Your tax dollars at work.
I wonder why South Burlington Police Chief Trevor Whipple NEVER allows citizens who are clearly being harassed to have access to the dash camera video of the traffic stop? It's a public record and it's me supposedly "breaking the law." So let's see it!
Remember, there are two ways to enforce the law when it comes to local law enforcement:
You can enforce the law by earning the public's respect, such as giving them a warning if they have a clean DMV history and no priors, or you may enforce the law by busting as many people as you can, earning the public's disrespect, justifiable fear and loathing.
The choice is yours, just as much as it is theirs, but the "Justice Vacuum" exists in both Burlington and South Burlington, Vermont and the following document is an example of that sad fact.
Its not WHAT laws you enforce but HOW you enforce them and the state of Vermont has this well hidden history of police misconduct which for some reason has been obscured from the public's eye.
I mean lets face it, if you're not the one being harassed why bother? "Let them do their job" right?
This is the "old breezer" or to suggest that wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars of your and my tax money by selectively harassing peaceful tax payers just because you disagree with them, share a different opinion or need someone to target is an example of Pure Vermont Bigotry through and through and this is what you're looking at right here.
