If you're transporting a critical person to the hospital, I accept that. Going to get a final visit in does not justify it.
I don't think they were arguing to get out of the ticket, they just wanted to see their family member before she died.
It was just the disrespect that the cop showed by saying that this man's dying mother-in-law "didn't matter." You just don't say that to people regardless of what laws they've broken.
