    Maybe the pursuing officer was familiar with the particulars of this case in Ohio a couple years ago, and didn't want to find herself similarly situated.

    I agree with dukalmighty !! He should also be charge for the wasted fuel and miles on the car. I as a taxpayer have to pay for mine.

    Yikes. I wish there were more details. How's she to know that the officer wasnt going somewhere priority? Did she radio to MPD to find out if they had officers en route to a priority call? Did the speeding officer think that maybe he had some backup with him, thinking that the car behind him was simply following thinking that he was en route to a priority call? Theres a ton of quarterbacking that can be done here.

    But.... now that we know he was simply "late for work"... he's a fool. He was reckless and out of control. He put alot of people in harms way, and makes all LEO's look like idiots.

    Amen. The badge doesn't mean when you openly flaunt the law (or at least it shouldn't). Furthermore, I don't agree that he should be able to take the public's car to his off-duty job. I get that some departments have said you can go to and from home in John Q. Public's car, but I think they should be pretty strict about that. After all, perception is everything.

    Good for the trooper.

    Driving a vehicle over the posted limit is a violation in every state I'm aware of regardless if it's an emergency vehicle or not.

    The ONLY time it is OK to disregard limits is on official business while displaying emergency lights and sounding a siren. Remove official business, turn off the lights, or stop sounding the siren and you are violating the law if operating outside of posted limits.

    Around here if a private party wants police as security, they pay $x/hr for each officer and $y for each car they request, so the dept. isn't providing the car for free. Not sure if thats how Miami operates but there is a possibility that tax payers aren't footing the bill for the car. Although in this case he'd probably burn up any fees in fuel easily.

    That type of action (the Miami Officer) would have got me fired back when I was active, and I think it would still get you fired today. Technically, he was making a mockery of his own job, and all of those he works with.

    Trooper did her job, but she was pretty lax on the L&S application. Lights were on, then off, then on again. Siren was not on for most of the chase. LEOs are under the law just like the rest of us. It is refreshing to see one getting treated appropriately for obviously and intentionally breaking the law. So often they get a pass under - professional courtesy.

    Lights and siren are not always the best nor safest way through traffic.

    But if operating outside of traffic laws it is the ONLY legal way.


    When driving in traffic, if the majority of vehicles are cruising at 65 mph in a 55 zone it could be argued that the safest thing would be to keep moving with the traffic. I doubt the judge would concur if you tried to defend your 10 over citation.
