Re: Dallas police officer?!!

  • Yikes! That's so sad!

  • I understand that there are laws and police officers have procedures they have to follow but common sense was really needed here, on both sides. Moat's should have realized that the officer wasn't going to give in and gave the info the police officer wanted faster instead of arguing with him. He probably would have seen his MIL before she passed if he would have cooperated. Even though, it was insanely insensitive for that police officer to not let him see his MIL beforehand.

    What do you think will happen to that police officer now?

    I think he was hoping that he would just give him a ticket instead of having to pull all of the information and take more time. There's no excuse on the police officer's end.

    His own police department can't even defend his actions. It really makes me sick to think about it...

  • They said that the police officer didn't do anything wrong by the book. It's the police officer's digression that they are beside themselves about. Which I am too (of course).

    The officer would have needed SOME type of info to write the ticket. They can't just write it without something, usually (each dept. is defferent).

  • I get that he needed info to write the ticket, but most humane normal people would've let him go the minute he said my MIL is dying (which is one of the first things he said) and if the cop still wanted to be an a-hole and give a ticket then I would think most people would've let him go be with his mother and then gather the information from him later.

    I think it bothers me b/c a lot of people in my the town I grew up in became police officers particularly to exert their authority over others. My first ticket was by a similar guy and it wasn't really justified and then he lied about his reasoning to my mom when he ran into later that week. People like that drive me nuts and this was the most clear case of wanting to exert authority that I've ever seen and it drives me batty :-

  • TOTALLY agree!!!

    I've gotten pulled over a couple of times in my life. I use to do the whole of "I'm sorry Officer was I doing something wrong" *tear* thing, which got me out of probably 1 ticket?! But, after learning all the things DH told me during his college criminal justice classes and his police academy training, I've learned to let police be authoritative and give me a ticket if I deserve it. Of course there are time when you know you were in the right and you want to fight it, but that's what court is for, I guess. It usually goes ALOT smoother and they usually let you off easier and faster. It's for your safety and the people around you. Sometimes in this case unfortantly, it cost him the chance to say good bye to his MIL.

    On to your story MrsJaay, that's just sad that the people you grew up with think that they have to "boss" people around to feel superior. Which is probably very simular to this police officers problem is. Who ever hired them should be ashamed of themselves. Police officers like that are the ones that are more dangerous than the "criminals".

    We need police officers that care about people and want to "serve and protect" everyone equally. Sadly, it's hard to find that and people get hired for the wrong reasons alot of the time. Which is exactly what DH is writting about in his last Criminal Justice paper!! Hummm....well really close anyways. It's about correct placement for employees and moving them around to places where they would be more productive as needed. Pretty interesting I think.

    Wow- is this long enough?!?!?! Jeeezz!!

  • I didn't know what you guys were talking about until I googled "Dallas police officer." Here's a great article that has excerpts from the actual confrontation with the officer.

    It is all extremely shocking...

  • Wow!! Thanks Katie!! That article had some interesting info about that young man!

    I have a feeling that Mrs. Moats is right about the pulling out the gun comments. If he's lying about his "traffic pursuits"!

    That Chief is great when they asked about how do you train your officers in this situation: "I don't know how you train for these circumstances, other than to hire people with common sense and good people skills" lol!!

    It said that the video will be brought into the police academy's training curriculum, ha! They really shouldn't need a class on common sense!! Still good for them as a reminder that just because they are police officers doesn't mean that they can treat other people like dogs.

    Ah, drama, drama, drama. I think I learned my lesson!

  • Ummm...that video is a bit different than the edited one I saw earlier. It's amazing how the media can make villians out of someone just doing their job. I'm sorry if you disagree with me but Moats would have gotten alot better response if he would have calmed down and listened to his authority instead of mouthing off and giving him attitude.

    ***Still agree that the man should have seen his MIL before the ticket***

    But the officer wasn't given a chance Moats was almost attacking him verbally. IMO

    Flame away!

  • That is absolutely horrible. I secretly hope the woman haunts the officer for not letting her see her daddy before she died Crying
  • I was almost tempted to post something about this last week, but then I didn't. I saw this story on my way to work last week and it gave me cold chills and I admit even made me teary eyed. This story is just awful and ridiculous. That police officer was just being a cocky mother __ like cops usually are. Clearly when Moats is talking you can tell he's just in shock that this cop isn't letting him go up to see his mother in law for her last moments. THEN when the nurses come out TWO TIMES! to say she's been coding it's just ridiculous. That cop should be fired and never be allowed to have a job ever again. That moment that Moats missed when rushing to the hospital and running the red light (with his emergency flashers on which is the correct way to do it, guess the cop didn't note that, dumb ass) to be with his mother in law during her last few moments are gone FOREVER. I feel for him for sure.

    The daughter got to see her mother, it was the son in law that didn't get to see his MIL. It had nothing to do with anyone's Dad?!
