I am not talking about murder here, but the little things. Parking in a No Parking zone, the NFA (not that I would), and so on and so forth. I think there are many things that are illegal, but not immoral.

I asked in GD, and I know you guys don't always get over there, so I am going to post it here and see how this poll result compares. Thanks guys!

No, it is not always wrong to break the law. That's why we have a court system, and on lesser violations/infractions, the beat cop has discretion. I always ask if the person had a reason for breaking whatever code/law I'm about to write a ticket for.

Jury nullification is part of the publics method of dealing with unjust laws.

Civil disobediance (where o where is my dictionary!!) is another method.

Prohibition is a fine example of a law that had poor public support, was widely ignored and was finally repealed.

No, it is not, which is why officers have been given discretion.
