    Gee! You mean that squad cars aren’t the only ones that need to be controlled on slippery pavement? ;o)

    so why the F is this a story?….are squad cars supposed to be immune to being in a random accident?….there is NOTHING noteworthy about this incident nor does anybody care. ……editorial simpletons at the helm at WCCO.

    Why is this in the news? We live in Minnesota, it gets icy and people smash their cars into each other. I suppose the driver will be arrested for assaulting a police officer knowing our fair and equal justice system.

  5. Why Is This News? says:

    Because \’CCO says it\’s news.

    If it’s not important to you, move along.

    HA! to all you morons, they report on this because the squad is paid for by taxpayers, and probably costs 150grand. the at fault applies only to who is going to pay. its nice to kow where your tax money goes isnt it?
    so, STFU, if you dont care to read the story, then dont.
