Which judgmental comment?

I think most officers will let another officer go if the issue was just one of revenue. However, if there was clearly a case of danger (for example DUI, felony etc.), then I would expect (or hope) they would write the ticket. And I think officers know that - otherwise they'd all be driving 100mph on the freeway, running red lights etc. with impunity. Example -

Say a cop let's another one off - so what? Less revenue for the city? It makes your chance of getting a ticket higher? Just make it up on the next person. Shouldn't we each be more concerned about what happens to ourselves rather than if someone else is catching a break and if it's fair or not? I learned a long time ago that life is unfair and just saying so will not make one difference. I hear this all the time (from my kids).
