    Wow. So a group of judges and aspiring judges said it's okay if a cop will not write a ticket to someone based on the cop's perception that said person is a judge OR could be related to a judge. Yup...no conflict of interest or hint of impropriety at all......yikes. I wonder if we can research and pinpoint the exact moment the NYS Judicial Branch implemented it's "Just-Us" system, to replace the justice system?
