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.
