Letter to the editor: Different rules for police?Writer thinks Farmington officer should have turned off his squad's ignition at the gas station.
To the editor,
At about 10 p.m. on March 7 I observed squad 92 pull into Kwik Trip here in Farmington and proceed to dispense fuel into his running squad in defiance of the law forbidding the dispensing of fuel into a running motor vehicle. While squad 92 is a K9 unit I am sure Bosco would have been fine in the squad without the heater for the couple of minutes that it took his officer to fill the squad. Instead this officer risked a fire hazard and therefore the safety of other citizens and his canine, Bosco, to keep the heater on.
