And the fact that he did the same thing but first doesn't matter why? Cause he's a cop? The pot calling the kettle black.

I still think its funny that they are now having the Attorney drawing up what a off duty officer can and cant do.

This way they can justify what he did and make it legal, but I think they will be sorry and it may come back to bite them u know where. More problems will result from that idea. If it were legal why would an attorney need to draw up anything it should be covered in their job description, right? obviously it's not in the books anywhere or it wouldn't be an issue.

Problem with this is that most cops already suffer from"god complex" and this will heighten that issue and bring on more. What about the civilian who thinks it's an off duty cop trying to pull them over and b'cuz of this addendum to their duties ppl will think this, but it turns out it's not a cop and the trusting,law abiding citizen ends up dead. Who's going to be held accountable for this? Is the attorney then going to draw up an addendum to the addendum etc., etc., etc. Assinign, penalize the cop as u should for irresponsible acts outside of his job description and stop trying to give him permission to override the law. How stupid !

IMO The cop was just as wrong. There may not have been a cop on duty in P.B. but the Sheriff, State Police were only a cell phone call away.

More than likely the cop didn't like what he dished out and abused his authority to get even.

No excuses for this cop. With 20 years he should have known better.

Wasn't there a problem a few years back with people pulling over for what they believed was an unmarked cop car and wound up being beaten and robbed.

In this world people should not be expected to take those kind of risks.

REAL COPS WERE ONLY A CALL AWAY.

The law already spells out what a cop can and can not do. Some attorney draft will mean nothing.

The same DA that helped let the Auburn DPW workers get away with robbery.

Auburn Police Chief break state bid laws and walk away.

Yup Cayuga County is shinning.

Changing of a DA will not change the law.

"She thought she was becoming a victim of road rage."

And she was, of course. But, in a Police State, you'll have wackos who will pull this kind of thing.

"I don't know if I would have pulled over or made a cell call to 911."

You don't know if you would?As I read it, there was absolutely nothing to indicate he was a cop. Why would you EVER consider pulling over for some nutcase dangerous driver on a country road?

If possible, I would have gotten his plate #, and would have called the troopers ASAP, even without a plate #.

Who knows, if she had done this to someone else that person may have really expressed road rage in an entirely different way.

He tried to stop her, apparently realized she would not as he was not in a marked car so he went to the station and found out whose vehicle it was. It could have been a stolen vehicle, or someone bent on running someone off the road, or whatever.

The officer should be commended, not critized. She should accept this as a lesson and in the future drive safely paying attention to the rules of the road.


"she noticed a black escalade with bright lights started tail-gating her. “He flew right by me like I was standing still."

"The driver then pulled up alongside of her, waving his hands, trying to get her to pull over."

It sounds like he was tailgating, with brights up while following closer than 200 ft., speeding, road rage, and reckless driving. He should have written himself about 5 tickets and turned himself in, with no further harassment of or intimidation of her.

If she had put on her brakes and he plowed into her, I wonder how that would have read? From what I read, this was started by the off duty police officer who was driving recklessly. She exasperated it later, of course... so they both should be ticketed. Fat chance a cop ever gets a ticket though... or ever gets one that isn't later expunged.

MHO-He should have called in the plate number, explained the situation and let an on duty officer handle the situation. Like any other citizen should do.
