Motorcycle Cop Escorting Clinton Was Not Able To Take Curve

When I posted the short article {link} on the motorcycle Police officer that had died while escorting Presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton in Texas, I asked why this has happened. It wasn't the first time, since last year similar fatal accidents have happened when escorting VIPs {link}.

Without wanting to start a blame game, or one-man-up-ship, it would seem that the reason the Police officer died was because he was not able to ride in a single lane, and negotiate a curve! The motorcade was not traveling at high speed, so speed was not a factor.

IMHO, it's not Sr. Cpl. Victor Lozada Tirado's fault. All this would point at is a lack of training for the motorcycle Police officers! I have read strange stories in the past about the US based motorcycle cops, like 2-3 week training for cops in New York (including the basis of riding a motorcycle), to "bring your own equipment" in other states.

Personally I find it strange. If a Police force hires someone to do a job, you need to ensure that the person is properly trained. That's like an airline hiring a pilot, but not training him/her to fly an airplane properly. So why hire a pilot? Would you want to fly with that airline?

If a city/county wants motorcycle cops, train them properly! If not, forget it. How many need to die?
