No gloves, no jacket, hitting something dead ahead?? What kind of police department is that?

John
none of the motor officers around here wear a jacket in the summer time. It's usually just short sleeved shirts.

But Gloves they do wear.

If you watch the full video he was running on the left side of the barrels for quite a while. Obvioulsy a construction zone. Was most likely focused on who ever he was chasing, not what was in front of him.
