exactly. nor can you summarize what first aid he could have provided.
I don't know what first aid steps were provided.
The fact that it is a crime determines that it is not your right.
and fyi, i do my best to avoid making such a mess as to require the services of the clean-up crew.
Next time your in an auto accident I hope the other party believes it is ok to exact revenge on you. You'll be screaming for police.

The cop should have never pulled a gun in this circumstance. He couldn't defend himself without resorting to lethal force? Everyone is so quick to pull a gun out for any reason. A real man would have backed off and not escalated the fight, even if it meant taking a few blows from an enraged father.
assumption on your part and in this incident, the police WERE there and acting inappropriately.
If someone were to assault you after an accident you would in fact be hoping the police got there.
thanks, i'll be sure you're included to receive the press release
I have no doubt your in line for a darwin award

You apparently haven't had children, and there's likely no way the father had any indication the guy was a cop ... just some dude that hit and injured his 4 year old daughter.
Dad went overboard, in this case, when his efforts would have been better served by attempting to help / aide his daughter ... or, Perhaps even, having had a better eye out on her in the first place - 10 o'Clock at night. (?)
I don't even know how many times I'm going to have to say this, but I'll say it again.
Prove to me he didn't tend to his daughter first? Prove it.
Second, she was not left alone, she was with an 18-year old cousin, WHO WAS ALSO HIT. This starts to bring up a few more questions for me, personally. I'm leaning towards the cop being reckless considering he hit not only the child, but the cousin as well.
Was the father justified in "beating an injured man", no probably not. But I don't know what transpired during this altercation. Maybe the cop had some choice words after the accident that escalated the situation? Who knows.
It should also be noted that when faced with the choice of helping his injured daughter or attacking an injured man, he chose to ignore his injured daughter.
link a streetview of the area or you're lying.
so they were most likely not on a residential street.
not in the article posted but i did read it elsewhere and yes that statement appears in one of 5 articles ... does that make it true ??
clearly states he intentionally laid down the bike to avoid hitting the child
fantasize much ?
How would you react if there's an injured child lying in the middle of the street, a cop looks right at her, throws his arms in the air and goes "woah, not my problem" and walks away?
the one posted. do you need a link ?
what article are you reading?
more supposition ?? got any facts to go with it ?? nope ?? then your opinion is as invalid as any other who wasn't there, so why do you feel obligated to attack them or their opinions ??
The situation seems as if he were at a range of a few feet or less, he would likely be able to raise the weapon using only his wrist, since he hit him so low in the body, it could have occurred that way.

As much as I hate cops, if the father was actually watching the little girl she wouldn't be dead. She was 4 years old and shouldn't have been wandering around in the road.
