Default Cop radared at 142.3mph (on motorcycle)

I was reading the local news from my country (Switzerland) and came across that:

http://www.tsr.ch/tsr/index.html?sit...01&sid=8124328

Off duty cop caught at 142.3 mph (229 km/h) on a 50mph zone.
Juuust under 3 times the speed limit...he could have done better than that

Guess he need to find an other job now.

Wait, so if he gets plastered on the job you have to send him to rehab and keep his job for when he gets done. If he forgets some paper work for his car registration he has to find another job?

Umm what?
Fired for expired tabs (without more details) is just over the top. It's a traffic infraction with a monetary fine everywhere that I know, and isn't even a moving violation. Unless there was something malicious about it, I don't get it.

Damn, do you guys not have a Guild? I'd imagine one hell of a fight from them, unless like I said there is more to the story.

That's why I say, he must have needed to leave anyhow. They were just waiting on something to seal the deal.

Ugh, Schwitzerdütsch. There was a chick in the German grade school I went to who was from Switzerland, and she's curse me out in Schwitzerdütsch whenever I pissed her off enough.

**** no (I've lived here since I was four, thank god). I did briefly consider alternating between my usual voice and a horribly stereotypical accent with every other person I met at the Wicked Big Meet this year...just so that they'd get together afterwards, compare notes, and be really confused.

there's not one single cop in my city that drive on the speed limit (they are at least 5-10mph over)...guess they should all get fired then ??

I don't agree. He should have been issued a citation for the tabs and been done as any other citizen would have been, maybe spent some time in his supervisors office at most, barring any extra or further circumstances.
