What are the odds?

"Although he did see lots of commendations looking back over the last 20 years -- over the last 25,000 traffic stops, Capt. Maxwell couldn't find one complaint. A record zero." (speaking of the traffic deputy.)

I will send in a complaint with no facts, incorrect information, and load it with falsehoods just so IAB can get him and tarnish his good reputation.


I am really surprised about all those stops and nocomplaints. Normally you would get a couple that at least wants to trade a complaintfor a ticket and think itís some type of deal.

That is just down right impressive. Maybe I should go see a dentist and have them improve my smile on the departments dime, all in the name of improving community relations.

Kudos to the deputy. Just goes to show that professionalism and a good attitude can never be overlooked.

I don't understand. How could there be 25,000 traffic stops with no survivors?

It's the only explanation for no complaints....

The Deputy missed their true calling in Sales.

That's easy, just use one of the several, spare coworker name tags in your cruiser... If the **** is really going to hit the fan, change it out to someone in admin.

When I was a young hard charger, I walked through admin and detectives with an unstated purpose.

After that, when some crazy loon or a similar person demanded a card, I gave them one of the previously appropriated and shuffled business cards. People that hadn't been on the street in 15+ years couldn't figure out why someone who was complaining to them days later that their apartment manager was part of the Illuminati's new world order and repressing their 'rights'.

I have only one regret in doing this - that I never put "joinder" on the back of the cards.
