You crossed the crosswalk on a red?
Did he ticket you?
He might be a training officer with a rookie on the passenger seat.
I doubt if he was showing off, I think he was doing his job.

There is more to the story, the bandit tax collector had a what appeared to be an under age "ride along" dressed in shabby clothes, the bandit was going to have the ride along run the ID, Hoot had the good sense to put a stop to that, that is very bad form to say the least.

Vancouver cops are worse...

I rode the bus for about 9 months, taking a class at the skills center, ended up in Downtown.. anyways, at the transit mall waiting for my bus, this bike cop(you know, gun belt and scarey bike shorts? ) comes up to me..

Wants my ID, look in my bag, and to know what I was doing downtown. I ask why, he gives a rather dumb answer like I should just because he asked. Told him wasn't any of his business and the guy really started getting irritated. Didn't do anything but was pretty much an unprofessional jerk.

What was funny was at the time I had no ID or anything like that anyways. Shouldn't be to hard on the guy, as they had been busting people dealing down there several times, but still! I didn't exactly look the dealer part

Now, Clark County Sheriff's Deputies, Camas PD, and Washougal PD are for the most part an outstanding group to deal with.. well there is a couple guys on Camas that have issues, but I won't go there.. and one of the Washougal guys carries a 1911, whats up with that

Criminals and gangs are what they mean when they say diversity. They are exporting their problems out of the cities. They spent a lot of our money creating these freaks and now they are unleashing them to overrun the land. It's called low income housing.

He was not J walking, I go through Monroe late just about every night when it is late after 22;00 the lights always change from green to red when you are only half way through, when the light goes green you have to gunit in order to make it half way into the inersection before the light changes.

Who ever ets the timing on the lights needs their ass kicked and the police twice for knowing the light timing is bullsshit.

R-32 J-walking doesnt work, a few months ago they tried to get me for J-walking on a bike. when I pulled out of a parking lot, Using the rules of the road,


Riding on the Road - When riding on a roadway, a cyclist has all the rights and responsibilities of a vehicle driver (RCW 46.61.755). Cyclists who violate traffic laws may be ticketed (RCW 46.61.750).



And the Criminal Tax collector didnt believe me that I was in the right, I had to argue with him to not get a ticket

Isn't this a light issue rather then a cop issue?
Washington state has guidelines for pedestrian lights, maybe monroe should be following those or asking their citizens for input about pedestrian lights that only sprinters are gonna manage. I don't wanna rain (more) on anybodies parade if we're all having fun with the cop angle, but the councils more likely to listen and have the power to change this. And... they're -easily- contactable:
http://www.ci.monroe.wa.us/info/Contacts.php
has a link for a group that emails all of the councilmembers, I'd tell it to you but then you wouldn't have to go to their web page and see all the names and phone numbers and such.
And that's -my- rant.

I think he was just being an ass on this one. Most crosswalks whereever you go will turn red hand by the time you take a few steps in the crosswalk when the green hand flashes. Sorry to hear you got harassed. That's just petty crap that he had to waste his time on. They must be bored over that side of town.

Sounds like he didn't have probable cause to look in your bag.
Asking for ID is OK but looking in your bag without PC is a sad thing. I woulda got his badge # and called in the Attorney General's office to make a complaint.

Home of three large state prisons and the new mexico teaming with alien gangs and relatives of the inmates in the Monroe prison, they get extra money to deal with all the problems the prisons bring.

jonathan, correct me if I read this wrong, but it sounds like he asked to look in your bag, NOT that he forcibly took the bag and searched it?
TRD- A cop can always ask to look and gain your consent to a voluntary search. No nuisance complaint to the AG is warranted there.
A LEO also can stop and identify a person regarded as suspicious, to determine if they are up to no good. Some LEO's do make bad decisions.....

If there was a complaint anywhere in there, it's his unprofessional manner and demeanor. THAT warrants a call to the Chief or Sherriff.

In hoot's case I'm sorry to say that lodging a complaint for CUBO or Conduct Unbecoming an Officer, would attract more attention than it would solve..

Everyone makes bad decisions sometimes, that's normal. My question is, if the cops asks and u refuse, what can happen? I understand the stop and identify, these days, it's necessary, a cop got shot in the face in Pooyalop a few weeks ago. Sad.

They need a warrant.

The real question is what can the police do with you and/or your closed bag until they get a warrant to search it? Hopefully, nothing at all.

Back to the real world, the one with people in it, I imagine that getting a police dog that is trained to detect (insert something illegal here) to come and pee on it sniff it would be reasonable, but they could not unreasonably detain you to wait for the dog to show, say, if it was clear on the other side of the county, without "reasonable suspicion" (def).

Just saying "no" to a warrantless search is not reasonable suspicion, IMO. Like you said, everyone makes mistakes, but those in power need to use it sparingly.

Dont forget in Monroe there is the Monroe PD, the East Pct for the sheriffs office, a office for the State Patrol, we are the last big town before heading East. It makes a perfect place to put cops.

Hoot, all those cops were doing a shift briefing. So there's nothing wrong with that. I think it's cool, I would rather do a briefing at a Denny's over hot coffee and donut over some other dumpy place.
That or they were doing a prior to raid briefing.
