The driver of the vehicle that slammed into Millville (N.J.) Police Officer Christopher Reeves' cruiser and killing the officer had applied to the department to become an officer.

Timothy W. Seidel II, who was fleeing officers at the time of the crash, had passed the civil service exam in May and applied to the department. Seidel was set to receive a rejection notice in the mail from police Monday after failing to meet residency requirements.

Prosecutors charged Seidel, 23, with two first-degree counts of aggravated manslaughter—one for causing death while fleeing law enforcement and another for recklessly causing death and indifference to human life, reports the Courier Post.

This POS murdered Off. Reeves just as surely as if he put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. I Hope that they give him the maximum and he serves every single minute of time.

This dirtbag was not one of us yet. If he doesn't get at least 20 years for this murder than justice wasn't done. This cop killer needs to fry in old sparky as far as I'm concerned.

He wasn't one of us. He acted just the way a criminal would. Hopefully they will impose the maximum sentence for this wannabe. Also hope word gets out to the other inmates that he was a wannabe. There is still a such thing as street justice!!!

Looks like the cops here don't understand what MURDER is. Murder is INTENTIONALLY killing someone, which is why he's being charged with Aggravated Manslaughter. This is a TERRIBLE tragedy for everyone involved. Moreso obviously for OFF. Reeves and his family. Many lives were ruined, and changed forever.
