    I smell the stench of a cover~up begining….”it appears the bycyclist veered into traffic just befors the accident happened”? Is that the Detectives testimony? It doesn’t say any other witness made such a statement, but it does say ‘at least’ one witness reported that the cop was speeding. Not very clear reporting, and, of course, the Davie cops will take forever to ‘investigate’, so the general public’s interest will wane.

      if it was a cover up why would they even mention that a witness stated the vehicle was speeding;?

    I thought only Dade County cops were crooked. It seems the plague is everywhere. Must be the power that is given to theses parasites with AA degrees that has them thinking they are above human kind.
