Police are supposed to protect us, not kill us

Recently, two cyclists have been killed... but the oddest thing is by who... a Santa Clara County Deputy on duty who claims that he must have fallen asleep.

This is absolutely outrageous. I know these things happen, but of all people a member of the police force? That is the LAST person anyone would think would hit a cyclist. And we're supposed to be a democracy where NO ONE is above the law. I understand it was an "accident" that he might have fallen asleep on the wheel, but who's protecting us if the police can't?

My heart and prayers goes out to the family and friends of the two killed and the one still in the hospital with a broken arm and leg.

As always, be careful out there, now you don't know if you can trust the cop cars anymore...
