You point out s few bad apples out of hundreds or thousands. The police make hundreds of millions of stops EACH YEAR. So WHO is being the richard. Again look in the mirror, maybe that's why YOU have problems during a police contact.

And all your examples all got away with murder. Seem their traffic stops didn't help prevent anything.

Yet they don't get arrested 3 times a day. So there in lies the problem with your argument. You just happened to get CAUGHT a few more times, and you didn't like it, and you probably took it out on the officer when you got stopped. Freedom is the about responsibility also. You get caught, be man/woman enough to admit it, and get over it. YOU broke the law. The officer is just doing their…

Who arrested him? Another Police Officer. You just proved my point. They hire the people that apply, can't know how they will do until they are hired. Plus with the Federal Lawsuits they have to be VERY careful who they disqualify before hiring, until they mess up. The liberal PC bullshit, causes a lot of the problems. BUT it is not up to the citizen during a stop to decide anything. The citizen…

So, let me get this right. You want a LAW, that says you can violate another law? If you feel so strongly, push to get rid of the laws YOU don't like. There are reasons, that you have no idea about, why the police would stop a vehicle for a "minor" traffic violation. Maybe it is your ATTITUDE that talks you into a ticket. Also, if the police officer ONLY writes the minor violation, when he gets…

Taxpayer funds used to defend treasurer on allegations

The state will pay three attorneys up to $200 per hour to represent Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford in a lawsuit filed by a former employee.

Edmund Michalowski accused Rutherford last month of sexually harassing him and forcing him to do campaign work on state time.

Rutherford, who is seeking the Republican nomination for Illinois governor, has denied the claims. He's said the accusations have made his campaign more difficult.

Documents from the attorney general's office say Robert Shuftan, Daniel Fahner and Bilal Zaheer have been appointed special assistant attorneys general. They'll be paid using taxpayer funds from the treasurer's office.

Rutherford spent almost $27,000 in taxpayers' money on investigations into the allegations. He initially said the findings would be made public, but reversed course after the lawsuit was filed.
