Is it Legal for a Police Officer to pull someone over in order to accuse them of something, so that maybe it might be true and they will admit? I was driving, and a police pulled me over, I knew I did nothing wrong. He comes to the window, asks me for my Licsence and Reg., and asks me if I knew why I got pulled over. I told him NO, may I ask you why? He tells me yes, you were talking on your cellphone, (which I was not) – I answered him back and said, Officer NO I WAS NOT. He told me well sorry I saw you talking on it… anyways after arguing with him enough he just made belive he had a call to go to and said I gotta go, and pacled off. Is this Legal? What do you do in such a situation to prove yourself innocent?February 10, 2011 6:09 am at 6:09 am #738433☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

RB – Let it go. He didn’t do anything illegal. Let’s say you had your gloved hand on your face and he thought it was a phone. Since he thought it was a phone he has the legal right to pull you over. What they usually do in cases like this is -ask you for your phone. They open it and find the last number that was called or called you. Then they look at the time, if it matches the present time minus a few, then they issue a ticket. He didn’t even bother doing that to you.February 10, 2011 7:05 am at 7:05 am #738437☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
You’re lucky. I know someone who almost got a ticket for talking on his cell phone because the police officer saw him scratching his ear. He only got out of it because he didn’t have his cell phone with him and he allowed the cop to search for it!February 10, 2011 11:14 am at 11:14 am #738438eclipseMember
He will try to get you another way to make up for it,file a report for harrassment or discrimination,make sure they fill out the entire complaint form,not just half,so if he does try again “to save face”,YOU WILL BE AHEAD OF THE GAME.
SOME policemen today have proven to be as CORRUPT AND DISHONEST as the civilians.February 10, 2011 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #738439
I don’t think there is a need to be Dan Lkaf Zechus this cop when I know I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I think he was just doing it because maybe I would have been scared to deny it to him, or maybe he took a good guess. I wasn’t doing anything that looked like talking on a phone!February 10, 2011 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #738440AinOhdMilvadoParticipant
It’s always their word against yours, and 99% of the time the judge (if you fight a ticket) will believe THEM!
A few years ago I got a ticket on Ocean Parkway (a real ticket trap, by the way) for going through a red light. The truth was that it was just turning to yellow as I went through, and was definitely NOT RED.
I fought it in traffic court, and the cop (who clearly had done this a million times before and had a prepared line to say to the judge) said that the light was full red 3 car lengths before I entered the intersection. This made it sound like he was really sure of being in the right. Actually this was a TOTAL LIE.
Nevertheless I was found guilty. Afterwards I saw the cop outside the courtroom and I went over and asked him point blank “How could you say say something like that which was completely untrue?!?”
He just smirked and shrugged his shoulders as if to say “Tough Luck!”

Do Police have a quota to fill? Do they get commision the more tickets they give?February 10, 2011 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #738443YW Moderator-80Member
there are serious problems with the police.
but we owe them a huge debt of gratitude
just try to imagine life in NYC one day after the police dept would be disbanded and nullified.
i dont think this thread is appropriate.
