RIP police fella, nobody deserves to die that way. When they catch the offender they should treat him/her in the same inhuman terms.

prayers are with the family

My thoughts are with the family left behind. Shocking way to end a life, and I hope the Courts make an example of the driver....put inside and throw the key away.
I have a lot of time for the Biker Police, and they don't deserve to lose a vital member of the team.
God Bless and RIP Grand Visier.

This is such a upsetting and distrubbing story that makes you think that we really need to bring back some sort of proper punishment - like hanging and flogging. If not at least make prisoners work hard for no money, if they refuse - don't let them out. Or put them on a deserted Island away from decent people. Don't allow them luxuries like: internet, gym, tv and decent food - which most normal decent working people would shruggle to have.
Prayers for the Officer and his family & friends.

RIP fella,keep on riding
a waste of live like this is never going to be solved by the courts
anybody convicted of these sort of crimes should get minimum 10yrs and every minuite spent in solitary to be able to reflect on the chaos theyve caused,and a complete ban on driving for the rest of their lives they dont deserve to be on the road if they are careless enough to kill someone

Cases like this can take a long long time.
I have dealt with 3 fatals, including 2 motorbikes and 1 car ( I have attended about 12 fatals) and know that they can take about 10 months (or more) before they are finalised. So wouldnt be surprised if the investigation has not been completed yet.
It is quite close to my heart this, as i am a traffic cop, and often go to work on the Mille.
