Check out the award given in this case investigating news reporting. Sun Sentinel got recognized for a three-month study. How fast do some cops run? 90-130MPH, including off-duty runs (for donuts?).
A long chase of a cop heading for his off-duty job went viral on YouTube.com, and it's not the only one.
From reason.com came this sentence: "A three-month Sun Sentinel investigation found almost 800 cops from a dozen agencies driving 90 to 130 mph on our highways."
And from the South Florida Sun Sentinel website came this: "The Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Monday won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its investigation of off-duty police officers who were endangering the lives of citizens."
Law-enforcement personnel should be the first to obey laws (all of them), not the last.
Thanks to the Woodstock Advocate reader who sent this story to me.
