When those paid to enforce the law are made exempt from the law, by definition the “law” has ceased to be a “law” and is now a mere “whim.”
“Whims” can make for a fun weekend, but they necessarily cause those without a badge to resent the badges, refuse to cooperate with the badges and otherwise make trouble. This in turn causes the badges to retaliate and the Cycle of Dysfunctional Government is made complete.
According to the NYPD Commissar, NYPD officers are even trained to break the law:
“Police Commissioner William Bratton said he’s ‘not overly concerned’ about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s official vehicles being caught on camera by CBS 2 breaking numerous traffic laws.
Speaking to reporters Friday after his weekly meeting with the mayor, Bratton defended the security detail, which is operated by NYPD detectives, saying the officers did ‘what they’re trained to do.’ “
