City police officers used to "project" at a business I owned in Ohio. In other words, city police officers provided security for my business, and they wore their police uniforms while doing so. During that period, I became very close to the officers, we had many conversations, and I overheard many conversations they had with each other.
While most police officers wanted to be as helpful as possible to the public, I can remember a few officers who loved to be bullies and who seemed to enjoy intimidating the public.
I remember one officer laughing about how he pulled over a sixty-five-ish senior citizen for making a right turn on a red light where a sign was posted "No Right Turn on Red." The traffic was thin and, as it turned out, the lady had taken a medication that suddenly caused her to have diarrhea. That was why she made the turn - so she could pull into the gas station on the corner and quickly use the restroom.
The officer told me that the lady kindly stated that she would gladly accept the ticket and pay it, but asked the officer if she could please run into the gas station rest room first.
Well, the police officer thought it was the funniest thing in the world that he not only made the senior citizen sit there and crap her pants, but that he made her sit there in it for over twenty minutes while he took his time writing the ticket. Think of this folks, that woman could have been any of your mothers or grandmothers.
Again, while most officers will go out of their ways to be helpful, there are more than a fair share of police officers who are block-headed creeps and bullies who should not be on the street. It seems that Chattanooga's officer James Daves fits into this latter categorie.
