Inspired by a conversation today with a friend who is a retired cop: if you got pulled over while playing NWA's f the police really loud, would you shut it off or not?
I turn off the radio while on the road phone, talking to passengers, ordering drive through, and when pulled over. Being a decent person requires it.
Turn anything down, but you would never catch me listening to that. I support our 👮♀️👮
I turn off any music playing, makes it easier for both of us. Just seems polite.
We were talking about Chris rock's comedy video "how not to get shot by the police" one of the scenes in it is someone playing that song while being pulled over. I asked him if that really ever happened to him. He said yes.
Thanks for the clarification.
Wouldn't be playing such crap
Not likely to ever happen to me.
I never heard the song, but it doesn't sound like one I would play. Yes, I would definitely turn it off.
I don't drive, but if I did: If I were pulled over by the police and I were playing *anything* loudly on the radio, I would turn it off, so that I would be giving my full attention to the police, and so that they and I could hear each other clearly. I think to leave the thing blaring loudly, no matter what is playing, would be both rude (rudeness also indicating stupidity) and dumb (since you really *couldn't* hear them well, or vice versa).
In actuality, if I did drive, I wouldn't be playing anything that loudly anyway, since it would be hazardous to safe driving - wouldn't it? Blocking noises from inside or outside the car that might be warnings of danger? I'd probably be listening to an audiobook, if I were alone. When I'm a passenger with other people, we usually talk, with fairly quiet music, if any at all.
Yes. No matter what you think about police, they have more ways to fuck with you than you to mess with them. Making them angry is not a good idea.
I would. Regardless of what's playing, I would likely turn it off.
That's what I would do, but my friend said that he's been on traffic stops where people didn't, which is bad no matter what you're playing, but that's probably the worst thing you could be playing.
Turn the radio down no matter what is playing.
