Most, not all, cops and firefighters have nothing more than a high school diploma or associates degree from a community college in a soft discipline, like criminal justice. They think this means they know the law better than we do. If they knew the law, they would know everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, and that's the basis upon which they hold people accountable to law. If not, ignorance would be a defense, and everyone knows it's not.
If most cops and firefighters were not fortunate enough to have their jobs, they would be mall cops, national guard members and volunteer firefighters with blue lights on their dashboards.
Real losers. Not all, but most. And they're destroying us.
