The story states that: "Spicer and Brittingham spotted the car in the area of The Circle, the elder Spicer said. The officers tried to stop it, but Reeves, who was driving, sped away with Powell and Flores as passengers, police said.

The officers, with Brittingham behind the wheel and Spicer in the passenger seat, chased the car onto East Market Street, then North King Street, entering the Kimmeytown neighborhood.

Near King and Rosa streets, the police car rammed the Sebring to stop it, Bruce Spicer said."

It's easy to see what happened here. When Reeves sped away from Brittingham and Spicer, they got 'ticked off' and when they caught up with them they chose to ram the car.

Those 2 officers had the resources of the whole state (small as it is) behind them. They could have called in for back-up, road blocks, they could have had the strips laid down that blow out tires, and probably a whole litany of options. But did they choose any of this? No! Instead they chose to assault the occupants of that vehicle with a deadly weapon -- their police car.

Brittingham, the remaining officer, should be charged with attempted murder. When someone is running FROM you, deadly force is not warranted.

You really are a sick "human being", if that is what you are.
