Is this supposed to matter? Is this going to change something? Is this supposed to save the officer from the blame? This is insane!It was the officers fault! If that officer is not punished for this then there is going to be a big stir up in the neighborhood! It is ridiculous how police officers can get away with anything, literally!!! I cant even believe this is up on here! It is irrelevant to how the incident turned out! How about the police officer acts like a man and takes what he deserves!!!!

and drunk drivers kill HOW MANY PEOPLE? i guarantee you if he lived, he'd be in jail. meanwhile, you can drive drunk as often as you like and get away with it. isn't alcohol a drug too?

I wonder if the police officer was breaking the speed limit. Why was the cop going 90 that is very fast. It could have just as easily been a school bus full of children, that the cop murdered by breaking the law. No one should be driving that fast. I can not think of anywhere in the United States it is legal to go that fast. The poor kid probably did not know what hit him. Stop prohibition of a harmless plant.

There was no alcohol involved in this unless the cop had been drinking, which could have been the case. Of course though if the officer had been drinking it wouldnt matter because police officers can do whatever the hell they want over here, as you can see from this incident-they can get away with murder. There is no reason that cop should have been going 90 in a 30. I honestly would not doubt it if the cop had been drinking. This cop should be ashamed of himself, what a coward! We are ohhhh soooo glad that you get to keep your job you piece of shit! I hope you are happy! I hope someone who knows this police officer reads this or even better the low life himself!!!!!!

You say your from Evergreen, but your tag says Chicago. FYI in any fatal they do tox on all drivers. So the cop was not drunk. I guess it's OK that the pot head, was high as a kite, and blew a stop sign to cross six lanes of traffic. If he had T-boned a car with a family killing them, YOU would be saying "where were the police, and why didn't they prevent this." People like you should just shut up, or find somewhere else to live. If the cop had been killed, and the kid lived, you would care less, but thats how it is. So who is the low life? As for him being a coward. Without cowards like him you would be hiding in your home waiting for some savage to break in, and kill you. They would have no one to answer to, and have freedom to do what they want. There would be no 911, and no one to rescue your sorry ass. Be thankfull that people pin a bullseye on their chest to protect scum like you. If he was doing 90 to save your life, he wouldn't have been going fast enough. I have a feeling that you are one of those sorry people that got cought speeding, and just hate the police because of it. You are one of those people that nothing is your fault. It's always someone else that did you wrong. YOU should be ASHAMED of YOURSELF!!!!!

DUI is DUI ,and the kid was DUI( not to mention the stop sign he blew). With that being said the kid could have murdered a school bus full of kids!!!! A fifth of Jack is not illegal to own, or drink but that doesn'tmean you can drive after drinking it.
