Video: The $100 traffic ticket

posted at 2:01 pm on December 13, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

People are quick to criticize the police, and rightly so, when they act in abusive and/or illegal ways, but it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that those are exceptions and not the rule.  Most people who go into police work do so in order to serve and protect their communities, and do so quietly, unobtrusively, and bravely — and not just a few give their lives in doing so each year.  Occasionally, we get a glimpse of that commitment through a random act of kindness, and CBS News reports one such incident from Plano, Texas:

When 25-year-old Hayden Carlo was pulled over for an expired registration sticker by a Plano police officer, he told him without hesitation – he had no excuse.

“I said there’s no explanation for why I haven’t done it, except I don’t have the money….it was either feed my kids or get my registration done.”
The cop gave Carlo a ticket…and something else.

“I opened it up and there’s a 100 dollar bill. I broke down in my car what else could I do?,” Carlo told CBS DFW.

The officer never told anyone about the $100 gift. But Carlo’s grandfather, Billy McIntire, was so moved by the kind gesture he wrote a letter to the department.

“I get emotional when we talk about this type of thing,” McIntire says. “You just don’t find that many officers who would do this type of thing.”

We write about a lot of bad news. It’s good to offer something uplifting along with it, especially in this Advent season.

That was a wonderful thing for the police officer to do! This makes my heart feel good for people to be kind to those in need. And American’s, for the most part, are the most generous bunch on the planet. And I think they won’t stop even if the ‘charity’ deduction gets the boot by bho/team!

Our home gives and can’t take a penny for doing so on our taxes.

I wish people would stop bringing to attention anonymous acts of kindness. They were done anonymously for a reason.

I say this because I have done things like this before, paying for somebody’s meal at a restaurant without them knowing, dropping off food, ANONYMOUSLY. It would tick me off to be in the spotlight for it.

I’m sitting here in CA with a 2002 Volvo S 60 and a 2004 WRX (I have to drive “liberal” cars because I’m in enemy territory, so save your comments….plus I like ‘em).

My fees were $144.00 and $137.00 for these cars both with 145K on them.

My husband got stopped for speeding and the cop let him go without a ticket because he said he liked the Romney/Ryan stickers on our car.

We should respect this officer’s wish to remain anonymous. We don’t want other people expecting similar handouts from him by offering similar stories when they’re pulled over. Honor the deed but leave him unidentified.

Shaughnessy on December 13, 2012 at 2:12 PM

That’s nothing. After that jerkoff Bill Ritter got his way here in Colorado, my registration fees went from $35 for a used car to over $700 for a new car. It drops every year based on the value but I’m still paying over $300 for a car built in 2008. And that’s just my car. My wife’s which was built in 2005 is still over $150. I couldn’t believe having just moves from California that my registration fees in Colorado now exceed those in California.

A good story for this time of year.

moc23 on December 13, 2012 at 2:24 PM

Next we will hear the officer was disciplined or fired. Or, some minority offender will come forward and claim this officer was “too rough” with them, and obvious sign of Racism.

echosyst on December 13, 2012 at 2:24 PM

I don’t know if the cop was a Christian, but I strongly sense that he was… merely because this was a perfect illustration of Christian charity. We are not to neglect our duties (writing the ticket) in order to help others; we should help others alongside our duties.

This is what atheists don’t understand about the God we serve. Yes He is love and compassion… but he is also justice. Even though He loves us, the price for our sins must still be paid… He just provided the payment through His Son Jesus Christ.

The only question is who will accept the gift and who will not.

dentarthurdent on December 13, 2012 at 2:32 PM

I hope the officer’s good deed is contagious and HA readers that can afford to give a little find a way to do so this season. I know it encourages me.

My husband was once pulled over around 2009 when Tea Party fever was heating up. He was taking our daughter to the doctor and was running late and speeding. The officer asked my husband what he did for work, and my husband told him.

the officer responded by saying something like well you are taxpayer and trying to take care of your daughter, I’ll let it pass, but slow it down.

I have never been lucky enough to avoid a ticket. I did help my husband avoid one once by sticking my pregnant belly out as much as I could so the guy would cut him some slack. It worked.

I wish I could have been pulled over by a cop like this.
I got a ticket on my 20th birthday for doing 71 in a 55 (many years ago), on an empty highway in the middle of the night and the cop said “gee if I had noticed it was your birthday, I would let you off with a warning, too bad, sign here.”

