Why the hell cops need to fill quotas. I was going to make a thread in rants and raves over this but I don't want to waste space. It's that time of the month again. Only 2 weeks for cops to fill quotas! I understand the stress and danger of being a police officer, but I don't understand this! I was out on my stoop smoking. A cop car pulls up across the street. They already have a guy in the back. I'm sure that guy(whatever he is accused of doing) wants nothing more than to be processed and move on with his life. But no, one officer gets out of the car and proceeds to walk up and down that side of the block checking every cars inspection sticker. After 20 minutes she's written 3 tickets. Why the hell aren't you dealing with the problem you have on your hands first! Instead, you make the guy in the back of your squad car(who very well might be completely innocent or have just committed a misdemeanor) suffer through you filling your quota? Quotas are a real thing, as far as I've been told. I have a friend who's a cop in jersey and a friend I've known for 12 years who comes from a police family. They've both complained about it. I don't hate the police. I veiw them as necessary. But why bog them down with useless bs to pad statistics so the mayor/governor or police chief looks good? And if they aren't driving the car why ticket them for a expired inspection. Really pisses me off and leaves me scratching my head.
