Not only can the common citizen break the law, but also the people set to enforce the rules - the police.
There seems to be no shortage of examples of police breaking laws. However, the two most prominent stories that come to top of mind is the recent arrest of the Truro Police Chief who allegedly crashed his cruiser into a tree while drunk and Barnstable Police Detective Edmund Scipione who was arrested after taking a child on a horrifying 7.5 hour car ride, crashing and charged with OUI and child endangerment.
A story by the Cape Cod Times revealed that Truro Chief John Lundborn had a prior incident that could have led to criminal charges, he allegedly groped a woman in a Provincetown bar. However, he just got a slap on the hand in the form of an official apology.
On the other hand, in a great My View article on the Cape Cod Times aptly named "And 400 Cops Who Don't Drive Drunk," the point is made there are plenty of great cops who get bad wraps from a few apples with bad judgement. The work of being an officer is not easy.
Do you think police officers get special treatment when they err on breaking the law? Do you think police officers deserve special treatment for all their hard work? Do you think all is fair?
