>was wanted for possession of a controlled substance

As well as some additional charges which have that whiff of police invention to me.

Most police know there are risks in high speed pursuits, whether it is ultimately a cop car or a perp's car that ends up striking someone or something.

Not these cops! Maybe this controlled substance fellow didn't know enough to get on any police bribery payroll. That would surely make him public enemy no. 1.

NY's Top Court Rejects Local Man's Murder Conviction
NY's Top Court Rejects Local Man's Murder Conviction
New York's top court rejected a Rochester parolee's murder conviction in the death of a woman in a car crash back in 2004.

The Court of Appeals said the evidence was legally insufficient for the jury to convict Michael Prindle of "depraved indifference murder" in the death of Lisa Kuligowski, 27.

Prindle stole a snowplow, lead police on a chase in his van, and crashed. Kuligowski was a passenger in the van.

The court did uphold his conviction for second degree manslaughter. His sentence of 22 years to life will be shortened as a result of the ruling.

Nobody ever said the cops don't get their way, by hook or by crook.

I have very personal knowledge of this case both of Mike and the mother, he did intentional cause the accident and the death , but what the court is saying , there isn't enough evidence to give him the max , he will do the mim,

he is going to be re-tried as a persistent felony which he is , a fact I do know ,

now nobody is saying there isn't corruption in all walks of life , even the presidency

oh his reasoning was the police would have to care for the accident victim and he gets away , which he did , for awhile

Your word around here is gold, I tell you, gold.

Neither of your replies speaks to the common sense point: Some police departments have, you know, policies about when to engage in high speed chases.

For exactly this reason - they can lead to fatal accidents.

I guess the fatality here was just another product of our glorious "war on drugs." The "war on turrur" must have had the day off.

Gladly stupid, although it won't do any good.

Apparently the original charge was a drug related one (along with the oft made up "resisting" claims.) You see, drunk alike, that was my entire point: Some departments wisely have policies about when to engage in high speed pursuits...because of the dangers to civilians not involved in the event.

But the war on drugs is so damn important to this country, of course, that no matter how many jails get filled, how many localities get bankrupted, no matter how many families are torn asunder, no matter how many others get killed in gang wars (or in drug arrest related high speed chases,) no matter how much tax revenue is lost, we MUST react to any drug crime as though it's the most serious threat on earth!

Of course, I recognize drug use - including tobacco and alcohol - are very damaging problems. That's why they should be treated as serious medical and social problems...rather than as serious, quasi military-law enforcement ones.

I know this is an argument made up of inter related ideas and propositions, and as such will be impenetrable through an alcoholic haze.

No cretin, no one with a brain said, "you shouldn't be pursued unless you are a foot."

Lots of police departments have policies about when and when not to engage in high speed pursuits...for exactly the reasons demonstrated in this story.

And, again for the terminally stoopit, much of the "war on drugs," like the "war on turrur," is an overheated, hysterical, counter productive mirage, although they both certainly feed into corporate profits for a select group of companies.

As I predicted, a simple explanation will not help in your case. Now lay off the sauce.

Because I think you're a lying drunk, and because many police departments already have such policies. They're already written.

Also, if you didn't read like such a damn alcoholic all the time you would have understood that I don't consider drug crimes or drug priors - as in this case - worth having sociopaths with badges drag racing all around town, thereby directly or indirectly causing truly innocent bystanders to be killed.

Okay, you stoopit pos?

I was the jury foreman on this case and we gave this a great deal of thought. What it came down to was the Mr. Prindle didn't attempt to brake or avoid the collision the killed a young woman. He deserved the 22 years he got, because people like Mr. Prindle will surely do it again.
