Killer Cop Demands Workers Comp!

Steven Greenhut: An Illinois cop who killed two sisters while he was driving 126 mph and chatting with his girlfriend on his cell phone now wants workers comp: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/illinois-killer-cop-workers-comp/story?id=11738010&page=1

And a drunk off-duty cop killed a woman at a wedding. NYPD officers apparently tried covering this up and he gets a slap on the wrist: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/brooklyn/drunk_driving_slay_cop_jailed_UHZfs0bcnxIrQIzWMCi2pJ

Obviously, the protections police officers receive emboldens them to act in a reckless manner, which no doubt leads to additional death and destruction. They kill people and get lesser sentences than non-cops who merely were caught with a DUI.

Is it too much to ask for higher standards and accountability for officers who carelessly destroy other people’s lives?
