On 3/18/17 at approximately 2034 hours, my partner, Officer Thebeau #8402, and I, Officer Harrell #3441 were working patrol assigned as unit 3A22. We were in full police uniform and operating a black and white marked police vehicle.

We responded code-3 from Marengo Ave and Orange Grove Blvd.
An officer began a routine stop for someone exceeding the speed limit but the driver of the sports car they were trying to pull over speed up instead of slowing down. During the course of this chase the speeds of both the police car and the sports car rose to above 100 miles per hour. At the end of the high speed chase the officer lost control of their cruiser and ran up on a sidewalk hitting a pedestrian, ultimately killing the pedestrian. In the same moment hearing the commotion caused by this accident the sports car driver looked back and proceeded to crash the sports car. Following the impact the sports car driver was killed and now people are looking for a place to distribute the blame for these two deaths. It must be decided if the officer is at fault for these deaths and the best way for the police department to act following these deaths. The legal, ethical and moral aspects of each situation must be evaluated. After this evaluation is made decisions must be made that incorporate and satisfy all of these variables in a manner most favorable to the police department.
There is a near, almost invisible line that has been ignored by many individuals whom have the right of power and those of whom manipulate his/her power because of his/her employment position. For example, there might be a Prosecuting Attorney that will seek justice that is written within the guidelines of the law, yet still have the ability does his/her job with the professional standards, and the compassion that is needed to treat the victim as well as the, constitutional rights of the defendant, without any aggression or prejudice , and maintaining the integrity that it takes to earn and uphold the respect of the citizens of the United States of America, thus giving back to the meaning of “And Justice For All” , allowing the restored faith of that citizens of the United States, to flood back into its Criminal Justice System. However, this is not a picture that is painted so pretty. For some, proseuctoral power is taken over and the thin invisible line is crossed. To some, the power they have behind their position, causes them to lose all the moral and ethical pursuit of the objectives. The problem then is, that they find them selves in a battle of proseuctoral power VS. acceptance of responsibility.

In the US and state court systems, judges defense attorney’s and the prosecutor’s office have full immunity in carrying out their duties. In short if either a judge or the District Attorney’s reaches a wrong decision or if a decision is reached by employing means that run contra to judicial and/or legal ethics that person cannot be held accountable except by the state bar or judicial authority. Prosecutorial misconduct takes advantage of these immunities designed to shield the ethical at-torney and employ them for reason ranging from power to pressure, in order to cut corners and an over reaching need to “Win at all Costs.”
