Not above the law, he was responding to a call for help! Would you want him to drive 20 miles an hour if you were in desperate need? Seeing your from TX you have no idea what the road conditions are here in MA so wait for the full story before you make judgements.

Needless to say; even if he didn't actually hit a patch of black ice; and the crash was simply a case of DLB (Driving Like a Boob); the good ol' black ice alibi helps another blueboy save face...

Driving too fast for conditions. A police officer can't help at the scene of a crime or traffic accident if he doesn't get there.

Slow down. You weren't responding to a murder.

That is a busy stretch of roadway and perhaps hundreds of cars traveled on it without incident. The fact that there was an accident is proof the police officer was going too fast for the road conditions. The officer became part of the problem. Did the ambulance or backup cruisers crash in the same way?

Some cops can work for 30 years and never have an accident while others get in several in their career. You don't do any good unless you get there.

God bless the officers who protect us. All that is needed good equipment, proper training and common sense.

Gotta love the anonymous, cop-bashing keyboard warriors that post on these forums. Pathetic morons who probably still live in their parent's basement and are still pissed about the latest ticket they received (which of course, was not their fault - cop was looking to fill the imaginary quota...). Wretched, gutless pukes, you make me sick...

Here we go again Folks......one of our faithful cop supporters jumping in with the usual argument......anyone who offers an opinion stating that a cop may be negligent or may have goofed up MUST BE living in their mother's basement and they MUST BE angry about a speeding ticket that they deserved; they fought and they lost.....

You would think that they could come up with some new material; instead of using the same pathetic and stale comments..

If saying an ambulance attendant, fireman or police officer should drive carefully makes me a keyboard warrior than what has the world come to? I have been driving 46 years without receiving a ticket. My grandson is a police officer. I want all the officers to be safe so they can perform their duties.

There is a minor car accident. A cop is dispatched but "lost control of his cruiser and crashed". Job well done! Outstanding police work! Bravo!

We have all had police fly by us like maniacs only to find out they were responding to a routine parking lot fender bender. Most police demonstrate self control but there are always a few who respond to every call like they are headed to a murder in progress. They should be retrained.

Drive according to road conditions. Thank God the officer didn't kill anyone.

The cops typically get pretty creative when it comes to dodging any reponsibility for their errors; or for admitting any fault whatsoever; no matter what the circumstances are.

A great example of this just happened in Framingham Mass earlier this year. A SWAT Team barged into the apartment of an innocent and unarmed 68 year old man in a botched attempt to nab two low level petty drug dealers. And, one of the SWAT Team Members managed to shoot the 68 year old man to death; for no reason at all. Now, common sense tells all of us that the police statement should be something along the lines of: One of our SWAT Team Members grossly overeacted to the situation he made a grave error in judgement; resulting in the death of an innocent man. But, in typical police fashion, the statement to the pubic was more along the lines of "a firearm somehow discharged". This halfa$$ed excuse places the blame squarely on the firearm; and not on the dimwit who pulled the trigger.

Again, the cops are very skilled at dodging any responsibility for much of anything. After all; they are the ones filling out the accident reports and the police reports......

Don't like cops? Next time you need help call a crackhead...

Actually, sometimes a cop and a crack head is one in the same. A 5 yesr veteran of the Plattesville Wisconsin PD; Michelle Salentine 28 years old; admitted to smoking crack on duty 4 times to 6 times a week for a year. The FBI is investigating....

Thanks for bringing up crack and cops in the same conversation...

And; speaking of all of that; isn't it common knowledge that a Dracut cop or two was dealing in large amounts of stolen marijuana?

Don't be so quick to take the stand that someone is either a cop or a drug dealer; or even a drug user. It is not unheard of for a cop to be involved in any of those activities.....

Oh my, 1 out of 900,000+? Yea, I'd say that's almost an epidemic... You don't like cops, we get that. Don't be so quick to bash though. You don't have anything positive to say? Don't say anything at all. No one gives a sh*t about your opinion anyway. Now go have yourself a nice day "Kid"...

I agree that crack use is not a problem with the majority of our nation's lawmen.

But, drugs, cash and guns missing from police evidence rooms is something that is 1) not unusual. and 2) typically results in no charges being filed against the criminal cops involved.

Apparently, we saw this very thing play out right here in beautiful Dracut Mass. A similar case was just exposed down in Lawrenceville Georgia. There, 3 kilos of cocaine somehow just vanished while stored in a police evidence room; along with some marijuana and some pills. And, low and behold no one is going to be held accountable!(Again, very similar to what happened here in Dracut). Apparently down in Georgia; the video tapes that showed the cops going in and out of this evidence room were "accidently destroyed".

In typical police fashion; no charges will be filed against the wrongdoing (criminal) cops involved; but the police promised to tighten things up in the future.

I have said it many many times before: To those of you who are seriously considering going into illegal drug trafficking; it would be wise to become a lawman first. That way you will have easy access to illegal drugs. And even if you are caught; you will most likely not face the same consequences as you would if you were not a cop. Again, this has apparently been proven right here in Dracut!
