One might even say permanent administrative leave

"a 35-moile zone"

A quite rough bit of work, that.

They're trying to brainstorm how to charge the drug guy with murder.

That sucks. Not many people look in the rear view mirror when making a left-hand turn. Sirens aren't an effective warning when the cop is travelling that fast. By the time they are noticeably loud, the cop is already too close to stop. It sounds like a bad situation to me.

Charging a subject with murder when a responding Officer dies in a traffic accident is actually the default behavior.

If I read the article correctly, there were three Officers driving at very high speeds when one turned in front of another.  However, they're looking to identify and charge a civilian driver who happened to be behind the three as well?

That's also pretty farked up.

Was looking forward to a story about an actual baby named DeLorean or something. Sad now.

One high-speed cop, three stopped cars. One of stopped cars attempted badly-timed left and its driver died in flaming wreckage.

Bad.

Yes, I misread completely.

I'm still unclear why they're looking to arrest the driver in the rear, though.

Christ!  How did you pass the 3rd grade with that reading comprehension?  They're looking to contact the driver who was behind the one that was hit.  (That would make him/her the second driver.)  They have some questions for him/her as a witness.  They aren't charging that person with anything.

"State police at Montoursville say they would like to speak with the driver of the vehicle that was just behind Robinson's and asked him or her to contact them"

I don't read that as a desire to arrest the rear driver. They're probably looking for a witness statement. How long he had been behind the car that was hit by the cruiser, had he noticed the deceased driver on his cell prior to the accident, how long before the cruiser passed him did he hear the siren, whatever.

Nope, I got this one correct.

"Would like to speak with" is normal Cop-speak for looking to detain.  Presumably, it makes the sheeple more likely to turn themselves in.

The State Police have already released their findings, so why would they want another witness?

Nope, you're a moron.  (Aside from the reason for using the word "sheeple".)  Go re-re-read the article.  Try tracing the words with your finger this time.  I'll wait....

The "findings" you say they released were only their preliminary findings of how fast he was traveling.  They still have more questions; the case is not closed.  They haven't decided whether to charge the officer with anything.

They're looking to contact the middle driver as a witness, because they haven't determined if the driver that was killed had used his turn signal.  That's an important point.  They're hoping the person in the car right behind him, who saw it all happen, can provide some more details.

But feel free to keep posting erroneous statements about a story you can't be bothered to actually read, and then trolling with your verbal diarrhea.  Stick to what you know, right?

Because, as noted in the second sentence of the article, the cop's speed was a "preliminary finding of the investigation." Which strongly implies that the investigation is ongoing. I can't imagine a reason why the investigators wouldn't want a statement from the person who most closely observed the wreck and who had a very similar perspective as the deceased would have had.

In the end we all know nothing will happen to the cop that killed the innocent driver.

Perhaps there was a mass circumcision happening?

He was obviously travelling at too high a speed for the situation. There is no need to find any other witnesses. Anyone driving at speed needs to plan for worst case scenarios on the fly and bad things happen if you can't or don't. The civilian was not at fault, they were killed by a bad driver. It doesn't matter if he had a turn signal on or not since he was in front of two other vehicles and it would not have been visible to the officer or even the third person in line.

 As per the article...

they must exercise due care so not to endanger public safety.

DePrenda came upon three vehicles and passed the first two, state police said.

 ...there is no need for further investigation. Their 'questions' are of no value. They are trying to plant a seed of doubt that might let the killer off the hook.

Here's the straight poop: Cop is eastbound responding to Fellow Officer holding A. Suspect at gunpoint. Cop comes upon stopped traffic in his lane, jogs out into westbound lane at 88 mph. Vic Tim makes a left turn and is T-boned by cop. Vic Tim's car ends up inside a building NE of intersection, cop car ends up on south side of road. Vic Tim thoughtlessly bursts into flames, he and building both sauteed to a crisp golden brown, police everywhere are traumatized.

So clearly the fault lies with A. Suspect. Prosecutors will be filing as many charges as possible.

Ohhhhh, I see. It's because of brown people again. Poh-leese just hates them some brown folk.

 Officer Jonathan DePrenda, 32, was traveling at 88 mph in a 35-moile zone.

Did he clip the tip?

88?  That's nothing.  In Illinois, the cops drive 126MPH and talk on the cell phone while killing innocent motorists.

lights and sirens on, check, responding to critical incident (and holding someone at gunpoint is critical) check, it's really unfortunate someone died but unless there is something we haven't been told there is very little reason to even black mark him let alone fire.
