It sounds that you take the attitude of the police themselves. Perhaps if you experienced the justice of this county as I have, you would understand. However, this isn't possible. I personally have done nothing extreme to be ticketed. It has more to do with when you are driving. I have only gotten tickets between 10pm and 3am. Mine have been for speeding. How fast? No faster than people drive durring the day. So, the question asks, why. The answer is that the younger of the population are the makeup of the nighttime drivers. This means there is little impact on political matters, thus they can fuck you over as much as they desire. Secondly, if they ticketed durring the day, traffic would be backed up for hours and hours. Thirdly, they are only out every once in a while because if they were out all the time, people would obey the speed limit. The problem with this is that they would lose their endless source of money. If you disagree, you have not seen the world for what it is. If you choose to claim they are saving lives from drunk drivers, that is bullshit. I saw a nice PSA by M.A.D.D. that said "every year 17000 people die from drunk drivers. The numbers are staggering." Seriously, 17000 is not staggering... I can count that high. In fact, it's practically nothing considering how many people die from anything else. Much more people die from just driving without drinking. Stupid campain. You need to look into the true motives of society instead of listening to what society tells you. In the case of Fairfax County(and especially City) police, they are very egotistical and selfrighteous.
>"baby was just killed or his buddy got hurt."
If a baby gets killed, it's instantly on the 5 o'clock news. Don't here much about that. If his fellow officer gets hurt, that is on the news for days. So... your ideas are... fanciful.
> "It could be a good day ruined by some punk who thinks he shouldn't be given a ticket."
why do you assume I'm a punk or I even deserve the ticket?
> "So the next time he runs into you, and you're being a prick already[...]"
I am most certainly not a prick nor act as one. You are being very narrowminded
> "[...]he's not in the mood."
Excuse me?! if I'm "not in the mood" at work, I don't act like a jerk to people who indeed act like idiots or even jerks. I would be fired... but I guess the police are above that.
> "Next time you run into a cop, whether by chance or because you supposedly broke the law, be nice."
Respect is earned, not given blindly. In my book, they are lacking in respect.
> "He could've killed himself..."
Who are you to decide that people cannot kill themselves. I believe it is a very fundamental right but people like you take that right away. Thanks.
