Flener had not been drinking and had no drugs in his system. He did have a lengthy history of drug related problems. No one has come forth with the fact he was trying to change his life for the better by finding employment and being clean and sober. The use of the stop sticks was wrong! He was not being chased for murder, kidnapping, rape, robbing a bank, blowing up a building, or having hostages. Could someone please say why he was being chased? The media is focusing on his past mistakes for which he did not need to die for! How about someone in the media have some respect and get the facts straight. It seems that the focus is on protecting the police department who acted on pure stupidity. I say to the Middletown Division of Police... stop being cowards and man up!

Audrea....I say Kudos to police....drugs and thugs are a threat to my family and if you choose to do drugs and get behind a "missle" driving over 100 m.p.h. you have caused your own demise.

you dont know what he had in his system. It takes weeks for a report to come back. He had open beer cans in his car so quit acting like he was some saint. He was drinking and driving over 100 mph.
