Letter of the Law vs Spirit of the Law

It seems that the police are ticketing people for anything and everything. In this article the man was struck by a vehicle and was hurt badly. He broke a small law that many have broken repeatedly, jaywalking. Adding insult to his injuries he was ticketed. I think he learned his lesson without needing the ticket. I wouldn't be surprised if he and the women he was escorting had been doing this for years. The driver of the vehicle was not paying attention to the road, especially at night with a snowstorm. A person must be even more vigilant. The arresting officer is contemplating if the two women are going to get tickets. I have a hunch there are no crosswalks anywhere near where they were. If this is true, are the elderly women supposed to walk two or three miles just to cross the road in a snowstorm? Its to fill the end of month quota that they supposedly don't have.

Injured good Samaritan ticketed for jaywalking

DENVER – A good Samaritan who helped push three people out of the path of a pickup truck before being struck and injured has gotten a strange reward for his good deed: A jaywalking ticket.

Family members said 58-year-old bus driver Jim Moffett and another man were helping two elderly women cross a busy Denver street in a snowstorm when he was hit Friday night.

Moffett suffered bleeding in the brain, broken bones, a dislocated shoulder and a possible ruptured spleen. He was in serious but stable condition Wednesday.

The Colorado State Patrol issued the citation. Trooper Ryan Sullivan said that despite Moffett's intentions, jaywalking contributed to the accident.

Moffett had been driving his bus when the two women got off. In the interest of safety, he got out and, together with another passenger, helped the ladies cross.

Moffett's stepson, Ken McDonald, said the driver of the pickup plowed into his stepfather, but not before Moffett pushed the two women out of the way.

When he awoke in intensive care, he learned of the ticket. "His reaction was dazed and confused. I was a little angry," said McDonald.

The other man also was cited for jaywalking, while the pickup driver was cited with careless driving that led to injury. Sullivan said the two elderly women haven't been cited but the investigation is ongoing.
