The One That Thinks He's Guilty. . .

The law is the law. It may be an ass, wrong, misguided or just plain stupid, but it is the law and I'm not going to break it, mainly because I don't want to give them the opportunity to get their hooks into me.

Doesn't mean I won't fight to overturn or revise a law which I think is unjust or ill thought-out. Neither does it mean I support people who break the law, even the really stupid ones.

That may change if laws get any sillier.

Regardless, sometimes (and just sometimes, occasionally, rarely) you can't help but develop an appreciation, respect and admiration for people who really couldn't give a fuck about the law and demonstrate it in grand style:

A driver has confounded Swiss police by committing 15 traffic violations in just over 10 minutes, officials say.

The 47-year-old initially raced past an unmarked police car in heavy rain at 160 km/h (100mph) before weaving close to other cars and the road's kerb.

The serial offender clocked up further offences for speeding, driving on the hard shoulder, running a set of red lights and failing to stop for police.

When finally pulled over by St Gallen police, he failed a drugs test.

As always, Al-Jabeeba have to try to haul their bloated carcass onto the moral high ground by calling him a serial offender. Has he done this before? Or is it the number offences in such a small time? If I killed 15 people in 10 minutes would I be a serial killer, or just embarking on a massacre?

Never mind, he's undoubtedly very naughty, but you can't help but admire him really, can you?*

* Note to the righteous and safety-nazis. Yes he could have killed someone, but he didn't. So there's no real damage done, is there?
