    Reverse the roles here. The daughter is driving her personal car at high rate of speed and the police officer is walking across the intersection helping a stranded motorist secure his motorcycle. The daughter in her car hits the officer and motorcyclist and kills both. What happens to the daughter in that case? If all are equal under the law, should what happens to the daughter had she been driving also happen to the officer? Or does the officer's position grant him special privilege and therefore an immunity to the law? If he does have immunity, are you contending we have 2 classes of individuals under the law and thus one is held higher which the other is given privilege and held to a lower standard?

    IF everything in the article is true, the officer should be held responsible as if he were john q public. Is there a possibility that there are more facts about this that we don't know?
    Regardless, this is a terrible tragedy that should not have happened. I can not even imagine the families grief.
