Spotsylvania County, Virginia (where I reside) is being featured on On Patrol: Live, from December 2 through Feb 4, 2023 (we have been extended for a while longer). On Patrol: Live is on Reelz and if you don’t have cable, then it is available on Philo. Philo is a digital streaming service, for just $25 a month.
New episodes coming on Fridays and Saturdays.
I’m going to change how I make posts about On Patrol:Live. I plan on shifting my focus more toward Spotsylvania being on the show and less on the show in general. The show is awesome, but it’s taking way too much time reviewing the entire three-hour episode, I from time to time will hight some interesting events.
Spotsy first appearance and only appearance is an hour into this episode, where Deputy Burnette is following an older white passenger van, also known as a clown car in these parts, due to the sheer number of Hispanics that are inside. Shockingly, only two passengers in the front and three in the back. The van that I follow out of my neighborhood, which just happens to be two houses down from mine, fills up with a good, 10 or more in the back of a cargo van with no seats.
The van pulls over into the WaWa parking lot (Mine Road & Falcon Drive). I feel really bad for Deputy Burnette, having to deal with this. In the entire van, no one spoke English and he had a very difficult time dealing with them and the language barrier. I know that some will state that he can use his cell phone and a translation app, but many jurisdictions do not authorize that for use.
Deputy Burnette trips repeatedly to get the guy to follow the instructions for the field sobriety tests and the breathalyzer, but the guy is too drunk and then there is the language barrier.
This incident really highlights the problem in this area of Virginia. We see a ton of Hispanic drivers, who do not understand the rules (and laws) of the road. This is likely due to them not having a license in the U.S. We also see things like a 5-passenger vehicle with 6-8 people in it.
