Are Cops Above the Law?

On November 1, 2011, a Miami police officer was accused of driving 120 mph on a turnpike because he was late for his off-duty job working security at a school.

 

The Florida Highway Patrol says officer Fausto Lopez was arrested at gunpoint after leading police on a brief high-speed chase.

According to a police report, a trooper spotted a patrol car changing lanes in a dangerous manner earlier this month. The report says the patrol car ignored warnings to pull over and led a brief high-speed chase before stopping near Hollywood.

Miami police spokesman Delrish Moss told The Associated Press on Saturday that any administrative action against Lopez will be taken after the outcome of the criminal case.

I guess even cops can’t get away with speeding. Maybe the officer will learn to turn on his lights next time he’s in such a hurry.