Most people who go into police work do so in order to serve and protect their communities

I disagree. Some precious few police officers were drawn to law enforcement for that reason. The majority were attracted to the profession because they like having authority over others.

In my experience, people seem to feel about the police in a way that’s relative to the amount of time their own sketchy behavior brings them into proximity/interaction negatively with the police.

The more ya misbehave, the more ya tend to have an unfavorable view of the cops.

I’m just saying – people who generally ‘keep their nose clean’ generally also have a favorable view of cops, and those that don’t, well… don’t.

letget on December 13, 2012 at 2:52 PM

I sort of agree with those saying this should’ve been kept under wraps, for the officer’s sake…he obviously didn’t want a big deal made (which is why the bill was with the ticket, versus him making a show of whipping out his wallet or whatever). Some people just do things like this simply to brighten up someone else’s day.

Still, maybe publicizing it will lead to others doing the same thing.

So I guess all those parts of the Bible where Christ teaches us the things we should and should not do in this life really don’t matter and can be safely ignored then? Because if you’re saved through grace alone, then it really doesn’t matter whether you give to the poor or hold up convenience stores, does it?

My wife was a (college campus) police dispatcher all the way through college, so we associated with a lot of cops for many years – college, city, and county levels. And I’ve worked a lot of employer panels with several cops (state, county and city) at the local military bases. Most of them are really good people.

But I’ve also known some bad ones, and some on power-trips.
Overall not much different spread than any other career field.
And I’ve had my fair share of tickets over the years – and only had to deal with one who was a total @sshole – and I fought him in court over the ticket and won. All the others I just paid because I was in fact guilty.

I’m surprised the liberals here are not advocating elimination of auto registration fees. How are the poor supposed to pay these outrageous fees and get to their slave-wage jobs so they can feed their families? This is a regressive tax.

I have to say I have twice been ticketed for expired registration. And it was a $100 ticket, while the annual tag fee in PA is $35. I am terrible about remembering to renew. So are a lot of people, which is why the cops are looking for it. Easy money for the state.

sesquipedalian on December 13, 2012 at 3:26 PM

Heh!! I live in Plano…..
I can honestly say – the cops here are like that.

The neighbor that lives behind me is a grumpy old man
and use to call the cops when my kids would hit his fence
with a ball or a ball would go in his yard, etc….

After a summer of about 5 calls the cops finally brought the
old guy over and asked him what were my kids doing this time???

I think they shot a few baskets in his hoop…..

The cops wrote down his name and address and said for him not
to call them again unless his house was on fire. The cops winked at me
and told the kids something to the effect of go play somewhere else.

Have not heard from them for a few years now.

So I’ve got to ask, why is the nice police officer wandering around with hundred dollar bills in his pocket?

NahnCee on December 13, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Why is that any of your business? I always have a few hundreds tucked away in my wallet for emergencies.

When I was doing employer panels at the military bases, I regularly did them with the head recruiter for Colorado State Patrol – Trooper Mo. He was hilarious – great recruiter.
“I’m here to talk to you all about a career in sales and customer service. We at CSP have about 300 different products that you will have the opportunity to go out and sell to the public. And we will even pay you a full salary to attend our 22 week sales academy. Once you get out on the road, you don’t even have to make cold calls because people out there will do all kinds of things to get your attention just so they can buy one of your products. And despite what you may have heard, we do NOT have a quota. You’re allowed to sell as many of these products as you can…”
The guy was great – but the rest of us on the panel always insisted he had to introduce himself last because he was such a tough act to follow.

Typical liberal. Making claims in the absence of any supportable data.

Makers…pay for their car registrations on time without excuses.

Takers…don’t.

Nothing like an act of kindness to stir the hornets nest of godless reprobate leftists.

people taking care of each other negates their need to depend upon government.

Like some others said above, Plano is a pretty relaxed nice town in Dallas. Still surprising to see a cop give up his hard earned money. I am trying to figure out a time when cops ever gave me even a moderate degree of returned respect when I have gotten pulled over, it just is not coming to me, and I have been pulled over well over 100 times in my life). So this guy was one of the FEW for sure.

Wow! And I thought I was borderline bad for getting about 6 tickets my entire life.
