We can't choose which laws we want to obey

I just read Rod Stephan's comments regarding sanctuary cities, and I thought that his final paragraph really expresses my discontent with the current attitude of breaking the law being OK.

If that is the case, how many laws may I, as a citizen, break without being held accountable for so doing?

I would choose nonviolent crimes like bank robbery without a weapon. I would expect that I would be given any amount requested, with no repercussions.

Breaking traffic regulations would also be a good one.

How reasonable does this sound?
