Cop's rookie mistake caught on tape

Caught-on-Video: Cop Makes Rookie Mistake

A man was pulled over for going around a safety bar warning of an approaching train, but as "Fox & Friends" reports, he was let off with a warning because of the police officer's rookie mistake.

Apparently the officer's car slipped out of gear and rolled right into the truck.

The video was posted to LiveLeak on February 16th and already has more than 200,000 views. You can see officers checking whether there's any damage to the truck, too.

The damage seemed to be minimal, and the officer let the man off with a warning. While we're sure the cop's ego is a little bruised, we hope he takes this tip from Police Magazine:

'Mistakes will be made. Mistakes should be made. ... You need to accept mistakes, learn from them, and move on.'

No word on who the officer is or where the incident took place.

If cops when sweep their mistakes under the table, it just shows how much power they have over us. We are nothing to them. This is a good example of a " Police State".

Pretty good. Although I hope the guy bills the police department for the damage.

Driving around a train baracade sounds like a very stupid thing until you live where there are a lot of train crossings that are very poorly timed. Sometimes they come down when the train is 1/2 a mile away and going at a wopping 5 mph. When a train is 100 or 150 cars long...well, there really isn't time in my life to wait on a train when it's 1/2 a mile away when the bell starts ringing and the thing comes down.

Believe it or not, all police officers are human beings. We all make mistakes.

To be fair, the man should have been ticketed for going around the bar. And the cop should have been ticketed for failure to securely park his motor vehicle.

Maybe if the man did not violate the law to begin with and drive around the safety bar warning, none of this would have happened.

Oops! We all make mistakes. It isn't a question of "if" it is a question of "when." Nothing bruised but his ego.
