I doubt that.

This case reminds me a lot of a situation that the Orlando Farkers will remember well - an Orange County deputy killed an old man a couple of years ago when she was responding to a non-emergency call for assistance with a burglary suspect.  She was blowing through a 40 mph zone at 86 mph at 5am with no lights or sirens, and T-boned the guy.  The highway patrol showed up and handled the accident, did an investigation, found her at fault, and issued her two tickets.  FIVE state troopers testified against her in court, and she herself admitted to speeding with no lights or sirens.

The result?  The tickets were dismissed, and the judge refused to comment.   You can't expect justice when not only do LEOs act outside the law with impunity, but the judiciary doesn't seem to have any interest in rectifying it.  Interestingly, the sheriff's office fired the deputy for the incident after saying she didn't do anything inappropriate.

Law enforcement and other government officials would do well to understand that when people feel they have no recourse against these kinds of actions, it becomes more and more probable that they'll be handled by the law firm of Remington, Winchester, Heckler & Koch.

Yeah, we know. Unfortunately, more than half of our countrymen are too farking stupid to realize it or worse, are complicit. Visions of the late 1700s and the Tories dance through my nightmares regularly as I try to figure out if this is 2013 or 1933 Germany... But I'm the one who doesn't know history and is just "paranoid" about what's going on in my country.

In more than a few jurisdictions, blanket immunity takes politicians, cops, city workers, etc. off the hook for any all liability.  So, at least Florida is doing a teensy bit better.

It's much better than $0 liability. $200k can pay for a lot of vengeance.

These days I hate to admit I'm a cop defender.  For every cop that punched a woman there's a shiatbag black woman that couldn't keep her mouth shut when asked questions.  Whenever some hippie douchebag gets pepper sprayed, it's because 30 seconds earlier they were throwing bricks through the NIKE store.  Liberals love to break out the "STOP BREAKING THE LAW ASSHOLE" argument whenever the charge in question interferes with their "right" to my taxpayer money....Red Light Cameras, for instance.  But when you feel entitled to other people's things in the name of fairness, anything goes because you're right and I'm wrong.

But man....with this kinda shiat going down, and the Dorner thing obviously the result of corruption coverup...I'm slowly, slowly....eroding my respect for the blue shield.

/I still say Yes ma'am, Yes sir at a traffic stop.
//4 tickets in 3 years, all 4 dropped.

FHP Cpl. C. Brooks Yarborough investigated the crash and found McClellan responsible. Prosecutors declined to file criminal charges, determining that the trooper's driving did not rise to the level of vehicular homicide.

"He responded to [the call] rapidly because that's a dangerous thing, rocks hitting cars," Willie Meggs, state attorney for the circuit that includes Gadsden County, told the Sun Sentinel. "We made the conclusion that there was a life lost, but he was trying to save a life."


/Seriously? As a leo, I"m usually on the side of law enforcement, but this is bullshiat. Someone throwing rocks is not an "emergency" of any sort, and even if it was, you don't hit a 35 Mph curve at over 100 mph. And from TFA, he didn't have his emergency lights on. No emergency, just bored and driving like a jackass and killed a woman. Anyone else that drove at those speeds would have been charged and found guilty of vehicular homicide. Hands down. There is no excuse, none, except not doing your job right, and putting everyone in danger for no legitimate reason. This guy should have lost his job, gone to jail, had everything he owned sold and the money given to the surviving family. It's this kind of bullshiat that makes people hate cops, and as a honest Leo, it really pisses me off.

Fixed that for ya!


Even here in RI I see some very egregious driving behavior by cops. That they haven't killed anyone yet is a small miracle. The city cops in Providence flaunt pedestrian law regularly. So I found the department on Facebook and asked them about that. Got an Weeners but nothing more. So I'm sure I'll see my district lieutenant at a community meeting soon enough. I'll ask him there why it seems I've nearly been run over by cops in this area several times.

p51d007: I've been a law & order person all my life, worked as a dispatcher off & on for almost 20 years.
THIS kind of crap ticks me off.  I see officers doing stuff like this all the time & you just want to
slap em up side the head.  Blowing through intersections IN TOWN at 100mph around "drunk thirty"
at night, speeding with no lights or siren.  Pulling up to an intersection, tossing on the lights/siren
just to get through the intersection because they don't want to wait on the light (I have a scanner
so I know if they are on a call or not).  It just enforces the public's perception of "bad cops" when they
do crap like this, but, considering the moral decay of society, it's not surprising that police do it also.


