Syracuse still has to explain to all why their domed stadium sponsored by and named after the Carrier Corporation has no AC.

If you can’t be the King, it’s almost as good to be the King’s Man.

Unlike you could say about most people, he’s lucky he hit a police car.

Outlaw computers in cars and that won’t happen...

But hey. He’s got immunity. So he’s got that going for him.

I don’t get a ticket either whenever I run a red light due to distracted driving and hit a cop. Sure

Of course. It's not like there's one law for the cops and another for us peons.

Nah, if it was a private vehicle he'd just arrest the victims.

The King’s word is the Law, and the King’s Man determines what the word is. Good work if you can get it.

Well, not if they were illegal aliens driving without insurance.

Better hope they weren’t driving with their dog.

If the dog was driving, would definitely be a dead dog.
If the dog was driving probably would have eyes on the road rather than on the computer.

This is one of the mysteries of life same as Muhammad hearing the voice of Allah revealing the (unholy) Koran.

There was a time when cops rode with a partner in the car. No more.
Now with just one officer in the car who has to drive, watch for cross traffic, operate a couple radios, computer and cell phone it’s a wonder this doesn’t happen more often. There has been a movement here to “Wait to text”, driving while texting or using a cell phone is illegal. Too bad it doesn’t apply to LEOs.

My Grandfather worked for Willis Carrier. Grandpa never had AC in his Syracuse home. I just always thought that because the winters there were so darn brutal, maybe they liked the heat? Not really sure ;)

Houston had a case where 2 firetrucks collided in an intersection and one fell over on a woman on a bicycle.

Maybe the sirens sould NOT sound the same so they can hear the other emergency vehicles coming.

Good point. A bit of tunnel vision on the part of the drivers too, methinks.

Good thing he hit another cop. Had he hit a peon, they would have been blamed.

The King’s word is the Law, and the King’s Man determines what the word is. Good work if you can get it.

But of course! Before too long, our civilization's concept of "Law Enforcement" will have completed its return to the days of Merry Olde England...
