When I was around 5, I went with my parents to downtown LA. My dad and I were waiting in the car for my mom while she was shopping at a store. We were apparently parked in a "no stopping anytime" zone (something I was unaware of at the time) and my dad ended up getting a traffic ticket. So then we just started driving in circles around the block, and I asked my dad why we couldn't just park. He said it was because he got a ticket. So I used to believe that anytime you get a ticket for any reason, you had to drive around the block a couple times.
You know those white signs that have the letters DUI crossed out and it says like "it kills, dont do it" or whatever? I always wondered why because it should be DDI and not DUI to my 6 year old logic. I always questioned what "it" was and why we cant dont do it.
When I heard the word "Interpol" for the first time, I figured out it was some very important organization chasing criminals, but I was sure the "pol" stood for "Poland", not "police". Since I'm Polish, I was beaming "See? The bad guys in America fear OUR police!"
I once explained to my grandma what to do if a police officer pulled you over. "Get out of the car and run real fast!" I think I watched a little too much "Cops"! lol
The cops would frequently stop our car and give my dad "tickets". When I was young, I thought they were tickets to the movies or something. So when the cops pulled my dad over, I would ask my dad what show we got tickets, too.
When I was a child, I thought "prosecuted" meant "executed". I'd go exploring with my dad or brother in "no trespassing" areas with "Violators will be Prosecuted" signs around. It was terrifying for me!
When I was about four years old, I was watching the show "Cops" on T.V. My older cousin, how was about 17, told me that bad kids went to "kids jail". I had a picture in my mind that in this kids jail, kids were given lots of cool and fun toys to play with. I think I got this idea from a dream I once had. Anyways, I believed this for about two years.
I used to believe that speeding tickets were tickets to Chuckie Cheese.I always thought that the policemen would stop drivers to hand them the Chuckie Cheese tickets.
i used to belive that when a policeman pulled you up on the side of the road he was going to kidnap all the little children and send them to the Barons castle from Citty Citty Bang Bang. and we would then have to be slaves to the technicians who clean and repaired the flying car
I thought it was very cruel to 'persecute' someone for trespassing....(Trespassers will be prosecuted).
My mother told me that it was against the law to cross busy streets until you were 12. One day I asked the D.A.R.E. officer that was giving a presentation to our 5th grade class if that was true. Needless to say, I was the laughing stock of Ms. Homburge's class for that whole year.
I thought that the police would hide places, waiting to arrest me if i even yelled at my sister. I was freaked out. And once i couldnt help it and got in a fight with my sister. I got yelled at by my parents but i satyed up all night for three nights freaking out about the police finding out and me spending the rest of my life in jail. After the third sleepless night, i told my sister i was sorry and went back into my room. Out loud i said (for the police to hear) "See, i apoligized, dont put me in jail please." adn that was taht.
When I was very little, I used to notice signs on the walls in public places that said "Restrooms" with an arrow pointing to where these rooms were. I believed that restrooms were rooms where people were taken to be put under arrest and the signs were there to help the cops find the right room. Imagine my fear when I told my mom I had to pee and she said "okay, let's take you to the restroom." I was so relieved when I didn't see a single cop in there!
OK, this isn't really a belief, but when my brother's friend's brother was little, he used to practice calling 911, and one day the phone was actually ON, so he heard the person say "911, what's your emergency?" and he got scared so he gave it to his brother (my brother's friend). The dispatcher said "911 what's your emergency" again, and my brother's friend answered "I lost my green ruler,". I am still wondering why they didn't track the call.
When I was like 2 or 3, I thought that when the cops pulled you over to give you a ticket, which I heard my mom talk about a lot, that they would actually tip your car over, right there in the road.
When I was little I called 911 just to see what would happen. Since it wasn't for an emergency I was sure that the police would track me down and I would have to spend life in prison. I had several sleepless nights waiting for a nock at the door and the police to take me away forever.
I used to believe that the "vice" in "vice squad" had the same kind of meaning as that in "vice president", so that a vice squad would be an alternate squad that would stand in for some main squad when the main squad was unavailable for any reason.
i used to believe that police hid in the bushes so if you did somthing bad you would get thrown into jail! hahahahahaha
I used to believe that if me and my sister were fighting in the car and there was a cop behind us, that he would pull the car over and arrest us.
I used to belive that FBI stood for Fish Buying In because when I went to camp they took a picture of a FBI car and put a fish beside it. In big blod letters by it they wrote Fish Buying In so I thought the fish were trying to become stock brokers or something. Then we were talking about it at school and my teacher ask me what it meant. I stood corrected.
