Well, as a law-abiding citizen, what this guy is saying sounds like (to me) not much different from the following.

A thief says to a police officer.

“I steal money only from rich people.
What I am doing is bad, but not as bad as killing.
I steal because I am poor.
Being poor is the cause of my wrong doing, that’s why I am not guilty.
This society stinks, and you should change it rather than catching me.
There are other people who are doing worse things than me.
You should think of punishing these people.
You don’t change the law, that’s why I am not guilty”

Legal term for countering such an argument is “selective enforcement”.
That there are people at loose doesnt justify your not being apprehended.
(The thief says guilty or not. But it is not accurate. All is innocent until proven guilty by court. )

That you agree with a law or not does not matter for law enforcement.

But to this day, it seems to me the police is not giving its 100% to catch bilogs.
Actually it is giving only, say, 0.0001% of its real ability to catch bilogs.
Another example of selective enforcement.
