    I know twin girls that are sweet as they can be but have a strong distrust and a real hatred for the police and justice system. They were 12 yrs old when their mom was sentenced to 30 yrs about 17 yrs ago for conspiracy to mfg meth.

    People will hold grudges agains people and systems that they feel have wronged them, that is human nature. I don't think trying to bend the law would result in any major changes in that.

    Could you have possibly gone with a shorter and more concise thread title?

    Cops don't make the laws, they are sworn to uphold them. Technically the lawmakers are the girls, as well as other people in their community that have a government representative. The girls need a reality check.

    I think the justice system is corrupt and go way overboard on determining the punishment for different crimes. The girls don't need a reality check, you do!

    So how would "the justice system" being corrupt work?

    Yes, mom was an excellent role model as I'm sure the girls would agree. Mom only got involve with meth, hell that's like being involved in knitting. Knitting needles are sharp pointy objects that can be used as a weapon so who would want to blame Mom for conspiring to kill a few people and wreck families? Whether you like it or not, in a democracy, your elected representatives make the rules while acting on your behalf. Even disagreeing with them doesn't belay the fact.
