What kind-of punishment do you get from running from the police anyways?

My cousin did that years ago, hit a telephone pole and all he recevied was a supended license and had to pay for a new pole.

Sorry for everyones rude comments about my cousin John Reilly. Which none of you knew from Adam. He was a great kid who was changing his act up and recently out of rehab. They saved my cousin from the car before the cop.

RIP John Edward Reilly
their friends

Hopefully, Brandt will be okay. It's a shame that he's in the hospital for simply doing his job.
As for Reilly and the other guy, it was their decision to flee and lead cops on this chase, so I don't feel bad that they're both gone.
well your a scumbag and it doesnt matter if they were fleeing!! they didnt deserve to die. it was all the cops fault for chsing them anyway he wasnt even supposed to they were goin over 110mph and passing an accident the op was only supposed to write the plate number down and send a ticket or w/e so larn to watch wat you say about peoples friends!!

As one who engaged in high speed chases, I can tell you there is nothing more exciting in policing. It was and still is a game..the hunter and the hunted. Putting on my police and academic hats, I can also tell you that the vast majority of chases are for traffic violations and nothing more. See the PSP report.

They should be stopped except in cases of know dangerous felons. But this will never happen.

One innocent person is killed every day in police high speed chases. Some may say, "collateral damage" is to be expected.
What it it was your door that the police were knocking on at 2 am to tell you that a relative have been "collateral damage" in a high speed police chase? Would you still believe they should be continued? When placed in that context most of my students so NO.

A friend was working in his front yard very early that sunday morning. He lives on rt 29.
He heard a car approaching, and said the speed of the vehicle caught his attention before he saw it. It sounded like it was traveling very, very fast.

It was. The state police car went by his house, at what he estimated to be over a hundred miles an hour.
a few minutes later, he said he heard the sirens from the fire trucks and other emergency vehicles at the crash site.
He did not hear the crash, as the site is about 2 miles from his house.
Moral of the story?
Don't try to outrun the police.
Moral #2:
If you are a police officer reasponding to an incident, drive in control.
Thats what I got out of the story.
John Reilly wasn't driving the car. It was the other gentleman who lost his life.

It wasn't John Reilly driving the car. No one deserves to die