And how many times have you had those officers arrested? Or were a witness against that behaviour in court? Or reported them?
 
2013-02-17 02:19:43 PM

CruiserTwelve: At least the agency is taking the proper actions. The trooper that caused the wreck was fired, the troop commander was fired, and it looks like the sergeant that failed to send a replacement to court will be demoted.


Honest question:  How much pressure does executive leadership put on law enforcement leadership to ensure that situations like this don't get prosecuted in order to minimize civil liabilities?

ZAZ: We handle it differently in Massachusetts. When city cops tried to press drunk driving charges against a state trooper the magistrate made the case go away. No need to be conveniently absent. Just let the court do its thing. "Continued without a finding" is the standard disposition when public employees get in trouble. That's called "diversion" in some states. Basically it means don't get caught in the next year and it's like you were never in trouble. No disqualifying conviction on your record, no loss of pension for official misconduct.

But when his case came up in court, the trooper who issued the citations wasn't there. Another trooper in attendance said that though he couldn't represent the agency, he would not object to dismissing the tickets, and the judge did just that.

The Romans, and they who shall not be named, had a way to deal with this: collective punishment. Fire 10% of the officers in each of the involved forces.


Hang the judge and the chief of police and the pig who committed the crime. Hang the one that didn't shot up and his boss as well.  We'll either run out of bad cops or they'll get their collective shiat together.  Either way it's a win/win

History is a long and broad map of every stupid idea and every good idea, ever.  It encompasses scope and scale that are not usually in view in common matters of daily living.  All there in glorious black and white and in some cases, technicolor.  It is the feather in the cap of what we have managed to offer as eduction, because inasmuch as the mechanics are necessary - language, math, science - history is the user's manual.

Here is how fascist states are installed, and this is from people who have installed some whoppers, not me.  You create an event that instills the populace with fear and point to some nebulous enemy as the perpetrator, and call anybody who doesn't foam at the mouth on cue a traitor.  You hold forth great amounts of propaganda that is designed to make the populous divided amongst themselves in factions, all rabidly barking at each other and trying to wave whatever flag you sold them higher than the next person's.  You give broad and sweeping powers to all factions of the bureaucracy and remove and dismantle any protective infrastructure that prevents those powers from being abused or prohibits laws from being unjust, and you do this in the name of security.  Next, you dismantle it's economy from within, and redistribute all the wealth into the hands of the ruling class you are creating and make the rabble dependent upon it for sustenance.  You blame the collapse on the "ignorance and laziness" of the commoners.

Once absolute power and wealth and autonomy is established, you then  - should your new herd of sheep have anything resembling weaponry - create events that urge them to willingly surrender them as a moral imperative.  At this point, you own their lands, their labor, the clothes on their backs and they can't wipe their ass, eat lunch or have any viable income stream without you knowing about it, where they went, what they ate, and how much they have.  You own them like cattle and you can do as you please and live like kings with no effort on your part, and they'll be kept busy waiting for the next urgent message about how the other poor, dumb sonofab*tch up the road, who hasn't got a pot to piss in either, is responsible for their plight - thusly unable to form a cohesive response to your shenanigans.

Any of this sound familiar?  That's the play book.   That's the 101.  It doesn't involve people twirling their handlebar moustaches or clandestine meetings in robes or chanting.  It's pure business and as plain as the balls on a tall dog.  And it works every time because the people getting shook down are all certain that it "can't happen here".

This. The police have no accountability. As if to underscore this vast division between LEOs and the proletariat target practice, filming the police doing unaccountable things can only end badly.

liam76: The My Little Pony Killer: liam76: The My Little Pony Killer: A baby that is properly restrained does not get "sent through the windshield" fyi.

She was 12.

My point stands.  A properly restrained ANYTHING doesn't go flying out the car.

Seat belts aren't really designed for your average 12 yr old. There is a chance she was wearing one, regardless of her wearing one he still killed the driver and deserves to go to jail.


OK, since you people are being obtuse for some reason, let me lay it all down.  Pony Killer said " A properly restrained ...."  Which means that if your 12 year old doesn't fit into the seat-belt yet (and that would be odd BTW) then they are LEGALLY farkING REQUIRED to be using a booster seat, at which point they become "properly restrained".  You are being a dick for no apparent reason, Pony is 100% correct here and frankly this is just sad that you had to have it explained to you.

