Here's some stuff to "interpit":
1. Police there, mainly guys who make the Rizzo's Raiders goon
squads look like the Vienna Boy's Choir, have a funny way of
deciding for themselves what's "legal" "law" and "justice",
and they are backed by the court system, which pretty much
supports their every move, with the possible exception of highly
publicized cases, or if they wind up running into somebody richer
2. While for the layman "ignorance of the law is no excuse" the
LE community in NJ, the very people whose bread and butter is
"upholding the law", (and I use that term VERY loosely) not only
DON'T KNOW THE LAW, they are regularly excused for it, by,
(you got it) the court system.
3. These fine folk spend a high proportion of time sucking donuts
and coffee, and giving out speeding tickets to LACs, who can't figure
out why keeping drugs out of their kids school system, or monitoring
suspicious or dangerous aliens(for instance) isn't a higher priority
to the police than driving up their car insurance rates.
4. They, however, while being entrusted "to protect and serve" the
public, take offense at what they deem "low priority" or "unnecessary"
calls from LACs requesting their help, and usually take at least
45 to 90 minutes to respond to any non-emergency, and many times
come out and start a fishing expedition which results in the LAC being
fined or inconvenienced.
...maybe the police and court system in NJ need to go to one of
those law seminars, and read Andy's book. Because Justice in NJ
isn't what you think it is, unless you have a 600$ an hour attorney
to make it so.
So do yourself a big favor, and take it from somebody who has
A LOT of boots on the ground experience in this area.
You will probably, for your own good, want to stay out of NJ.
Because it's not whatever it is in New Hampshire that you think
