It's not bad in NY at all now.

So don't give me that. NYC does not have rogue cops going nuts all over. Yes, it has bad cops, but it also has MORE cops and MORE situations than anywhere, and if you look at the pct of complaints, its very low, lower than almost any other major city and we have less crime. So don't put me as a poster child for that. 2012 NY is not that.

If you want to know, time 1 i was on the beach and we were having a party and the cops said we should leave. I literally said "ok, sorry" and the cop said TOUGH GUY, Huh? threw me up against the car, and when i started complaining (frightened out of my mind) he put a gun up to my head and asked me if i thought i was a tough guy now (Note: i was with like 5 other people, my gf who was crying, and everyone just terrified). He then let me go and i got in the car and didn't say a freaking word for like 2 days.

The other times was when i was in JHS in Brooklyn, this cop would knock us down, throw us into walls from time to time. I personally hope he got hit by a truck and died.

That's horrible man, I'm sorry you had to experince that. It's good to see that you have a mature outlook on the situation.

I don't live in NY but i've heard numerous stories through the media mostly of the un lawful police work in areas such as New York.

Glad to know it's not as bad as i previously had assumed.

More like your uncle was a cop and gave you some old gold looking badge thing and said if you ever get pulled over just give them this, and went about his day laughing at the fact you believe it.

In ref to op, never get nervous because I drive correctly and within the law. I know people who get nervous in the very presence of the police even when they haven't done anything

Don't get me wrong, there are legitimate complaints people have and legitimate bullshit that goes on. But people for some reason like to apply it in totality. When i was a kid, **** it was bad. Being a Puerto Rican growing up in NYC meant you were a criminal suspect.

It's sad because my son is half japanese (good looking kid, ten times better than me) and i'm somewhat happy he doesn't look totally spanish because i think he'll get hassled less in the back of my mind.

Seriously, I call BS too. The media would've been all over these gold cards.

There are cards you show the police and they'll get you out of tickets. Not real crime, nor something ridiculous but out of tickets. **** yeah. Totally real.

The last time I checked speeding was a crime. It certainly is here in the UK and I'm damn sure it would be in the US

I just find it completely inconceivable that these 'get me off speeding ticket cards' even exist. I can't comment on the US but I know for fact that Police Officers in the UK get done for speeding all the time, even on duty.

Its definitely true, or you get a yellow license plate and the cops will never stop you. Unfair but it exists.

If you're not doing anything wrong you shouldn't feel nervous. I just turn up my music and keep it moving.

If I murder someone, Im not gonna pull it out and show them it. Ive gotten pulled over 15+ plus times and I've shown them it and they just say to drive safe and I drive away. Me and both my sisters have never gotten a ticket. Not a big deal.
