I was watching the news the other night and I saw where a motorcycle cop was killed in the line of duty. What happen was – a woman made a right turn on red and pulled out in front of the the officer’s motorcycle. Before I get deep into my questions let me say that my heart goes out ot to the fallen cop and his family and I pray that people should be more cautious when driving. With that being said the driver was cited for failure to yield. Not to take offense with the driver but I’m sure this accident wasn’t at all her fault. Reason why, because I’ve seen these motorcycle cops cut in between cars at a alarming rate of speed when not on a call, just speeding for no apparent reason. What’s get me the most is when they drive up to a red light and flash on their lights to cross a intersection only to turn them off when they’re up the road. A majority of them are always on there cell phones while driving and some not wearing seat belts . Now what gets me the most is when they leave their parked car running for long periods of time with no one in it…My questions are do you think police officers need more driving training?? Should they themselves be ticketed or demerited for not obeying traffic laws?? I know that officers can place cell phones calls through the 911 call center and it would be free to them but who pays for this?? Taxpayers?? Do you think I would go to jail if I cut the ignition off next time I see a police car running with the air on full blast and no one in it?? Do you think the police are above the law when it comes to driving?? Should we as citizens be able to issue them tickets or be able to report them?? Where are my damn donuts??
P.S. ***El Presidente I will keep you and your family in my prayers, stay strong and may God bless!!
