What's worse is that it takes a legal interpretation from a judge that could go either way given the same set of circumstance. On Tue, the defendant is Tom, and he gets violated. On Wed the defendant is Jack, and he's found within the rules given the same set of characteristics. Roll the dice is no way to run a system of laws.
Now you've done it...
Once the legal precedent is set in a case regarding a specific law, the same set of circumstances should result in the same verdict.
Unfortunately it's a situation where the first judge gets to decide what the law means, and which specific factors decide the case. My wife and I ended up being the test case for a new law a couple of years ago...fortunately ruled in our favor, but there were a couple of specific factors that we think tipped the balance in our favor. Absent those specific factors, it could easily have gone the other way.
When it doesn't - make more laws, rules, regulations, ordinances, so that every human activity is perfectly described.
That far, I wouldn't go...
