A Little Cop Humor. . .
"The handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after
you wear them awhile."
"If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."
"So, you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"
"Yes sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?"
"Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."
"The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or dog?"
"Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."
"Life's tough, it's tougher if you're stupid."
"No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want."
"Just how big were those two beers?"
"In God we trust, all others are suspects."

Caught for speeding
The cop got out of his car and the kid, that was stopped for speeding, rolled down his window.
"I've been waiting for you all day," the cop said.
The guy replied, "Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could."
When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.
Stuck under a bridge
A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. A sign comes up that reads "low bridge ahead." Before he knows it the bridge is
right ahead of him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles.
Finally, a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks around to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, "Got stuck, huh?"
The truck driver says, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of gas."
The drunken wino was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter.
A cop pulled up and said, "I've got to take you in, sir. You're obviously
The wasted wino asked, "Ociffer, are ya absolutely sure I'm drunk?"
"Yeah, buddy, I'm sure," said the copper. "Let's go."
Obviously relieved, the wino said "That's a relief - I thought I was a cripple."
I'm going to a lecture
The man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and walked home. As he was walking unsteadily along, he was
stopped by a policeman.
"What are you doing out here at 2 A.M.?" said the officer.
"I'm going to a lecture." the man said.
"And who is going to give a lecture at this hour?" the cop asked.
"My wife," said the man.
FOR SAFETY SAKE!
Don't ride in a car: they cause 20% of all fatal accidents
Don't stay at home: 17% of accidents occur in the home
Don't walk on sidewalks:14% of all accidents happen to pedestrians
Don't fly or travel by air or water:16% of all accidents happen by
Only .001 % of deaths occur in worship services in church, and these
were all related to previous physical disorders. Hence the safest place for
you (the stat's prove it) at any time is church. Bible study is safe to the
percentage of deaths is even less there.
SO GO TO CHURCH IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!
Can't vouch for the stats but I thought it was cute.
Thanks, Harry! The stats are probably pretty

Hey brothers and sisters!
A brother officer gave me this list the other day and I thought I would
share some of it with you. As the subject indicates, the title is "You might
have been in law enforcement too long if...."
have the bladder capacity of five people.
idea of a good time is an armed robbery at shift change.
call for a criminal background check on anyone who seems remotely friendly
think everyone is automatically lying unless they can prove it to you.
dismemberment over a meal seems perfectly normal.
believe in aerial spraying of Prozac.
believe that "shallow gene pool" is sufficient grounds for arrest.
believe the government should require background checks and permits prior
believe that unspeakable evil will befall you if anyone says, "Boy, it's
really quiet tonight."
diet consists of food that has gone through more processing than a computer
can actually track.
believe chocolate is a food group.
believe that "too stupid to live" is a valid verdict.
think caffeine should be available in I.V. form.
favorite hallucinogen is exhaustion.
you mention "vegetables" you're not referring to the food group.
occurs to you one night that you really have entered "The Twilight Zone."
find out a lot about paranoia just by following people around.
are told to deliver a human body part to the lab and you find youself talking
to it in the car.
are the only person introduced by profession at a social gathering.
walk into places and people think it highly comical to seize a coworker and
shout, "They've come to get you, Frank!"
shout, "I didn't do it!" when you walk into a room in uniform and they think
they are being hysterically funny AND original.
After having been in the business for 26 years, even though I found
this funny, I saw several things I could relate to in this list. I realized
once again what a lonely business this was and how very hopeless it felt
sometimes before I knew Jesus. PTL!
Your brother in Christ,
Officer Allan sends this:
Heh heh, I think I can agree with some of Murphy's infinite insights
into law enforcement as well. What do you guys think of some these -- sounds
eerily familiar huh?
Murphy's Laws For Law Enforcement ~
1. 'Bullet Proof' vests aren't.
2. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. They also punch, kick
and choke harder too.
3. The speed at which you respond to a fight call is inversely proportional
to how long you've been a cop.
4. Tear gas works on cops too, and regardless of wind direction, will
always blow back in your face.
5. High speed chases will always proceed from an area of light traffic
to an area of extremely heavy traffic.
6. If you know someone who tortures animals and wets the bed, he is
either a serial killer or he works for Internal Affairs.
7. Placing a gun back in a shoulder holster with your finger on the
trigger will cause you to walk with a limp.
8. Flash suppressors don't really.
9. If you have `cleared´ all the rooms and met no resistance, you
and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.
10. If a cop swings a baton in a fight, he will hit other cops more
often than he will hit the bad guys he swings at.
11. Domestic arguments will always migrate from an area of few available
weapons (living room), to an area with many available weapon. (kitchen).
12. If you have just punched out a handcuffed prisoner for spitting
at you, you are about to become a star on `Eyewitness News´.
13. Bullets work on veteran cops too. They also work on weight lifters,
martial arts experts, department marksman, Vice cops, S.W.A.T. jocks, and
others who consider themselves immortal.
14. When a civilian sees a blue light approaching at a high rate of speed, he will always pull into the lane the cop needs to use.
15. If you drive your patrol car to the geometric center of the Gobi
Desert, within five minutes some dumb civilian will pull along side you and
ask for directions.
16. You can never drive slow enough to please the citizens who don't
need a cop, and you can never drive fast enough to please the ones who do.
17. Any suspect with a rifle is a better shot than any cop with a pistol.
18. From behind you, the bad guys can see your night sights as well
as you can.
19. On any call, there will always be more `bad guys´ than there
are good guys, and the farther away your back-up, the more there will be.
20. The longer you've been a cop, the shorter your flashlight and your
21. Whatever you are about to do, if there is a good chance it will
get you killed, you probably shouldn't do it.
22. You should never do a shotgun search of a dark warehouse with a
cop whose nickname is "Boomer".
23. The better you do your job, the more likely you are to be shot,
injured, complained on, sued, investigated, or subpoenaed on your day off.
24. If a large group of drunk bikers is "holed-up" in a house, the
Department will send one officer in a beat car. If there is one biker "holed-up"
in a house, they will send the entire S.W.A.T. Team.
OUT OF JAIL - STAY OUT OF JAIL?
A convict broke out of jail in Washington D.C., and a few days later
accompanied his girlfriend to her trial for robbery. At lunch, he went out
for a sandwich. She needed to talk to him, and thus had him paged. Police
officers recognized his name and arrested him as he returned to the courthouse
in a car he had stolen over the lunch hour.

