Lets stop high-speed police chases before people are killed
We need a Federal law prohibiting scumbags who run from the police from filing lawsuits. Carrion, a drunken passenger in a car running from the police at 100 MPG, cursed at a police office after his capture and was justifiably shot.
Carrion is a disgrace to the U.S. Air Force, and he should be thankful to be alive, not suing people.
Carrion – A disgrace to the USAF
Running from the police should be considered as attempted first degree murder, as the public at-large becomes at great risk.
Running from the police should be a capital offense. Criminals who endanger the public with 100 MPH chases should be taken-down with extreme force and taken-out, even if means that they are killed. Maybe use attack helicopters?
Shoot runners off the road - quickly
A 2007 Supreme Court ruling gave police officers protection from lawsuits that result from high-speed car chases -- ruling against a Georgia teenager who was paralyzed after his car was run off the road. Justice Scalia said law enforcement officers do NOT have to call off pursuit of a fleeing motorist when they reasonably expect that other people could be hurt.
I propose that the U.S. military intercede to protect the public from high-speed police chases and use out Apache helicopters to obliterate any criminal who endangers the public by running from police.
Lets add some spice to police chase TV coverage
Lets blow-up police evaders quickly, before they kill someone.
In California, police chases are widely covered in the media, and allowing the criminals to be killed quickly will add to the drama. Imagine the ratings when a scumbag’s car explodes on the freeway, possible saving the lives of many innocent victims.
As for this disgraceful drunken airman, I hope he gets a dishonorable discharge.
The policeman should be suing him, not the other way around.
