Sorry this took so long, this one was really hard to draw (and don't talk to me about shadows, I know they're inaccurate/missing, but I was so ready to move on from this complicated page...!)

By the way, this was actually inspired by something that happened in a city near me last year. I was so pissed off, but everyone was talking about how wonderful this cop was. Here's the article: https://www.khq.com/news/north-idaho-trooper-prays-for-woman-after-pulling-her-over/article_288693dd-5afa-5e5f-bb2f-a456af5be764.html

Terrible situation. Totally unacceptable. Well done in bringing this important Constitutional violate to light in your epic!

The double standard pissed me off so much. You can see that in Perez's comment about how people'd respond differently if it'd been a non-Christian religion.

Here's the article for you:

North Idaho trooper prays for woman after pulling her over

Getting pulled over can be one of the more stressful things to go through. And it can certainly ruin your day, especially if you get a ticket.

But for one Coeur d'Alene woman, it was a blessing in disguise last month.

“I broke down at the moment,” said 35-year-old Becca Prince. “I needed some grace because I wasn’t in a car that was mine.”

Prince wasn’t speeding, running stop signs, or red lights. She was driving her ex-husband's car and didn’t realize the tags were expired.

“He said your tags are expired, did you know that?”

At that moment, Prince broke down and explained to Idaho State Police Trooper Chuck Robnett that she was going through a lot.

Her business just fallen apart, she didn’t have her own car or a steady place to live, and she was selling her stuff just to pay the bills.

“You feel like your feet might get kicked out from under you again,” said Prince. “So I just shared that with him and he listened the whole time. He listened to everything I had to say with grace and a love-like listening ear.”

Thank you very much!

That is all? I'm not sure whether it is legally possible to not give a ticket here but I'd assume it might be. Given the situation and that no one was offended and that praying could have been done independently from the ticket, and it might have worked the same way if the officer had been a Muslim, I'd say no harm done. What's so terrible about it?
