Thugs with badges & guns. These LEO's should not only be thrown off the force but thrown in prison for flat out murder. A Total disgrace..

You are an idiot.

Not murder, but arguably negligent manslaughter.

I 3rd on Jon and raise one Sam as coming close to a Jon. I love all the armchair quarterbacks. Let's totally disregard it says accidentally. We would had to hold criminals accountable for their behavior which put them in harms way in the first place by committing a crime. Let IA do their job.

The is why was the second subject running to the motorcycle? Did he just commit a crime? Was he a fleeing felon? Sometimes the people who are citizens don't have a clue. They're just plain ignorant as in the case of Jon. The truth will prevail.

I love this. Question how many of you can stop a cruiser in 2 feet or less going even 30 miles an hour? Unless you have magic cars looks like an accident. Lets give the officer the benefit of the doubt, and his day in court. I looks like to me that those two chuckle heads slowed while making a turn on a motorcycle, which slows down a hell of a lot faster than a full size sedan, and got rear ended. It did not appear to be malicious, intentional, or negligent from my view. Just my two cents.

Trooper is innocent victim, view from my saddle.

Bot enough info but if you are running from the police, the consequences are born of your own decisions.

Code Three syndrome. I'm NYPD retired and the radio car appears to be going way too fast. I think he would have taken out the red fire alarm box with the RMP. Bill has is pretty right from the video.

Too much missing...

Despicable and repugnant abuse and criminal negligence of criminal and civil litigation by excessive force resulting in involuntary manslaughter with an injury. This misnomer public servant needs to be adjudicated and indicted in a court room of law as well as being terminated and SUED after he is found culpable criminally under the department policies.
