I Got 5 On It: Ways you, yes you, might be a criminal
Everyone in America is a criminal. It’s just a matter of whether or not law enforcement decides to investigate you.
One civil rights lawyer estimates the average American commits three felonies per day due to the vague wording in many laws. That being said, I thought I’d put together a list of things that recently caught my eye to help prove that point.
1) Speeding on the way to Las Vegas
If you’ve driven from Phoenix to Las Vegas you know about US 93. It’s a long, straight highway that begs you to speed. OK. It begs me to speed. But I try and keep my speed 10 miles over the posted 65 mph limit. The key word is try. Not everyone follows that guideline. If you’ve made the drive, you’ve probably seen cars speed past you pushing 100 mph. Well, the Arizona Department of Public Safety knows this. So they put an airplane in the air to catch speeders.
