    I looked it up and apparently the drunk driver survived and faces charges.

    The officer did the equivalent of throwing yourself on a hand grenade. Pretty frightening stuff. Give her a medal, a promotion, and a desk. My hat’s off to her.

    Right on Casey, her actions saved many Innocent lives.

    It kind of irritates me that these special events can shut down highways. Bicycles, runners, parades, etc. Surely there are some non-highway venues where they can do their thing. But if they must use the highways why shouldn’t they pay the taxes. One day closing the bridge = $100,000. Seems fair.

    Another example of why I proudly fly a Thin Blue Line American flag at my home and one at my business.
    We need a lot more Police Officers like her.

    “We need a lot more Police Officers like her.”

    Yes indeed. Less or no pulling people over for seatbelt and other revenue collection.

      Anonymous- so do you think that some folks should be exempt from the laws that everyone else should have to follow? Should fines (revenue) be eliminated and incarceration be used instead?

      It does not take a genius mentality to figure out how to use a seatbelt.

    That is a true Momma Bear…

    We all complain that modern vehicles can’t be repaired without computers and special tools. All true. But the ability of modern–post 2000, maybe earlier–vehicles to keep occupants alive in what used to be deadly crashes is just awesome.

    I covered many crashes as a reporter and as an EMT in the late 1970s through the early 1980s. As the driver in the heavier vehicle, the officer might have survived back then IF she was wearing her seatbelt. No way would the other driver live. And, back then, there would have been a lot of bent metal and perhaps a bumper on the ground. Nowadays there’s a big halo of broken parts expanding away from the impact. All of that soaked up some of the energy and kept it out of the passenger compartment.

      Now a days it is $100k of spent stolen money just because.
