James Carncross is only quilty of speeding. The trooper was doing 91 in a
30 mile turn on wet pavement.
All police departments have a rule, no high speed chases. Call it in and the next law enforcement officer will continue the pursuit. The trooper dis-obeyed this rule.
Putting James away for a lot of years is
wrong and two wrongs do not make a right.
Fitz is grand standing as usual. He runs

I agree about the issue of high speed chases. I have 2 nephews who are Police officers, but they are human. These fellas put their lives on teh line for us every day, but they do not have any magical driving powers, no matter what their training officials tell them. I know some 15 year olds that can drive the wheels off a car, as well as some that are over 60. But 95% of us are only capable of normal reactions.
Give this boy a huge fine, pull his license, put him on probation if necessary, but no jail time.

I definatley would have to agree with the afforementioned opinions. Carncross was guilty of speeding, not of killing a policeman that was chasing a motorcycle that was not his call. What if the policeman hit another person?? Then would he be convicted as well? James should not recieve any jail time, just fines for his speeding.

The troopers manual states that you have to terminate the pursuit if the risk outways the apprehension. It's definitely not worth your life to give someone a speeding ticket. James Carncross got screwed by the legal system!!!!
