I sure hope that no one was hurt by the driver who failed to stop at the crosswalk. If drivers won't stop for a uniformed officer on a traffic detail, waht hope do we have for normal crosswalks? Do drivers have any respect for human life?

Confusing Pepsi and nail polish remover? I think there may have been something else in that Pepsi she was drinking. LOL!
