Went through one of those DWI checkpoints last night, and my license tag was expired, mostly because I have been out of town and too lazy to get it done when I am home.

Personally, I despise those things, people should be able to go on about their business w/o being stopped for no reason other than Gestapo style checkpoints, but it is what it is and cops have to do what their bosses tell them to do, too.

Anyways, the cop who wrote me the ticket was very polite and professional and did not act like a power hungry dick, and in fact told me he didn't even want to write the ticket for a working man (I use my vehicle for work purposes towing it behind trucks on my job) but that the Dept. had zero tolerance at these type of checkpoints, he even told me that if it got taken care of before the Court date that if I showed the papers to the DA they would drop the charges.

Not all cops, contrary to popular belief, are dickheads out to fuck over as many people as they can.

Luckfully DUI check points in my state are not allowed, but I've been through them a lot. I used to spend a lot of time in Vancouver BC and they were extremely common!

I don't agree with the check points either.

With that I am not one of those cop haters. As a bar owner and having worked in the industry I became friendly (almost out of necessity) with a lot of cops. I also owned a mortgage company for bout 8 years and did home loans for about a dozen local officers. Most of them are great guys,
and like every walk of life there are dicks. One thing that I makes me appreciate their composure is how often they get fucked with. When the work outside by night clubs and bars they get harassed and asked the stupidest questions. Their also in a line of work where they, and rightfully so are looked at and under a microscope.

Matt, I know what you mean, I was born and raised as a cops kid and my brother is one now, and I have many friends that are LEO's, I could have went into lew enforcement myself but knew better than to try with my personality I would have too easily been one of those bad apple cops, these days there are more and more of them, I believe it is simply a sign of the times and a sign of less stringent requirements and background checks, coupled with the "us vs The World" mentality that is usually reinforced when you have ignorant people who are cop haters and love to fuck with them.

I only posted what I did because there is a small segment of people here who despise cops and go out of their way to make their feelings known, and quite honestly I was being a dick myself by even making a deal out of it, just wanted to let them know that not everybody in uniform is as modern day Gestapo.

I am no cop hater katook but I think you nailed why there are so many cop haters. The bad apple cops.  Couple that with all the mobile recording devices and they seem like they are everywhere.  Also consider that Cops tend to take care of their own and in the old days many indiscretions were covered up because not everyone could record what was really going on.  I don't think Cops have an easy job and there really are some great people in blue, but the asshats fuck it up for them.
