    The first sentence of the news story too.

    State Trooper notices two young males (13 & 14) driving a car at 1am in the morning (hmmmm). Apparently the car ran a red light and also had no license plate light. Driver doesn't stop and leads the Trooper on a chase which ultimately led to the driver who ran being killed after he struck a telephone pole at a 100mph. Oh and the car he used was his grandmother's vehicle, which he stole. But he was trying to turn his life around, even started going to church.

  2. Hmmmm is right. I question if the high speed pursuits are worth the usual results.

    Better.

    I mean, you're still a fool, but this is a little better.
     
  4. I question if fleeing at high speeds is worth the usual results.

    If only results such as this are the 'usual.' :crying:

    The USUAL result of a "high speed" pursuit is that the suspect goes to jail. Suspects killing people (themselves included) are very rare compared to the number of pursuits that occur in this nation on a daily basis.

    I question why society tolerates people doing this by placing the responsibility of some ****head's actions on us, and why none of the cars I have ever pursued had a driver with a valid license.:dunno:
     
  8. And I question the judgement and values of those in this nation who tolerate, condone and even encourage others to flee in cars at high rates of speed. Stop believing and imitating the Cannon Ball Run.

    Just saying. :dunno:

    and to think, all the suspect had to do was stop like the cops were trying to get him to do. of course had he not broken several laws before he broke the law yet again by fleeing....none of this would have happened.

    and yes, it is typical for democrats to blame somebody else for the action of a criminal and not hold the criminal responsible for what they were in sole charge of.

    Pursuits are all unique due to time and place. We could justify a 100mph pursuit on the freeway in the middle of the night. Our downtown area would be a real bad place to continue pursuing except between 3 and 4 in the morning on Monday.

    If the bad guy crashes it is his fault. If we crash because we are trying to keep up in this day and age good luck with trying to blame it on the bad guy.

    Streetking,

    Do you like to drive fast?
     
  13. I question why people flee at high speeds, causing us to have to pursue them.

    Sounds like a good ending to me.

    All cops went home, the general public wasn't hurt, and a little piece of trash was removed from the gene pool, prior to it reproducing or expanding its criminal career...

    Stupidity is too often rewarded.

    Well, there was no need to run anyway. They only die tired when that happens.

    Street King is perhaps in need of being excoriated, what?

    Now, now, there is always the chance, that Streetking meant something along the lines of he did not understand why the DB flees, when the usual result is they are caught, and go to jail.:tbo:
     
  19. Well of course I do. Like you said it's open to all. Get ahold of yourself. You seem weak minded.
