    That story is as funny as it is, lulei demistafina, sad. Glad he let you off. In my extremely limited experience with traffic court, I have never met a judge who was that understanding (though I have gotten off).

    There is a mindset among some of the ffb orthodox that all goyim are bad. They have a lot of baggage that clouds their ability to see people for whom they are. My experience is that we are entering a multi-ethnic society where the color of your skin, your national origin or your religious background are part of the mix but not what defines you. This leads to much more intermarriage but it also leads to acceptance of Jews who want to wear unique garb and keep their unique lifestyle.
    There are exceptions. Last year when my black neighbor sued me for making noise in our pool, the lawyer, the insurance company and everyone agreed that a white person would lose in a case against a black in Baltiomore City and that a fair trial was not an option. This was stated as a fact, not an opinion. So, our tolerant society still has a long way to go.
    Meanwhile, you got off your ticket by showing up. I once went all the way up to New Jersey for a speeding ticket and the officer did not show up. They still made me pay the fine and told me that in NJ it doesn’t help if the officer doesn’t show up. So, in that way, Baltimore City is better for parking tickets but not for lawsuits. Mazal Tov
