Tacoma police are investigating after an officer ran over a man lying on the street early Saturday morning.

The incident happened at about 1:20 a.m. in the 600 block of North Fife Street in Tacoma Washington.

Tacoma Police Department spokeswoman Loretta Cool told KIRO 7 a patrol vehicle traveling 10 mph ran over a person lying on the roadway.

“He continued up the road real slowly. When his headlights hit the concrete up there, I noticed there was somebody up there laying in the road,” a witness said. “I thought he was going to get out and give him a citation for being drunk in public or something like that. But he continued on and ran him over, just like watching a movie.”

This is either sadistic murder or gross negligence. Either way, this officer deserves to lose his badge.
