This is the very reason I quit law enforcement years ago. Police today are so unethical, it makes me sick. The goons are more of a menace to society than the local criminals are. At least you know what the criminal is going to do, but can't trust the man these days. ALL POLICE ARE F'N COWARDS........IMHO!

I have two daughters myself. If anyone did this to my girls I would show them the wrath of what a former MARINE SPEC-OPS could do to them.

End!

But I've not had am cops training.. only an EMTs training. Cops do more than just arrest people. They are supposed to help people. I would not expect him to have provided her any care, I doubt he could have, but he could of put the girl in the car, the mother in the back and taken the girl to the hospital.
If there's anyone thats an LEO that has reason why they couldn't.. I'd love to hear it, because I am curious about it.


I don't know about New York... But, as far as Colorado is concerned the fact that there was an accident, where she hit a parked car, he can not just leave the scene. He would still have to wait for back up if that was the course of action he was going to take or for an EMT to show up and get her out of there. His duty is to the people, not just someone's asthmatic kid.

As a first responder he should have done more. The fact that he didn't even report the incident is suspicious. His handling of this situation was poor and I would expect better from some one carrying a weapon in a law enforcement capacity.

I do not think the girl died because of the cop though. I think the girl died because the mother and father were negligent.

Its probably true he couldn't leave the scene.

But isn't a persons life more valuable than some property damage? I would think so, and it's not like he didn't have control of the scene. If he had the mother in custody, then he had the person who caused the crime. But Im just speculating.. I really don't know how things work on the Law Enforcement side of things.

The fact that it took 4 days to report it? Now that should be telling, completely of his intentions. He probably hoped to cover it up.

Are you advocating the murder of police?

I'm pretty sure that's not OK.

Generally speaking... If the cops aren't helping people, aren't preventing or even solving crimes and instead, harassing and beating people, then what on Earth are they good for? Why are the American people putting up with the police forces? Why not just allow the people to arm and protect ourselves and disolve the police forces? I'm sure that our streets would be a lot safer.

In a lot of places here in this country, the public is far more fearful of the police than they are of the non-uniformed criminal. It shouldn't be that way at all. In fact, the police are supposed to serve the public. They are support to work for us. Instead, we serve them and we take a backseat to them, while paying them to do it. It's even hard to come by an officer that shows respect to those he is supposed to be serving. It would seem that cops have forgotten that they are supposed to be serving us, not the state or their own power trips.

It seems cops are just itching to give you a ticket or violate your rights, but when it comes to actually lifting a finger or stepping outside their power trips, they are nowhere to be found. When it comes to solving a real crime, they are nowhere to be found.

I almost hope that this incident sparks a war between the citizens of New York and the good for nothing police.

To note: I do know that not all police officers are bad, obviously, though the vast majority have lost their way and now they are a liability to freedom and justice. The police forces here in America, generally speaking, are huge failures.

Charge the cop with negligent homicide and get some justice this time... Don't let them laugh it up. I'm glad local news is still able to stand up for the little guy.

It is. But my ability to feed my family is just as important as her daughter getting medical attention. A car is a necessity in many parts of America, with out them we can't get to work, by groceries, pay bills, etc. I don't know what insurance laws are like in New York, I know around here no police report usually means no pay out. Other people's lives got involved when the driver decided to not wait and put everyone else at risk.

It is sad that someone died, but this could have all been avoided if the parents were acting responsibly.

It is very telling! His actions not only possibly contributed to the death of a young girl but also potentially put the owner of the parked car in a very bad spot. He should be fired and I hope he's sued for negligence.

Were I work as a paramedic in California response times average and are required to be less then 8 minutes from when the dispatcher picks up the phone to take the call. Once you excede 8 min the company will get fined for every minute they are late.
Also the police here will usually not do CPR the reason I was told when asked is because it leaves them exposed to people who can attempt to take there gun or attack from behind.

The proper course of action for the officer would have been to detain (not arrest) the mother for public endangerment and request an ambulance to his location for the child. At least by the book that is how it would have happened. Any traffic citations would take place at the hospital after the child was attended to. The mother would have been cited for reckless endangerment and the accident.

There were alot of mistakes made by both parties here, and unfortunately it cost someone their life.

You're absolutely right, it shouldn't be that way at all.

Ahh, I believe you're mistaken on this one. Their job is to enforce the law. Period. All that other stuff about 'protect and serve' is all fluff.

No, in the off handed chance you jeopardize the lives of everyone around and cause a motor vehicle accident because you are emotionally compromised leading to you having to deal with a police officer not aware of the pressing situation.


It doesn't really seem like you do.


I watched two infants die in a pile-up back in 2007. Almost lost my ex-wife in that accident and the only reason she is alive today is because I knew how to handle an emergency situation. She was my whole life but I didn't put anyone in else in danger or believe her life to be more important than the others around me. I triaged the situation, treated everyone for shock, and punched her IV because the Fire Dept was the first responder and the kid staring wide-eyed at the carnage didn't know how to do it.

So yes, I do understand and this is why I am a proponent for everyone knowing first-aid and CPR.

They called 911, they waited for the ambulance, it didn't come, they responsibly decided it was dire and that they could not wait any longer, they had equipment in the car but it wasn't working, they were conforming to the law until apparently the traffic was so heavy they did not have time to wait, which is why they drove her themselves, and they notified the officer their daughter needs help as soon as he got out. They hit a parked car. They probably would have arranged reparations afterward, and the officer could have lead them to the hospital with his sirens, then, when the girl was in safe hands, cited them or for the damages.

What more could they do? How much more responsible could they be? This is entirely on the officer's conscience.

This is the action that cost them their daughters life, IMO and not waiting for EMTs is rarely the 'responsible' action.

He can't allow them to follow him after hitting a vehicle. That would open up a whole 'nother can of worms. Also, they were driving the wrong way down a one way street. They put everyone else at risk to save their daughter, that is a no-no in this society.

Oh, I dunno, some where in the past 11 years of their daughter's life gone and learned CPR? Responsible enough to understand that just because you never learned CPR in case you daughter needed it, doesn't mean you can jeopardize the lives of other peoples loved ones.

Obviously, he did it poorly as he left the scene and did not report it. Then it took 4 days and a gas receipt to place him at the scene, at which time he admitted being there.

Poor job performance in my book.

Sure, and what if said parked car was a stationary pedestrian? Would their reckless endangerment of their child's life and those on the street outweigh their situation?

I do not think they are allowed to do that. Police are trained at high speed driving. Your everage citizen is not and therefore the police officer, I would guess, could be liable for any damage or danger the speeding civilian caused while they [police] essentially advocated reckless driving.

No, I still think that the police officer SHOULD have done far more. But the blame lies equally with the parents who SHOULD have remained where they were and waited for the ambulance and paramedics. They simply did not help the situation and in fact, made it worse.
