To the editor, It is amazing to me what the law considers dangerous and illegal actions versus what is lawful.
If you get caught with a seat belt off or driving uninsured, you can get a ticket. If you threaten someone you get, what? A warning, maybe. That is if they decide to look for you.
Which is more dangerous to society? A seat belt violator or a man who threatens his girlfriend, wife, child, parent, etc.?
Which would scare you more: an uninsured driver or an individual who threatened your love ones? Or perhaps even threatened you!
If the one being threatened was a cop or a politician, then the law would no doubt consider that an act of terrorism. However, if it’s just an upset, scared, out of her wits female, then what’s it called? A misunderstanding? That time of the month? An attitude adjustment?
We need to change our priorities. Our loved ones are more important than donut money for the cops and city hall.
