Default Got stopped today

On my way to Cork, this morning.

The roads were quite, very little traffic at about 10 o'clock.

Was on the country roads, in the middle of nowhere, just coming into Charleville.

I rounded a bend and saw a guard in the middle of the road, waving his arms about. I saw his car at the side of the road with his lights flashing and it had stopped a car. I came to a stop and the guard asked me to turn off the engine and take off my helmet.

I asked him if there was a problem. He replied yes, you sounded as if you were going too fast. I said no I wasn't. He said what speed was you doing. I said 80. He said you sounded like you were going faster than that.
At this stage, the lad he had stopped in the car got out and made a run for it into the bushes, throwing 2 bottles as he went. The guard ran after him and caught him in the bushes and brought him back to the car and threw him back in the car.

He then came back to me and asked for my documents, which I gave to him. and he wrote my details on a brown envelope which he had in his pocket.
I asked again Am I being done for something. and he said no. Be on your way and keep your speed down.

What the fuck is that all about?

Don't really know, they looked like wine bottles, the guard picked them up anyway.

why would he write your details down. i think them lads keep records on everyone they stop. put it against your reg number so the next time your stopped they have a profile on you. theory... could be wrong. you should have taken his details for the craic. asked him for a wee bit of brown envelope to write on

Happened a lad that used to work with me (in a battered cage - exhaust), cop said he sounded like he was speeding and said he'd be summonsed, freaked him out, had to go to the station to check it for him, the desk boys nearly fell off their chairs laughing.

I got stopped last week coming into limerick, i was speeding (about 70mph). the gaurd said "I had to do 140kph(86mph) to catch up with you".
I was about to explain that that didn't mean i was doing 140, but decided against giving cheek as i didn't need the grief.
Still though they should teach the lads basic maths, of course he had to go faster than i was going to catch up to me. especially if he started from his hiding place on the side of the road.

if you are stopped for any reason, you are entitled to ask the garda for his no, also his name and rank, i as a citizan of this country am sick and tired of our uneducated police force , who still think they are living in the dark ages?. remember they are there to serve you, but somewhere along the road they have forgotton the pledge thay have taken, IE TO SERVE AND PROTECT.

its time we all stood up to these **** ****** ******** in blue?????

you dont have to put up with this lads
when stopped if you are being haressed , and you feel that you are being treated in a manner thet you dont agree with, ask the garda fr his name and no, ok

remmber your taxes are paying there wages
