The state’s police training facility, located here in Ada, CLEET, called recently and told me that all their students were being let out of class today to drive north to Seminole in a convoy of nearly 100 vehicles, to attend the funeral of two Seminole County deputies who were killed in the line of duty Sunday. I thought it would make a decent shot, so I drove out to the highway north of town about a mile north of CLEET and waited for a few minutes.
I didn’t have a radar gun, but by the time the convoy passed me I would guess they were going about 90 to 95 miles an hour. I know they were going to a funeral for their fallen comrades, but come on! I find the fact that they were speeding very offensive. Do you think they would let me speed to a funeral? Do cops even care about the law?
