When I started in '66 we didn't have cameras and the Miranda desision was not in effect. As I think back---maybe it's a good thing we didn't have cameras
After reading that "ticket thread" and thinking of the bad rap we get for being such a close knit group, I remember that everytime you get into a social situation with civilians someone always has a story about a damn ticket they got or a friend of theirs got, and they want you to explain it to them. It's no wonder that most officers socialize between themselves, so they don't have to listen to that crap off duty as well as on duty. I also believe that in most cases(there are exceptions) if you treat people the way they deserve to be treated you don't have to worry about sitting anywhere with your back toward the door--Remember I said there are exceptions to this!
