Thats what I thought. I knew that police couldnt go through "legally"
That's not really true. The police and other emergency vehicles operating with lights and sirens do not have to follow traffic laws. We can drive the wrong way on one-way streets, or in the wrong lane, and exceed the speed limit. We do however have to drive with "due regard" for the safety of others. The ambulance service I work for requires us to stop before proceeding at all red lights and stop signs. You can bet if I have a wreck because I didn't stop, I will lose my job, and may be held financially responsible as well. In the scenario you describe, it sounds like the officer may have just received a call, or have been transporting someone to the hospital, but he should have used more caution when approaching that intersection.
If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat!
