It was just the disrespect that the cop showed by saying that this man's dying mother-in-law "didn't matter." You just don't say that to people regardless of what laws they've broken.
That's true. You don't badmouth the dying family members. I thought the uproar was because the cop pulled them over and didn't just let them go when their reason was explained.
