I can't believe the amount of money they must be spending to catch this guy. Helicopters and dozens if not scores of State Troopers and Town Police! I've been told that they are using a slow moving aircraft borrowed from Homeland Security to take heat sensing photos at night. Granted this guy dragged a Trooper down the road after the Trooper reached in to take his keys! This can not be an acceptable containment technique. It should have been taught in Trooper 101 "never reach in a suspects running vehicle especially after dousing him with pepper spray". Now they offer a whole $1000.00 dollars reward! That is more than likely less than 1% of what they've spent chasing him. You can be sure of one thing. There would not be this big of a manhunt if he only assauted a civilian.

On the news last night they said he is probably armed and definatly dangerous. So, the Keystones dangle a whopping $1000 for fools to try and do their job for them.

Yeah Right, what do you know about policing? Perhaps the Trooper was worried about the safety of the child? Or let me guess, you would just let the guy go right? Hell he is not here legally anyway so lets not enforce that either. On a side note I was also told that NYSP is now using NASA space crafts to track this guy! Wow can you imagine what a waste of time and money the police are using trying do do their job(please see the sarcasm)! Any way good job Troop, hope for a speedy recovery.

You really should read the article before you comment. It said he dropped the child off "before" the Tropper stopped him. My point is that the resources could be better spent. To spend this much effort on catching a guy who killed no one is ridicules. You must be an ex-cop. Your investigative skills ie. not reading the article before
commenting show that you would do well up here. By the way the plane has been seen flying at low altitudes in the vicinity of the search. I'm surprized that you could not see it from where you are. Oh yeah you're in NJ.

You are a investigative genius! The illegal crops you refer too are exactly what the helicopters should be looking for. Here's another piece of the puzzle Inspector. The farm that this illegal, whom the great State Of New York "asked to leave" but apparently forgot to ask that he not return, was busted recently for having a crop of the illegal crop you so astutely mentioned. Perhaps you should also join in on the search. You seem to have amazing instincts.

Hey dopey, re-read the article "accompanied by the couple’s 7-year-old daughter, police said." sounds to me like the kid was in the car! The guy is actively trying to flee with his child in the car, for her safety the Trooper has to stop this illegal. Furthermore, there was no traffic stop, the illegal tried to flee from the scene, not a traffic stop like you say. It is people like you that ruin this nation, let me guess you voted for Obama too, right? You can second guess the trooper from the comfort of your house because of the safety that law enforcement officers provide and all you can do is beat up the trooper while he is in the hospital, some kind of stand up person you are!!

Will you please get a clue! You blindly align yourself with authority figures and I'm sure you still believe in Santa. You have not had the opportunity to read any preceding articles or perhaps didn't understand them. I will agree that Obama may be ruining this nation but it's sheep like you who follow blindly with what is in print and on TV who really need to open up their eyes. Now go catch a bad guy.

The trooper you speak of is a man from our community. Not only is he our friend and neighbor but he also works hard, in order to keep our community safe.

Now I'm sure if you were hit by a vehicle (that had a child in it, Nice reading comprehension) you would be hell bent on finding the man who did it. Would you tell them to stop the search if you were assaulted? Would you not want them to use the tools and resources available to them, ON LOAN, to search for the person who, is illegally in this country and just assaulted you?

Trooper Smith, our friend and neighbor, would try to help you...would it be a waste?

One of the basics taught in the academy is to secure the suspect. That means this individual who had already shown a propensity for running should have been in handcuffs and on the ground. Reaching across the suspect to remove the keys put the officer in danger. Fortunately, he survived what transpired. Others have not been so lucky. There are rules of apprehension for a reason.

How would this officer know the subject was a runner? If the truck was farm registered, How would he know anything about the driver? What department do you work for?

The trooper should have shot the guy. The article does state that he had dropped off the child before encountering the trooper. We should be using all available resources to bring this criminal to justice. As far as the cops using their helicopters to find weed, get a clue, enforcing marijuana laws is a huge waste of taxpayer $. We're talking about a plant that was criminalized for very dubious reasons. It should have been reversed many decades ago. It will be legalized in our lifetime if not in the next couple of years.

Number one the child was not in the vehicle. Number two although I am sorry your friend got hurt he certainly did not follow protocol by reaching in the vehicle while it was still running and most likely in gear and after dousing someone with pepper spray. I'm not saying this illegal did anything right I'm saying the Trooper did everything wrong. Lastly I would ask you if you really think that if a car dragged a civilian that 90 Troopers,Dec personal,and Immigration personal would be looking for the guy? I don't think so. The amount of resources that were employed to catch this guy is astouding and in my opinion crazy. More likely than not he will be deported anyway. The idea that injuring a policeman is a more grievous crime than injuring a civilian has always bothered me. After all isn't danger part of the job? The idea of police aligning themselves has seemed to cause more problems than not. If the so called "good" cops don't report the bad ones then there are no good ones.

Police say that Jimenezs seven-year-old daughter was in the passenger seat of the pickup truck at the time of the incident.

Somebodies lying!
