Rule of law doesn't mean a rule can't change

One of the things about the law that may seem paradoxical is just how stretchy the fabric of justice can be. The language of a given law does not change, but the way it is applied does not stay static. Over time, new challenges may be brought and different courts may come to different interpretations. Until a case makes it to the U.S. Supreme Court and the justices issue a decision, it isn't safe to say what the law of the land is.

Court asked to throw out manslaughter case over police recording

For most people the concept of law is probably quite simple. There are behaviors that are deemed illegal and there are laws on the books that spell out what they are. Violators of the laws get charged with the crime by the government and, if they're found guilty, they are punished. That, however, is a simplistic take on the subject and has a way of leading people to draw dangerous conclusions.
