For the MPD - READ DESCRIPTION by rjcarroll For the MPD - READ DESCRIPTION by rjcarroll
12/18/10 - Montville, NJ

No officer, we are only taking pictures. Yes, of random things. I am unemployed and don't have much else to do and this doesn't cost me anything. Doesn't make any sense? Well, it's what I do. Yes, officer, random things. No officer, we won't go anywhere where we're not supposed to be.

There were about 30 attitude filled questions in all, for which I had valid answers for.

He was staliking us from Dunkin' Donuts. He said I saw ya behind DD. I said yeah, I went to DD. He said well I didn't see you come out with anything. I said I didn't buy anything, I just used the Men's room.

Then he goes why didn't you park in this area since you are walking here? I said since there are no cars parked on any street in this neighborhood it appears that there is no on street parking.

Well officer, if you are seeing this, this is what I shot after you hassled us. Nice, isn't it?

PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT A CRIME!

O--suspicious eyes breed suspicious intentions.
I have been advices several times to not be taking photos.
Subway--- buildings....
Buildings ...Can you believe it!
Of course--I then just used my cell phone...to be less obvious.
Kind in mind too--
the officer might just have felt threatened you might be aiming to deplete his stash of donuts:D

He was just being a pain in the ass. Seemed like it was a slow day...I'd totally would've hijacked the donut stash! :sprint:

Thanks Sara! Apparently, roaming freely in Montville, NJ is a crime.

Nice Shot!... Shame that you were mildly inconvenienced while taking it.

That said, thank goodness an officer is keeping his eyes open and showing some concern for the neighborhood. After all, that is what they get paid for. Perhaps when one of the "I don't like cops" crowd gets robbed or mugged they will remember to call "momma" instead of the cops that they love to put down.

Thank you. As a young child my ex-father was beating my Mom, the cops were called and responded but they just sat outside and did nothing. Been robbed. Called police. They refused to show up and told me to fill out a report at the station. Had a motorcycle accident, police refused to show up since an ambulance was not required. I've got more. Never had a positive experience when I needed law enforcement and was treated disrespectfully the few instances where I have needed to pick up/fill out forms at the station.
