    No ****, there I was...

    Patrolling the neighborhoods of a certain Louisiana city as a police officer. I see a guy who looks sort of suspicious (pants sagging, no shirt on, sweating...). I initiate an investigatory stop to learn more about the individual's identity and his actions. As soon as I stop the patrol car, he breaks into a full sprint in the opposite direction. The chase is on. I hop out of my patrol car and begin a foot chase. Just when I close the distance with a few feet, he cuts into someone's yard and then hurdles their 6 feet tall wobbly wooden fence. In my attempt to go after him, I scale the fence also. But in doing so, my Pre, which sits in my shirt pocket, gets sandwiched between my body and the face. After I catch the guy and book him into the city jail, I go to make a phone call only to realize that my beloved Pre has a severely cracked screen and all touch capabilities had been lost. Damn. Glad I got the insurance.

    Moment of silence....

    Isn't endangering an innocent underage Pre a misdemeanor in most cities?

    In Louisiana, the offense is titled: Pre-slaughter. Carries a penalty of 2-5 years at hard labor.

    Are the cracks so bad it will be a "closed" box exchange?

    I don't know what a closed box exchange is. But yeah the cracks are pretty severe. My pre has stretch marks. Furthermore, my touchscreen is completely unresponsive.

    I think he was making a reference to open/closed casket service.

    It's good to know that having no shirt, wearing saggy pants and perspiring turn you into a suspected criminal. Can I see your papers please?

    As an experienced cop, you learn your normal area of patrol (beat). You know the people who live in the area. Who know who's normally not in the area. You gain a sixth sense on who's up to no good. When a guy is seen looking nervous, sweating profusely when its cool outside, looking shocked upon stumbling upon a cop, he's normally up to something. And before all the "racial profiling" ish gets started, let me make it known that I'm a black cop, patrolling a 98 percent black neighborhood. The same neighborhood in which I was born and raised. I know nearly everyone. So, I know who's who in my beat.

    To speak upon that which you do not understand is to expose yourself as an *****.

    Sorry to hear about your PRE. They aren't a standard issue there are they? Will the City/Agency reimburse you for the pre "killed in the line of duty"?

    they won't reimburse, but they did lower the flag to half-staff and are preparing a proper burial. I don't know if I'll be able to take it. Such a sad time.

    I think the other thing that comes into play is that if I were walking around my neighborhood (with or without a shirt, pants however I choose to wear them, and sweating or dry), I should not have too much trouble having a police officer stop and say, "Hey! What's your name and what are you doing?"

    I assume in this scenario that I have a purpose to be in the area I am in and I am free of warrants.

    There may have been more than meets the eye to this story. But not from any information we were given.

    Too bad about the phone.
