no excuse for it, whatever the reason behind their actions. i was trying to understand until i got to the part saying there were calls for nearly an hour from several parties about him wandering on the road. this whole police department better receive steep consequences.

Once the man was in their custody they were responsible for his care. The guy could have been an illegal alien bank robber but I still wouldn't want to live with the feelings resulting from killing someone with my car due to police negligence.
