Default Stupid F-ing Jackson Cops!

Ok, I was over at my moms house picking up some computer parts for my desktop. On my way home I was traveling down Lansing ave. where it splits into separate one way streets. (for the of you local to Jackson) I was heading into town on Steward street at that put when I rounded the curve I saw a cop had someone pulled of in the right lane (two lanes one way). So I move to the left lane. As I come up to the cop car I was slowing down mostly since I was being blinded by the over head lights. But as I was slowing down I notice the cop is walking down the middle of my lane! No flashlight to show his location, nothing. So I slow down even more (at this point I'm only doing 15MPH and am 20 yards from the cop car). The cop moves over and of all things, OPENS HIS DOOR RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! I literally had to swerve so I did take the cop and the car door out. I mean seriously, how fucking dumb could a cop be? This was at like 11:30 at night, pitch black outside, and he's walking right down the middle of the road.



Sorry for the rant. Just had to vent a little over these stupid ass cops in Jackson. And to think these are to people that are supposed to "Protect" us.

I'm not surprised by this, A cop was killed there a few years ago. They are probably more concerned about being shot at then hit by a car in that area.

IDK. I used to live up the street from where this happened and I've got to say. There are worse neighbor hoods in Jackson than this one.

I am just getting fed up with these cops. Hell, a few years back, I was driving my car down airport road. I was on my way to autozone to pick up a few exhaust clamps to fix my exhaust. I didn't get 3 blocks of the exit ramp of the freeway and I got pulled over and bitched at about my exhaust being loud. Which I understand he was doing his job by pulling me over. But when I told him I was going to AZ to get parts to fix it he just became a complete asshat and wanted to give me a ticket. I told him to follow me and watch I'll go into AZ right up on top of the hill.

Anymore I wish I lived up north again. An hour from anything. Do well in excess of the speed limit down a back country road with a cop going the other way and they don't even care.

Let me get this straight.....you almost run a cop over and it's HIS fault? That's why the red & blue lights are on to WARN oncoming driver's that there is an EMERGENCY vehicle in the roadway.

I would have pulled you over and beat your ass. Then when your mom showed up to complain I would have beat her ass too.

Let me figure this one out, two lane road, cop with pulled over car in one lane. Lights and such, cop walking in the 2nd lane in oncoming traffic? You know what, once the cop pulled his ass out from under my truck a couple hundred feet down the road, I would take that ass whoopin. Just because a cop turns the lights on doesn't mean he can turn his common sense off. No one can see with those fuckin lights in their eyes, and with gawkers paying attention to the cop car and the car pulled over to see if it's their (neighbor,mom,neighbors mom, mom's neighbor, ect.) a little common sense would have to be used to avoid getting your ass run down. Sounds to me like someone wasn't paying attention.

Try learning the law once. They even publish it online. Unfortunately, they don't publish laws in comic books. If they did, half the fuckers on this site might actually know some laws.

I see him all the time, he locked my sisters car "for" her with the keys in it once.

He also has gotten jumped a few times, the suit didn't help him.

I'm not trying to fight about it, I am just saying that it would be easy to get run down, and common sense should have kicked in and self preservation should have become important in this situation.

There's no reason to get bitchy about it, I didn't attack you and say "your a fucking idiot and not bright enough to stay out of the road" I said that in this situation a little common sense would have to be used to avoid getting your ass run down. No need to make random verbal attacks.

And I'm saying that every single cop who has EVER made a traffic stop or worked a wreck or directed traffic is FULLY aware of the dangers of said activities. And guess what? Every year cops are killed all over this country and the world by drivers who didn't see them. Visit the national law enforcement memorial in Washington DC. There's lots of dead cops names on the wall who were killed by drivers who didn't see them. One of them a damned good friend of mine who left behind a family I still care for to this day. He was killed almost 20 years ago.
