Government actions have unintended consequences. Even something as simple as trying to pull over a suspected drunk driver.
Tragically, a man was struck and killed by a vehicle early Sunday morning in St. Augustine Florida. It happened when a police officer started to pursue a suspected drunk driver.
But it wasn’t a drunk driver that struck and killed the man. It was the police officer behind the wheel of his cruiser who killed the innocent pedestrian.
As the cop whipped his car into a U-turn to pursue a vehicle for a traffic stop, he struck and killed a man crossing the road with his bike. The officer’s lights and siren were not on at the time. The man had no warning, and could not have predicted that the cruiser would reverse direction and slam into him.
To cover the cop’s tracks, the police and media tried to blame the victim,
[Florida Highway Patrol] investigators believe the pedestrian, Vincent Kinslow, 33, was impaired when he walked out into the road.
He was taken to Flagler Hospital where we was pronounced dead.
Kinslow was homeless and had been arrested in the past for DUI and battery.
