There exists, in all government institutions, on all levels, a double standard. The state grants themselves the ability to break laws that non-government people would go to jail for.
Exemptions are granted for them and their friends while the constituency keeps eating cow dung and grinning.
Today’s government is getting so corrupt and careless that they do not even try to keep their ‘above the law’ mentality a secret anymore. Police, while definitely at the bottom of the state totem pole, are becoming notorious for their frequent abuses of power.
After seeing these atrocities on a daily basis, finding out that cops routinely speed in non emergency situations to spend their tax payer funded salaries on donuts, should come as no surprise.
However, the more people that see this corruption the better. That is why we are constantly trying to point out that the emperor has no clothes!
