'Don't jog to work you dumb #SNIP#' Cops mock critically injured jogger as he lay unconscious in road after accident
He was nearly killed in a horrific roadside accident, and now a jogger is furious at the wise-cracking cops who mocked him as he clung to life.
Lying in a pool of his own blood after being hit by a truck, Seattle man Tim Nelson had blacked out when first responders arrived.
One officer was operating under the mantra of 'to serve and disrespect' as he remarked to a colleague: 'That's why you drive a car.

Cops, doctors, ambulance drivers, firefighters, military all have a propensity toward morbid humor. I think it's messed up but it's not new, and certainly isn't isolated just to cops. I'm not condoning the behavior, but I also don't think it's as bad as it seems. Flame away.
There is a difference between cracking a joke on the sidelines versus doing it live on the dash cam that the victim gets to view.

You're completely taking this out of context, I'm not even sure why you responded the way you did since none of your logic applies to what has been said. If anything, it's your opinion of how you have interpreted our reactions and perception of the situation.

I hope these D-Bags get fired.
I don't want losers like that responding to my daughter's accident. Those are the same scumbags that fondle unconscious victims if the opportunity arises. Sorr for stereotyping but it fits.
We need to stop passing this off as "oh it's just a couple of idiots". I
f you look around the whole system is based on a bunch of idiots. Wake up people!

Psychologically they react this way to protect themselves from what they see day to day. For the mind to take every instance of their job seriously, might cause irreperable damage. Cops are like this as a defense mechanism.
It's human. If you were a cop you would be doing it too, probably just under your breathe.
And dont give me your holier then thou "I would never!" attitude, your not a cop, you have not lived their lives, so don't be judgemental.
