@bigdog that makes little to no sense to me. How can you punish citizens but be exempt from the law? An eye for an eye, hand for hand?? But I guess if an off duty cop gets pulled over for DUI he is taken home, but an average citizen is taken to jail? Man that makes a lot of sense to me now

I find it hard to say "younger kids have no respect for the law." I see ppl being caught for making illegal drugs on here all the time and they're normally older. Also, it's hard to ban something when I've noticed many law officers in Ohio and WV that drive and talk/text while on duty. I've even taken a few pics. Can't be a hypocrite, nobody likes a hypocrite :)

Sadly, the way our society is today, if its illegal more people want to try to get away with it than follow the law. People, especially the younger folks, have little to no respect for the law anymore.
