stupid cops

Sometimes I wonder whether, in the end, the police punish anyone but the innocent. Smart criminals know how not to get caught; that is why they remain criminals. It is the people who break a law in some desperate attempt of self-preservation, who otherwise do no wrong, who are the ones unlucky enough to get caught and persecuted. It is easier to punish the innocent than to punish the guilty. At any given moment, any one of us is breaking any handful of the thousands of idiotic laws on the books, and if some expert in law enforcement analyzed all our actions throughout a day, any of us could probably be found to break dozens of laws for which we might be arrested. Hence the crackwhore gets arrested while the high-priced call-girl lives it up; the guy who just needs to forget gets busted for possessing heroin while his supplier kicks it in Miami half the year; a pathetic 9-to-5 employee who lifts a fifty out of the cash register gets reported while the career thief who works only a few hours a month sits comfortably on the profits from his latest score.

And don't even get me started on how many assholes get by because of mere political correctness...
