  1. He needs to be charged with failing to reduce speed and failing to stop at a stop sign..He isn’t any better than anyone else who does wrong and hits another car….I see police all the time speeding and I don’t mean when they are responding to a call…The should follow same laws we have to follow. Now not all cops do these things but alot do…
