Laws should apply to Modesto cops, too

We don't drink and drive, nor do we text and drive — because it's the law. But it's OK for police officers and firefighters to use their cell phones on the road when the rest of us can't use ours? That's hogwash! Wake up, Modesto: It's time to stand up to the bullies that run our community and sit them down! Either it's the law or it's not — we need to vote on this situation.

It's bad enough the economy is down and there's no jobs, so when we get a ticket for using our cell phones we shouldn't have to pay for that ticket because it's OK for people in uniform to break the law. When they do, they should get a ticket and pay for it, not a slap on the hand.
