Let me be the first to say(type).

This little discussion has certainly taken a bit of a twist.

When I was a kid I did a lot of bad stuff. But ---- I was always good at co
vering my ass so I wouldn't get caught. And I mean some REALLY bad and dang
erous stuff.

However the one time I did have a run in with the law ( and I may have ment
ioned it here before) was about 20/25 years ago.

Had a customer who's store front window was broken in -- in the middle of t
he night. He responded and stayed at the store until morning. He called the
 glazer and me. Wanted me to be on standby to refoil the window after the g
lass was installed. Well, the glazer didn't show up until about 6PM so ther
e I am at 9PM at night with keys to the store, rewiring and installing the  
foil. My van is parked right at the curb and front entrance to the store. S
o --- I'm going in and out of the store to the van for parts and tools and  
locking up everything because 4 stores down the block is a Dominos pizza wi
th a bunch of teenagers making a lot of noise and raising hell.

So, I needed a hacksaw from the van. I unlocked the store front door, walke
d directly to the van, opened the side door, climb in and going through my  
tool basket looking for my hacksaw and the kids go running by the van, bang
ing on the side and hooting and hollering and try to slide the door shut on
 me. I back out of the van and stand there looking at them to see what thei
r next move is going to be. So the biggest one a little taller than me, wit
h purple hair and pierced eyebrow, walks up to me followed by the other 4 p
ushes me on the shoulder and asks me "What do you think YOUR"RE going to do
?". At which point I rapped him in the head 4 or 5 times with the hacksaw.  
He WAS lucky in one respect that I didn't come out to the van for a hammer.
  

Here's where I made the mistake. I should have called the cops but after I  
hit him they ran away down the street. I thought it was over with. But THEY
 called the cops. When the cops showed up they spoke to the kids first and  
I have no idea what they told them. The cops then asked me what happened an
d then went back to the patrol car. Shortly after that, another patrol car  
showed up and the first one took off. The second cops came in to the store  
saw what I was working on and in the alarm business and said that they were
 supposed to take me into custody since it was a case of assault. I told th
em what happened and It was pretty obvious that I didn't just take a mind t
o attack 5 teeagers with a hacksow. So they just gave me a summons to appea
r. Come to find out the purple hair kids father was a cop. So I'm guessing  
that the cops in the first patrol car knew his father, and just told the se
cond cops to arrest me.  
I had to pay $5k to an attorney and got off with a warning. I know the judg
e knew what had happened. (almost lost my pistol license too) I looked for  
the kid at the pizza place for a long time afterwards but never did see him
 again. It turned out to be a good thing for both of us.
Lucky kid and lucky me.  
Next time I would have gotten a much longer sentence.

One time out at the lake (dirt road) a buddy of mine was leaving pulling  
his boat.  If he was doing 10 MPH at the time it would be an  
exaggeration.  He had pulled off the side of the road, and eased towards  
the middle to pass some pedestrians.  In the other direction a small car  
came drifting around the hill side.  Full on drifting out in the middle  
of the road.  It was a pretty long sweeping turn so he had to be  
cooking.  He just raked all the way down the side of my buddies truck  
and boat and then spun out coming to a stop.  The first cop who  
responded in plane clothes.  Said they were both at fault, so he could  
write up a report, write them both a ticket, or they could just go home  
and each let their own insurance handle it.

I walked out, paced off the center line of the road and then walked the  
ruts (yes ruts) left from drifting, and said really load so everybody  
within yelling distance could hear me, "The kid must be related to  
somebody because he was probably drifting at over 100 miles per hour  
when he cross the center line and hit (my buddy's) vehicle.  (My buddy)  
wasn't even over the center line."  That cop looked at me.  He face  
showed fear and then hatred as I walked to my truck and said, "You tell  
that punk to keep his wreck off the road until I get out of here.  I  
can't afford to replace my truck and boat at my own expense because the  
cops refuse write him up for criminal speed."

Later I asked my buddy and sure enough the cop bullied him into leaving  
without an accident report under a threat of a false ticket for being  
over the center line.  I saw it happen and I knew better.  The evidence  
was clear as day on the road.  You could clearly see the drift marks  
from the car even after several other vehicles had driven over them.

$80K truck with every surface on drivers side smashed or crushed.  
(brand new that year)  Boat totaled.  Maybe $30K.  Cop refuses to write  
an accident report and shows fear on face when somebody says something  
about it.

That was just plain nasty to say the least!!  I can't top that
but here is one story that comes to mind.

Back in 1967 after returning home from my military time half way around  
the world with the US Navy, I was visiting a friend in town.
I was driving a 56 Ford.  When I was leaving I bumped the car behind me
getting out of the parking space. No big deal, I continued home.  After
about 15 minutes, I received a call from the person I was visiting.  She
asked if I had hit a car when I was leaving.  I said, yes, I bumped the
car behind me??  She well the Cops are looking for you!!  I said, I will  
be right there.  I got there and sure enough the car behind me was I
believe a Chevy Nova and had Aluminum Bumpers. My Ford had steel  
vertical bumperets.  Needless to say it left a dent in the bumper upon a
minor bump.

I told the owner, who I also knew, that I would take care of it!!
Cop came over and asked for my information.  Told him that I will
take care of the damage since it was my fault.  He then said, I will
have to report this as "leaving the scene of an accident".  WHAT?!?!

I went to court and explained the situation to the Judge. Who after
deliberation of about 40 milliseconds dropped the gavel and said,
"THREE MONTHS SUSPENSION".      I then realized that I was made
an example of since they actually caught one this time.

   know that feeling,
When I was a L.E.O.  i caught a kid with 5 lbs of pot, took him in, did
all the paper work.. turned him over to the detectives.  next day
found him out selling again..
Checked with detectives as to why?  they told me they had to let him
go,  cause........  he was cousin to the Attorney General of the State..
(who later became the Governor of that state....)

no example for him,    just a get out of jail card...
Never knew what he turned into later in life but I do know his uncle
was a first class horse's ass.......

about like some of those we see in the news today....
