but yah, he didn't do 205
yes it was the officers fault, because he turned in a ticket that was falsified and he knew it. It was also the courts fault for even allowing it into evidence.
Any good lawyer should have forced that to be thrown out on the basis of inability to achieve that speed alone, and sense there was no a reasonalbe doubt that the officer was able to correctly1 utilize the tools gioven to him, the court should havbe thrown the entire case out.
And the officer should have been reprimanded or fired for merely being that STUPID. If his judgement is that bad on something as simple as a speeding ticket, then one could infer that his judgement may be equally faulty in a shooting situation. and could result in an incident that results in a unjustified shooting and death.
The officer should not have written the ticket for an amount, but rahter spent the time and written them correctly for various other infractions. All of which would have stood up in court without compromising the law or the judicial system. It wouldn't have been difficult to do.
Instead the LEO wanted the distinction of writing one big ass ticket and in doing so put himself above the law and the job.
