It's obvious that the police who covered the accident made sure that their alky buddy's test was done improperly and therefore get him off the hook.

Every officer on the scene of this accident should be fired. The victims and the deceased's family need to sue the hell out of the city, the IMPD, and the drunk; he in particular needs to lose everything.

How corrupt is this police department, and how arrogant are they going to be about their corruption? "Code blue" is just another term for obstruction of justice.

Brizzi is the absolute symbol of the corruption and incompetence in our legal system. I'm still waiting for him to find a way to get this cop off completely. Then they can go out drinking together and the cop can drive brizzi home.

So, it appears that yet another "greased pig" will escape the firm grip of the legal system.

These sleazebag cops make me sick. Any cop involved in an on duty accident should have a legal and admissible blood test administered.

The sad thing is that this is exactly how the cops will handle criminal behavior by one of their own. They will look for any and all available loopholes; instead of holding themselves to a higher standard of behavior than the general public. No wonder why so many people in our land; my self included; feel that the bulk of the nations cops are complete pieces of SH#T; who have absolutely no scrupples or shame.

When are thge Taxpayers going to join together and say "enough is enough. We are damn tired of cops rigging the system in their favor and we are going to fix it once and for all"?

Yeah, Brizzi can drive him in the Viper up to PT's Show Club. They can celebrate with their buds Tim Durham, Lincoln Plowman, Tim Motsinger, and Jack Cottey.

Our town is becoming known as the place for drunken political kooks and crooks.

Final word:

Never call a cop!

I made the pledge years ago. Never call a cop.Either they will ridicule your problem, make you feel stupid that you called them, or try to trump up a charge to arrest you on.

Cops are good for nothing except for killing and hurting people. Sometimes their victims are innocent, sometimes they are guilty.

If I was innocent, I would not take the chance to have a cop around. You never know when they will go off or show up drunk. They may kill you on accident or on purpose, and get away with it.

He won't escape completely. The blood draw WILL be allowable in a civil trial, and the victim's families are filing those now.

The family probably will win a civil case, and we - the taxpayers - will pay for his mistake.
Just as we've paid his wages, we'll pay for his mistake.
In the meantime, programs for the elderly, the handicapped, and our children suffer while our money is spent to cover a cop's ignorance.

From what I've seen, they are suing the city, IMPD, AND the cop himself. Unfortunately, the only way to get the city's attention is to cost it money.

If I were a family member of the guy that drunk cop murdered, I would feel obligated to take care of him myself outside of the legal system. Vigilante justice against criminals is not a bad thing.
