DENVER – A good Samaritan who helped push three people out of the path of a pickup truck before being struck and injured has gotten a strange reward for his good deed: A jaywalking ticket.
Family members said 58-year-old bus driver Jim Moffett and another man were helping two elderly women cross a busy Denver street in a snowstorm when he was hit Friday night.
Moffett suffered bleeding in the brain, broken bones, a dislocated shoulder and a possible ruptured spleen. He was in serious but stable condition Wednesday.
The Colorado State Patrol issued the citation. Trooper Ryan Sullivan said that despite Moffett’s intentions, jaywalking contributed to the accident.
Moffett had been driving his bus when the two women got off. In the interest of safety, he got out and, together with another passenger, helped the ladies cross.
Moffett’s stepson, Ken McDonald, said the driver of the pickup plowed into his stepfather, but not before Moffett pushed the two women out of the way.
When he awoke in intensive care, he learned of the ticket. “His reaction was dazed and confused. I was a little angry,” said McDonald.
The other man also was cited for jaywalking, while the pickup driver was cited with careless driving that led to injury. Sullivan said the two elderly women haven’t been cited but the investigation is ongoing.

This cop is S T U P I D! :disagree:

There was a time in my life when I would have reacted to this saying “all cops are stupid”… but now I’m getting to where I realize it’s mostly the laws that are stupid.



yeah, if we legalize it, the gov's can collect tax revenue, the industry can be controlled/regulated, the violence would stop, the billions wasted in the 'war on j-walking' would spent other places, we could stop those dumb commercials where the j-walker's brain gets cooked like an egg, and everyone could just relax and take a chill pill, which would be next on the legalization agenda.

wait, wrong thread...
