I thought you said the law was powerless. Powerless to *help* you, not punish you.

Also could that simpsons line be more perfect? It's like it was written for this specific instance. I guess it's just such a perfect view in how policedom operates.

If government employees can't get out to do the job to help people, they can at least make damn sure that nobody else is out helping. The real secret is that they want things to go badly. It's the same reason fireman are refusing to accept volunteers to put out raging wildfires. Because the worse things are for ordinary people, the more they can argue that they are underfunded. Yeah we'd like to ahve a cop out there to help with traffic, but if you want that, we'll need more money. So if somebody else can just show up and alleviate traffic then less people will demand more funding to the cops. The worse the fires rage, the easier it is for fireman to argue they need more money for trucks/men/equipment. I'm not saying every individual person thinks that way, but the union itself thinks that way. The unions are like parasites leaching off the blood of their hosts. Maybe not exactly parasites because they are somewhat reciprocal, but there only concern is to increase the size of the host and thus the amount of blood they can get, regardless of what is best of anybody else, including the host.

What a bunch of cocksuckers. Limited manpower? The cop who issued the ticket could have directed traffic instead.

Exactly. Which is what makes it look so bad. Person 1 calls and says there is really bad traffic and people aren't following any kind of protocol, he's afraid there will be an accident, the police say sorry, there's nothing we can do about it, we don't have the man power. Person 2 calls and says, never mind some guy has started directing traffic and the problems have cleared up, oh well we'll drop everything and get right on that.
