The best way to avenge thyself against the po-po (police), is to obey the speed limit?

The ends do not justify the means. Imperialistic policies will eventually come back to us. 'As you sow, so shall you reap.'

EGL, I agree, and Logan, well said. The best way to avenge thyself against the police is to drive at the speed safe for conditions and be able to defend yourself in court for driving to fast and without a license. ;-)

It being so easy to do the exact opposite and do unto others as they did to yourself. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth"

... and even better to undo the wrong-doer via methods that are not like those of the wrong-doer...

Joe, Rochester, MI

The wrong-doers continue doing wrong. The best way to avenge thyself is to vote the bastards out of office. hahaha

So true...though hard to do does pay off and you end up feeling good about not stooping to the wrong-doers fowl level...

The best way of avenging thyself ?
" Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes." II Tim 2:15,23
Study to show thyself approved, Pray For Your Enemies, trust the Lord, the Avenger of the blood, knowing he shall direct thy paths.
