Canton, MS asked in Criminal Law, DUI / DWI, Traffic Tickets and Workers' Compensation for Mississippi

Q: I know this is a long shot or if anything will come of this besides my answer I'm looking for or if anything can be done

I live in a small town in Mississippi as where the police dept I believe don't just do their job in some aspects but go far above and beyond the area of rights and I feel the deliberate disregard for one's rights giving the date place. And whom they are stopping!!! It's as if one's right ms are disregarded tickets are written and some dropped but not at the expense of the citizens in due cases!! It seems multiple tickets are written and most thrown out due to a guilty plea on one!!!!!!! It's a form of bullying and manipulated extortion any help please?

A: Without more information, it's very hard to answer your question. Generally speaking, officers and prosecutors have a lot of discretion when it comes to prosecuting or pursuing charges against a person. Even if charges are filed, they can decide to drop the case or drop only certain parts of it.
