Horrible accident involving LEO DUI

http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...=9999100813056

Quote:
At 11:20 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6, 2010, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police cruiser driven by Officer David Bisard plowed into a group of four riders on three motorcycles stopped at a red light. One rider was killed, and two others critically injured.

A blood test indicated Bisard was drunk and he was initially charged with seven DUI-related felonies. But those chargers were later dropped because the blood test had been mishandled and no other evidence supported the DUI charge.

This is a pretty big deal right now in Indianapolis. DUI charges were dropped under the claim that the test wasn't administered correctly. It's pretty sad that any and all options are being put forth to save this guy's ass. People like this give honest LEOs a bad name.

We had a bunch here in Toledo last year, some so drunk they couldn't walk on duty, some with pot in their system during random test and all was swept under the rug, till the local paper got wind. And asked why no official paper work was filed? Police unions brushed it off as normal work stress everyone has.

Though regular folks don't get a freebiee DUI or pot bust with no official paper work and secret hearings.

They should turn and feed on their weak to become stronger and better.
Hold each other up to higher standards then regular folks.

Smells like a cover up to me...
First IPD tries to blame the motorcyclists for not doing what they are supposed to when clearly staying put was the best choice and is what we are taught when there is no where to go! DUH!!! Who would have expected to get @ssholed by a cop coming up behind you? Not me!

Next officers responding didn't notice him being impaired....how could you miss it when a person has a BAC of 0.19? Stevie Wonder anyone?

Now because of some bureaucracy bullshit the charges are dropped because the lab tech isn't forensically trained....how hard is it to draw blood? Not very....How accurate is the test? SPOT ON!

Sorry, just needed to vent...I grew up and Indiana and this pisses me off...

Yeah I was just reading about that this morning. That jerk got lucky in the fact that the lab tech wasn't certified to draw the blood. I'd hope they give him max sentences for the remaining charges....but who knows.

What else can they charge him on? Damage to police property? That's all I can think of.

Either way the jobs that did this one now probably screwed their department and the city outright.

It's got a good chance of going to civil court where the officer (and possibly the city/county) could lose everything. DUI charge or not, that won't matter when you file suit for wrongful death/Assault/whatnot against the city/county. Can 'o worms..

I read that he still faces three charges: reckless homicide and two charges of criminal recklessness.

I believe the FBI is getting involved on this one. There is a whole lot of corruption going on with this I'm afraid.

The funny thing about the initial report stating the motorcyclists didn't yield right-of-way... I got a ticket four years ago by IMPD FOR yielding right-of-way (by going through a red light) to a fire engine in almost this exact scenario.

Bit of a double standard.

Ya, our society is messed up. Here near Raleigh over the past 5 yrs, a pair of DA's in the court were just found guilty of dismissing 33 DWI's to some stupid lower charges - they lost their jobs.

Just this week, a private investigator formerly with the FBI investivated the SBI's policies and procedures and found that the core blood analyst had severely botched 230 cases in which three had already been executued. One guy was released after 17 yrs of wrongfully being in jail. This is just inexcuseable - and these bazztaards are suspeneded WITH PAY... I don't know which is worse - they lied under oath, sent wrongfully charged people to jail or they are being paid for it.. This mess is going to cost taxpayers in NC billions..

The Indy police chief demoted a few subordinates this week after the DUI charges were dropped, sounds like "damage control" at public relations...

I know LEOs personaly who drink and drive, EVEN in their patrol cars. AND on duty. Hard to believe, but it's true. Not sure there is anything can be done about it. Really sucks.

One was found ON DUTY parked in a local speed trap hiding spot, passed out drunk. They coudn't get him to answer on the radio, and when he did, he was hard to understand.

He did NOT get fired. Placed on leave with pay. 2 weeks. Came back and did it again. He was given the chance to go to rehab without pay and then report BACK TO DUTY upon completion of a rehab stint.

HE REFUSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only then was he fired.

The FBI won't touch it yet. The SBI would be the ones investigating it.

Well, once again, I hope we all understand that there are bad apples everywhere and in ALL areas of society. It is imperitive that LE Agencies try and keep it quiet. I will never blame them for that. It only makes sense. BUT, this one seems to have been botched from the beggining. Looks like it may go further so justice may be served in the end.

I will bash the bad apples as needed, but I will be careful to not blanket them all with my sentiments.

(and Tag could ban me )
