How are our officers trained?

As I drove to the hospital in Woodstock this morning, I recalled an afternoon in Colorado when I had stopped a woman motorist who had been driving erratically and fast. When I pulled her over, she was crying so hard that she couldn't talk clearly.

She explained that she was rushing to the bedside of a relative who was dying; I've forgotten what relative - that had to be back in about 1977. But I remember the stop and the exact location. I hadn't thought of it for quite a number of years.

I recall being firm with her about getting herself under control or she wouldn't ever make it to that bedside. She took some deep breaths and got herself under control, and I sent her on her way. I don't recall that I even asked her for her license.

And then tonight I received an email from a friend in Woodstock about a Dallas cop and a traffic stop he made on a family rushing to a hospital bedside. The sender's comment was, "MCSD is loaded with guys like this."
