But The Cop Didn't Show

Few sounds are better to a defendant's ear than the dulcet tones of a judge saying "case dismissed" because the arresting officer failed to appear for trial.

Except when the defendant is a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who's conduct killed a woman, injured another and sent as 12-year-old hurtling through a windshield.
