Officer Robert Powell V2
One hell of a fine officer is what you are
Fully believe, embrace and hold onto that
And you will get through these all too harsh times
Filled with jealously of your handsome superiority and power
That is all that they are
I bet that if they had been in your shoes
Every last one of them would have done the same damn thing
Can't really expect these lesser, dumber beings to understand the actions of us gods, anyway
Everything you did was right and strictly by the book
Regardless of what any of these idiot naysayers say
Just know that your fellow gentlemen in uniform stand behind you
 
Rules were made to be enforced
Never broken
One way or another you had to do your job
One way or another you had to keep one of the great unwashed in line
And you did it
That in itself is something to be proud of
Better to break a few hearts and raise a little hell than to risk breaking one of our laws
Laws set in stone
Enemies of the badge and its power will seek to tear you down
Have no fear
They will not be allowed to do so
 
Standing as one mighty force behind you
We will run the scum back underneath the rocks from which they crawled
Never again to dare to slander the good name of one of our own
 
A damn fine upstanding man and cop as well....
 
Officer Robert Powell

Well, speaking as a someone who has been an officer of the law, law is not an absolute; the discretion of the officer has to be above personal feelings and by the act as he sees it.  It is not written in stone...so I believe he should have allowed them to go and followed them and verified but pulling his gun, he showed his inexperience....let's hope he can learn lots more about "enforcing" and he has apologized to the couple and they accepted. I think he learned tht he has to think on his feet and so what if they got away; running a stop light is dangerous for others and for the couple but in this instance, it wouldn't have meant the end of the world (and yet what happened was that it was the end of the world for the girl's mother); learn  to balance enforcement with the crime committed!
