Caesar's wife, being not only not above reproach, but actually beneath contempt, then got hubby on her cellie and complained to him that she was being treated like a common criminal for actually, you know, committing a common crime. She tried to hand the phone to the officer who had stopped her, but he explained that he really didn't feel that talking to her husband was relevant to the current situation in any way. She was left with a ticket.
Here, however, is where the story gets good. Instead of manning up and accepting the consequences, Officer X from New Jersey goes and posts his tale on a special web page where, get this, people who are sworn to enforce the law go to complain in public about having the law enforced on them. Grown men whining about receiving tickets for fishing without a license, kayaking without a life preserver, speeding, and all the other little laws that are only supposed to apply to us peons. Obviously all the complainants are anonymous, which is odd for people who are so convinced that they were wronged somehow (unlike, say, one Trevor Putnam, who broke his internet anonymity when he actually was wronged by a police officer.) The only thing keeping my breakfast down is the fact that most of the pusillanimous jerks on that site seem to hail from NJ and NY, which are far from where I'm seated at the moment and therefore their ripe stench can't interfere with my digestion.
