"Professional Courtesy" Should it exist?

A friend of mine, a GSP officer, just came by and was outraged. He received a ticket for 80 in a 65 zone. I at him and said it was deserved, he started ranting about "professional courtesy".

What do you all think?

Re: "Professional Courtesy" Should it exist?

I never go more than 5 over... well sometimes I open up a little, but only when its clear. No reason to go much faster... shoulda left earlier, if he was late getting somewhere. I know cops that have gotten tickets, from people in their own district even. Just because hes state police, doesnt mean he should get special privilege... he knows the law. If thats what he thinks, then he would be a hypocrite to pull over a citizen doing 80 in a 65.

If the law doesn't count for everyone, why bother having them at all?

One of them truckless bastards.

I am all about PROFESSIONAL COURTESY....................but some things that people do are not professional! With that being said. It is a line that needs to be crossed with every situation.

Re: "Professional Courtesy" Should it exist?

My dad was a cop for 30yrs. I remember him talking about how professional courtesy had gone out the window. Used to be he would pull a guy over for drunk driving and if he found out he was related to another cop he would call them to come pick him up. I got pulled over a lot for street racing and speeding in general but only ever got one ticket. They would call my dad or tell him when they would see him. But nowadays it just seems most police don't have the respect for other leos that they use to. Hell, most of the ones I've dealt withare all jacked up on roids and have absolutely no communication skills.

Our law makers and those responsible for enforcement love to selectively apply them

And it's no different anywhere else, just varying in levels of selectiveness.
