If you are able to immediately show sympathy to the criminal who vitimizes you and are just as concerned with his rights as yours, perhaps even more so...then more power to you.

Well I'm sorry, but I don't think he should have even been given a ticket.

Any judge worth his/her salt would have dismissed it.

He ran a red light. He should have gotten a ticket, and that ticket should have been dropped by the court system when the circumstances came clear.

If someone shoots someone, and a cop sees them, the cop should arrest them no matter what. The justice system then decides the level and amount of guilt.

I think these guys are animals and I'm glad the guy chased him down. He still should have been charged as he endangered others.

If rule of law becomes dominated by feelings we're are in trouble as a society.

Well I can't debate that logic...

Yes, liberals can have a sense of justice, despite what FoxNews has told you... :D

Cops showed up to a house I was working on and kids were dragging a trampoline and pool out of the back yard. The cops were called because the kids were stealing property. The cops didn't arrest the kids or even tell the parents what happened. How awesome is that? Stealing isn't bad enough to tell the parents about. What message is that sending.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.

    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
