Dumb logic

A British judge recently ruled that because the Police are used to hearing bad language it should no longer be against the law to swear at them. 


That is some dumb logic in my view.  We are supposed to have a bit of respect for these guys, aren't we?  I hope he needs a cop in the near future...

But I got to wondering about extending his logic.

How about:

The people are used to paying taxes, so just tax them even more?

Some kids are used to getting picked on and beaten up, so encourage your kids to join in.

People who cause trouble on the streets are used to being involved in fights, so allow the Police to use whatever force they fancy using at the time to control them - maybe shooting them in the legs until they stop swearing would be a good start?

Shops have stuff stolen all the time, so shoplifting is now legal.

Sex scenes on TV shows are getting more and more graphic, so let's just show porn movies on all channels all day long.

Most people break the speed limit, so let's increase the limit by 10mph to make most of them legal again.  No wait, the UK government actually plans to do that!

Go on, I am sure you can think of more!

My kids are used to living in filth, so we should just trash their bedroom even more. Actually, they just might go for that.

There is a lot of litter and pollution in the world already, so why bother trying to clean it up, conserve or recycle anything. Just quit!

Abby - No, kids have to live in their own mess - they would complain if you added to it.

Terri - That's the spirit!

Blacks and Jews used to be slaves, so let's just chain 'em up again and have them pick cotton and build pyramids.

Too far?

I thought only we had the corner over here on dumb judges.

Let's take this one step further, since crime is going to happen anyway, you shouldn't have to serve time.

Or, since we know that all politicians lie, they shouldn't have to be held accountable for their actions.
