Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Jan 16, 2012

In this note, we review real-world surveillance video of a California sheriff en route to a reported stolen vehicle, prior to his fatal impact with two pedestrians as they crossed the street. Allegedly, the officer was traveling at a very high speed, without using his emergency flashers, which has become the basis for a wrongful death lawsuit.
