,My prayers are going out for all the people involved in the wrec k ,the, people in the Jeep and Mike peters also. Yes , some officers might speed a lil. But tell me a person that hasn't some time or another. I appreciate the officers and what they try to do for the comunity. But , anyway I do hope and pray everyone is alright. People should really think sometime before they talk about other people. If it were a family member of yours in a wreck , I'm sure you wouldn't like someone talking bad about them.

I think alot of officers speed just because they can and I don't think it's right. They should have to obey the laws like the citizen's do. If they are in pursuit then they need their lights and sirens going to alert people. I have an investigator that passes me flying every morning just about. Must love his job so much that he flies to work. No sense in driving 75-80 mph to go to work. This isn't the first officer that has had wrecks in Lee Co. I think the Sheriff needs to slow them down a little before someone is killed. Hope everyone is okay

Talked to a state police investigator today and he said officer Peters was going in excess of 70 mph. I guess this will get swept under the rug like the incident at Exxon.

I don't think the speed limit is 70 through there. Did they write him a ticket for speeding?

If laws were broken, let the authorities handle it. Praying for everyone involved.

He should be held accountable for his poor judgement just like everyone else. He could have killed someone or hurt a child. What if a baby had been you even stop to wonder just how bad this could have been. Going 70 when I believe the limit in that area is 45 is just stupidity and all ego. Family defending him on this site makes the whole bunch look stupid. If you feel so bad then why are you trolling topix.
Was Really Awful

The wreck was really awful there was others involved in it. One got med-flight out an the others went to hospital. How do you know there wasn't a child involved? Was you at the scene of the accident?
Lots of people don't have ideal what caused the accident.

If got issues with the law then contact someone, then report it instead of talking about it all the times. How many of you went an reported it?

Now let's all pray for everyone involved in the accident an no one dies.

Who needed to report it to the police? A police officer was involved. I don't have issues with the law but I do have my point of view. Police officers, ambulance drivers, moped drivers....whatever...we are all responsible for our actions when operating a vehicle. Speed limits are meant to be followed and no one should be exempt from the law. If the parties involved were your everday person then you bet your butt that charges would be pending and someone would have to take responsiblity for their bad judgement.

You may put me down as clueless or others but let me say this,I know the people family that was in the accident and it was awful. The families needs prayer.

I'm not saying any names of the people as it doesn't need too be mention on here. As the family do read this.

I've seen plenty of people speeding an it not just the police. Some are driving in the middle of the highways,some drives with no lights on or etc..

Police officers are supposed to be role models. They should be held more accountable for their actions just as any other “authority” figure should be. Who knows the exact details of the accident but it is ridiculous to try to justify reckless behavior by pointing out other,“plain citizens’” behavior. This officer was involved, not someone else so stop acting childish and pointing out everyone else’s wrongs. If he was speeding and did not have a legitimate reason to be doing so then he was wrong and should be punished and live with the guilt, even more than an ordinary citizen.

Sure everyone speeds and most get tickets for it. My thing if cops are on a call they have these lights on there car they can use. I have seen personally cops pass me speeding just to get pizza plus or some other restaurants. All I'm saying is they have those lights for a reason, otherwise obey the the speed limit like everyone else.

by the way I almost got ran off the road by one of these cops. just so they could stop at a gas station.
You people can take up for these a$$holes in uniforms all you want. they have never done anything for except make me late for work because someone threatened the sheriffs brother and i just happened to drive the same type of car. But when some a$$hole threatened to burn my moms house down they said there was nothing they could do about it, so in my opinion the law enforcement in this place is a joke.

I do hope that everyone involved in the accident will be ok.
