  • Chief’s Corner: A Police Chief Reflects on a Tragedy

    Posted by Posted on Thursday, 21 May 2015 09:32 AM

    BY CHIEF FRANK KOSS, HINESBURG COMMUNITY POLICE 

    What follows is what I wrote three days after the tragedy that occurred on April 26. We all have different ways of dealing with an event and mine is writing what I am feeling and not necessarily what the Chief of Police would publicly say.

    I have been investigating accidents since August 5, 1982. My first fatal crash came two months later when a father driving a Porsche killed himself, his son and two of the son’s friends driving at a high rate of speed, most likely showing off. I have always been politically correct and sensitive, just presenting the facts without any editorial thoughts. If the horrific event that happened on Sunday has any meaning other than some candles and flowers by the side of the road, that attitude has to stop now. If you think that the chief of police should always be limited to political correctness and sensitivity, you should stop reading now.
