I was ticketed for speeding (60) on Craig Rd. when I was doing 45. Thought she was stopping me bacause of a tail light or something. It was early Sun. a.m. and I was one of three cars on the road that morning. She said she paced me. But from a stationary location as I was going down the road at 45. In order to catch up to me from a stopped position, I guess she had to speed up to 60. Then she said I slowed to 45, well that's because I was doing 45 all along and she finally slowed down when she caught up to me.

Hey Rex, do your homework. Your comments about "barely needing a high school diploma" are not correct. I know a few of those guys, and the accident investigations they do are complex using algebraic equasions. Why don't you give it a crack? Talking smack and judging 1 million of your fellow citizens based upon their occupation is just plain ignorant. Your assumptions are inaccurate.
There are few requirements to be a cop. one of them is that they have to have graduated high school, possess the desire to be a cop, pass psychological tests, and a training acadamy. All to risk thier lives rounding up bad guys in an entry level criminal process for about 55,000 a year. I made 86,000 last year selling cars and throwing the newspaper, and yes I did graduate high school. The point I am making is that being a cop does not require that the person have superior intellect, faster more accurate reaction time, be phsically fit, or even have extensive knowledge of the law. They are average people, like you or me, who, through thier training, have been bestowed the ability to "protect society" the best they can. And when these average people mess up, it is all covered up and evidence and facts are manipulated, all to protect them. The protection comes from the judges an lawyers who can keep these criminal off the street. All a cop does is bring them in.
This idiot says do your homework, I suggest you give it try. Complex algabreic equations. Give me a break. We are talking about car accidents right, not plane crashes or nuclear accidents. I just thought i would get that straight. There are lot of cops out there who still possess this attitude that because they wear a badge that they are entitled to respect. Respect is earned, no matter who you are or what you do. Las Vegas police have not earned any respect in my opinion, for they have no integrity what so ever. If I had slammed into the police car and killed the officer, I would be looking at a life sentence, or at least 10 years. All he got was 5 and will probably be out on parole after about 2 years, for 4 people dead. All I hope that when he gets out of jail, he'll know how bad it is to be locked up and he can think of all the people he put there who did not deserve it, and change his attitude about what it is to be a cop, and maybe even realize how ordinary of person he really is. Wearing the badge is a job, and all of us, the working class that is, have one.

LAS VEGAS -- The state has paid $150,000 to the families who lost relatives in a collision with a speeding Highway Patrol officer.

According to the Review-Journal, the state Board of Examiners has given $50,000 to three of the parents whose children died when their car was rear-ended by Trooper Joshua Corcoran.

Corcoran was reportedly traveling 113 mph without his lights or sirens on back in February 2006.

Corcoran pleaded guilty to five counts of reckless driving. He's serving a prison sentence at an undisclosed facility in another state.

Hey Nevada, this is OUR tax dollars going to pay for this outrage. No wonder the State has to cut the budget. All thanks to the OUT OF Control cops who think they can do what ever they want and get away with it. That alone should tell you that they have NO remorse for the lives they take. We suggest that the cop pay this tab and not the people. Now let start to police the police and cut their budgets. The more you have, the harder it will be to control them.

NHP trooper critically injured in accident

Associated Press - February 26, 2008 9:35 AM ET

RENO, Nev.(AP)- A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper is in critical condition this morning after her patrol car was struck by another vehicle while she was responding to a bomb scare.

The accident happened around 10 o'clock last night at Pyramid Highway and Highland Ranch Parkway.

Trooper Kara Kelly-Borgognone (borg-ah-NO-nee) was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center, where she remains in the intensive care unit.

The other driver was not injured.

Again? Now who's driving crazy, AGAIN? Its not the everyday motorist but law enforcement and we see it EVERYDAY, yet they continue to get away with it. Another out of control trooper. Will she get fined for causing this accident. She was the one speeding out of control and couldn't handle the vehicle. Not the everyday motorist.
This is a prime example of police restraint in Nevada. Its not the citizens but law enforcement that are causing 90 percent of the problems. Lets hope they take away her drivers license at the very least.

Instead of criticing a police officer for performing duties under hazardous circumstances, you should be grateful they're out there every day protecting and serving the public. The beaners who got in the officer's way were illegals. If we were to enforce the anti-illegal laws of the land, this wouldn't have happened.

