Yeah, sorry you're dead. The only reason they were hard on him is because he was a criminal running from the police. If some yuppie killed the same 3 riders in his hurry to get to work he would have gotten a slap on the wrist.

Kill 3 people and be out in 16 years. What a deal!



Selling weed or burning a cross in someone's lawn is a worse crime than murder now. Some preacher I read about could receive 47 years for having disrupted a gay rally. The right wing wackos give us the stupid fascistic drug war and the leftwing wackos give us stupid fascistic thought crimes penalties.



What a sick and twisted society.

Well, stupid or not, the guys father was right. There was no point in chasing him down. The guy was obviously twitchy as hell. Where was he going to go? Sooner or later the Police would have picked him up anyways. It sounds like the idiot had the stolen SUV in his parents driveway. That'll through off the Police for sure. They'd never suspect that he might show up at his parents house. He was only wanted for a fairly minor offense. Gung ho police policies contributed to this tragedy.

Dude - might want to check your facts. "Some preacher I read about could receive 47 years for having disrupted a gay rally." Sounds likely.

Right wing wackjobs give us the drug war, a real war real Americans are dying for, expanded mercury pollution, more taxpayer subsidies for logging and mining our public lands, etc, etc.

Left wing wackjobs maybe waste some tax dollars by legitimately trying to help the least among us.

There is a difference.

Unless that preacher disrupted a gay rally with an AK-47, I'm guessing you got lied to. Don't take it personally - it's the ONLY thing the right wing is good at. Certainly they're no good at saving the taxpayer money or running a war, at any rate.

OK, slow down with your "gung ho police policies" and re-read the articles and think for a second. The police were there to serve a warrant for child sexual abuse. When they get there, a guy from the house flees in a stolen SUV. Hindsight shows it was the wrong guy, but at the time, that's definitely a red flag... Especially when the guy blows through 2 police roadblocks and continues the chase into the next state.



You may not like the fact that police pursue criminals, but I'd just as soon they keep it up-especially when as serious as a child sexual abuse case.



Get your head out and see the light. The person responsible for this was the scumbag who was running from the police. In a stolen SUV. Who was already facing a warrant on a different charge. It's just a shame that we don't see running from the police and using your two-ton SUV as a weapon to be the crime it should be.

Bovine Ejectus.

2 stories from a small town in Tennessee:

911 was dialed from a quickstop, because a female customer was being beligerent to the clerk. Video shows no physical contact... but yelling and cursing.

suspect is getting into her car was cops arrive. Police officer approaches the car from the front with weapon drawn. Then shoots the driver, "because she made eye contact with me, and attempted to run me over". The punch line is, the medical examiner found the car still in reverse.

3 weeks later, same small town...

Old man driving down the road.... his accelerater gets stuck. Like something out of a movie. The old fella driving was in his 70's and he was paniced. The cops gave chase, and eventually set up a road block.

As the car charged the road block... An officer shot and killed the man. The officer then claimed he shot him because "He refused to make eye contact with me."

If anyone needs to pull his head from the sand its you. Cops are killing citizens with an ever increasing frequency. Those most disturbed by this, tend to be older cops who see the young punks acting like this, and getting away with it.

By the way... In both cases, both officers recieved multiple weeks off, with pay, and were cleared of any wrong doing.

When a citizen accidently kills a citizen, its man-slaughter. He goes to jail for 5-15.

When a cop accidently kills a citizen, he goes on a tax-payer paid vacation.

More and more, law-abiding citizens are getting more and more angry at cops. A lot of us are starting to agree with NWA on police matters.

You know, in europe (most parts anyway), the cops run around armed with submachine guns. They are authorized to shoot when someone runs, not just to defend their or someone else's life. And let me tell you - contrary to the c$*p that you see on "wild police chases", there are FEW knuckleheads out there that dare to run from the polizei (or policia). It may sound a bit drakonian, but there is a good amount of truth to the idea that "running" = "guilty". Silly me....trying that common sense stuff again...

You're right. The leftwingers are great at running wars. WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam. Millions of corpses courtesy of the geniuses.



And claiming "credit" for govt social programs is to deliciously ironic to be believed. Nations bankrupted. Lives smashed. Families ruined. Innner city schools become war zones. Something to be proud of! But all such evil is to be forgiven because you've got "good intentions", right?



LOL! Keep it up. This is better than the comedy channel.



Much to be proud of. Malthus would be impressed I bet.

Don't make googoo eyes in Tennessee then....

Should I ever travel through TN again in the future, I'll be sure to wear those springy eye-glass thingies from now on. But wait, maybe then they'll claim "he was making googoo eyes at me, so I had to shoot him".

So that's why Bush hates Social Security.



Thanks for explaining.

Re: Bovine Ejectus.

I think one could probably find more realistic things to worry about than getting shot at by police.

Can anyone make a statistically relevent argument as to why I should be concerned?

Hell, even most criminals don't actually get shot at by police.

I think people worry a bit too much about things that ain't worth worrying about.

Look at it from the cops point of view. Most of your day is fairly boring. You're on a routine arrest warrant. Suddenly, a guy blows right past you?



Scenario 1. Unbelievable. This is my chance to be the hero after three years in this stupid job. Besides, people who saw me and the speeder will think I'm not doing my job if I don't go after him.



Sound of siren, screeching tires and roar of engine fade in the distence.



...or...



Scenario 2. What's up with that guy? If I chase him he'll go faster once he sees me and someone might get killed. We got a make on him and will eventually arrest him when he's calmed down. No need to put innocent people at risk. Yeah right! LOL!!

dude, mebbe you ought to move to Argentina if you think Bushism is such a hot plan. It ought to be the poster child for Americas right wing nutjobs cuz economists what the "chicago boys" did in South America is the stuff of legend



They too had a government dominated by University of Chicago School of Economics educated neo-cons and they implemented ALL the stuff the Bushies are working on....



lied their country into an unnecessary war--- then lost



privatized government pension programs, utilities and services



slashed taxes for corporations and the wealthy while running record deficits



cut spending on domestic programs and infrastructure while pouring money into bloated military spending and corporate handouts



end result they plunged into a decade long recession with 40+% unemployment and finally defaulted on all thier international debts.



The rich got lots richer and the middle class has been gutted, their roads and other public assets are crumbling from years of neglect and it's gonna take 'em decades to crawl out of the hole.



If you wanna see where neo-con America is going, just look where Argentina has been

Here is the difference between Mr. Halbert and Mr. Janlow.



Mr. Halbert takes drugs and steals things from people.



Mr. Janklow was a respected public servant.
