Great story with a sad ending..

The video had a sad ending when the newscaster said "and never let it be said that we don't talk about good news on the news" Just seems so pathetic that she even had to make that statement. Cudos to the officer for his action and request to remain anonymous.

Finally pissed off enough to spread the word of Dr. Paul

Not trying to be negative, but I wonder how much the ticket

cost him? Can't imagine $100 was enough to register two cars AND pay a traffic ticket! Kudos to the officer but I'd like to hear it was a written warning vs. a ticket!

Citation

The article used the word citation rather than ticket. I imagine that could easily be a warning rather than a fine.

A citation is another way of

A citation is another way of saying infraction, i.e. a fine.

Thanks! Hope that's the case!

Good cop news works

on so many levels.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

* Because it's so rare. . . like a gem.

* Because it's the goodness of individual cops that shine.

* Because we, too, can be good, helpful, peaceful & thoughtful in the midst of a corrupt violent world. . . even as a cog of a killing machine, we can be good, at times (a la Schindler's List).

This is

my neck of the woods. Cool. Cops in Dallas are jerks. Plano's not so bad though.

skippy

It's encouraging to see we have good people in law enforcement..

Especially when such a large percent in our federal government are bought and paid for criminals.

something to consider.

how many people will he kidnap for "crimes" involving no victim?

if he pulled the guy over for an expired registration sticker he had one of two things in mind:
1) gotta nail someone soon, the boss has been on my ass.
2) dude looks like he may have dope, what can i get him for?

cops are enforcers. their job is suppressing liberty on a daily basis.

i'm glad the guy did a nice thing, but lets not forget the trail of consternation and shattered lives this man will play an integral role in.

Maybe they aren't all corrupt after all?

Edmnd, no doubt there are plenty of dishonest cops that are more criminal than anyone they arrest. But maybe there are still a few out there that truly wish to "protect and serve"?

As far as pulling over the guy in the first place, well, the sticker was expired, and the guy even owned up to it--he took responsibility, didn't make excuses. Apparently, the officer respected that, in addition to feeling compassion. I'm sure most police departments do have unofficial "quotas" they are expected to fill--much more profitable than say, saving lives.

So, yes, I'm sure the officer was pulling the guy over to help keep his job, whether we like that aspect of it or not. But I would much rather have a lot of police officers like this in my community, than the kind that get off on the power trip.

i wasn't saying all cops are

i wasn't saying all cops are necessarily corrupt or dishonest.

they may be doing the best job they can and be entirely honest. but if they take part in suppressing a mans liberty - which they do by ticketing him for spitting on a sidewalk or caging him because he smokes meth- they have become enforcers and the government, the mob.

don't get me wrong, that wasn't about how much i hate cops. i don't. i just have serious issues with the institution and its implications.

good

point

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

So the cop takes our tax & ticket money and redistributes it?

I mean, this is a better situation than most.

But where did the cop get that money? In his paycheck off the last guy he ticketed.

If you want to be a cop, run for sheriff or ask the sheriff if you can be his deputy.

All the others amount to excess government waste.

You make it sound like a bad cop who did a good thing

Maybe he is the Ron Paul of law enforcement..Don't be too hasty to judge this cop.

A kind person...

Thank you.

Ron Paul of law enforcement? There is nothing free market there?

Laws enslave. Laws make slaves.

Last I checked this "law enforcer" wasn't stopping murder from happening at the local abortion clinic.

He pulls people over for traffic violations and expired tags.. he is a revenuer, a tax collector.. randomly praying on his victims. Then he feels guilty one day and decides to give back. What a guy.

Depending on how he feels that day, you might get fined, warned or refunded.

I bet he doesn't give as many refunds as he does fines. What do you think?

Maybe he is the Ron Paul of law enforcement... Ha Ha that is funny but it can not be true.

Maybe he will repent and follow Christ instead.

Thanks for posting

I'm certainly no exception when it comes to pointing out all the bad things cops do in this burgeoning police state, but it's equally as important to recognize when they do good.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

True

There needs to be more incentive for good. There is little now since they are typically awarded for bad behavior. There should be some organization that more formally recognizes officers, sheriffs etc who strictly uphold the constitution. Make something officers want to achieve.

unbelievable

We need more people like this in the world.

Fantastic!!!

Maybe we should have a 'Good Cop/Bad Cop' Forum just to keep track of all these LEO stories. Naming names whenever possible.

Yep,

tis true, cops have good hearts too:)