I hope this cop gets nailed to the cross! I get tired of these guys playing God. The state cops are always driving over the speed limit and if it was one of us. Bam! a ticket! Protest to your selectmen and congressmen of Nevada to make a change. Oh, while I am at it. Stop killing people who have a knife or nothing in there hands!
It does not take ten cops with bullit proof vests to stop someone who is messed up in the head. Thats murder! Real tuff guys. This country is losing everything it is suppose to be. We had a president getting head and cops getting away with murder!
Just to let you know - just a knife - can kill someone just as quick as a gun. Bullet proof vests do not stop knives smart guy. Also, you can't just shoot a knife out of someone's hand. Noone wants to shoot someone and it is a last resort, but knives are extremely dangerous. It's not murder if someone shoots someone that comes at them with a knife, one stab can kill you.

No, she did not get a fine. She lost her life. Kara was not driving crazily and there was no one else killed in the accident. Get your facts straight before you spout off like the ignorant ass that you are.

Kara was responding to a bomb threat. She was running code with her lights and sirens on. Please get your facts straight, or post your name. Perhaps you are confusing this incident with another. Kara was in the right, she broke no law. This was tragic accident. She paid with her live.

Right!
Jessica Wiliams also was involved with the corrupt court system and that was for an accident too, yet she was sentenced to 40 years. Bottom line is that she fell asleep at the wheel and they threw the book at her. She was a mother of young children yet that ment nothing to the judge. If anyone needs to research events its you. The system is corrupt and favors cops.This cop was given a light sentenance and probibly will get out on parole in a couple months. Its not justice unless it applies equal to everyone.The cop are supposed to have higher standards that anyone yet the system always sides on the cops side. Lawyers FAIL to protect the citizens and judges destroy family lives based on made up cop stories.
Come on down to Vegas/Henderson and see the police abuse for your self. This is a war zone and its the US Citizens against the terrorist cops and lawyers and judges. Even the Sheriff, who is quitting, stated that the system is broken. No one can trust a cop in Nevada and until you so called lawyers wake up and put a stop to the corruption we will never trust a cop.
Wake up and get out of your shell because soon or later you will be abused by some out of control cop in Nevada.

I was just reading an article on a woman by the name; Pricilla Ford right ? she was given death, to where I feel she shouldv'e been confined in a mental institution, she took medication to help her cope in this life, trama from a daughter being taken from her prior to her crimes, So do you really think that in this day and age what with technology and laws would she be given a mere 40 year sentence or 20 yr. or like the state trooper guy probation...just curious

first off.
she cant get fined! shes dead, she was doing everything right. you have no right to go off and judge her when you didnt know her. she was making sure nothing was wrong at the so called bomb scene. so shut the hell up. that is wrong in your part of talking bad about a woman who was doing her job right, and i would know because she was more than just a cop to me she was my mother! thanks.

refer to my original post:
[quote]They were unlicensed (illegal aliens) driving 52 mph in the fast lane of a 65mph highway. The officer was driving 113 mph. Both parties were at fault in my opinion.
The officer is being unfairly treated.[/quote]
Unlicensed drivers have no place on the roadways. Period. They shouldn't have been driving so slowly in the "fast lane" or on the road at all - AND - the trooper should not have been driving so fast.
They hold just as much blame in this as the trooper does.
O.K., so basically what you're saying is that because (a) the driver (supposedly) didn't have a little plastic card in his wallet that said "driver's license",(b) he was not from this country, or (c) he was driving below-not above, but BELOW- the posted speed limit in a lane that YOU designate as being a "fast" lane-which has no official designation in law as such-you think he deserved to die? That he screwed up and did something wrong, and he and his passengers deserved to be MURDERED by the State of Nevada? Because if that's not what you are trying to say, then you need to learn to choose your words more carefully. This case is not to be sugarcoated. Be very clear on who the victims are and who the worthless, murdering, criminal pig is. And if you're not clear on that, then I'm going to help you out right now: The worthless, murdering, criminal pig in this case-the one who deserves to be executed on Nevada's death row immediately for what the slimeball did, is FORMER NHP trooper Joshua Corcoran!!!! The victims here are the 5 occupants of the car he maliciously, selfishly, brutally, and uncaringly slammed into while traveling at a disgustingly, obscenely high rate of speed which, even if he were on a call, which he wasn't, he had no business going anywhere even remotely close to! So if anyone deserves to die, if anyone is guilty of anything at all, it is him, NOT them!!!! That's the problem with our society today-we give the most viciously savage criminals in our society a light slap on the wrist and say, "Bad boy (or girl), don't do it again", and then we turn them loose to do exactly that, while the innocent have their whole lives stripped away from them for nothing, or for trivial, penny-ante b.s. that doesn't mean anything, and people like you who clearly favor such a scenario make me want to absolutely PUKE!!
