These types of incidents seem to be piling up--cops are driving too fast or recklessly, and crash into civilians, often with tragic results. Fortunately, it seems like nobody was injured too bad in this case. Doesn't even look like it's being treated as an act of negligence. It's too bad--they should really usher the officer to a drug test immediately like they do to anybody driving a forklift who has a collision of any sort. It's too late for that, but that's the kind of response we would like to see when these incidents occur.

Here's some reporting from the Press-Enterprise:

RPD strikes and injures blind man with cruiser

What was it, about a year ago that an RPD officer struck an elderly woman who was crossing the street in the Casablanca neighborhood? And now we have another officer-involved collision, this time with a blind man? These officers for as much as they talk about "public safety," continue to reveal their hypocrisy every time they injure another community member through their negligence. We don't have much information here, but we will be posting as more becomes available.

Riverside sheriff's deputy tries to shoot family dog, shoots own leg instead

Finally, a little bit of justice in the news, even if that justice is of the poetic variety. This unidentified deputy, an agent of the court, was serving someone some paperwork over on the East Side when he got spooked by the dog, who was probably just trying to protect its family from the act of aggression like any good dog would. And the deputy, rather than dealing with the situation like a rational human being, opted to take out his weapon and shoot at the dog. However, due to factors unknown, although presumably not more than utter ineptitude, the officer shot only himself.
