Posted by Bailey Boat: Yep, we're too stupid to read, too stupid to figure anything out for ourselves, we're just the stupid public. And some cops wonder why we don't particularly care for them. When the "force" treats us as being stupid and ignorant, that tends to be the attitude returned.
And that is somehow intended as a meaningful response to the helpful suggestion, "....look at the officer’s credentials. Just keep in mind that you don't know what an authentic police ID card for that agency looks like. (I don't know what official ID cards for the surrounding agencies look like, either.)" ??

When I explain the exact ordinance I want enforced and the cops wants to know if I have a law degree it tends to infuriate educated people.
Individual citizens may report suspected violations, but it is up to others to decide when and how to enforce ordnances.

You don't have to be a lawyer to READ the local ordinances and laws.
Reading local ordinances and laws is one thing, but understanding the ways in which individual ordinances fit into a tapestry of others and of state laws, knowing the case law, and knowing how a municipality enforces those ordinances are something else.
