The NSA investigates supreme court nominees and presidential candidates to "keep us safe." The IRS targets their "enemies" (ie, anyone who wants to eliminate or reduce the IRS). The DEA wants to root through all your prescriptions and medications? No chance that will ever be abused!

While it sucks to get busted, he's doing everyone a favor by strictly enforcing a terrible law. Everyday, you, I, and everyone violates laws. Not because we have a guilty mind or because we're bad people or doing anything wrong but because laws and regulations have grown to the point that it's not possible to live a strictly legal life. But if they're only selectively enforced, why should we care?
