    no.
    I honestly believe you do. It's called compassion.

    After watching this video all I can say is wow.
    This is disgusting and I have no doubts he will not only lose his job but will be made an example out of!

    "His behavior, in my opinion, did not exhibit the common sense, the discretion, the compassion that we expect our officers to exhibit," Kunkle said.

    Compassion?

    The only time I've heard of a cops showing compassion for a driver is when they are good looking & have a nice set of breasts.

    :P

    no.
    His superiors obviously feel differently.
    +1, plus this has nothing to do with letting the guy get away with anything. The cop could have followed he up there and did his business while they got to see a loved one take his last breath.

    That is how long it took for this officer to let Moats enter the hospital.
    In those 13 minutes his mother in law died.
    Despite being told by a nurse, hospital security officers, and another police officer that he was telling the truth, this officer chose to take his time and try and teach Moats a civil lesson.

    Disgusting.

    Most people here know that I was a police officer for several years.
    And most know that I tend to side with law enforcement in issues of civil complaints against officers.
    But this honestly disgusts me.
    He rolled a red light for christ's sake.
    It was night, and there was nobody else around save for one vehicle who allowed Moats to proceed.
    Is that offense really worth preventing a man from visiting a family member one last time?


    His wife and grandmother got to go inside.
    His father in law did not.
    His father in law was not able to be at the bedside of his wife when she passed away.
    All because a rookie cop (he is only 25) chose to take his time and spend 13 minutes writing a ticket that most cops can write in 2.

    He was pulling up to the hospital EMERGENCY ROOM for fuck's sake.
    Disgusting.
    I hope that cop loses his badge.
    It's not like the cop busted him speeding and running lights miles from the Hospital....He pulled right next to the emergency room!
    What the hell would you think is happening if someone pulled up to the emergency room entrance?
    An EMERGENCY!!!!


    I must commend him for recanting his statement that
    the cop should be fired.
    I would not have it in me to say "It's not up to me" to decide his punishment.

    no.

    definitely yes, after an explanation to the cop...my wife ran a few red lights and was speeding when a cop pulled us over. She explained her brother was in critical condition and we were going to the hospital...he let us proceed (told her to drive carefully) and provided an escort to the hospital. Common sense and some compassion is all it took.

    He is a young cop that was operating on adrenaline.
    I can understand why he was so excitable in the beginning, but after the nurses came out and told him the mother was dying, he should have apologized and let him go.
    Instead he was a stubborn prick who couldn't admit he was making a mistake.
    Agreed.
    I can understand the cop's initial reaction to pulling in to the parking lot.
    But to not take the time to asses then understand the Moats' situation and change his tactics/posture is inexcusable.
    I get so angry when I think Moats and and his Father in Law were denied the opportunity to be with a dying loved .... F*ck... I want to choke the f*ck out of that officer...


    Needless to say, if i was in Moats' shoes, I would have been going to jail that night.
