most cases I have seen regarding a female abusing a male is the male will have marks of some kind. You can tell who is lying once you start talking to people. never go into a situation with your mind made up. I personally will not hit a woman, I have thrown and choked quiet a few though. I do not tolerate that shit on or off duty
throwing and choking arent forms of assault? i believe this is a very gray area where females have the upper hand. im fairly passive but i worry that i may just have a burst of rage and lose it in a situation like that. (bottled up anger and it has happened to some extent) therefore, if i have this knowledge handy i believe i can control myself to the point of her receiving all the legal persecution afforded to her while i release some rage/stress @ the range or something.
I suggest attempting to restrain. In Harris county, once you put your hands on someone's neck in a family violence situation, its an automatic felony. I throw and choke on and off duty cause I can articulate why I did what I did. I suggest just to restrain for a normal person. i train in BJJ so I know how to apply the techniques properly
The bottom line is that legally there is no difference between a man and a woman committing assault.
In a household the best thing to do is LEAVE, I always tell people that when you see it getting bad just walk out.
You can defend yourself, but I believe a bit of reasonableness comes into play, if a 5'02 110 girl hits me in my stomach and I [6'03 210lbs] punches her in her face three times breaking her nose, eye socket and jaw....well I'm not sure that's going to be looked at positively.
Sorry about the above posts [written on my phone]
Anyways, if I remember right it didn't take very long once I passed my TCLEOSE test at the end of the academy. I think like most things it's varies with how many people are applying.
I know in other states there are regular vehicles used as undercover traffic enforcement cars. Houston doesnt do that though for citizen safety reasons for the most part.
Always use caution if you doubt if its an officer pulling you over. put your hazards on to let them know u pulling over, but drive to the next lighted area if u want (within reasonable distance).
Figured I would put this here. Congratulations Will, you deserve it, you were the true definition of a hero.HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A fallen Houston police officer was honored by the department Thursday. It comes more than six months after that officer gave his life for a citizen, alerting the man to an out-of-control vehicle that was headed for them both.
STORY: Fallen HPD officer remembered by family, friends
MORE: Got a story idea? Let us know!
Officer Kevin Will, 38, this morning received two awards posthumously, the Medal of Valor and the Life Saving Award. At the ceremony, Officer Will's widow and his three children -- one of them an infant born since his death -- were there to receive the awards on his behalf.
The officer was investigating a crash on the North Loop on May 29 when police say an intoxicated driver went around the police barricade. Officer Will had been talking to a witness who he warned in time for that witness to escape being hit. Officer Will was struck and killed.
There were 92 officers and civilians being honored today at the LD Morrison Training Academy on Aldine-Westfield in northeast Houston for varying degrees of service. But it is rare, the kind of sacrifice made by Officer Kevin Will.
"It is very rare. We reserved Life Saving Awards and especially Medals of Valor for only those special circumstances that meet the highest standards of our conduct," said one HPD officer at the ceremony.
As a side note, police did arrest the driver in this case. He is awaiting his next court hearing on a charge of intoxication manslaughter of a peace officer.

So I got a speeding ticket last month while going to Missouri. I was given a citation by a DPS officer and have opted to take defensive driving. My question is, when I mail in the form, do I choose NOLO CONTENDERE or GUILTY? It was a ticket for 9 over...guess I should have slowed down to the 10% they apparently allow.
yep, that is it. both terms pretty much mean the same thing, guilty or no contest which is pretty much saying guilty, lol
I've cleaned up this thread as much as I could.
Thanks for answering all the questions guys, please quote the questions when you guys reply that way it will be easier for me to clean up the unnecessary posts
For the rest that have traffic related questions, scan through the first few pages, your answers might have already been answered..
Do Constables handle most of the Traffic Citations? I've observed 9/10 times, it's a constable pulling someone over. Maybe it's just me.
But there are a couple of constables that work over in my area that routinely help me out on my calls. They monitor our air and will respond if back up isn't close or available, they also help out on a lot of accidents too.
So in short, they do everything I do, but their assignments can dictate what they do with the majority of their time.
Would you ever do a "Cops" show or know another officer who ever did the show?
Also what color uniform are you in? The blues or dark navy? Do you have a choice? Could you be all "tact'd" out if you wanted?
what happens (if anything)
If say your smoking marijuana in your backyard and the neighbor calls it in?
Do you guys come out? Ignore it?
I'd only do it if I could act like myself and that's not likely.
Oh yeah, I'm in light blue, probably going to dark navy soon. As for getting all tacticool, what you wear is dictated by your assignment and training.
if the school zone lights are flashing but school has let out for the holidays or their is no school. do you still have to slow to 20mph?
