        The family of murderers, rapists, and terrorists will always have a different view of the person. As such they should know better than to read public forums about the incident.

        That being said pursuits kill people. All too often it’s an innocent person that is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
        This person proved he was willing to kill. We don’t need people like him running around.

      The police is suppose to fall bk when they see the other person isn’t going to stop not pursue making things worse so clearly hell yes in the wrong

        Please quote a source for that statement. I only ask because I’ve read pursuit policies of 5 different departments and that wasn’t in any of them. I’m also versed in all current case law regarding pursuits and that hasn’t been established by any binding court.

        Just because YOU want the police just to give up chasing a fleeing felon doesn’t mean that’s what they are supposed to do. I’m not going to debate whether police should or shouldn’t pursue but the bottom line is there’s no law supporting your statement.

    Interesting. No new info, but the story is kept at the front. Anti cop agenda? Another non story kept to the fore about a Trump appointee. A blind man can see on this site, thanks!
