I’m one of those rare birds that think a policeman’s death in the line is, while sad, not any more tragic than any other premature death. That said, I read this story this morning and got a little hot. Seems two different “news crews” were covering a police chase and collided with each other, killing all on board. I feel terrible for the families of these pilots and reporters, but, good Lord, do we really need “live” coverage of a police chase? There wasn’t a celebrity involved. Hell, even a psychopath like O.J. Simpson had the good manners to elude the police in second gear. No, this was some sad sack in flatbed truck, no doubt inebriated to the point where escape seemed plausible. My anger here is that these people died exploiting some moron’s bad day. What if they had collided with the Police Helicopter? Like I said, I believe police personnel are paid to risk their lives, but let’s not make their job any harder, ya know?
