I wish that I could agree that this behavior is isolated to one small Texas county. However, no matter where you go in the U.S. ( or World), you will
find SOME corrupt, jack-booted nazi's patrolling the streets with a badge.
Not all LEO's are bad people. Most have a desire to make their community better. They do not make the laws, they are paid to enforce them.
The law is the law. Nothing more and nothing less. We do not have to agree with them, but we have to abide by it or suffer the consequences. 5
miles over the speed limit is still speeding. Some cops enforce it a little more harshly than others.
I am not claiming to be a perfect law abiding citizen, I am actually quite the opposite. However, I know that if I am involved with illegal activity
and get caught, there are consequences. All citizens understand this. Excepting those who have not formed yet "mens rea", those who are retarded,
and those who are mentally ill.
If you do not like the law, don't blame the cops. They do not write it. They enforce it.
I would again like to point out that we need a better system of policing the LEO's and holding them to a higher accountability than the average
