Popcorn Johnny: Police officers drive at high rates of speed as a part of their job, unfortunately that means that you're always going to have accidents, some fatal, because of the job they're doing.
Koodz: Koodz: Mrtraveler01: Koodz: I think firing him is just about enough in this case.A lot of murderers have that same sentiment.Killing people while driving fast or firing weapons is an occupational risk food have that you don't. Oversimplifying this as "murder" is just incorrect.Cops. Not "food."Bloody phone.
Farkage: Popcorn Johnny: A cop got some traffic tickets dismissed? Oh the outrage. A cop getting a traffic citation dismissed is a perk of the job. Besides, I bet there isn't a person in here that hasn't been given a break by an officer.He killed somebody you assh*le. This isn't "getting tickets dismissed".
clane: untaken_name:Those of use for whom English is our first language know that the first letter of each sentence should be capitalizedclane:So English is my first language what is it of yours? You freakin misspelled a 2 letter word "US"But please do tell me more about how brilliant you are and how ignorant I am....GarretSidzaka:Do you seriously believe that american liberals are communist. dont get me wrong i hate democrats and republicans very equally, but you seem to be a prime specimen for studyclane:No I don't believe Liberals are communists I believe Liberals are Socialists.I am Conservative/Libertarian.The Government should protect our borders and build highways and abide by/protect our Constitution.Not tell me what size Coke I may have, Not tell me I can't allow smokers in my bar, Not tell me I have to wear a seatbelt.Do you not cherish freedom at all? Do you need a nanny state type government to tell you how much salt you may have on your fries?But hey I see your point... oh wait you didn't make a point you just threw insults... oh well it's exactly what I expect from Liberals.
Popcorn Johnny: He was cleared of wrongdoing in the death.
Popcorn Johnny: All jobs have their perks, and I'm sure yours does as well.
Popcorn Johnny: Mrtraveler01: And I'm absolutely sure that he tried to slow down to the speed limit when trying to take that curve too.I'm sure he intended on slowing down to what he considered a safe speed
BroncoFan_17: jayhawk88: BroncoFan_17: The My Little Pony Killer: The point...Farker's heads.I don't get it.I think that was just his way of saying "Study it out".He was saying that the point was way over our heads. I got it. I was being a smartass.
Speaker2Animals: He had a legitimate reason for going that fast. A civilian doesn't.
Popcorn Johnny: 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.
BroncoFan_17: The My Little Pony Killer: The point...Farker's heads.I don't get it.
Popcorn Johnny: Aigoo: Any civilian under any circumstances--even under threat of mortal danger--would have been charged and sanctioned appropriately, regardless of the circumstances.I doubt that.
Aigoo: The rest of us live in the real world, with real laws... that apply to everyone but the FSP.
NoSugarAdded: cherryl taggart: jeffowl: jeffowl: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.
Popcorn Johnny: Fark Rye For Many Whores: This I can agree with, but that's not what happened here.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.
pxlboy: Kiwimann: I can't believe there are people in this thread defending the officer.What he did was criminally negligent. He deserves some amount of jail time (and the cops covering up for him deserve a LOT of jail time).Except that nothing will change and we all know that. Short of an American "Bastille Day" or some equivalent large-scale rioting, nothing short of the bankers, cops, politicians, etc swinging from overpasses and lamp posts would change anything.
SN1987a goes boom: The My Little Pony Killer: The point..............................Farker's heads.The point is you are blaming the victims and being called out on it.
Medic Zero: MythDragon: Surprised the cop then didn't pull him self out of the wreck of his car and start issuing tickets to the dying driver.Pretty much this.When are we going to stop letting the cops be above the law?
The My Little Pony Killer: A baby that is properly restrained does not get "sent through the windshield" fyi.
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.
liam76: The My Little Pony Killer: A baby that is properly restrained does not get "sent through the windshield" fyi.She was 12.
King Something: How is this any different than any other state in America?
