I suspect the other officers have a lot more to do with the first officer thinking the Jeep was stolen, than the passenger. You may think she's hot, but that doesn't mean the officer did, nor does it mean he/she is immature enough to call someone else just to look at her.lol. I;m not law enforcement but they either thought something was fishy and used a stupid 5mph impeding traffic law to check it out or saw a hot chick in the passenger side to check out and called their buddys. lol...t.
you need to lighten up. lolThere's quite possibly more to that traffic stop, and ticket than we know. Just as media is excellent at doing, we're only given the view they want to give. Were they actually only 5 under the limit, or was it much more to it? Were they preventing people from passing while doing so? We don't know all the facts, we only know what she said. Did he get a ticket, and if so, was there more to why it was written? .
Don't get me wrong, I'm not assuming she's exaggerating either, because we don't know. I'm just saying that the public is way too quick to form an opinion based on incomplete information. That and nobody seems to fact check anymore, like they did years ago. They just take peoples word for what the "facts" are.

If he/she suspected the Jeep may be stolen, or something just wasn't adding up to him/her, they'll call for another unit to help make sense of it, or to take a felon into custody in a case where it is stolen.
If either of them were being hostile or argumentative, because the reason for stop wasn't acceptable to them, they may call for another officer anticipating a potential threat. It's also possible the additional officers simply stopped to check on the original one, unprompted. It happens all the time, especially in cities where multiple officers from multiple agencies are in close proximity to each other.
Who knows why there were 3 cops there, but it's awful presumptuous to assume it's simply because they want to look at a girl.
I think with the ease of recording ability and spreading using social media, we're discovering there might be MORE than just a "few" rotten apples as a lot of people would like to believe. I have respect for LEO and I would hope that most, if not all, we're here to protect and serve the people. But Im not fooling myself either.However, some of them give the vast majority of good ones a bad name.
Ha ha, roger that. I'm certainly not trying to sound worked up, or anything, because I'm not. Just offering alternative viewpoints.you need to lighten up. lol
Absolutely, it is. Read the first part of post #221 though (link).....Selective enforcement when it comes to motor vehicle laws is absolutely a thing. Speed limit, rolling stops, stereo volume, and Jeep doors to name a few......
And I don't think most people maliciously violates traffic laws. It's generally based on bad intel, socially acceptable tolerances like 5-10 mph over, dark tint, colored lights on the hood/headlights, etc. While understandable, none of those things make a violation any less illegal. It doesn't make the person a bad person, or a bad driver. If anything it's all the more reason for the officer to be selective and issue a warning, because they understand why the person violated the law they did..... It’s garbage, but it’s illegal. So for anyone saying I was “clearly in the wrong”, I was only in that position because of the information I was given by other LEOs. I guess I could have googled it, but I figured the experts in their field would know......
That is not accurate, please share a link to the Washington State law that states that.I said that argument. The Sheriff knew the RCW by heart to counter that argument. He was very clear. The factory doors that were included from the factory are required. It was part of the crash protection rating. Yes, we said the doors are not a structural member. Doesn't matter. The Jeep left the factory with doors, they are required on all Washington State roads, which includes Forest Service roads and beaches.
Most cops have better things to do. I see many Jeeps in Tacoma, Seattle, Naches area with no doors. Still illegal. My job requires a clean driving record. Doors stay on.
