One of the stupidest things that I have ever seen. Police should ignore traffic violators, speeders, and every other violation that occurs. Funny thing, 20+ years of law enforcement experience has taught me that people that violate traffic laws are also the same ones that have no problem violating every other law. People that don’t respect simple things like traffic laws usually have no problem violating other laws if they think it benefits them.

The mayor and police chief are spineless and do not care about law enforcement. They are politicians and want to suck up and stay employed at their easy jobs.

You’re exactly right. And here’s how I can prove it. How many traffic laws do cops break to pull someone over for a minor traffic violation? Half the time they drive like maniacs even when they’re going nowhere specific. When they’re going after someone who looked both ways and barely rolled through a stop sign, lookout. Roscoe P. Coltrain is in hot pursuit.
