Don’t you just love it when someones ego gets the best of them. I mean here we have the case of a judge and a cop. Two individuals that one would think would be educated and trained in the ways of law enforcement. Sometimes though ego and political bullshit get in the way of doing the right thing, just so someone can prove a point. This is exactly what’s happening to a forum member of the G8Board.com. Member “jackalope” drives a Pontiac G8 GT and was fined $85 for the use of illegally installed taillights. The driver then went to court and proved to the judge and the police officer that the lights in question were in fact factory installed and were approved by the DOT (Department of Transportation). Apparently though this mattered not to the Judge or the officer because they held up the enforcement of the fine.
We all know that police officers have it rough, they have a tough and thankless job that is for the most part, met with criticism by members of the general public. HOWEVER, when instances like this occur it does make you wonder if people really are getting a fair shake. The individual in question, although flying a bit off the handle, has done the right thing and taken the time to get the correct information to prove that he has done nothing wrong, yet the judge still upheld the ruling. Now, some may say that it’s just a small fine due to a taillight, but the fact is it’s much bigger than that. Take a look at the following thread and make up your own mind, then chime back in with your opinions as I’m very curious to know what you think.
