<quoted text>Emergency vehicles are allowed to take red lights or even make a u-turn where a sign is posted no u-turn, yes disobeying traffic signals. Are you jealous that cops can do this or do you just hate cops? When you walk into a store, the employees at the store pretty much have free reign to walk in and out of anyplace they want in the store, right? Not you. It's not your store so YOU have to follow the rules in the store, not the employee. Well, to a cop on patrol, the neighborhood he works in is his/her store and has free reign to go whereever they please. They have the right to get to anywhere they want, even if it means taking a red light or disobeying traffic signs because they are at work in their store.
You are a moron. I'm not talking about the cops on a call, I'm talking about the cops who turn on their lights just to get to the precinct faster. As far as your terrible store analogy ... just because you are an employee at the local supermarket doesn't mean that you have free reign to play in the trash compactor. Use your head.

What do you care if they put their lights on just to get to the precinct faster?! And how do you know if they are on a call or not?!! Unless you have a police scanner and know about every call that goes over the radio, I guess you're the moron who thinks he knows it all.....trash compactor???? WTF!!!!!

Do you know all the details of the incident? Were you at the trial? Probably not, so you don't know the details of what happened, only what you read about in the papers genius. Did you ever think it wasn't the cops fault? Mayb some ATV defect or something else? Obviously the courts saw something other than negligence on behalf of the cop t award him all tha money. By the way did your taxes go up because of this? Stop cryin......I guess you sit staring outside your window looking at the precinct you live so close to, wishing you were on the other side......
