A Bereaved Mom's Life-Saving Message for Cops – A Must Read!
June 22, 2012
This powerful and compelling article starts with the question: “How would you describe a state trooper driving his patrol car at 126 miles per hour on a busy Interstate highway while using his in-car computer and chit-chatting on his personal cell phone with his girlfriend?”
Two sisters, ages 18 and 13, were killed when this trooper lost control of his vehicle and it crossed over the median into opposing traffic.
It ends with this statement: “Fast driving is part of the culture of law enforcement that needs to be revisited.”
