Radley Balko’s criminal law post today, Law Enforcement and DWI , provides a roundup of a national hall of shame on this unsurprising topic of police and their own DUIs/DWIs. What might be surprising to some, though, is even when caught falsifying evidence, zilch happens to them. This is where traditional “law and order” conservatives need to bond with conservative/libertarians. The former need to recognize that they are inconsistent at best when they create a “cop exemption” from their usual accurate view of government union thugs who happen to occupy other taxpayer draining jobs in the exponentially growing public sector.
The comments by Radley’s generally intelligent group of readers are amusing and enlightening.
