Okay...Seeing something on my way home today made me want to ask this question. I was driving along, and I saw an officer conducting a stop smoking a cig while speaking to the person he had obviously just pulled over. I know that it might have been one that the driver had, but I clearly saw him take a drag while speaking to her. I understand that LE is a very stressful job, and there are plenty who smoke and/or chew. I am working at getting into the field myself right now, so I completely understand. However, wasn't what this guy was doing considered a little un-professional? I mean, why not just wait until the person pulls away to light up? Would any of you guys here do something like that? Or do you try and not do it around the folks you are speaking to while in Uniform? FYI: I used to smoke and still do chew cope' on occasion, so I have nothing against anybody who does. I was just curious.
