Distracted cop slams into cyclist because he was looking at his phone.
But this is actually a god cop. He admits he was wrong, called the right authorities, and apologized. Yes, he did something wrong, but he went about to fix it the right way. Humans make mistakes and cops are human. The ones we should be calling out are the ones who use force to hide their wrong-doings and ones who intentionally harm other people. This cop is a good cop.
“Humans make mistakes“ He could’ve fucking killed that guy all because of a completely preventable “mistake“. He made the choice to look at his damn phone while driving, something he wouldn’t hesitate to write a ticket to somebody else for. Of course he admitted his wrongs (with significant downplaying of his actions and the victims injuries I might add) he was literally on camera and there was no denying it. Without the camera evidence I wouldn’t be surprised if he somehow made it the cyclist’s fault. Would you be making the same excuses for a civilian? What if he had hit a child on a bike? Some “mistakes“ absolutely deserve to be heavily criticized. Color me not at all impressed.
