Upholding the law

I always enjoy reading Mike Holst’s letters, and his latest one makes a good point. However, part of what he said has me puzzled and scratching my head.

He stated: “As a police officer, I’m charged with upholding the law. You were going 45 in a 30 and yeah, I can overlook a few miles an hour ...”.

As a former police officer myself, I fail to see how overlooking someone going 50 percent above the posted speed limit is upholding the law one is charged with enforcing.
