FTY, that's it? How about vehicular homicide? RIP Brother Foster.

Sad, another brother dead. Im not a mortar, but is it common for motor officers to be riding bikes in Dec in Louisiana? I don't know the weather there (I'm in AZ) but seems it would be a bit wet/possibly cold there. I know I ail get a back lash from you motor cops out there, but other then a very busy and congested city why do we have motor officers and not just traffic officers? Im kind of anti motor myself since so many of our brothers have died on those when they could do the same 9or nearly the same) job in a car and perhaps we would not lose so many LEOs.
