Texas has made it official. “Equal protection under the law” is out the window.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got no problem with whacking on drunk drivers a bit, frankly I think we ought to just have a “drunk driver season” and issue bazookas…
What I have a problem with is official state policy and precedent now elevates government employees in status above the citizens they serve.
A drunk driver injures or kills a citizen? Well, that’s a bad thing. But if that same drunk driver injures or kills a government employee, well, they’re better than citizens so the penalty is higher.
We’ve always known this. Now it’s policy.
Hmmm…I wonder if it’s too late to become part of the elite regime?
