Look what happens you try to enforce equality

In Baltimore, the nefarious red light cameras are catching police officers too, but unlike many other cities, if the officer can't prove he or she was on their way to a call, the ticket sticks!   So what did the police do when they found they were being issued citations for breaking the laws they enforce?

Four Montgomery County police officers sued their department over speeding tickets and lost before the state's highest court, in a decision issued late last month.

So because these law abiding law enforcers want to stay on the good side of the law, they start obeying traffic signals right?

Some officers appear to have come up with creative ways to stay red-light-camera-shy. Last year, city police accused two officers of putting stolen license plates on their unmarked cars.

Oh... I guess not.  This kind of equal treatment needs to seep into Illinois a bit... here's hoping!
