  1. A 26 year veteran of the police department should have a greater sense of situational awareness. Unfortunately, police training has largely devolved to focus on compliance with the orders of superiors, which are often irrational. As a result of being in this coercive situation, the officers compensate by exacting compliance of those whom they interact with. Meanwhile, the courts have been dealing for decades with individuals who cannot keep track of time and meet appointments by issuing warrants, which are logged in the system and ignored until someone gets stopped for something else. Just knowing that this backlog of warrants exists gives the cops a reason to make spurious and random stops, sometimes for no other reason than they have seen out of county license plates.