A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that there was a car phone in it. The policeman taking the report called the phone and told the guy that answered that he had read the ad in the newspaper and wanted to buy the car. They arranged to meet, and the thief was arrested.
A true story out of San Francisco:
A man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch and wrote "this iz a stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag." While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began to worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the teller window.
So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street to Wells Fargo. After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the Wells Fargo teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that he was not the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not accept his stickup note because it was written on a Bank of America deposit slip and that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo deposit slip or go back to Bank of America.
Looking somewhat defeated, the man said "OK" and left. The Wells Fargo teller then called the police who arrested the man a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank of America.
Drug Possession Defendant Christopher Jansen, on trial in March in Pontiac, Michigan, said he had been searched without a warrant. The prosecutor said the officer didn't need a warrant because a "bulge" in Christopher's jacket could have been a gun. Nonsense, said Christopher, who happened to be wearing the same jacket that day in court. He handed it over so the judge could see it. The judge discovered a packet of cocaine in the pocket and laughed so hard he required a five minute recess to compose himself.
Dennis Newton was on trial for the armed robbery of a convenience store in a district court when he fired his lawyer. Assistant district attorney Larry Jones said Newton, 47, was doing a fair job of defending himself until the store manager testified that Newton was the robber. Newton jumped up, accused the woman of lying and then said, "I should of blown your (expletive) head off." The defendant paused, then quickly added, "if I'd been the one that was there." The jury took 20 minutes to convict Newton and recommended a 30 year sentence.
R.C. Gaitlan, 21 walked up to two patrol officers who were showing their squad car computer equipment to children in a Detroit neighborhood. When he asked how the system worked, the officer asked him for identification. Gaitlan gave them his drivers license, they entered it into the computer, and moments later they arrested Gaitlan because information on the screen showed Gaitlan was wanted for a two year old armed robbery in St. Louis, Missouri.
A Guy walked into a little corner store with a shot gun and demanded all the cash from the cash drawer. After the cashier put the cash in a bag, the robber saw a bottle of scotch that he wanted behind the counter on the shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but he refused and said "Because I don't believe you are over 21." The robber said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him because he didn't believe him. At this point the robber took his drivers license out of his wallet and gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it over, and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and he put the scotch in the bag. The robber then ran from the store with his loot. The cashier promptly called the police and gave the name and address of the robber that he got off the license. They arrested the robber two hours later.
A man having purchased a case of very rare, very expensive cigars insured them against fire among other things. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of cigars and without having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company.
In his claim, the man stated the cigars were lost "in a series of small fires". The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. The man sued.... and won. In delivering the ruling the judge agreeing that the claim was frivolous, stated nevertheless that the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire", and was obligated to pay the claim.
Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process the insurance
company accepted the ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars
he lost in "the fires." After the man cashed the check, however, the
company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim
and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the man was
convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and sentenced to
24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine!
Thanks for sending
that through, Allan!
