You can bet that a civilian would be charged with vehicular homicide if he ran a red light or a stop sign, and it resulted in the death of an
innocent person who was obeying the law and minding her own business.
But when a cop or a fireman or an ambulance driver runs a stop sign and kills somebody, the system does a weird convolution and the official party
walks away with a suspension.
Oops! A cop ran over somebody's mother. Gee. Nobody's at fault. Tough break. Okay, show's over, everybody go home.
This has been going on for as long as I can remember. I've watched these cycles of law enforcement colliding with the citizenry for decades. Hell,
in Houston, back in the 60s and 70s, they used to announce the daily death toll in the morning news.
Thing is, the Executive Branch of Government is the ENFORCER, right, and the only effective enforcer is an unapologetic enforcer, right.
So, they have immunity to the law.
This isn't an American invention, okay?
This is the way it goes down all over the planet, every day, every year, every century, every millennium, in the human race. The ENFORCERS
kick ass and take names, they maintain order, and they keep it from turning into a melee, right.
So, we look the other way and we don't prosecute the ENFORCERS. They have their own code, they're supposed to police themselves.
But don't make the mistake of thinking this is an American problem exclusively.
