going in the first place. But why did he keep filming after he was able to pass the traffic? Does he just ride around filming as he drives normally? Isn't there some law against that?
Not saying the cop wasn't a dick for stopping short on him but the dude filming seems like just as much of a dick.
Not a jack ass. I am a 4 star poster on RCMB - spartanfan48413
How is he a dick? He's filming another car who is driving poorly, and isn't bothering the person with his filming.
I did think it was strange to continue to film once he passed the cop car and was on his way, but he probably noticed the cop putting his pedal to the metal and assumed he would get in front and stop up traffic again.
He said the cop break checked him before and he could see him cursing and yelling in the mirror at the guy so he took out his phone and started recording it as the cop then paced the car next to him on a 2 lane portion of the highway so he couldn't pass either of them
Good. He was an idiot. Probably still is.

oh I missed that.
Thread bump for this...I wonder where else this is happening.
Hanners blew the whistle on the department’s tactics and was eventually fired for refusing to comply and keep quiet. He says that each officer was required to make 100 contacts each month, which included tickets, arrests, field interviews, and warnings. This equates to 72,000 contacts a year in a 50,000 person town. His claims are backed up by audio recordings of his superiors he made. The Auburn police department declined requests to be interviewed for this story.
“There are not that many speeders, there are not that many people running red lights to get those numbers, so what [the police] do is they lower their standards,” says Hanners. That led to the department encouraging officers to arrest people that Hanners “didn’t feel like had broken the law.”
Auburn, Alabama is home to sprawling plains, Auburn University, and a troubling police force. After the arrival of a new police chief in 2010, the department

It happens basically everywhere but not always in this manner. I know with some in MD they will get in trouble if they wrote 50 tickets last month and only write 20 this month they will end up being singled out and told they better write more or else
This type of stuff is so pathetic. Sad how some in charge of law enforcement focus only on revenue thereby creating an overzealous police force looking for any little thing to charge.
