Perhaps you saw the video last year. A Florida state trooper pulled over a Miami police officer after the Miami officer flew past the trooper on the Florida Turnpike driving faster than 100 MPH. The video went viral. The speeding Miami officer was off duty, on his way to a moonlighting gig. Eventually, after an investigation, the officer was fired. http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2012-09-14/news/fl-speeding-cop-fired-20120914_1_officer-fausto-lopez-chief-manuel-orosa-miami-police
The Sun-Sentinel followed-up with its own investigation, and based on Sun Pass data (it works like EZ Pass at toll plazas), they determined this was a wide-spread issue. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/speeding-cops/fl-speeding-cops-20120211,0,3706919.story This is actually a long report, but it’s worth the read if you really want to understand the problem.
Now, the trooper who pulled over the Miami cop is suing 88 officers in 25 jurisdictions for illegally accessing her personal information and harassing her. http://reason.com/blog/2013/01/04/florida-state-trooper-who-pulled-over-sp
I always wondered what ever happened to Fausto Lopez after Donna Watts pulled him over. I guess he’s been keeping busy, or at least his friends have been keeping busy on his behalf. The harassment is disgusting, and it should stop. I think Donna Watts is a hero. What do you think?
