But in effective government, major disagreements are assigned to legislative venues, and the result of disagreements are codified into law, which is administered by an executive branch, with any disgreements settled by a yet-again removed judicial branch.
To have a cop say, "if you had done X, it would be okay," when the the only judge in town does not agree that X is permissable, leads to confusion, and erodes confidence in the law.
Maybe you're okay with deputy administrators mispresenting your rules, but I'm not.
