Florida: It has often been seen in the world that while common citizens are supposed to abide by the law, people in a position of power often abuse their authority to get away with bending some rules.
While police officers themselves are often seen as misusing their power to bend the laws, an honest cop from US has done something to set an example by reporting his own crime and also paying the penalty for it.
The cop from Florida called Tim Glover was reviewing footage of cars jumping the signal and happened to spot himself behind the wheel in one such case. The 58-year-old did the same to himself as he would have done to any other person by giving himself a ticket and paying the fine.
The cop remembered that he was getting lunch and turning at an intersection when the light went from yellow to red, but noticed his mistake only after looking at the footage. He informed his boss about the violation and paid a $160 fine.
The rare action by a police officer was lauded on the social media in a time when the behaviour of the force is under scrutiny in the US....
