Clear-cut laws leave officers few options

You may remember Monty Hall, the host of “Let’s Make a Deal.” This ’70s game show provided contestants the opportunity to choose Door No. 1, Door No. 2 or Door No. 3 to win a prize. Regrettably, those door choices are not possible for many of the people we encounter in law enforcement.
