Appearance of Impropriety

Thomas McQueen used this phrase in the press release this afternoon pertaining to the new indictments by the McHenry County Grand Jury.

When the top official of a large law enforcement agency says, "I had to go 85 just to keep up with traffic" (in a 65MPH zone), is there any appearance of impropriety?

I just got back from LA last week and if you don't drive 80 you will get run off the road.

Glad you survived driving in L.A.!

When I lived there for 4 1/2 months in 1989, I hated it. I figured I would get a ticket for OBEYING the speed limit.

I asked a Woodland Hills cop about speeders one day. He said, "You can't get there if you don't speed." Not "get there as quickly"; just "get there".

I was very happy to clear the state line in May 1989!
