police officer observes a violation of the law—someone not wearing a seatbelt
or driving 10 miles over the speed limit, or an underage teenager smoking a
cigarette, or a middle-aged man eating a sandwich and drinking wine in a
municipal park where no alcoholic beverages are allowed—she has a decision to
make: Should she arrest the lawbreaker? Warn him? Reprimand him severely, but
