The hypocritical nature of police has become downright laughable.

The 'do as I say and not as I do attitude' is the all to familiar tendency within the law enforcement ranks.

I can speed, but you cannot. I do not wear my seat belt, but I will write you a ticket and claim that you owe me money, if you do not wear yours.

If you do not ride in the bike lane, I will write you a ticket, even if my illegal parking job prevents you from doing so.

Below are 12 pictures of this routine hypocritical characteristic put together by tumblr user, copsinbikelanes. 

Fret not folks, as they were probably ALL on "official police business."

Hoyt and Schermerhorn. An old submission from an anonymous (but very helpful) user which had gotten lost in my inbox. September, 2013. The two cars are both multiple-time offenders; this is the eighth appearance for car number 2242 and the sixth for 3996.Who will have the dubious distinction of being the first to appear ten times? One of these two vehicles? Car 4255? Van 1958? I will have to come up with some sort of prize for the winner (loser) of this sorry race. Hit me up via e-mail or Twitter if you’ve got any suggestions!May 28, 2014
