A: She dropped the kid off like… like a kitten on the highway. You’re going to tell me that that’s not endangering the welfare of a child?
B: No, Sergeant. I’m going to tell you that there are laws on the books, and there are also ways around them.
I thought 'ways around' mean 'the opposite ways/situation is right'.
But in this dialougue, does the speaker B want to say that there are ways to use the laws to get away with crime?
Plese help me to understand this dialogue perfectly!
