    The FHP did the right thing. First off the police car may have given the impression that the car was stolen. Secondly, what the hell, I can't believe any officer in his right mind would go that fast while not on duty and not in hot pursuit. Shows how little he really valued the career he had as a LEO. I give a big bravo to the FHP for having the audacity to do her job.

    On a side note I knew an officer that as a rookie was told to pick up a pizza pie and deliver it to the pct forthwith for the LT. The rookie picked up the pie and did lights and sirens to the pct. I told him he was stupid for putting his job & life on the line for such a joke. He never got in trouble for it. One just can't make these things up, but they are fun to remember when they turn out well.

    professional courtesy can only go so far, when it comes to protected the public from people who wear a uniform or badge just to help themselves along, something has to be done. its always a bad day when we(fhp) have to be the ones to enforce the law. just think if he would have wrecked, killed several people, he was not in performance of his duty, we would have to charge him with something a lot more severe and he possibly spend the rest of his life serving time. now speaking for the fellow troopers response the video is edited and only showing parts, i was not there and can not judge.

    Kiss that career goodbye!!! An off duty gig is definately no reason to be going that fast!!! So what if you're a little late.

    Definitely, the Miami PD officer was reckless, driving at such ridiculous speed, because he was apparently late for a side gig. But the trooper, cuffing and placing a fully uniformed Miami PD officer in the back of his squad as he 'investigated' this incident? I would have definitely made some sort of contact with a Miami PD supervisor to inform him of the reckless manner in which this officer was operating a squad car, but that would have been about as far as I would have taken it. I can't comment on how other LE agencies maintain their squads, but as far as the agency I retired from, I wouldn't have driven any squad there over 70 mph, under
    any circumstances. I'd be too afraid that the squad would fall apart, or the tires would disintegrate. Hopefully,
    the Miami PD officer stopped won't have access to a take home car, since he used such poor judgement in
    this instance. Hope they have a foot post available for him!

    Miami Officer only needed to pull over and explain situation. He chose to wear his BADGE ON HIS FOREHEAD and now it just might cost him his job. "Serve and Protect" not "SWERVE AND ENDANGER" !

    Do I envision a potential problem between Miami PD and FHP in the future?
