    Great example for the for us “ordinary” people. If you’re drunk and get into a fender bender, drive off. You might get away with it, or you’ll at the worst, you’ll have enough time to avoid sobriety tests. Way to go cop.

    Wow $100 bond I love how they left out that he was drunk when they picked him up at his house but not drunk on accident occurred. This Is why I don’t believe in our justice system where is this fair and balanced system were supposed to have ?

    I have a friend that works at a bar downtown she had to stay to after 2am last night to serve 4 GR PD police officers shot after shot for 5 starter hours the all 4 could barely stand up they all piled In a car together and drove on the happy way! so most not all but the 99% I have dealt with feel they’re above the law ! but we as sovereign citizens have the power to change this by taking our power back by uniting are communities to rely on the protection of your neighbors instead of relying on police officers that look at you like your paycheck not to mention Supreme Court ruled in court over 8 years ago that police are NOT required to protect the safety of citizens so why do we have them when you’re being pulled over for a traffic citation your constitutional rights are being infringed on learn your rights and use them before you lose them we can make this world a better place
