This story really pissed me off. I have a strong respect for law enforcement and all that Cops do, but this shit here is uncalled for and some heads need to roll behind this.
(I would add a link to this story, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet). The above picture is of young man from Gary, Indiana. He was involved in an accident this past weekend that killed two of his friends. The kids were on their way home from a party. There was probably alcohol involved and they were young so they were probably driving too fast for the road conditions, so they ended up upside down in a field. Shit like this happens. It is sad, but hey, it happens.
The part that gets me riled up is the fact that 2 of the boys in the car were able to walk away from the crash, but there were two that were ejected from the vehicle. The driver managed to climb a hill back onto the road and he attempted to flag down a passing motorist. Well of course nobody would stop and help him(young black man, covered in blood, standing in the middle of the road, in the middle of the night.... You remember this is America right? And Indiana?) But some concerned citizen did call 911. I would love to hear the audio from that call... Anyway I digress....
When the Fuzz and paramedics arrived the driver tried to explain that 2 of his friends were missing and that they needed to be found. The Fuzz blew him off. They carted the driver and his friend off to the hospital, treated them and sent them home. No more was said about the 2 missing kids.
The next day the parents of 1 of the missing teens went out to the accident site. What did they find several feet from the accident?
Their DEAD son!!! And close by their son was the body of the other missing teen!!!
Now my question is this.....
Why the hell did it take this kids parents to conduct a rescue mission for their child? Ain't that supposed to be the job of the people that we pay to protect and serve?
They found their son and his friend the next day for crying out loud!!! Do you think that maybe their lives would have been saved if the damn Police did their jobs?
How about if this accident involved young massa Tom and his little sister Becky? Do you think that maybe the Fuzz would have conducted a better search for the massas kids?
Of course the Indiana state police or who ever the hell was called to the accident scene has circled the wagons. "The investigating officers followed procedure... blah blah blah..."
And of course the blame is all on the driver. He was driving at an excessive speed and he had been drinking.
Where is the concern for 2 black kids whose lives could have been saved?
I hope that I am not the only one to be upset about this story. If anyone wants to read the story for themselves, go to CNN.COM. The article is a link called " cops should have looked for bodies".
