Professional Courtesy - A Two-tiered System of Justice

In a recent incident involving Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley, the clash between public trust and professional courtesy within the criminal justice system was starkly highlighted. Bodycam footage revealed an unsettling exchange with a police officer following a traffic stop where Doorley was caught speeding. Instead of compliance, the encounter escalated as Doorley seemingly leveraged her position to evade repercussions—igniting conversations about the dual standards often applied in law enforcement.

Such instances are a frustrating reminder of the discrepancies that can exist between the treatment of law enforcement personnel and the general public. While professionals within the system may benefit from an unspoken code of leniency—often referred to as "professional courtesy"—ordinary citizens are frequently subjected to strict enforcement of laws, resulting in fines, penalties, and even incarceration for similar offenses.

This disparity not only undermines the integrity of our justice system but also deepens public skepticism towards those sworn to uphold the law. The expectation of impartiality is foundational to public trust, yet incidents like these expose a rift in the application of justice, suggesting a two-tiered system where connections and positions influence outcomes.
