Police Officers Think the Worst of You in Denver, Colorado

Police Officers will think the worst of you and will not hesitate to charge you with a crime in Denver, Colorado. When we were children, we were taught Police Officers were there to help us. Well, maybe they do help elementary school children find their way home. In the adult world, however, “Peace” Officers want to look good and get promoted by making arrests and charging people with crimes. Although they will act friendly and nonthreatening in order to get information from us, they are not your friend. Arresting someone for a serious crime like Colorado Sexual Assault on a Child or Colorado Burglary wins them brownie points with supervisors and coworkers.

Jefferson County Sheriff Deputy Unfair Treatment

I remember an incident when a man went crazy, ripped the windshield wiper off my car in a road rage incident, and threw rocks directed at my car with his friends. The Jefferson County Sheriff Department Deputy who responded told me (the victim who called 911 for help), that he’d have to charge me with a crime, too, if I did not agree to the deputy only charging the other guy with a minor violation. Why? Because after being stopped, the other guy was found wearing a “Denver Firefighter” T-shirt and said I cut him off in traffic. That is all it took for the deputy to go easy on the guy who attacked my car. You decide why the deputy did not want to charge a firefighter with Colorado Reckless Driving, Criminal Mischief, and Reckless Endangerment the same as he would charge you and me.

Douglas County Sheriff Deputy Mindset

Since we know the Police are not after the truth, but are after a chance to make an arrest (and promotion), limit your contact with them and don’t call the Police unless absolutely necessary. Even then, remember, the Douglas County Sheriff Deputy will be evaluating you as a possible defendant – even if it is obvious to you that you are the victim of a crime.

Defense Attorney in Adams and Arapahoe County

The first secret to winning a Colorado criminal case for serious matters like Sexual Assault, Theft or DWAI / DUI, is to know your opponent’s mindset. The first opponent you are likely to meet will be wearing a Colorado police or sheriff uniform. Don’t give them any statement which will later be used against you. When you are contacted by police for crimes like Harassment or Domestic Violence in Adams or Arapahoe County, remember, they are looking for some reason to arrest and charge you with a crime.
