Widowed Family Sues Clinton For Motorcycle Cop Death

Police motorcade
I know, I know... the way in the USA is different from the rest of the world. People sue at the drop of a hat. As someone once told me, it replaces insurance. You can sue for too hot coffee or for getting fat from eating too many hamburgers.

A while back, we reported on a motorcycle cop who crashed and was killed while he was riding motorcycle escort for Hillary Clinton during her pre-presidential campaign (see below related articles). The police officer was apparently not able to take the curve at a normal speed, nor was he able to ride in a motorcade.

Now the family of the LEOLaw Enforcement Officer - any kind of Police Officer: municipal, state, federal or national. is suing everyone and sundry. First (and probably foremost) they are suing the fact that the police department did not properly train the cop (that can't really be argued considering he couldn't maintain position and couldn't take the curve). Secondly, they are suing the helmet manufacturer, Super Seer Open link in a new window, stating that the helmet was defective, and thirdly, they are suing Hillary Clinton for not giving timely notice that she needed a motorcade assistance.

I'm really sorry for the family, since it's never easy when you loose one of your own, specially not when it's a motorcycle rider. But... this sounds a bit like lashing out at anything that moves. Yes, obviously the police department should take the blame. If their officers can't ride properly, either stop using motorcycles,or train them. And it's not the helmet manufacturer who is at fault, but again the police department for getting helmets that provide little protection.

Or is this just a political thing?
