Weekly Commentary: Applying “do not favor the poor or the mighty” to road
Dr. Aaron Lerner 9 July, 2019

You shall do not injustice in your judgment; do not favor the poor or the
mighty, but judge your neighbor fairly.
Leviticus 15 Chapter 19

It is against the law to block traffic.


It is just as much a violation of the law for someone to block a road for a
popular cause or an unpopular cause.

I thought that after the police and the political leadership responsible for
the police screwed up last week in first allowing roads to be blocked for
hours by protestors that this concept sunk in.

But it hasn’t.

We still have police officials and the minister responsible for the police
mumbling something that seems to indicate that its ok to block roads as long
as the action doesn’t include violence.


If you are a bunch of people with wheelchairs you can apparently continue
blocking people from reaching medical appointments, catching flights they’ve
spent their savings on or attending a once in a lifetime wedding or other

If you are protesting something that the media has picked up as the cause of
the moment you also can block the roads for hours.

On the other hand, if the media doesn’t support your cause the police can
drag you off the road and prosecute you to the full extent of the law.

This is not equal justice under the law.

It is worse than that.

The police officials and politicians allowing the road blocking are
essentially stealing the precious time of many thousands of people so that
they can avoid the bad press they may suffer for stopping road blockers
favored by the media.

The enforcement of the law should not be driven by the degree of popularity
of those violating the law.
