The laws are made for the masses. Some are good laws, some silly. An officer is sworn to uphold and enforce them all, not pick and choose which ones he/she "likes". Its a difficult and ethically challenging dilemma at times. As far as your bubble wrap idea, remember, there is a warning that "this bag is not a toy." Its your govt, trying to protect you and others from tire smoking, wheelie riding, bubble wrapped hooligans.
Thanks for the laugh at the end
, Law enforcement should be much more personal, at least when it comes to fines, they should depend on the persons income. Do you not agree that that would be better ?
