No not that stuff! I'm talking about rookie mistakes. Stuff that could have ended bad, but by the grace of God worked out fine and you learned a lesson. Lets hear them! Here's one that sticks in my mind. Shortly after FTO I was on my one, cruising my beat one hot summer night. I'd stopped in a parking lot to shoot the breeze with a city kitty and kill sometime. (quiet night, not much traffic moving) Shortly after we part company I hear the same officer call out a pursuit. As I'm heading his way he puts out that he's lost the vehicle. As luck would have it, I find the vehicle and initiate a stop. The vehicle stopped for me as soon as soon as I lit him up. At this point my spidy senses were going crazy, saying, "Something ain't right, bro. He just ran from a city cop, but he stopped for you. He's gonna take off again when you get out...or maybe the ****s gonna hit the fan. He's got blacked out windows, you can see in at all. This a bad juju!" Did I listen to my gut? Of course not. I was a dumb boot just off of FTO. I approached that car jsut like any other traffic stop! As it turned out, it was an off-duty city officer dicking with his buddy. Shortly after I defused the situation via tombstone courage the on-duty officer arrived. I informed him of the situation and left him to deal with his retarded squadmate. By that time I was realizing how I very well could have just gotten my fool head blown off had the driver been an actual BG. Looking back I certainly learned a few lessons. First, I definitely would have waited for back up and conducted a felony stop. Secondly, listen to your gut. If your spidy sense is telling you something isn't right, it probably isn't it. Take a extra few mintues to ensure your safety. So what if it turns out to be nothing, LE isn't a race. You're the boss, command your scene, call, stop.
