I am not holding my breath for MADD to mention any of these cases

Radley Balko has a fully dispiriting run-down of police getting caught and let off after driving drunk. Any society which holds the powerful to lower standards than the rest of us is not one I want to be a part of.

Thematically related, did you hear about the State Department diplomatic security officer who hit a pedestrian in DC last week, breaking his knee, and then had the MPD deliver a jaywalking ticket to the victim in the hospital for a location four block from where the accident occured, and had his boss file a false press release about the incident? Because that also happened.
