Yes, he probably will. BUT, the kid will forever be dead.
Like I said, if anyone else caused the death of someone while working, I think a case of negligent manslaughter would AT LEAST be discussed by the DA.
Not saying it did not happen, just doubtful.
Just because you are a LEO, does not mean the LAW should not apply to you.
Or do you think the LAW should not apply to you?

Running away on a bicycle is a heinous offense in the United States. Driving erratically in a multi-ton patrol car, up and over sidewalks, on the wrong side of the road, tires screeching and virtually out of control... is not, apparently.
He could have easily crushed someone walking out of a shop door, or standing in a blind spot on the sidewalk, but alas, he hit the "criminal" who is also a "moron", apparently. By one poster's claim, bearing witness to a dead child who can no longer speak up to defend himself, because he is dead.
Only do such people come out of the woodwork when it is assured the victim who suffers brutality from the police cannot speak for themselves. Only when the victim cannot defend themselves, do these people go out of their way to call them names and shun them. When the victim is able to speak for themselves, the accusers are generally too much of a coward to speak against them. Lest they face any sort of honorable opposition, or be forced to face their own lack of integrity.
