flyer74 Looks like to you it's very easy to criticize police officers but I can't say it's a smart thing to do especially considering you have NO idea as to why the officer may have been running the red light. It's easy to jump on the bashing cops band wagon but boy when you need them I'm sure you won't hesitate to call. How about bashing the woman that is applying her makeup while driving or the man that's eating a burger while driving? No?? Instead let us constantly criticize the men and women that put their lives on the line for people like you. I once participated in a citizen ride along and was shocked at what goes on in this town and what our police officers have to deal with. It is a shame that these men and women do not receive the respect and courtesy they deserve.

@MyOpinionCounts - Thank you for making my point! It was an accident! I am simply stating that people immediately comment the officer was at fault when they do not know the facts. Maybe you should re-read the article because it does not state using a phone as a contributing factor. As for cops driving horribly that is laughable. You have no idea what they are doing where they are heading and why. They maybe speeding to get to a call where someone was robbed, raped, or maybe another officer needs help. It's sad and pathetic people are so free to criticize the police. But hey that's just me apparently starting stuff and stating my opinion if you don't like it well........sounds like a personal problem.
@bscj2010- You're not surprised really? Because you hear of so many accidents involving police officers. Did you ever stop to think before you entered your pointless opinion that there are always police officers on the street 24 hours a day, that they work long hours and deal with highly stressful situtations day in and day out? Or did you stop to think that maybe the cops are driving fast because they are trying to get to a call to perhaps save someone's life (which by the way may some day be yours)? No I'm sure you didn't. I'm sure you thought you'd just sit back and critize the police for an ACCIDENT. You should take the time to look up the word accident in the dictionary. These officers put their lives on the line everyday for people like yourself and instead of being grateful you just criticize. I would recommend you keep your opinion of police and how they drive to yourself.
@gracierm24- What are you just saying? First of all you weren't there so you're basically talking on something you don't know anything about. Second of all who cares if the officer was on the phone or not? I'm sure you have driven and talked on your cell phone as well. So here you are trying to insinuate the officer was on the phone and automatically that means the officer is at fault right? Because I'm sure the other driver wasn't on the phone or even other drivers on Mockingbird weren't on their phones. Geez if you're going to leave a comment on a page at least have the curtesty to say something intelligent.
I find it interesting that people seem to rejoice over the Steven Tyler win. Yay! Let's praise the man who goes after police officers just because he has some type of personal vendetta. Let's celebrate the fact that more of our tax dollars will be wasted. Let's be happy the man who played on people's ignorance is back in office. When Steven Tyler was asked on a scale of 1-10 what is his working relationship like with police officers Tyler actually had the nerve to say a 9. 9 Really?? That's interesting and far from the truth. Well Victoria you wanted the Guard Dog that bites........its just too bad he bites the wrong people.
