    sad and unfortunate for everyone involved, I think the guilt to Anderson will be far worse then any legal punishment, everyone makes mistakes. I feel for both sides and hope the best for everyone.

    With the officer traveling at 94 MPH the failure to yield theory is pretty much out the window. We are held to a higher standard. Even running code the speed probably far exceeds department policy. I feel for the parents of the children.

    There were to many wrongs in this incident and not enough rights. The only one to come out on top will be the lawyer with his pockets full.

    Very tragic no matter which way you look at it. Only time will tell the outcome. Going to be a long hard case.

    Tragic for all involved. There is no legitimate excuse for the actions of all parties involved (underage drinking, speeding, failure to yield). Nothing can be done now to reverse what has already been done. Officer Anderson should hope and pray that losing his job is the highest penalty that he pays for his actions, but I feel that the criminal charges and civil law suit that is sure to follow will have a far more long-range impact upon his future. So sad, so sad, for everyone involved.

    Sad for both parties involved.. May God be with all that were involved. Two wrongs do not make a right.

    ooo, I guess we should have expected this. Its unfortunate it has to end a police career because of using bad judgement on one occassion that ultimately ended 2 lives so short. Bad all around IMO.
