    Angry Good Old DPD...wow!

    I see no way she does not beat this in court! Come on, I have personally seen Detroit PD impede Traffic to chat with one another or blow lights nearly causing accidents also for no reason. There is one word for the officer who issued this ticket....GRINCH!

    so yes?
    she was stopped at a light to do something else.
    in my opinion just as dumb as the people who eat, read, text, or put on makeup while driving or sitting at a light.

    Okay Beerme the law is the law but - by using your rational here, if I see a little old lady broke down in traffic and I put my hazards lights on and push her out of traffic to the safety of the shoulder I should be ticketed? Dude seriously, I know you pride yourself on being a cool customer but have a heart sometimes, right? By the way, in case no one else says it to you MERRY X-MAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU SIR!

    Dont worry about him bossbart he's always pulling some crap like that around here. You are right, and so was your wife. I'll never forget how it felt when I was homeless, and someone did that for me. What comes around goes around.

    Unfortunately Detroit PD is a corrupt department with very low standards. While there are some good cops on the job who are out there to make a difference in their community, the over whelming majority should not be in the position they are in. Detroit has one of the lowest hiring standards in Michigan and probably one of the lowest in the country. They have no problem hiring somebody with a questionable background verses someone who has a clean criminal history, as long as the candidate fits a diversity quota. These same hiring practices go on through out the city, this is one of the reasons Detroit is in the shape it is in.

    If the PD's union has filed for a peddlers permit, it is legal to stand and collect for the days filed. (just sayin).

    while i agree with the idea of helping out a homeless person your wife actually put herself into danger. a homeless person begging for change is a great pretext for a mugging or car jacking. and i whole heartedly agree that a ticket for doing that is absolute BULLS**t fight the ticket, i don't see you loseing in court.

    That's a common misconception, much like many that we as gunowners face. Sure we could pull a gun and kill someone, but we don't. There is the exception like Ft. Hood, but we just don't behave that way. Homeless people tend to be the same way, its a human nature issue really. There are contributing factors to homelessness such as drug and alcohol abuse, or mental illness, but they just don't go around hurting people that are trying to help them. They are typically too busy trying to survive, and maintaining a lower profile, partly to avoid LEO attention, partly due to feeling inadequate or dirty. Most of the time if you help them, they feel towards you like you are above and beyond other people that they might otherwise try to use in one form or another.

    ETA, that wasnt pointed at you bud.

    IBTL.

    Are you people really arguing about this?

    The woman was wrong to block traffic at a light. It doesn't matter if she was washing the feet of Jesus.

    PD was not compassionate in giving a ticket for the infraction.


    fin. The rest is simply posturing for position on a computer screen.

    I don't see an argument, or posturing here. Its a discussion about kindness, morals, right and wrong, and the line between what a LEO dept, can enforce, and what they should enforce.

    This thread borders on LEO bashing.
