7. Norm Stamper (former Seattle Police Chief) said this is one of the major steps.

The other is to reform anti-drug laws. Part of reforming these laws is to put a wrench into the law enforcement unions/advocacy organizations. The rest of the developed world rejects unions for police as they are, first in the business of public safety, therefore they cannot be allowed to strike. Second, those enforcing the laws must not advocate for policies that will give them business at the expense of the freedom/liberties of the public. Both Calvin Coolidge and FDR held the same beliefs and strongly opposed union representation for public safety officials.

3. call me a moran because i believe him. he was looking for pedestrians. and he found one.

i don't know what kind of excuse it is because it's not a very good one at all.

he was trying to be really observant and looking for people, then comes across one illuminated by his own headlights and doesn't see it?

never mind the driving safety factor, if he can't spot a well-lit person right in front of him then he'll never make detective!

10. That's attempted murder

There's no other way to see it. It's beyond reasonable doubt that the driver had seen the man lying there. He stopped 3 times within view of the man before driving over him. Depending on how the law is worded, the best possible outcome the police officer can hope for is "I was sure he was dead, and I wanted to know what it felt like to drive over a body". But it's hard to see a police officer getting away with "I never thought to check if he was just unconscious".
