If the police came up to you and said "We need to take your car" would you let them?

You know how in movies they are chasing after a guy and runs up to a random person in a car and said "We are police we need to take your car". Would you let them take it?

    Only if the one they were chasing somehow had wronged me. But I''d probably be using my car to chase them myself!

    No way...but if he was on foot, or wrecked his car and a gang/someone was about to kill him I would give him a ride but chasing people that have stolen some money or items I would be saying no way as I drive away.---

    Wouldn't they need a warrant or something?

    I mean, if say, I saw that he (I am picturing Bruce Willis in a sweaty, dirty wife-beater, with blood on his face and a gun in his hand) needed my car to go after the bad guy, I might say yes. But if a cop just randomly said "give me your car," my reaction would be "You are not above the law".

    Nope... unlike the movies, you have no legal obligation to let them do that. If they made a scene, I'd get out and throw the keys into a sewer drain. Here's a fact:

    If the cops "borrow" my car and F it up in a chase, they will not compensate me. How often is a police officer without a car anymore anyway? When was the last time you saw a cop on foot patrol?

    Or at least, “not really”.

    First of, is there some sort of eruption of Law Enforcement Officers commandeering civilian vehicles lately? If there is, I haven't seen it in my jurisdiction, or for that matter any of the surrounding jurisdictions here in Tennessee.

    I have heard of Federal Agents doing that, and those reports are few and very far between, and I do believe there is a Federal statute for that.

    There would be so many ramifications (like damage insurance) if a State, County of Local Law Enforcement Officer commandeered a civilian vehicle, that right after the Officer is laughed out of the Briefing Room by his fellow Officers, that Officer (if he is allowed to keep his job) would be doing School Crossing Guard Duty for the rest of his/her career.

    We have radios and cell phones, and if it is an emergency that a suspect be apprehended, and the Officer is on foot (and the suspect is in a vehicle), we call ahead to a Patrol or Chase Unit.

    My recommendation is that the people who are so wrapped up in a subject like this, stop believing the dumb TV Cop shows.

    Well, my friend, whatever your reason, it has attracted them, some even using threatening comments.

    I'm sure that was not your intent, but unfortunately there are those who will take any excuse to bash Law Enforcement.

    The comment will be erased.

    The last sentence was, and that's the one that was made comment on.

    The rest of my post was made to be informative (with a bit of humor mixed in). And who better to give out information on a subject concerning the behavior of Law Enforcement, than a Law Enforcement Officer...

    Well, you can't blame people for believing that vehicle commandeering by Law Enforcement is an every day occurrence. Just about every cop show on TV portrays it as such.

    Yep... my sense of humor may be dry, but I do have one. Thanks for recognizing it.

    Cops have numbers on their cell phone that work better than 9-1-1, and if I'm not mistaken, they're supposed to always be armed and have a phone with them... just in case.
  • BackWoo... Beat Ma... 2012/04/27 16:06:35
    BackWoodsMike
    You are correct, we all carry Cell Phones, but the Department does not give our CP number out to the public. County Sheriff Departments allow the public to call the Sheriff's Office and ask for an Officer. That Officer will give that Civilian a “public service” (phone call back).

    Normally we have all of the Officers on our shift, and numbers of our Supervisors programed in.

    If police take your car it now becomes a police vehicle and they will not let anyone ride in a police car unless you are the bad guy. If you refuse to get out they just point their gun at you and you would get out then they have your arrested for failing to obey...Police can ask to take anything, boat, jet ski, snow mobile, horse for those pesky criminals that like woods...LOL etc ....
