Awesome in action
A Florida Highway Patrol Officer pulled over Fausto Lopez after she had observed the man weaving in and out of traffic at speeds in excess of 102 mph. The kicker is that Fausto Lopez is a City of Miami Cop and was driving a patrol car.
The heroic highway patrolwoman pulled the C.O.M. cop over, who no doubt was expecting a pass for being a cop himself (admittedly I always toss my patrol cap on the dash of my car when pulled over, but I don’t take a Hummer on an off duty drive). Mr. Lopez’s excuse, he had an off duty job to get to and could not afford to be late.
Being a cop, like being an Officer, does not grant the right to flaunt the laws and regulations that we are employed to enforce simply because we have special status. Especially if we use that status in the pursuit of non-work related activities, hats off to the Florida Highway Patrol.
