One of my co-workers basically got a boot and a few tickets on his car, and he said the infamous phrase, "why are the cops bothering me when they could be out stopping robberies or rapists?" Is that what we automatically think whenever we get pulled over or get in trouble for smoking some ganja or whatever? Does that little thing you do, small as it may be, mean less than any other crime? I bring it up because the other coworker in our little cube area has a dad that's a cop, and she got a tad pissed because she felt that cops can't just overlook anything, regardless. Have you ever had this mindset, or are all crimes created equal?
