    Just read this from CBS. Two Maryland citizens got a ticket for rescuing a drowning, freezing deer from icy waters. A Natural Resources officer watched them rescue the animal, then gave them a ticket. He never tried to stop them from rescuing the deer. What I really want to know is WHY wasn't the officer doing the good deed himself???? … icy-water/

      Why pay a fine when there was no violation listed?  I can't imagine it standing up in court.

      Still, it sounds like a real a$$ of a "cop".

      Why he wrote the ticket is a mystery.

      Why he didn't rescue the deer himself is easier: deer are evil.

      I once had a swarm of deer attack me at one of those 'feed the cute wildlife" parks. The bastards tried to eat my jeans, fer goodness sakes. I have no fond feelings for deer. Someday I might even try my hand at killing one of them on purpose, and feast upon its flesh.

    That is such sad thing. Citation for not wearing a vest when rescuing a deer? Oh come on, where is the holiday spirit? I hope that deer is fine and free I wish and these people will win the citation charges.

    That is seriously screwed up!
    I guess that is what happens when you give authority to a$$holes.

    Sadly I have heard far crazier and sickening stories then this. sad
    It is not all that hard to imagine why many young folks don't trust cops hmm

    That said, a good cop is a very valuable member of society and our communities. I have met a few nice and lovely cops, folks who really do protect and serve beyond just arresting people, who actually will help ya out big_smile

    The why is easily explained, the officer had a quota to fill, this was an easy ticket to write, he doesn't have to worry about his job for another month.   But he is still an ass.

    This is one of those cases where the cop applies the "letter of the law" to a ridiculous extent. I think he was either having a really bad day, or he's just a prick, or he hates deer.

    It is easy to blame this cop but it's more likely that the training system for cops or ticket enforcement encourages this behavior. It is no wonder that dirty tricks are applied in interrogations simply to close the case because closing the case is more important than finding the truth. In this case meeting the ticket quota is more important than common sense.

    I'm not bashing on cops - really! I have friends who are cops, and they hate the bad cops. There are, however, a few really bad cops who make the rest look bad. And this guy is one of those!

    You know the theory that some people become psychiatrists in a subconscious attempt to fix themselves?  Well, studies have lent some validity to that theory.  The same thing applies to cops; quite a few of them become cops in a subconscious attempt to correct their own criminal bent.  Those are the ones who become bad cops.
