ok before i go into this post i would like to note that i believe that cops (in general) do great work and dont get enough credit for what they do, i also think that most cops are grown up bullies that have huge power issues… with that said robert powell is a douche bag. this story came out, i believe, yesterday. ryan moat is a running back with the houston texans and he was on his way to the hospital to spend the remaining minutes of his mother in-laws life when he got pulled over for running a red light (totally understandable). during the encounter it has been reported that he pulled his gun when moats wife got out of the car to run into the hospital, but wait it gets better. after the wife went into the hospital powell actually tells moat that he could “screw him over” if his attitude didnt change and start cooperating with him. CLASSY!!! during the encounter moat said “My mother-in-law is dying! Right now! You’re wasting my time! I don’t understand why you can’t understand that.” the worst part about this story is that while the douche bag cop was writing him his ticket for running a red light his mother in-law died therefore robbing him of the last moments they could have had together. with all of that said i take my hat off to ryan moat for being the bigger man in this moment, i would have told the cop to F off and gone in.

below is the complete recording of the encounter. the best part is the end when the two cops are talking and dont even recognizing what just happened. “hey im going to get out of here and get something to eat”. DOUCHE BAG!!!
i wonder if this would have been a story if it wasnt a NFL player?
