Now that's a cop that has to be s____ canned ASAP.

Unless you have no choice you never park any car on train tracks and you GTFO off of them the moment you can.....especially if you have someone handcuffed and in a cage in said car.

Anyone who can accidentally leave a car on a train track can't be a cop

That happens all over the place. As they say, if you are racing a train and it's a tie, you lose.

This is why most Class A railroads in North America won't allow a locomotive on the lead end unless it has at least one, and typically five cameras on board.

Are cops allowing people who they handcuffed to be hot by trains in your neighborhood?

Here's an article about a cop who didn't park a car on the railroad tracks with someone handcuffed inside.

Congratulations.....

Adults.....

Understood.

We had an design engineer at the refinery I used to work at when I was much younger who designed a ethylene storage sphere. When they did the initial hydro-test it collapsed. He forgot to factor in the weight difference between ethylene and water when he designed the legs of the sphere.

Reminds me of the trainee bottle washer we hired fresh out of bottle washer school. I think his initials were JPW. He tried to eat a urinal cake. It was funny the first time, but then he tried two more times a week later.

Don't worry, the police will investigate themselves.

"Don't worry, the police will investigate themselves."

I am curious to see what they conclude though given that police cars and lawsuits aren't cheap I'm guessing they give super trooper the boot.

FTR saying all cops are monsters or part of a gang etc is stupid AF.

That doesn't mean there aren't idiot cops, racist cops, pervert cops and a number of other cops who shouldn't be in positions of authority.

The more body cameras the better.

The officer who parked on the tracks was placed on administrative leave and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Colorado State Patrol are investigating. The department has not released the officer's name, nor any explanation for why he thought it was OK to leave his car parked on train tracks. but, they released the name of the victim right away! PIGS!!!

These videos show police forcing Rios-Gonzalez"who is polite and obedient the whole time"into the patrol car and then going back to search her car. "What's going on? Ma'am, what's going on?" she asks the cops.

None of the officers in the video raise the possibility that leaving the car parked on the train tracks is a bad idea. And it later takes them a while to react after train whistles can be heard.

"Was she in there? Was she in there?" one officer keeps asking after the train hits, which seems odd since they had just put her in there.

The Platteville Police Department referred to it as an "unfortunate incident."

The unidentified officer who parked his vehicle on the railroad tracks is now on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. So, they get a paid vacation on the taxpayer $$$$$. The woman has nine broken ribs, a broken arm, broken teeth, a fractured sternum, a head injury, and back and leg injuries.

I don't doubt the veracity of what you've said.
I just don't know what it is you've said.
Guess I shouldn't have dropped out of high school chemistry!

This office is, and ABSOLUTELY should be fired ... . And also prosecuted for reckless endangerment at a minimum. He made NO effort to get her out of the vehicle. What a coward.
