When a police officer stops you, it’s always advisable to cooperate. That’s been my usual method of dealing with law enforcement.
Only one time did I cop an attitude with an officer. And it didn’t work — I still got a speeding ticket.
A couple of weeks ago, I was stopped by state police Officer Frank Chavez for speeding, as I reported in my column last week. He was professional, just like nearly every officer I have encountered over the years. But sometimes, cops can get out of hand, just like those in any profession.
