This is ridiculous. We live and act in three dimensional space +time. If you feel that you can only choose right or left, you are living a very restricted life.

Most experienced law enforcement officers view things in black and white. It makes taking a decision very easy and when you boil it down it makes sense, either you do something or you don't. The lighter shades of gray are considered white and the darker black. Even though we live in a gray world looking at things as if they were black and white really is that simple and makes decision making extremely simple. It's just one simple decision. Getting caught up in the gray can get a police officer killed.
