Lawmaker complains about getting out of speeding ticket; trooper fired

Florida Highway PatrolNow tell me what is wrong with this picture: ‘McBurney, a former prosecutor, insisted he was not driving 87 mph because he set his cruise control to 75 mph, (admission he set cruise control to break the law) and he did not appreciate the trooper’s special treatment. He complained to Col. David Brierton, chief of the highway patrol, who ordered the investigation that led to Swindle’s dismissal.

The fact that members of the Florida legislature get special privileges from the Florida Highway Patrol. We only find it out because it found expression and was validated in a court of law.
