I don't really have a problem with cops. And many factors may have been involved.

But I must say I bet this wouldn't have happened if the cop wasn't there. The guy speeding probably was fine until he noticed late he was about to pass a cop going 100 mph, which caused him to slam on the brakes which lead to his loss of control.

So this was the cop's fault?

This dumb ass shouldn't be driving 100mph. And if he chooses to drive at that speed, he should be prepared to handle and react appropriately if a cop is present. Dude is only alive because the car pivoted to the passenger side while in the air before impact.

I'm not disagree'ing with anything you just said.

I didn't say the cop was at fault. Not even close. Just a passing thought that if the cop had not been there it might not have happened.

I hear you. We all have an instinct of hitting the brakes when seeing a cop... even when not speeding.

Even when I am not speeding and I hear my radar go off I quickly slow down
