iliifl The Law
A policy of the Lincoln Police Department is to tow
in cars of those who have a number of delinquent traffic
tickets. A new list has just been issued, including over 200
University and Wesleyan students.
A couple of University students have charged the police
with awakening them at early morning hours and hauling
them to the police station.
While a policy of early arousing is not one to be con
doned, the students do not have much right to complain.
They are the ones who have violated the law.
There is a tendency within our American society to
condemn the protection agencies any time one is caught
doing any type of misdeed.
True, a parking ticket is certainly not on the same
level with a murder, and true, some murderers have
evaded capture by the police forces, but this does not mean
that the little misdemeanors can be overlooked. The seem
ingly insignificant laws are on the books for a reason.
The police cannot ignore these laws or allow viola
tions without punishment. In order to make the laws or
the punishment effective, the police must have the power
to enforce them, to bring in the violator.
In the case of the parking tickets, the police force
may tow in any car at any time if it has delinquent tickets
against it. This" time, rather than tow it away in the middle
of the night, without warning or information as to where
the car could be located, the offcer contacted the violator
and told him the car was going to be towed away and
that the only way it could be prevented was for him to pay
the tickets immediately.
This may seem unreasonable, but if given till morning
to do something about it, the violator may move his car
and the officers would again have to track it down.
When a citizen ignores the laws of small consequences,
he nourishes a disrespect for the law, not only within him
self, but within those who are observing him.

believe, after the fabulous
football season, there was
no cause for such reason

now, we were not expected
to do as well as we did.
We lost one game, which
meant we no longer had an
undefeated season. But
look at the tremendous rec
