So i'm on my way to work today, I pass an cop literally on the street my business is on. I pull in the the company, then pull into the parking lot, start getting out of my truck, then he pulls up behind me, doesn't throw his lights on. Yells at me to get back in my truck, so I do. He comes up to me and asked why my inspections expired, blah blah blah, hes a HUUUUUUGE ass of a cop. I'm being polite the whole time, and hes just being an ass. Told me to stay in my truck, goes back to his car, writing the ticket, walks back up to the truck, i'm not even paying attention, and instead of tapping on the glass, he literally just punches it once to get me to roll my window down, hands me a ticket and takes off.

Is it legal for him to have come on private property as well as to do what he did w/o the lights?

Why didn't you tell him to get off your private property?

HAHAHAHA!! Good one! His response would be something like this:

"Oh, trying to be a smartass, huh? Well now I'm writing you up for that busted tail light!"

"What busted tail light?"

How well would that have gone over if there was camera surveillance? There are cameras all over outside where I work. What would happen if you had evidence of a cop smashing out your taillight, for example?

Nothing.

Because here in LA, we would say you edited the Video. With technology, even the camera is capable of lying.

much depends on his reason for pulling you over (i know - you was parked already...)
if his reason was spotted before the private property, and valid, he can pursue onto private property.
I dunno how your inpesction works. if its just paperwork, and not visable until you hand it to him, no theres no way he could have known, so there would be no reason to pursue you further.

If he saw the inspection was out while you were on the street he is in his rights.

I realize cops have a job to do, and I agree with George Carlin, in that a cop should have the right to shoot your ass if running from him. But if this is the way it went down, no reason for him to be an ass to start with.

In Texas, a cop can not come on private property to arrest someone for a misdemeanor. Now, it works best when you own the property. Also, there was that debate here about smoking being banned in public. People do tend to think of a business as not being private property.

funny you mention cops being pricks. my wife was telling me about the sheriffs dept calling her up asking for a donation. she told the guy that we didn't have the money this yr, two young kids and lots of family to buy for. the guy said "well you donated $25 last yr?" wife goes "well i don't have it this yr." ok how about $15? uh, no. i don't have it, sorry. well, how about..click.

i really, really hate to say it but this is what what pisses me off about non-profits. you give them some money once and then they think you "owe" them forever. be glad you got my hard earned cash once. don't try to piss me off...

i could expand but have already derailed this topic enough. he's the cop and always right. just remember his actions when the next tax raise or policeman's charity comes around.

I hate it when they do those calls. I get them more because Im a business. The only time there around to protect my property is when I call them. I just tell them I donated (insert date) at (station location) for the last ticket they gave me. The ones doing the calls arent in the police, so my refusal dont affect their patrol. If I thought it would work, Id rather slip the cash under the table to the on duty officers to keep an eye on things.

That was not the sheriff's department calling. It was a private, for-profit, boiler-room fund raising operation. They generally keep more than 85% of the money they raise this way for themselves. The "Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association" or the "Widows and Orphans Fund," if they exist at all, get squat.

I admire your generosity, but please find a legitimate charity to donate to.

And Roger is right, businesses get a lot more of these calls. The barely-transparent threat of these scumbag solicitations is that your business will receive preferential police and fire protection if you contribute generously.

He is a sucker isn't he.
sostock, police officers are one of the few which are represented by unions where unions do not exist. Also one of the very few that can unionize against (key word) a government entity. Police officers are well taken care of as are their dependents and spouses.
The people making those call get a cut. Probably a sizable one.

we have a troopers association here that keeps 80% of all donations to themselves, the other 20% goes to troopers who are off work on workers comp, if you ask me its all a big scam.
