There's a couple people on here who have gotten the trick of it, but I am definitely not one of them.

Nope not change the law but I expect them to do their job. Waited over an entire hour for state police to show and they never did. I find it funny though, he can give speeding tickets however if it benefits the citizen "it's out of his jurisdiction."

Well... generally if it's out of their jurisdiction... it's out of their jurisdiction. They can't help you, it's a liability to their department and their job could be on the line.

At the end of October this past fall, when we had that freak ice/snow storm, my dad and one of the brazilian guys were coming back from a job in PA. Yeah, PA. Why my dad took a job that far away I have no idea. Why he decided to go to work the day a huge storm was coming is just his "work work work" mentality.

Anyways, he eventually called me saying he was off the main road, lost and just about out of gas. He decided to take the '88 GMC truck (454, 4 speed with a bad clutch, no radio, no defroster, etc etc), while the brazilato took his envoy (heated seats, full of gas, working radio, etc etc). The highway was shut down and my dad detoured off the exit, but ended up in the middle of nowhere.

Back and forth through phone calls (his battery was dying too) I kept in touch with my dad and the other guy, trying to get them to find one another. It wasn't working and I was getting worried. Soon he ran out of gas and was now on the side of the road, 11pm, heavy heavy snow and really cold. My dad is 70 years old and takes medicine that thins his blood, so I was slightly worried about him.

I made the decision to call 911 to reach the local police in that town. I explained the situation and gave them as much detail as I could about my dad and his whereabouts. They gave me the "well, sir, where very busy tonight", blah blah blah speech, but said they would send an officer out in his direction.

More than an hour's time has passed by and my dad said still no police. Although he did say he seen one pass by at one point, but it didn't stop. Thankfully, our guy ended up somehow finding my dad and I think saved his life. He even stopped and was able to get a coffee for him throughout all of this. Such a miracle.

Moral of the story is, that for the first time in my life that I called 911 for an emergency, they completely let me down. Unfortunately for me, both of our cars were crushed by a tree and we had no power, so I was stranded where I was. Otherwise, I would have got in the car and tried to find him my damn self. So in a moment of despair, I called and asked for help.

I have little to no faith in police. They are never there when you need them and only there to catch you when you're in the wrong. I know this doesn't stand true for every single police department in the US, as I'm certain that there's still some good people out there still. Just my own personal experience with trying to get some help in a quite dire situation.

I strongly believe that my dad wouldn't have made it the rest of the night sitting in the truck on the side of the road. I will always thank nene for saving his life.

I concur.

Despite this, I always treat cops like they have the power to *** my life up. Because they do and that's a fact.
