wouldn't you expect the victim in an accident that happened an hour before the first person arrived to be at the hospital ? If I were in an accident where I could have potential injuries, I'd want to be taken to the hospital ASAP.

Its disgusting what happened there!
I will say, growing up and knowing that town, there are a hand full of good officers.
However, there are a few that are worthless and should be booted!
Bottom line is protocol!
They did NOT follow any of the rules they enforce. Anyone involved in this boys death should be prosecuted to the fullest extent!
As for the driver.... he took a life!
Eye for an eye!
Its quite obvious that with the Cheshire case in full swing CT is not afraid to use the death penalty. Use it!
Its far too expensive to keep an inmate alive.
Death has but only one punishment!

To the off-duty police officer involved, only you know the extent of your drinking and only you know truly the facts surrounding this tragic accident. If, in fact, what some people suspect is true, or even a jaded version of the truth, you need to step forward and take responsibility for your actions. You need not drag the Department through the mud, you need not drag your father through the mud. Part of being a police officer is honor. Do the honorable thing: step up to the plate, take responsibility. For the sake of Henry's family, for the sake of your police department family and for the sake your own family, do the honorable thing.
