Offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby

Someone I consider to be like a second dad to me is a federal cop, I have plenty of friends I respect who are cops, and ive met plenty of officers I have a tremendous amount of praise for. Yet, the few times I’ve been pulled over in my life, I still am afraid

So, with seeing all those types of news stories consistently while growing up, It becomes TERRIFYING to be pulled over. Not having a clue if the person pulling you over is like the vast majority of officers who truly are heroes & good people or if its the small % who are vile.
