Should government employees and/or officials be allowed to break the law?


A friend of mine recently received a ticket. In the process of producing the case against my buddy three county employees violated five state laws. These violations are being ignored, because they involve the Sheriff himself, fellow officers, and two county employees. Should this be allowed? It is my opinion that we need oversight outside of the county judicial system.

    You are so right, we recently had a speeding police officer crash into a (thankfully) vacant home and another flip his cruiser over while speeding. NEITHER were on their way to a call!

    I feel I must point something out. If you ate chicken on Tuesday (or another such silly law) I don't think execution is appropriate. Ignorance of a law should not be an excuse, but some laws should be excused. Well said, by the way.

    kwade, there is a law on the books in Arkansas that allows a man to discipline his wife on the steps of the county courthouse with switch no bigger in diameter than his thumb. I always wondered if there was a husband brave enough to make the attempt.
