KERO-TV 23 County to pay $8.8 million to families of pedestrians fatally struck by deputy Bakersfield Californian Cohn said anyone — including law enforcement officers — who drives almost twice the legal speed limit and hits and kills someone…

Norman Gregory Fernandez‘s insight:

There is no excuse for law enforcement to not follow basic traffic laws unless they are on a call which requires lights and sirens.  I have dealt with cases where my client was hit by a suspect in a police chase,  while riding his motorcycle.  It was not pretty.  I have personally observed law enforcement drive at excessive speed with no lights or sirens, not use turn signals,  and even put lights on for a few seconds just to skirt a traffic light.  This case is a horrible example of what can happen when law enforcement violated the rules of the road without justification.
