Nassau DA's office is totally political and toally in to persecution. Justice is not a word DA Rice or her staff are familiar with nor care much about

When the DA's office suggest they represent "the people" it makes me want to cringe

Yes this absolutely REEKS of politics and cover up. Did the driver of the Cadillac escalade give a blood sample?? Why not?? They killed a police officer after all. Oh wait, I forgot, there was someone in the vicinity with a BAC of .09 An easy target for political gain. An easy scapegoat to get the connected Cadillac driver off the hook. Maybe a fundraiser for mr Ryan's defense is in order. We can't allow witch hunters to prevail. Not in the 21st century. And a special investigation should be conducted to determine why the Cadillac Escalade is not being held accountable for their actions.

Don't you conspiracy theorists think that a cops kid (Mr.Ryan) would be the one avioiding prosecution if all these scary theories you say are true???????? Did you miss that in the article?? I do agree--the Escalade should be looked into--but how do you know it wasn't???? Leave the law to the professionals. The lawyers make it entertaining enough. A police officer was killed performing his duties. I can promise you any and every avenue was checked and double checked, especially because of an officers death.

You are supposed to move over when you see the lights as well.
