When someone is using a car to try to kill you you do what you can to stop them. The car was hitting the police vehicles several times and was putting everyone in danger. The police did the right thing.

Anyone who thinks the police were justified in shooting this woman is obviously brainwashed. There is clearly no justification other than cops being bloodthirsty killers. The message is this: don't step out of line in Fitchburg or you will be shot whether you are armed or not.

Another armchair quarterback. And how many times have you been arrested?

Let's expand the last line of your post, shall we?

Rob a store, lead police on a multistate and high speed chase during early morning school hours putting many innocent lives needlessly at ristk and failing to stop for a police officer and going so far as to ram police cars and using your vehicle as a weapon against those officers will, and should, most definitely lead to the offender being shot. As it should be. Everytime, all the time.

No justification? She robbed a store, tried running over cops in Rindge, NH after running from police in three different towns, just to end up back in Fitchburg where she rammed several police cruisers with her car sending three Fitchburg officers to the hospital. Justified all day long. I for one am glad they shot her.

How many times have you been arrested, Tim?? Don't worry, I'm sure it was someone else's fault.

Great Job! If the FPD was trying to tell criminals that if they step out of line in Fitchburg they'll be handled with immediate justice GREAT!

Keep up the good work! I'm a taxpayer sick and tired of seeing the criminals in Fitchburg rule the City, thank yo so much Fitchburg Police Department for keeping my family safe!

Keep up the GREAT Work!

Everyone who supports the Fitchburg Police should comment with the following:

Keep up the Great work Fitchburg Police, I support you!

Let the good people tell the criminals and all the haters on this blog to get the hell out of the City.

Timmy has a very twisted sense of logic. He likes to complain about Fitchburg and how the city spends it's tax dollars, yet he's not a taxpayer. In summary, he's an idiot.

I bet you are this Christain right person! Are you a Catholic,Christian or Muslim??? When you pray to your God do you say "I hope that the FPD fires lead at the foreheads of un armed girls this week? As long as it is not my troubled Daughter!
There are much better and safer tactics,YES!! The FPD never uses these tactics on drug dealers of poison that these girls were hooked on! They were unarmed! No officer should stand in front of a speeding vehicle in an attempt to stop it!! This is asking for trouble or attempting to justify "DEADLY FORCE"!
If this was a "good tactic" then why didn't they shoot the car before it went into New Hampshire? Get a clue!
I am for reducing crime more than yourself but I would never justify an officer to step in front of a speeding car as they knew that the driver wasn't going to stop as they already chased them to NH and back!!!! This is BULL ****!
Maybe we should shoot cops in the head who break the law! Tasca stole tens of thousands these girls stole under $500 and Tasca was armed and committing crimes behind his badge!

Ok, they are 40 year old women. They have drug addictions. This doesn't justify them robbing anyone; put them in jail for the robbery. Don't kill them as they are unarmed.
Secondly, these officers knew ahead of time that this car was not going to stop, why did they physically stand in front of the speeding car??
I never said blame the drug dealers; I am stating that the FPD should be more vigilant on catching drug dealers as they are with addicts! I am tired of watching these poison distributers drive around this city acting like thugs!
They did not do the right thing here or they would be shooting their weapons everyday! Tasca stole 40,000. These girls stole under 500. Tasca was sixty when he stole, you can't tell me that he didn't know that stealing money was illegal???
On one hand you are asking us all to believe that Tasca didn't know that he was stealing tens of thousands even as they catch him changing postings in the accounting journals to cover his tracks??? You are asking us to believe that for these moments that he was a drooling **** that didn't know right from wrong. Now a trained officer doesn't understand right from wrong???
They knew these women as it states they recognized them through the car window as the robbers. Why shoot them? So you feel that this woman should have been executed for stealing under $500???

These girls raced to and from NH, true? And no one got hurt? You mention 'could of"; If my aunt had gonuts then she would be my uncle!

A member of the FPD parks his car on 190 at 2 am in the running lane, and shuts his lights off. A 19 year old girl comes driving down a dark 190 in the right lane only to have to swerve at the last second to avoid the Officers vehicle and flips her car. She is pronounced dead. The officer refuses the breathilyzer test.

Now if this was the girl who had parked her car on 190 in the driving lane would you have her pegged as Drunk?

Now this girl is the driver for another girl who stole $177 unarmed. Tasca got caught red handed STEALING over $40,000 and covering up the theft by changing the postings. What is the difference?? Besides the obvious amounts of stolen cash! One had a badge!!

What was the difference in the FATAL accident on 190 if the driver of the cops car happened to be you or I?? It was a COP!

What does that event have to do with the events from the other day? Nothing? Good, now please do try to stay on topic. Stop making excuses for these POS who got EXACTLY what they deserved. Well, at least one did. ;)
