So did he get the ticket?

It was just a routine traffic stop.

Yet what happened when a New Jersey trooper stopped a driver for a minor tinted windows infraction quickly went viral this week.

It all began when driver Matthew Bailly told the trooper that he was a retired Piscataway, N.J., police officer.

Trooper Michael Patterson replied that he was from the same town.

    Yeah, well, did the guy get a ticket, or not?

    If he deserved it, he deserved it…regardless of being a former cop, or even the guy who delivered the cop.

    Feel-good story trying to humanize road pirates who routinely extort the peasants in the name of the king?

      And as George Carlin pointed out, “We’re not in it.”

    Now why would the motorist tell the officer that he’s a retired officer? Uh huh, that’s what I thought.

    My wife’s friend was the executive secretary to the chief.
    She got pulled over a lot, never got a ticket.
    Yeah…we ain’t in it.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
