    Link: NFL Star Detained By Cops As Mother-in-Law Dies - Once he finally made it into the hospital, it was too late. Were the charges trivial enough to let him go?

    The title and description here makes it sound as if the mother-in-law was denied medical treatment.

    cop was a douche. it is not like the dude was going anywhere. he could have let him go in to see his dying mother and if he still wanted to hand him a ticket for the light then he could do it afterwords. i like the wife of the guy. she was like "my mom is dying. you understand?" and as the officer yells at her to get back in the car and tells her to show him her hands she just ignores him and walks into the hospital

    Cop: "All you had to do was stop and tell me what was going on... and I would`ve let you go."

    My ass, you didn`t let him go when you had him right there in front of the damned hospital, and you even wasted his time by giving him a goddamned ticket even AFTER the nurse came out and told you that he was telling the truth. What a crock of $#!t.

    The worst part for me as someone who went to school for Criminal Justice is the part where he says, "I can really screw you over...you`re attitude will dictate that, and right now it sucks"

    Paraphrasing of course but he said, "I can really screw you over" and "Take you to jail for running a red light"

    Thats so disturbing on so many levels...that someone would intentionally mis-use their authority and knowningly take someone to jail for no reason. But thats the problem with law enforcement today.

    Seriously, his mother-in-law was DYING. As in, you`ll never see her again. As in you want to say goodbye.

    Does the cop care? Nope. I hope the cop dies a long, slow, painful and lonely death.

    According to other reports, the wife actually tried running into the hospital right away, and the cop pulled his drating gun on her for it. Thankfully, she ignored it and got to be with her mother for her final seconds.

    This guy is a drating disgrace to cops everywhere.

    This happened to me exactly. Husband rushed me to hospital, cop saw us, blue lights right up to the ER door. We get inside, Cop says to my husband "you know I could arrest you for that". Husband says, "I was more concerned for my wife". Tennessee southern cop`s response?? "if this ever happens again, call the police dept. we will make sure you get there in a timely safer manner".
    Not all cops are redneck asses!!!

    First, who is this "NFL star?"

    Second, I totally agree with all the commentary about the cop regarding the abuse of power and that douchy speech he gave after being proved wrong. However, the guy came out screaming at him. I know it`s a heightened emotional situation, but all he had to do was calmy explain the situation and I think he`d have gotten a much better response. Doesn`t excuse the cops` behavior, but just something to keep in mind.

    I heard that the cop was fired over this, if I was the nfl player I would find the cop. Beat him to within an inch of his life and make sure to tell him not to run any red lights on the way to the hospital. What a dick.

    welcome to the police state. really they cops have nothing else to do but harass taxpaying individuals. How about actual criminals? The guy did run the red but he said he waited till it was clear. And with the time of night im sure there was no other traffic, which is another reason why we need more roundabouts but thats another argument. Really, we need to reign in our police force. They are there to serve us. Not harass us.

    More proof that the cops suck.
    And yes, M364N, censorship does suck too.
    I use the word "suck" to avoid being censored myself, and also because it`s the only word I can think of that would fit without getting replaced with "drat" or something.

    I`m surprised the cop didn`t try to use the "T" word when the nurse came out to justify his actions. The Guantanamo team could probably use an NFL player.

    Wow. Freakin` a-holes. If there is one time that a person should be allowed to run a red light it is during a medical emergency. That cop wasn`t listening to a word the guy was saying. You know what also pisses me off? The only reason we are hearing about this is because the guy is a sports star. If it was joe nobody this story wouldn`t have gotten much coverage. Either way, the cop hould have been more understanding and not so concerned about writing the freakin` ticket!

    It`s not like they were going anywhere. They were checking into a hospital, he could have easily gotten their identities as they were doing that. Or just charged it to the license plate. That cop was just taking a power trip, as usual.

    I just read the part about him running a red. Cops aren`t supposed to make judgement calls like "there was no other traffic" because there might be a time where someone thinks there`s no one comming and there is. Or maybe a pedestrian wearing dark clothing. You can`t make those decisions, because you could cause someone else harm. HE BROKE THE DAMN LAW! Get over it you pathetic crusading for the little guy drats. Fight th government with a rally or something.
