Absolutely agree. If a choice was given, do push-ups or go to jail, then not a bad judgment call.
There is a part of me that is apprehensive because this amounts to police taking law into the own
hands, and that gives me pause. But another part of me realizes that LEO's take law into
their own hands ALL DAY LONG--the can write a ticket or not, or jail someone or not based
on their opinion alone, and not the strict rule of law. I have been let go when I should have
gotten a ticket or gone to jail, and I have gotten tickets I didn't deserve, all based on
one LEO's mood, or perspective at the time.
It's a tough call, but I like the old school aspect of this, like the coach pf the high school team
punishing poor behavior with extra physical exercise.
