burdman30ott6, the fact that you scientifically know that highways aren't built for safe travel at 95 MPH means very little here, and your insensitivity towards the driver in this case is sickening.
They had a reason for speeding as fast as they were. They had a reason for placing human life in jeopardy. Whether or not it was a good reason is an argument you cannot win. There is a large portion of the human population that sees a family pet as being part of the family, and as part of the family its life is worth putting above others.

I understand exactly what you mean. Our society is all about "me". People will find anything to yell at and anyone to blame when they are in the wrong.
I just wish people would realize that laws are there for a reason and not disposable based on someones wants and beliefs.

If my kids were crossing the street at midnight on the freeway, I'd first wonder what they were doing.

These people had a dying pet, most pets are like family members, to have a pet need help that you cannot provide, Im sure you'd be using all means to achieve that need of help. I thought in cases like that, or fleeing from a tidal wave or whatnot, Your car was built to go beyond the speed limit for these types of matters.....
If not, why are our cars allowed to go past the national speed limit?

Travelling 95 mph because of a "snip" dog choking on something isn't reason enough to drive 95 mph. When did humanity become such "snip" that there would be outrage because of a police officer doing his job?
And furthermore, who in their right mind would send death threats to this hapless police officer? Threatening to kill someone over a dead dog sounds smacks of irony to me.
