I hope the police officer is cleared in this incident. The stupid people walking in the middle of the road were the ones at fault - what were they thinking? I see people in my neighborhood in Norman, walking in the street when there are sidwalks right next to them! The road is for cars the sidewalk is for walking - IDIOTS!

Wow Doug talk about harsh. So just because someone is walking in the road and it never says if she was at a crosswalk you are glad they dead. I really hope to never cross you in a car. By the way maybe the police officer was traveling at a very high rate of speed. If you are going 25 you are most likely not going to kill someone versus if you are going 60. I hope he gets investigated. If you would of hit her you would be in jail already! Pedestrian always has right of way. Read your laws. Moron!

My prayers to her family.

Pedestrians have the right-of-way in crosswalks. They don't get the right of way if their walking the middle of the street. They have to yield to cars. I don't think the name calling is necessary.

So because someone is jaywalking it is okay if they get killed?

You know that i am with everyone but the dumbass who says he should not get in trouble. It dont matter if someone is walking in the middle of the street or not i am sure a police officer is trained for stuff like that. So they should stop driving around like they rule the streets just cause your a cop does not mean you can speed and do whatever you want. So i hope he gets in serious trouble. And he should not be getting no paid leave. Weither or not if she was walking in the street or a cross walk he should still be at fault for what happend a young girl got her life taken away. He could have done plenty of things to avoid hitting them. So i hope he gets what he deserves. Police should pay more attention to where they are going then thinking they can drive however they want.

thx
