In reply to comment: Uninformed cops are not bad cops (see in situ)

I disagree. Here's why:

An uninformed doctor is a bad doctor.
An uninformed lawyer is a bad lawyer.
An uninformed engineer is a bad engineer.
An uninformed salesman is a bad salesman.
An uninformed pilot is a bad pilot.
An uninformed manager is a bad manager.
An uninformed nurse is a bad nurse.
An uninformed mechanic is a bad mechanic.
An uninformed.... well, you get the point.

A government official claiming ignorance of the law, when an ordinary person on the street can't do so, makes a complete mockery of the justice system. They swore an oath to uphold their contract(the constitution), and are obligated to know the terms. Ordinary citizens can't get out of a contract by claiming ignorance of the terms. Why should gov't officials be able to do so?
