Hey, where's the compassion. He was trying to get his wife there; it was her mother who was dying.
Apparently, he pulled over some other ball player's wife before this incident and detained her for several hours.
I know they shouldn't be speeding and going thru red lights, but I probably would be doing the same thing to get to my dying mother or loved one.
Something else is going on here with this police officer like he was power tripp'n. I think they probably gave him the option of either quitting or getting fired. So I'm thinking he had done other things and this was just the coup de gras that put the final nail in his police career.
They played the audio and video on tv and you could hear what he was saying. I think he was being an ass.
