    The cop RAN the red light!!! I know ppl who saw this crash!! They were there!!! BUt of course they’d never say the cop was at fault now would they?

      Sure you do. You’ll probably also say the driver of the suv was African American and being targeted by the police.

      It immediately sounds like you hate all police. We really do need a word for that like, “policist”. We need a word to describe comments of hate toward police officers. We have words like sexist and racist. Why not one for hatred of police since it seems so prevalent and chic nowadays.

        No I don’t even live in that area. I’m saying the Dallastown will see more PSP come through to get to red lion since they stop using local PD

    Accidents happen….I am sure no one else has ever ran a red light by accident…just Police…ya know…they just want to kill everyone they see…even by motor vehicle….wait…I bet it was Bush’s fault…yep…thats it.

      no, no, no
      We’ve had 6 years of Obama. Can’t blame Bush anymore. Everything is now Obama’s fault until 2 years into the next president’s term.

    So, hey ya’ll. Why are cops made to work 12-hour shifts? Why are hospital doctors and nurses made to work 12-hour shifts? Do you think you might run a red light by mistake if your life had 12-hour life-and-death stress shifts every week? Think about it and if you aren’t sure how it may affect you, apply to the force and put some spice in your life.

    Wonder if this was the same state cop i saw this morning doing 80 on 74 in dillsburg for no reason

    • OneMan'sOpinion

      How do you know it was for no reason? Some calls call for no lights or siren. Did you clock 80 or is that an estimate based on expertise/experience?

    • OneMan'sOpinion

      Don’t you know that would only have been the case if the officer was white and the SUV driver was black? Since that was not quickly reported, it must not have been the circumstance.

    Actually the cop did run the red light and almost killed my grandparents. The asshole just stood there as they were begging for help. But yeah, i guess it was there fault…
