registration. What do you think of this. An NFL players wife received information that her mother was dying from breast cancer in the hospital. They immediately jumped in the car to rush to the hospital. He ran a red light, and a police officer gave chase. At the hospital, the man was telling the officer that his mother in law was dying, that is why they were rushing. The officer insisted on him giving his license and registration. First of all, when the man pulled into the hospital, the officer got out of his car with his gun drawn. He would not listen to the man about how he needed to get to his mother in law before she died. A nurse came out and told the officer about the imminent death of the lady, but he would not listen. Fifteen minutes later he let the man go, but it was too late the mother in law had already died. What do you think of this story? The police officer was suspended with pay.

That officer should have been suspended, if not fired, without pay! He's obviously an arrogant a$$hole who isn't fit to "serve and protect" us. Annie

That police officer got what he deserved. He is so stupid. I would have shoved him away. He shouldn't be a police officer at all. This is really unbelievable. If that officer didn't believe he should have gone with them to see the person dying. He should have never been a cop. Cops are people who protect and give security and help others but not that one..

Yes, he did not act professional at all. If the man was rushing to the hospital, the cop should have realized that it was an emergency.
