    There have been several just this week and two in my home SC. People pulling the race card for a traffic violation and then being proven a liar on video. Is this to be allowed? Props to the officers dealing with this but is it not punishable to falsely accuse in the face of concrete evidence to the contrary? It's creating a bad look based on lies and contributing to the degradation of society. THX

    I can't speak on behalf of my agency, but in the 8+ years on patrol, the race card was pulled many times and multiple complaints later of "you pulled me over because I'm ___________", *never* worked. I'm *not white* so I always thought it was interesting pulling the race card with me. I can't say I was ever stopped because I was X, Y, and Z back in my younger days.

    What's funny is that there are no legal consequences of bringing a bogus complaint about an officer (with my agency anyways). There used to be a form with the statement "I declare under penalty of perjury, the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge..." box that required a signature. California Civil Code 47.5 has rarely ever been enforced.

    What usually shuts people down is when I tell them "hey, it's fine you think that. But just so you know. You are being audio and video recorded. All of this is subject to review in court and available to the public through a discovery request. Do you have any further concerns or questions?"

    It's not a great time to be a police officer. Only another 15 years till retirement. ;)

    Yeah, see, there it is right there. My best LEO bud recently retired and he resisted the camera stuff solidly. I just could NOT understand his reticence to utilize the camera. It would seem capable of exonerating cop every single time. Conversely, it would help catch a bad cop in the act, or maybe it would prevent a cop from losing his cool, knowing the recording is there. So it's a great protection for LEO and for citizens.

    I know exactly what story you're talking about... Everyone runs around in a permanently offended state nowadays. Dumb.

    it happens in all lines of work. A month ago a lady reemed me out calling me a racist(she was Spanish) cause her oil change took over an hour to do. I told her if that's what you think then never return to this dealer.
