To the driver of the Toyota Corolla, Please consider this friendly advice as opposed to legal advice, get a lawyer. I'd consider one from outside of Berkshire County. And if possibly, record and video all contact with everyone in the PPD.

Did the traffic stop Cowell was allegedly speeding to as he allegedly ran a RED LIGHT into the path of an oncoming vehicle involve an 83-year-old heart patient on his way to hospital, a traffic stop of an 83-year-old for the crime of allegedly going through a yellow light while on his way to hospital with a heart condition? I won't even bother to ask if illegal drugs or alcohol were contributing factors in the collision as the police officer ran a RED LIGHT, as I'm sure that information would be protected and fall under "a personnel issue".

It wouldn't surprise if Cowell is the type who gets pleasure out of arrested and detaining an elderly man with heart problems for the crime of going through a yellow light. Locking him up in the PPD gulag. Terrorizing and evoking in the elderly man nightmares of 1944 Nazi occupation. I could see Cowell being someone's worst nightmare.

I wonder if the driver of the Toyota Corolla experienced her life race before her eyes as Cowell allegedly want speeding through a red light into the path of her vehicle?

I agree with a lot what you write on here, the whole double standard thing and so on, but honestly Cowell is one of the good ones. Seriously man he is. He messed up and trust me he will take his lumps like a stand up guy. There are a lot of bad ones, but Cowell is a good one. Serious man give the guy a break.

"one of the good ones" "a stand up guy" I couldn't disagree with you more. But this is America, and I wouldn't dream of denying you your right to life, liberty, and of course, your right to your opinion, no matter how wrong it is. But honestly, "trust me" Cowell is neither "one of the good ones" or "a stand up guy". But I honestly do agree with you, and I do believe you about there being a lot of other bad ones, too.

I'm sure the cops, the "good ones" and the "bad ones" circled the cruisers before Cowell, with no visible injuries, was even loaded into an ambulance and transported to hospital, with no visible injuries.

HEROIC COPS SAVE BLIND WOMAN FROM FLOOD WATERS

911: Where is she?

Caller: About four foot underwater.

Monday night the hero officers who made the save spoke exclusively with CBS 12 News.

When the rain came down hard Thursday night and continued into Friday there were serious consequences for places like Boynton Beach.

"The whole city was basically underwater," said Officer Evan Esteves.

Drivers were stalling out by the hundreds, police officers were closing down streets trying to keep some kind of order in all of this.

But during the middle of one of the most hectic shifts in a long time, officers Evan Esteves and Rocky Zavattaro saved the life of a blind wheelchair-bound woman.

It started with a call for help around 5 oclock Friday morning.

The officers returned to the area to talk about how it all went down, when every second mattered.

They helped a homeless woman stuck in flood waters in a wooded area along SW 8th Street in Boynton Beach.  

We're told that the blind handicapped woman rescued is likely still in the hospital or at a shelter recovering.

I wonder if the driver of the Toyota Corolla saw they blue lights and sirens. Maybe if it was a fire engine or ambulance she would have stopped for them. I'm guessing you've had a bad experience with cops cause boy do you sound angry.

I'm sorry that if telling the truth about cops suggests to you that I sound angry. Perhaps what really annoys you is when someone dares to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about vicious ugly cops, not only does that annoys you but makes you angry and makes you lash out at others.

"HERO COP" MAKES SECOND RESCUE JUST DAYS APART
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8)- Just days after he helped save a family from a raging apartment fire in Clairemont, a heroic San Diego police officer is at it again.

This time, officer Zach Bradley pulled a suspected drunk driver out of her wrecked vehicle. An SUV flipped over and hit a natural gas meter on the side of an apartment building in Clairemont.

It happened just hours after Bradley wrapped up a press conference where he spoke about rescuing a woman and her two daughters as they jumped from a second-story building engulfed in flames Tuesday morning.

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8)- A San Diego police officer who helped two teen-aged girls and their mother trapped on the second story of their apartment building to escape during a raging fire Tuesday morning is being heralded a hero.

Go ahead, keep vomiting up you hero bullshit about cops. Obviously you can't face the truth. Doing the right thing doesn't make them heroes, or human. It might suggest that there may be a slight chance that there may be the slightest bit of primitive Neanderthal trait left over in a few of them. Or it just may have been a freakish incident that led to a few of them getting caught up in looking like they may have done the right thing, accidentally of course. But I seriously doubt that anything that may make any of them look human is not intentional, or natural to them.

FORGET THE KNUCKLEHEADS, THESE ARE HEROES IN BLUE
March 15: In the middle of the night, Sgt. David Potter and police officers Jason Judge and Brian Dougherty charged into a burning apartment building on 2nd Street near Cumberland before firefighters or rescue arrived, pounding on doors to wake sleeping residents. They saved seven adults and nine kids.

Sept. 2: Police officers Patrick Keck, Raymond Diaz, Marvin Marson and Rafael Ramos did the same on Clearfield Street near C, rescuing three people. Afterward, Diaz was treated for smoke inhalation.

Just get them talking

Nov. 5: Detectives Gerard Winward and James Poulos questioned two males suspected of gunpoint robberies of iPhones in the 35th District. One of the perps was charged with a single robbery; the other admitted to five others - and to the rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Summer 2013: A team of officers from the Major Crimes Unit worked with officers from the 2nd District to nab a duo suspected of stealing "Chrysler-type" vehicles from the parking lots of hospitals, including (for shame) Fox Chase Cancer Center. In custody, one of the men confessed to stealing 35 vehicles in the Northeast. As a result,$150,000 in stolen property was recovered. Hats off to Sgt. Dan Buckley, detectives John Logan and Steve Kershaw, and police officers James Campbell, Chris McCue, Anthony Glaviano and Kevin Doerr.

Sixth sense

July 11: Long after curfew, plainclothes officers Brian Murray and Alexander Norat and Sgt. Michael Carr spotted a male bicyclist whom they thought was a juvenile and attempted to question him. The kid dropped his bike and took off through neighborhood alleys until grabbed by the officers. In his possession: a fully loaded .45-caliber handgun.

March 6: Sgt. Michael Carr brought a suspected shooting perp to the hospital for possible identification by a gunshot victim about to undergo surgery there. The victim denied the perp was the shooter, but Carr's gut told him to take detailed notes on the suspect anyway. After the surgery, the victim admitted that the suspect was, indeed, the man who had shot him but he'd been too frightened to say so. A warrant was issued and the shooter was arrested.

Payback thwarted

Nov. 1: Police officers Thomas Brown, Raymond Rutter and Joy Gallen-Ruiz stopped a van whose five occupants were reportedly about to retaliate for a prior shooting. Sharp instincts and faster reflexes allowed the officers to arrest the men without incident or injury - a miracle, considering the men carried a fully loaded sawed-off shotgun, two handguns and a big bag of ammo.

Expecting, or even demanding that cops do the job they're getting paid to do, and to refrain from committing crimes of robbery, rape, brutality, home invasion, kidnapping, torture, and murder of innocent victims while they're doing the job they're getting paid to do, does not make them heroes.
