I submit that you know nothing at all about the deceased officer or the specific details of his death.
It does not speak well of your objectivity, to say the least, to draw conclusions about this man or his actions, especially if he acted in accordance with his training or even if he just plain made a fatal mistake.
Regardless of whether or not the grand jury found sufficient evidence to return a true bill in this case, two families and a community have been shattered and that alone is deserving of some modicum of reverence.

Infer all you want I was just stating fact.
If person A steps out in front of speeding car X, person A is a moron. If that's what happened here, well there you go. If it isn't, the statement is still true.

It is very sad to see so many people refer to this deceased person as stupid, dumb, and moron! There has been a lose of life and if that was your father, son, brother you would not appreciate those comments, no matter how big of a mistake it was for him to step out in the road.
I feel that everyone who refered to this individual as stupid or any other demeaning word should apologize, whether it is a one liner or not. That chose is up to each individual. I know cops fustrate alot of people since alot of them abuse there power, but there are good cops out there and he might have been one of them.
As a Canadian i find alot of American police procedures to be "reckless" In Canada if there is a high speed pursuit in which the person starts to drive recklessly they call off the chase. Due to the safety of the public, they catch the guy later most of the time with his license plate or citizens help. The lose of one life is too many....SAFETY FIRST.
May the family of the officer find peace in there hearts to move on, and may the women who hit the officer find peace in that she did what she could. Cause only her, herself knows if this was perventable and has to sleep at night with those thoughts.
Love and Light

The first time I saw this 'Step-Out-Technique' used i nearly hit the guy. The speed limit was 45, and I was going probably about 50ish.
Sorry, this technique should be banned all-together.....
