Irony and law enforcement.

Don't you find it ironic that the very people that are sworn to uphold and enforce the laws are the ones that most frequently violate them?

I watch every morning on my way to work, which is located near a trooper barracks, as the investigators and off-duty officers go flying by me on their way in while my cruise is set to 69 (favorite number you know). I make note of their vehicle makes and models, because if they ever cause an accident due to their reckless endangerment, I want to be prepared to stand in front of the judge and establish a pattern of behavior.

I mean, why are they in such a rush? Is work that great? Funny that I will get a ticket if I push it over 70, but none of their fellow officers or supervisors will. Yet they are causing more risk than I ever would, as half the time you never see them coming until they're on your bumper.

The answer is that law is a farce. The most recent example is the gov of NY, Spitzer. He was buying hookers after prosecuting other hookers.
Regarding speed limit infractions, yes, you're correct on principle, and these officers probably ignore other laws as well. But I wouldn't get too ruffled over something that minor.
