Why was the police officer involved in the Ryan Moat's incident forced to resign?
What a load of garbage. Cops can't even do their job now. You're letting the population bully not only teachers, but now cops, who are trying to do the right thing. Imagine what would've happened if Moats killed someone. It might be the police chief resigning today.

Do you understand the whole story? The cop went way over the top. He didn't let Moats go even after other officers verified the story.

You are right if Ryan Moats had hurt or killed someone by his actions things would be very different.

...He ran a red light, with his hazards on, and was held up at gun point? How do you compare that to shooting someone...? The cop was in the wrong...he deserved what he got.

Do their job??? Are you kidding me? He was a little man with a badge and was taking advantage of it. I hope he never finds another job in law enforcement again. If he had been trying to do the right thing, when he found out what was going on he would have gotten out of the way, maybe even offered some assistance. The... More

Most people don't drive through a red light with their hazards on, and into a hospital parking lot after murdering someone. It should have been obvious to this officer that an emergency situation was at hand and his ambivalent attitude embarrassed the PD. He could have escorted them inside the hospital.

I don't know full details of the story, but did it never occur to the officer to offer a police escort to the hospital? The motto is to "serve & protect", no?

If some cops would do their job like they should then there would not be a problem. This Dallas cop gets no free pass on his type of behavior.

Yeah, it was blown out of porportion, but still, I think that was cold that the cop detained him for so long. I also feel for the cop as well, but I think he should have tried to speed up the process to help Moats out. Check out the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzjg2EhNLY0&feature=related

when some one goes more than a few blocks when the cop turns on the bubble gums and siren, that person is running from the law!! this is hard to say, cause I don't like cops, but the cop was in the right!
Answered By: Eric M - 4/2/2009
The officer was in the right up until he was given the reason why Moats ran the red light and it was verified that his mother-in-law was indeed dying. BTW, he did slow down to make sure no one was coming and rolled through the red light with his hazards flashing. It wasn't a high speed chase by any means either. Yes... More

You think you know all the facts, has the Officer spoken with you. You are assuming he was forced to resign. Moats did not kill anybody. You have alot hate in your heart. Your Racism is showing. Why do you support a Officer that do not do his job. You will probably support a Cop writing traffic tickets during natural... More
