Back in the 70’s and 80’s (you know, back when people were sane?) then people believed in something called the spirit of the law, not the letter of law, and this is how cops, judges, and juries also saw things. Plus lots of people didn’t like cops much and society in general thought that police, courts, judges and the whole carceral system needed to pretty much butt out of a lot human affairs and focus on the important stuff.
A preference for the spirit of the law rather than the letter of the law was because society was still ruled the by the values, rules, and mores of rational and fair men. Now men no longer rule and we live under Female Rule or Feminism. We no longer believe in the spirit of the law because that’s male thinking and male thinking is evil, oppressive, and especially hurts poor suffering girls and women, who are all eternal children with no agency.
In the Current Year, it’s all about the letter of the law because this is exactly how females think. Police, judges, courts and society at large has become completely pussified, faggotized and cucked because nowadays a majority of American “men.” What used to be called Man World is now Cuck World or even Fag World.
Most American “men” have adopted female ways of thinking and female rules, mores, and value systems. Any “man” who adopts a female way of thinking is obviously no longer a real man. At best he’s a pathetic cuck and at worst he’s a screaming faggot.
I don’t just blame women for this. Women can hardly help thinking like women even if there are issues with this way of thinking. Blaming women for thinking like women is like blaming fish for swimming. Fish swim because that’s what fish do. Women think like women because that’s what women do naturally and normally.
