Wow....what a bitch!

He showed a bit of poor judgement.Nothing major.

If she had said "no" & he became persistent,that would be different.

That note wasn't aggressive at all...

(She's just sue happy & peeved that she got a ticket)

I agree that it's a little creepy.....

Like I said,he showed a little poor judgement. When someone is in a position of authority,they need to be REALLY politically correct (I hate that term)

But it seems fairly innocent.

When you're truly being stalked ,you KNOW it....there's no two ways about it & it's in your face scary.

If am honest with myself....I may feel differently if the note was left on my daughters car......

That he tracked her to her apartment is really creepy. But even if he were handsome and adorable, I would go out with him if he gave me a ticket.

But sue him? That's ridiculous!

Funny, if she accepted his date, the fact that he "tracked her down" would have been deemed romantic and not creepy.

Bottom line...dude is a cop and he had resources and used them. She didn't find him attractive and wanted to get him back for the ticket. Even Stephen Hawking could figure this one out. wink

Romantic..creepy...stalking..perhaps all of them..All I know is...where I work...you can track anything anyone does on a computer and officers and civilians alike are told up front..improper use of this knowledge is grounds for immediate discipline and possible dismissal.

Agree with everyone tho..to sue...craazzyyy...

This is hilarious. I don't see how it is that he had to use any resources to "track her down", unless she lied when he looked at her drivers license and asked if that was her current address . . . which he then wrote on the ticket because that's what they do. I also think it was a rather passive approach to leave the note on her car instead of right on her front door. If she was really afraid, her attorney would have had her file a complaint with internal affairs so they could look into it. crazy

Right...he used the ticket as a resource to find her. He ran her license in the first place to check out the address and who she was to write the ticket. Technically, he didn't know where she lived unless he used the info on the ticket to find her. Track her down, I don't see it as this, but I guess one could...but find her, yes. And the ticket was his resource.

I see it as passive too and no big deal. She was speeding, he was doing his job and all he wanted was a date. All she had to do was ignore the note.

Wendy, I just edited my post! I MEANT to type "Even if he were handsome and adorable, I wouldn't go out with him" ! Not I WOULD! Eek!

Sorry about that.

I would NEVER go out with a cop who gave me a ticket, even if he were Jon Bon Jovi. I'd really be angry.

Eric, I could forgive.

Darlene not even Jon Bon Jovi? Oh yeah that i could make an exception for along with his cop partner Eric. LuvLove

I would be creeped out big time on how this guy found me if i was her, especially being in his line of work. Most cops i know would not risk their badges or careers.

I got what you meant. smile

I was just saying how easy it is to re-define this senerio.

Example: One time I met this guy performing in a casino, he saw me in the showroom and approached me after the show and later he dropped me off at my motel (yeah, at 23, sis and I did motels). Anyway, he saw me go to the second floor as he left. The next day he found our room by knocking on almost every door. He asked me out and I said yes. He was really cute and I found it so adorable that he went to all that trouble to find me again. HOWEVER, if he was someone that I didn’t want to see again, I would have been creeped out that he found me.

I think the young (?) lady (?) over reacted. Men are supposed to show some initiative and make the first move. Maybe things have changed too much since I was a young woman.

There's a heck of a lot of difference between harrassment and asking a girl out on a date once.

She should have said "no thank you" if she didn't want to go out with him and left it at that.

I remember going to discoes in the 80's and seeing a guy work up the nerve to cross the crowded room and politely ask a gal to dance. Some girls would look the guy up and down and coldly say "no" in a tone of utter contempt when a polite "no thank you" and perhaps a little white lie "my feet need a rest" would have been kinder.

Things have gotten really crazy.

I agree Belle!

To me, a gal drops the hints and the guy takes them and goes for it. I have always believed a man takes charge in asking out the woman on a date. It's like: He's the boy...that's what they do. I'm the girl, I wait to be asked.

It makes sense to me. I'm old fashioned that way. Other women can be more aggressive and it might be wise for them to make the first move on asking for a date, that's up to them. But if a man asks, it is not harrassment...we KNOW what harrassment is. No wonder men are afraid to pursue a gal anymore. Damned if the do, damned if they don't...in some cases of course. smile
