i would like to thank everyone who supported the rodriguez family. i recently relocated to another state and eventhough i hated my city i was raised there and consider them my family. knowing that i couldnt be there to support my peoples was horrible, but when i seen how a large amount of people reunited to support in the donation for the expenses of the wake and burial of luis rodriguez was so warming for me. only if we can reunite and show love daily in the city of chelsea like we did for luis we would be able to prevent from someone else from dying from violence.

I have lived in Chelsea only 6 years. It is not only Chelsea that things happen it is in other towns and cities as well. Tragedy strikes wherever and whenever.
This could have happened anywhere. So it happened in Chelsea. The police officer was responding to a mutual aid call. I used to work dispatch in a town years ago. You have to ask questions from callers so you know how many police, fire engines or EMS vehicles to send. It is based on the information first received from a caller. No one knew why that officer was going fast. No one knew what type of call he was going too. All the information came out after the incident.
I still do not understand what the fuss is over going over the speed limit? Ummm. fire, police and EMS have the right to go over the speed limit to protect a life at risk. Sirens and lights are there for people to be warned that an emergency vehicle is on the way to a call. A lot of people do not even pull over when they see an emergency vehicle approach.
Members of emergency services are also putting their lives at risk also by driving fast and do not know if a pedestrian maybe walking in the street or a car will not pull over for them and they will have to go around it and may cause an accident with on coming traffic.
What gets me if the people who really did witness something or "heard" something why did they not call 911? They knew by hearing something there was an emergency. "I saw a shoe flying up". Well instead of getting on your phone and calling 911, you take pictures?
The witnesses got their 10 minutes of fame on TV. Witnesses who claimed that the police officer did not do anything. Did you see the windshield? He could have smashed his head into that windshield and could have been killed as well. He probably most likely went out for a brief moment and then woke up. Did anyone go to see if the officer was OK? NO! Any concerned person who saw a damaged window like the one on the K-9 truck would have gone to see if the officer was OK. That was a pretty big impact from the picture.
Taxi drivers drive worse than anyone. Put a taxi driver in place of the police officer. It would have turned out the same way.
Instead of trying to blame the CPD understand that they are probably feeling bad too. The officer had every right to go beyond the speed limit as he deemed the original call for help was warranted for it. Like I said a 911 call just that a call for help. If someone says their stove is on fire but the flames have gone up to another apartment the dispatcher does not know that.
Jeez people. Stop trying to find fault and fix blame. Put yourself in the position of a dispatcher, EMS, firefighter or police officer. They are only getting information from a trained dispatcher who can only go by the word of the caller.
Since when did everyone all of a sudden become forensic scientists?
