It is on video that she tells the cop, my father is dying, then gets back in her car and drives away .. she is later arrested and blames to police that she wasn't able to spend her father's last minutes with him ...

I am sorry, but I would fire the cop(s) had they not stopped these people .. they are doing their job .. I mean, are they supposed to believe everyone who says they are racing to the hospital to see a dying family member???

Or what about the people who say "Officer, I don't know how the drugs got in my car, they sure aren't mine" ... they should also be let off too ....

ok, had to rant ... sorry ......
well considering he pulled into the hospital and his wife ran inside crying hysterically, I don't think it would take Einstein to put 2 and 2 together

Not to mention a nurse running out to verify the story to the police...

The guy had no sense of compassion or common sense and we don't need police officers like that.

What he SHOULD have done was to let the people into the hospital and taken the man's driver's license. He could have waited for them to leave the hospital and then hand them the ticket, or just have the guy go to the police station to pick up his license and his ticket.

Running a stop sign is not even a jailable offense and does not justify forcing a man to miss the last few moments of a family member's life for some bureaucratic bullcrap.

What I see here is just some young punk on a power trip who has no business being a police officer.
Moose if you were talking to me, I was saying the "cop" was being an ass.

I think he was one of those in uniform, unfortunately, that use their badge to show others that he's the man. He's not wearing it to "protect and serve"; he's wearing it to show you who's boss. Those type of cops are dangerous for the very fact they carry a badge and gun.

No, Nate pretty much said what I was thinking and what I said except better.

I wasn't sure who you're ? was directed at. I thought maybe it was me and maybe I wasn't clear in who I was saying was "the ass". Just clarifying.

I posed it to everyone. I don't know if anyone could actually hear the audio and side with the cop.

I still side with the cops. Just because you have a loved one in the hospital and near death, doesn't give you the right to drive recklessly and endanger other people's lives.

If you're transporting a critical person to the hospital, I accept that. Going to get a final visit in does not justify it.

Ticket deserved.
