It's easier to go to jail and bond out than to try on run from he cops and die in the process. He got what he deserved and the planet is better without him.
And don't give me he made a mistake and was a good man or father. Good men and fathers work, YES WORK, for a living and are there for their kids.

Maybe the police did not need to chase them. The stolen vehicle was totaled as was the truck it hit. Both were innocent victims and maybe not insured either. The police were lucky not to kill anybody. Speeds were reportedly 90MPH on the service drive. People and cars were jumping out of the way. Fortunately, no good guys were killed, but that was pure luck.
Police need a ray gun that can be pointed at a fleeing vehicle and shut it down.

Yeh, it was the police who put the publics life in danger. Not the guy who was RUNNING FROM THE POLICE IN A STOLEN CAR!!!!
"Lucky the police didn't kills anybody" Pete, your a moron.

Turns out the police were responsible for injuring two people.
In only ask the questions, "Was the chase the best idea?"
I look for better ways, not more neanderthal ways.

Please enlighten us with those better ways. The shut em down ray gun?

A system for remote shutdown by police to avoid a chase already exists. I called it a ray gun for emphasis.
Some cities have available helicopters that render the ground chase a slow speed one.
A stolen vehicle is not worth the loss of life. A property theft crime was turned into a violent felony with two innocent injuries and one death.
I remind you this is 2013, not 1955. Drones are available to police now for surveillance.
I simply say it is worth looking at alternatives to a shotgun in the city.

"There is no mandatory government reporting of pursuit and pursuit-related fatalities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration uses a voluntary tracking system. Fatalities are reported at the discretion of law enforcement officials."

I like the way they often call off the chase when they see they caused an accident up ahead. Then when they file the report the time is adjusted to match their new made-up story.
Two years ago the Plymouth and Plymouth Township crew were in a chase of somebody that did not pay at the gas station or something. The communication between units was off and one officer T-boned the other causing a broken neck, back and more. Neither officer had a seat belt attached!
Police do what they want and write it the way they want.
Don't talk to the police.
"Officer, am I being detained or am I free to go?"
"Officer, I do not consent to searches."
"Officer, I can't speak without representation."
Repeat as necessary.

...and only works on new vehicles, though not all.
A slow speed chase by a helicopter? LMFAO! You need to get out more. Also, helicopters cost tax dollars to own and operate.
Also at tax dollar expenses and they recently emerged for public use. DO you think all of a sudden every dept will purchase one? I suppose so with TAX DOLLARS.
Shotgun is my option. You run, they should simply shoot at them and you die. It's that simple. But of course, I'm a neanderthal. Though, much better than a weak liberal.

Time moves forward unless you have a time machine. There will continue to be advancements. Yes, GPS type devices exist in most new vehicles and have for many years now. Thieve often prefer to take newer vehicles. Who would have thunk it? Not you I guess.
Helicopters are used around the country. Yes it costs money. Drones are very new and cost less than helicopters, but still cost money.
If you just prefer to live in the past, OK for you. I vote for progress and exploration of ideas to provide safety for citizens at the best trade-off for cost.
One person, one vote.

Due to the advancement of electronics, newer vehicles are becoming more difficult to steal. Therefore, thieves are more apt to steal vehicles with less hassle. Who would have thunk that? Not you of course.
No, I prefer to have money in my pocket which I rightfully earned. You weak liberal prefer to bend over and take it up the rear, buying the hype from the government all in the name of security. There are many instances where the "old" way works. You kill, you get killed. You run, you get shot. "Tough" works when it's implemented fully. Criminals don't need to think twice about the consequences when they know 100% their fate. You don't view many thefts overseas because they chop your hand off for stealing in many countries.
You'll never understand due to your weak civil mentality preferring tax dollars to pay for the ethical treatment of prisoners and criminals. Heaven forbid if they don't have their workout time, internet time, social time, television time and of course, if they have hard labor behind bars.
Bottom line, you're a pussy.

Technology evolves and thieves evolve. Instead of using a dent puller and a screwdriver, thieves just take the keys or mug the owner for the keys. With newer technology, vehicles are again easy to steal. I know how to wire a car. I know how to work around the key chip and so forth. I always assume others can know these things.
Personally, I vote down every tax and millage I can. Make them squeeze what they can out of what they have.
I do somewhat believe in the Code of Hammurabi, not all 282 laws, but many that require like for like payment.
