These are not the droids you' re looking for....

These are not the droids you' re looking for....
Ever creatively talked your way out of trouble with the law?

I was riding with a group going north out of Stinson Beach Ca - riding a rigid frame chopped Triumph 500 Daytona - with a girl on back. I had just bought the bike - had no insurance, registration or license.

We passed a CHIP going the other way - and hit his brakes as if to turn around.

The other bikes all hit it. Leaving me in the dust.. We were just entering 13 turns and the cop lost sight of us for about 30 seconds... I pulled over quickly, shut off the bike and told the girl to get off and I did as well....
I grabbed a rock alongside the road and started beating on the bike' s muffler... The cop came around the corner - lights on - stopped and asked what I was doing......

"Muffler falling off... You got any tools?".

He says "Good luck" and takes off
....

Nothing makes a cop run faster than a plea for help with a dirty job......

RE: These are not the droids you' re looking for....
I had a cop talk himself out of giving me a ticket back in '85. Second husband and I had just got married and made our way back down to Sierra Vista, AZ to visit some friends for a few days. After a solo visit I was on my way back to where we were staying, driving on the bypass. Cop pulled me. I was speeding. He asked for all the usual paperwork and I told him that the names didn't match as we had just gotten married.

He went on to ask if I had ever driven the car before, I said I hadn't. He went on this long thing about how maybe husband had put different tires on the car and that could have an effect on the speedometer and let me go.

No clue what he was babbling about but I didn't even get a warning. It was really weird.

RE: These are not the droids you' re looking for....
Several years ago I was driving back home after a night out, a bunch of friends in the car, I saw a car right on my tail, any closer he would have been in the back seat. I kept to the speed limit, then turned into a side street to drop someone off. Thats when I saw the blue flashing lights on top! (oops!) I jumped out went over to the drivers window and hammered on it, when the cop lowered the window I let him have it, "What the hell are you doing doing driving so close, don't you know the stopping distance??" He seemed surprised and asked if I had seen the blue lights I said "No, you were so close I couldn't see anything, I assumed you were a drunk driver, be more careful next time!" I got back in my car and drove off... cop never moved!

The only benefit to misogyny is cops giving you leeway when they pull you over.

Only once, and it wasn't me.  I talked my buddy's way out of trouble with the law to his cop dad and the exchange left an impression on me that I carry to this day.  He told me he appreciated what I was doing for his son, but that I needed to learn to lie better or just shut my mouth entirely before somebody else showed up. Took his advice when they did.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I had a friend, a biker, who was ordered by a police officer to follow him, at least until they reached a fork in the road...
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

I was once pulled over for a non-working tail light. I told the constable, ‘Sorry about that. My father died and I’m having a hard time about it.’ He let me go with a verbal warning.

I neglected to mention that my father had died 15 years prior. So, it wasn’t a lie (just a tight squeeze).

Hehe 1976, my yet to be wife stubbed out a cigarette and dropped it out onto the pavement, right next to the boot of an LAPD motorcycle officer. Didn't get a ticket.
