    Wow that is aweful. Baltimore PD is having a very bad week. Another one of their officers was murdered last week too.

    According to the report (videos and photos concur), the police car rear ended the stopped engine. I have a sad feeling that this incident ended the way it did probably due to a lack of a seatbelt. We aren't invincible guys. None of us.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    You might be right about the seatbelt...I was looking at the photos (didn't watch the video) and thinking the wrecked cruiser didn't look horribly bad. I mean, I think I've seen worse wrecks survived.