None of this has anything do with the murderous cop, and the fact that he got to walk away.  If it were my 12 year old... well...  ITG and such.

That's exactly what happened here, the officer was driving at a high rate of speed responding to a call of a potentially fatal crime in progress. He was terminated for not following proper procedure, but wasn't found negligent in the death of the woman.


If he wasn't following policy, then in fact he was being negligent, and thus was negligent in the lady's death.

Koodz:...responding to an emergency call?  I don't know...He should have had his lights on.  He should have been slower....I think firing him is just about enough in this case.

Acting negligently or recklessly in a way that directly causes another person's death isn't legal no matter what your job is. Firing is not an adequate response to negligent or reckless homicide.

>>Of course having his lights on would have had no effect on what happened.

Of course nothing. That's a question for the jury to decide.

The problem isn't the cops in the story.  Cop did bad, cop was charged (a little lightly IMO) and cop was in court to face those charges.  The problem only started at this point.  You have in the courtroom the state attorney who is charging the cop.  You're supposed to have the citing officer as a witness.  If the prosecutor doesn't have his witness, he needs to ask for a continuance.  The judge has their own ability to do so even if it's not requested in the interest of justice being served.  Neither apparently did this and all in the room were okay with dismissing all the charges.

That's the problem.

Yes, the family can (and almost certainly did) sue but the real issue here is why and how can the criminal charges be so blithely ignored?  I mean, if it's me, the cop gets charged with vehicular homicide which is what every other single non-cop would have been charged with had it been them that did the killing.  He didn't get that charge and the ones he did get were swept away because a colleague of his magically doesn't show up?  How does the judge just dumbly nod her head and say "case dismissed"?

The American justice system is beyond repair.LEO barely tries to hide it because they are not subject to the laws that govern average citizens.A cop who tells you he is there to "protect and serve" is full of it.Anyone who participates in such a organization is morally bankrupt or naive to point that they pose a danger to the general public.

Considering the state of the economy as well as other social factors this will not end well.Most Americans have no idea how fast a government can change.It would serve them to look into a few history books.In a couple years when you see former LEO/politicians being dragged out of their homes and hung in the street you will know why.

The brick thrower should be the person arrested for murder.

kd1s: NFA: Spanky McStupid: " Looks like FHP has most police have a license to kill."


Fixed that for ya!

Even here in RI I see some very egregious driving behavior by cops everyone because RI's roads are crap and they give out licenses to anyone with a pulse. That they haven't killed anyone yet is a small miracle. The city cops in Providence flaunt pedestrian law regularly. So I found the department on Facebook and asked them about that. Got an Weeners but nothing more. So I'm sure I'll see my district lieutenant at a community meeting soon enough. I'll ask him there why it seems I've nearly been run over by cops in this area several times.


fixed it for you

/went to university in RI...hated driving through north provi...provi...everywhere and also being surrounded by massholes since everything is 20 minutes away.  freaking RI.

craig328: That's the problem.


To the best of my perceptions, the problem was some "judge" giggling and saying "So you wants to dismiss this?", and then telling everybody to go home.  If that was a legal proceeding, then hockey games are knitting circles.  Tee hee.  I think it's time to start reviewing the records of these bargain basement, chuckle headed cows and autocratic, vestpocket weasels we keep giving judicial authority to.

jeffowl: reillan:
Yeah, there shoulda been some criminal negligence here... I hope the dead woman's family sues the state big...

Unfortunately in many states (can't speak for Florida) damages in lawsuits against the state are statutorily limited, in some cases to as little as one million.  The idea being that the taxpayers weren't at fault.  And I don't think a suit against the trooper personally would be allowed to proceed.

Oh, and when they say the commander was fired, they usually mean transferred to another law enforcement organization after an appropriate cooling off period.


True dat, unless they specifically get his professional certification.  That almost never happens.

You missed the part in the article where the judge was shocked that they wanted to dismiss it.

FTA:
The judge, seemingly shocked, responded: "There's no objection? C'mon, y'all Candid Cameraing me?"

I don't get it.


I think that was just his way of saying "Study it out".

Farkage: It's evident from you responding to other people's comments that you are indeed capable of blowing a cop and typing at the same time, so I can only assume that you are, by default, admitting defeat by not responding to my comment after 2 requests on my part.  Interesting.


I'm not going to waste my time with an obviously immature kid such as yourself.

Of course she was.  A cop with his ass in a sling and they want to dismiss it.  I certainly would be astounded by this or at least try to seem as such.
