a time and place

I hear what your saying. But there is a saying I've heard, that sergeants would scream at the grunts in battle: "Is this the hill you want to die on?" The phrase was intended to reorder their priorities and make them choose their battles wisely.

Police should probably be trained to exercise discretion for the sake of public safety. If their actions, though lawful, were to endanger the general public and bystanders were unnecessarily hurt... well, sometimes it is safer to let a jaywalker do her thing rather than cause a serious traffic accident chasing her down, right? Same principle.
