It an exception, rather than a rule only if you/we allow it to be. As with any govt. entity you get what you/we deserve if you aren't willing to work at it.
Nothing changes on its own.
Especially in things like this. If we aren't willing to watch the watchers, why are we surprised when things go pear shaped?
Keeping a society running smoothly takes work. Work that we're all, apparently, unwilling to do.
I get so tired, as you may surmise, of hearing/reading that "we can't change it". We can if we're willing to do it, willing to do the hard work necessary to change it. Whatever "it" is. Bad laws. Bad politicians. Combinations of both of those.
They may not like the various laws they're asked to enforce, but that's in the job description. It's our responsibility to change the bad laws, not to complain about the enforceres, or not just complain.

Supporting a law and making a law are two different things. Only congress and the president make the laws.
Citizen‘s Grand Juries are the solution. Ever look up the purpose of a notary public before?
