This is so sad, i just hate to see this things, people who have a family and fight to protect us everyday, this is nothing but very sad.
Most of us agree this is a tragic event, but as someone who has driven a emergency vehicle for 20+ years I would like to comment on the circus I, and several of my friends witnessed this morning between 0800 and 0900 on various highways in and around Miami Dade County. I know there are specific guidelines on when a law enforcement officer is authorized to use emergency lights and siren. Reporting to a funeral that had been scheduled more than 24 hours prior is not or should not be one of those times. I wish the News 4 Helicopter had been covering State Road 836 at 0830 this morning and seen the officers from Hialeah, Miccosukee, and Miami Dade I witnessed weaving through rush hour traffic at a high rate of speed with lights and in some cases siren in order to hurry up and wait for the procession to start two hours late for the fallen officers.
I am sure some policies will be reviewed in the wake of these shootings. I hope they also review the way officers conduct themselves behind the wheel. I applaud FHP for restricting cell phone use while driving.
Thank you for this. As so many police officers feel they are above the law. Hey I am sorry tow were killed. But when they signed there name on the dotted line they knew it could happen. Just like the military you sign you may pay with your life.
