Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will NOT face charges because he was answering a work-related email

Milton Olin Jr, 65, was fatally struck by a Los Angeles county sheriff's patrol car December 8, 2013, as he rode in the bike lane in Calabasas
Deputy Anthony Wood was returning from a fire call when he took his eyes off the road to type a work-related message on an electronic device
Olin was director of operations for Napster between 2000 and 2002 and was a prominent entertainment lawyer
The victim's wife and sons have filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming Wood was negligent

I'm not normally a cop basher, but if I did that exact same thing, I'd be typing this from jail.

Hope the family gets a decent settlement.

I think the new rule is "no comment" and sorry for the bike rider.

Can't speak for that agency but at mine the criminal side has to be disposed of, normally, before the administrative side can begin. What that would mean is that just because he was found criminally innocent he will now be judged by department standards and guidelines. I would assume that they have something about maintaining control of the patrol vehicle at all times and other similar policies which will cover this incident. My guess is the deputy will be unemployed soon and the department's risk manager or insurance company will be cutting a check to keep the civil suit from happening. Just a guess from my side of the blue line though.

That's the problem when you run someone over that has money. You aren't going to settle out of court.

I'll take a shot at it....

The deputy should be charged. What a department or state's policy is, or what exemptions they may have, doesn't substitute for morality.

Fact: Guy driving a car allowed something to distract him and that resulted in the death of someone who was just minding his own business.

I just can't imagine that the content of a email was worth the risk of hurting someone, much less was more important than a life.

Saying "this is a travesty of justice and this guy deserves to be in jail" is not "general bashing".

Thanks for the insight.

I often chafe against cell phone bans while driving because I used to have to handle a lot of commstuff while flying really close to the water, trees, ship superstuctures, etc, but even with that background, I won't try to text/e-mail while driving. You give up too much SA.

Fine with me if they don't settle the Deputy should have maintained control of his vehicle. There is nothing on an MDT worth losing control of the vehicle and killing someone else or yourself over.

All of them I think

Doesn't suprise me one bit... I've had two friends rear-ended by officers typing on their computers.

Somewhat off topic; Every LEO, with the exception of one, that I know in my town has been in an alcohol related MV accident (no injuries) and none was ever arrested, on was suspended for 30days. Some animals are more equal than others.

I used to be very pro-LE and still am in general, but at least in regards to my town, I think they are some sketchy motherfuckers.

Not only did he kill Olin, he lied about it. He initially claimed that Olin swerved in front of him. Several days later when confronted with evidence that Olin was in the bike lane at all times, he changed his story. Way to serve and protect.
