This morning in Shul after Davening, I overheard shmoozing, when one of those involved was talking about the recent ticket crackdown in Lakewood and a ticket he got for being on his cellphone.
His comment went something like “I wish the police wouldn’t be so bored and instead focus on real crime.”
I didn’t say anything at the moment, but it bothered me too much not to say anything now.
What I should have said to him was, maybe if the town didn’t keep the police so busy with dumb accidents, there wouldn’t be a crackdown and the police could actually spend more time fighting crime!
I agree police should focus a lot on crime (like home and car burglaries etc), but we also need to let police do their jobs instead of them responding to another accident every 20 minutes (okay maybe that’s a bit exaggerated, but you get the point).
Just my two cents.
