Police Can Be Nice!
There's a red light right before my Estate, and I really did not feel like waiting. There was no traffic coming in any direction, so I kinda' slipped through quietly and right into a parking spot. Turning off the ignition, I opened the door and the first thing I saw was a police cruiser parked on the other side of the street.
I walked up to the officer and said, "You got me."
"You know what you did, right?"
"I was gonna' talk to you. Have a good night!"
"Thanks for the break."
He must not know me very well, or I'd still be in the can.
Actually, most cops are decent guys who exercise what they call "prosecutorial discretion" a lot more than we'd like to admit.
The Bethlehem Township police officer featured above, Brian Kirchner, knows all about sparing the rod. He's a school resource officer at Freedom High School.
