I live in the Milton area and work in Charleston. I get on I-64 east and 2-3 times a week I get passed by a unmarked Charleston city police department vehicle registration "P/D 0901". This guy drives 85-90mph thru 3 different counties with no lights on, just driving to go to work in Charleston. Iv followed this guy numerous times, all the way to the CPD parking garage going 85-90mph.
Why does the city pay fr this guy to drive out of city limits and even 3 different counties that I know of?

Obviously you are speeding as well if you have followed him from Milton to Charleston and he's going that fast so what's your excuse for speeding?

Are you gonna kill someone just because other people do? Gosh your pretty stupid! Wrong is wrong. Don't matter who is doing it, it will catch up to them. But you doing it because someone else is, is just stupid! Ever think he may he may be running late for a reason? Maybe he's on a shift that pushes him til the last min, maybe he can't drop his kids off til a certain time in the morning and he has to rush to make it to work on time. Maybe his wife is a nurse on night shift and can't be there to help out. If people would stop being so negative and bitchy and try to see good in other people this world would be a better place. Why don't you call in and get their name and try talking to them about the issue instead of bashing them??? Stop taking the easy road of pointing the finger and get up off your lazy ass and ask questions, mrs know it all!

So when you hit and kill a family due to your stupidity are you going to tell them that cops speed so why can't I. Your excuse was pathetic just like your original post. It amazes me how many people show sympathy to law enforcement when one dies in the line of duty but bashes them all other times. For your info not all 911 calls are to be responded with lights and sirens so next time think before you open your big mouth. Last but not least, slow down when driving on I-64 because I drive it every morning with my child in the backseat.

It's not the speed, it's the driver you morons. Some people can handle speeds of 75-80mph and still be able to drive safely, some people can't handle those speeds and those are the ones who cause accidents. I usually do about 65-70 in a 60mph zone and 75-80 when it's 70mph. I feel more comfortable and change my speed in accordance with upcoming traffic, obstacles, turns etc.

If you idiots would see past the OP following this guy and understand that someone who's salary we pay for is abusing the laws he is supposed to enforce, like if a teacher tells all of his students that no one can use a cell phone in class, then kicks back and plays Angry Birds in front of everyone. Just because you have the authority it doesn't mean it's right.

U dumbasses try to lead ppl off the topic because this is pointing out he travels out of jurisdiction, high rate of speed and to point out spending city money to travel to work when all the other officers drive their personal cars to work. And should he be leading by example!

Law Enforcement do not have to run their lights on every call, so do you think he could have being on a way to a call? I don't know where you live but here we have a high crime rate. Cops are also taught defenisive driving! They only run sirens in a major emergency situation or when pulling someone over otherwise they are only required to stop or yeild at stop lights and intersections and hit their sirens and lights to make ppl aware so ppl will move. So if you don't know why he is driving 80 down the interstate than pass him going 85 and when he pulls you over ask him! LOL Stop bitching because you wouldn't be if you were in a emergency situation! Cops can't win either someone is bitching because they take to long or because their speeding to get to the scene!

Either way all law enforcement have a department policy that you don't exceed speed limits unless your running code (lights and siren)!!! State police have it, kanawha county has it, and so does Charleston pd.

Ask Patsy Sizemore's family what happens when a Charleston police officer exceeds the speed limits without lights and sirens. An innocent woman died and her disabled husband was left all alone. There are no amount of apologies or excuses that can make that better.

Police are not above the law. They are trained to enforce it and they should live by those same rules.

So what if she/he was speeding? I would forgive her just to know we have someone driving a City vehicle flying up the Interstate using the Taxpayers Dollars. The driver of the Charleston marked car should be smart enough to know someone was going to report her/him for speeding. The citizens of this state are tired of being ripped off by a crook in disguise. The driver should be investigated immediately. Lets hope this gets the attention of the right people or it will all be in vain.

How could we forget the poor lady killed in Kanawha City killed by one working as a Charleston Police officer. Or how can we forget Officer Jones killed by recklessness. Charleston needs to give their officers more training.

WTH are you talking about? I'm not dirty, I am not a cop and I am not taking up for one! The only BS is in your comment.

The deputy that was put on paid leave due to him finding his wife with another man at south ridge, I mean what would you do?
I think if you find your spouse is having an affair and then find her with the man, really would you think right then I'm on duty and walk away.
I know he should uphold the law at all times.
But, as for me, it would be hard not to say anything.
I believe all your training might just be the last thing you think of if you see it in person.
I really feel for this officer.
