Now I've Heard Everything

Every once in awhile I read some strange news that makes me stop and at the very least shake my head in disbelief. This week, it was a cop who gave himself a ticket for a driving infraction. Not only did he write himself a ticket to the tune of $ 235 American, but he docked himself four points on his driving record. Check out the story here.

I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on the story. The way in which the story is reported, it is ambiguous as to if this police chief unconciously broke the law through his carelessness or if this was a planned attempt at bring to light that police officers "do good things every day," as the officer later states. Has this officer really done a good deed if this was planned? Does this sort of action even constitute a "good thing" even if it was not planned?

Very midwest. Of course, he wrote himself his own ticket. (eyes rolling)

JBelle, I had the exact same reaction.
