Keyword=Stormchaser.........Chase the storm. Don't get in front of it. He was doing exactly as he was trained. He had every right to be where he was...his life depended on it. Chances are he did have up to date dataThe storm wacker disobeyed a lawful order to leave after being warned several times. Officer made good on his promise. The officer does not have up-to-the-minute weather information that the spotter claims he does, and the spotter is not in a position to tell the officer the weather is no longer dangerous. Had the officer simply left, and a tornado wiped out this group of weather wackers, the survivors and families would sue the officer for negligence!
I hope the officer counter-sues the spotter and if this was the sole reason for losing his job, then I hope the FOP gets involved and he gets it back.
