An appalling video has surfaced showing a US cop laughing and making jokes about an Indian who was killed by his colleague Officer Kevin Dave.
Om 23 January Kevin on his way to an overdose call struck at the speed of 119 km/h and killed Jaahnavi Kandula, 23, on a crosswalk.
Auderer, a drug recognition expert, was assigned to evaluate whether Dave was impaired, The Seattle Times reported.
In the video, Auderer can be heard saying “she is dead” before bursting out into laughter.
Referring to Kandula, Auderer said, “No, it’s a regular person.”
Towards the end of the clip, he can be heard saying, through bursts of laughter, “Yeah, just write a check. Eleven thousand dollars. She was 26 anyway,” misstating the age of the victim.
He further said, “She had limited value,” New York Post reported as quoted by ANI.
Auderer said that he did not believe a criminal investigation was being carried out. He said, “I mean, he was going 50 mph. That’s not out of control. That’s not reckless for a trained driver.”
However, a police investigation report referred to prosecutors for review last month said that Dave had been driving at 74 mph, and Kandula was thrown more than 100 feet after the impact.
