To protect and serve

Most cops have heard just about every excuse imaginable for why someone was driving too fast, but I think this might have been a first — the driver didn’t know how to tie his necktie and needed to find someone to help him. Watch this cop go above and beyond the call of duty. 

(This happened in the town where I have lived for the past 39 years. Our cops are the best.)

    And once the other cop stopped recording, they choked this idiot out with it.

    • The cop was solo — this is from the dashcam video. 🙂

      (Also, he later invited the kid to the station for a lesson in how to tie a tie.)

        I apologize. I realize I’m stepping on what should be a feel good story about a police officer. (Edit: Deftly the police officer placed the tie around the kid’s neck and pulled him gently outside of the dashcam video frame… and then politely choked him out with it after which he invited the boy to the station to learn how to tie a tie and drive his Expensive German Sports Sedan more slowly and responsibly in the nicest possible way. Once arriving, the rest of the station took turns choking him out with his newly tied tie, while admiring how such a young person can afford such a beautiful vehicle and wondering at the same time how such an achievement can be made without knowing how to tie a tie or why he would wait until the very last minute to learn thus inducing panic and suddenly finding reckless driving to be a viable solution to his dilemma…)
        However the story goes I like the cop.
        Just having fun BOB. I’ll stop. Sorry.

    Tying a tie is sort of a male rite of passage. By the time you get out of college, you better know how to do it. So I guess I am too old for that one.

  5. I have not worn a tie for decades and have forgotten how to tie the damn things. Wanted to wear one at a funeral in 2014 and downloaded a cheat sheet, but it did not help. [Glad nobody was offended by my open collar.] The cop was smart as well as considerate: he tied it loose and draped it over the guy’s head. The rattled guy only needed to snug it up, not actually tie it. Learning to drive safely is vastly more important than learning how to tie a necktie.
