Here is a story about a child protector who forgot that his immunity only applies while on the job.



Police clock man on motorcycle at 142 mph

A child-welfare worker was clocked at 142 miles an hour on his motorcycle while leading police on a two-state chase, authorities said Thursday.

Sean Virgo's wild ride allegedly started in Orangeburg, where he was pursued by New York state police.

When he arrived in neighboring New Jersey, Palisades Interstate Parkway police picked up the chase, They arrested Virgo as he tried to make a U-turn on a grassy median.

Virgo, 34, of Ossining, an emergency children's services investigator for the New York City Administration for Children's Services, was charged this week with eluding police and first-degree reckless endangerment.

He was being held on $20,000 bail in the Bergen County jail in New Jersey.

Addendum: Canada Court Watch suggests the worker needed the speed to save a child in need of protection.
