Apologies if this has already posted: Police boat crashes into docked boat

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/vi...crash.cnn.html


Yikes! Who trained these clowns anyway?? He's in an area with multiple anchored boats, close to shore, and he pulls a bone headed move like that? At speed? And get this, without the immediate intervention, that boat would have sunk within minutes. Haha he even instructs the boat's operator to calm down, after he's destroyed that boat!! Good thing the taxpayers carry insurance!

i have never seen, known, or heard of a cop that knew how to drive a boat.

almost got rammed by TVA at norris, and i know a person that does have a hole in their boat from KDNR.

What wasn't classic was the cop, who was at fault, admonished the onlookers as if it was their fault.

"just relax" lol if you did that to another boat the police would be flipping out on you! I would give the police boat driver a reckless driving ticket!

Water cops around me are school teachers off for the summer. They slap a badge on um, and throw um on the water. They're horrible. Not this bad tho! What an IDIOT!!!

I used to be a school teacher and ended up teaching with the one who was always a power hungry Jerk on the lake. I told him exactly what I thought of the way he operates, and since he had no badge on, invited him outside to talk it over. He declined. Principal wasn't real happy with me!

That was beyond stupid. Guy should lose his job based on the incident alone... then his behaviour afterwards deserves a more physical punishment.

I would have been arrested if he spoke to me like that after sinking my boat.

I would be ticked. I know no one was injured and that's always the most important thing but I'd be furious. I'm just glad someone got it on camera and its going viral. Absolutely no excuse for that.

I think this guy should audition for super troopers, for those who have seen the movie.
