An eye for an eye? What is this guy planning on doing, waiting until that cops mother-in-law is dying and then stopping the cop on his way to the hospital so as to make him miss the last goodbye?

It is good to know we can break the law if, in our opinion, we have a good reason for doing so. That should really cut down on the court dockets, and improve the level of crime in our cities. (Hey if I'm late for work, I could get fired from my job, and if that happens my family could go hungry and die - so yeah Mr. Officer, you better let me get going, and now I'm going to have to speed even faster because you wasted my time.)

Look, obviously you all haven't been in this man's situation. He was hurrying to the hospital to try and say goodbye to a loved one. When the officer heard what was going on, all he had to do was follow them inside the hospital, verify the story was true with hospital officials (without detaining the family at all), and then be on his merry way. How ridiculous that compassion cannot be first on our plates when we face a life and death matter. Shame on the officer for the way in which he chose to handle this, and shame on you all who cannot feel compassion for this family. Believe me, you ALL will one day be faced with a very similar situation. I hope you get to your loved one in time to say goodbye.

And what happens when he or any person is rushing to the hospital,runs a red light,stop sign or whatever and inadvertently hits and kills someone in the process. Do you say, well,he was only trying to say goodbye to his dying family member?

Is that what you tell the dead persons family?

Police are the ones that have to deliver that message,not the driver who killed their loved one.

The Police officer in this case may have been guilty of insensitivity but he broke no other laws or policies in what he did.
