Hunters are law abiding, they seek permits to protest, and they don't fling poo at cops. 
I wish this were entirely true, but it just isn’t unfortunately.

Cops just enforce the rules, however they are the enforcers for the state. Cops have a rough job with bad leadership so when they say I'm just doing my job I can understand  but they also choose a job that put them in the bad situation.

When your job requires you to go against your moral convictions....time to find a new one.  :dunno:

That would only leave us with bad cops. 
There has to be a better way.
would a cop protecting his citizens be a bad cop if he betrayed stupid left wing laws?

Great question.

I suspect that I ABSOLUTELY HATE some of the stupid/destructive left wing laws every bit as much as you do.

But it's a very dangerous and slippery slope to let folks start deciding which laws they should enforce.
Just as an example that I suspect you and I agree on:

I believe president Biden should be Impeached, found guilty and removed from office for dereliction of duty, because he's not enforcing our current immigration laws.   He obviously doesn't like those laws, so he's not enforcing them.   But IMO, he has no right to not enforce them.

We're all good with stupid laws not being enforced, but our definitions of stupid vary wildly.

I think the only good way out is to make - and enforce - good laws.

But think about the alternative:   If every good cop quit when faced with this, we'd have only bad cops.   Thank God we still have a lot of good cops.  Not enough, but still a lot.

Cops take an oath to uphold the constitution. Any laws that violates the constitution should not be enforced by law enforcement. And if the unconstitutional law is enforced that police office should be jailed or fired because they are doing there job.

So a couple years ago WAs long standing felony drug possession law was ruled unconstitutional, it had been in effect for decades.

So should the thousands of LEOs who enforced that law be arrested? I'm guessing not and it's only laws you personally view as unconstitutional that LEOs should not enforce.

I don't think anyone would suggest LEOs be arrested retroactive to current judicial rulings.

Looking through the current proposals I see a new elk sub area was added for rattlesnake.

Looks like possibly 4 quality bull tags and 20 cow tags split between weapons. I'm pleased the State followed through in such a timely manner. I didn't expect opportunity in that area this year.
