    Even on patrol, we can do some bad things.

    After an honorable service period to end like this is a shame.

    Just thought I'd point out that nothing I've seen so far indicates this was anything but an accident, a momentary inattention. Could have happened to anybody.

    There's nothing that indicates he ran the light on purpose rather than not noticing the change.

    Get distracted for just a split second, if its the precisely wrong second, can be fatal in a car.
