This is tragic. That being said, there shouldn't be high-speed chases except in extremely rare situations. There are other alternatives. Helicopters, other squads, road blocks, meet the perp at their home. Officers who participate in high-speed chases are partly responsible when deaths and physical damages occur as a result of same.

Here is a link to see this slugs criminal record, http://pa.courts.state.mn.us/default.aspx

The liberal Judges who did not incarcerate this oxygen thief are just as guilty in my book!! At what point do the courts consider somebody to be a habitual offender and lock them up?!?!

He should be executed!! If the courts don't have the stomach for it, I do! Just kill him, two counts of MURDER!!!

because we all have to learn to spell penalty correctly first, on a different note this kid should be tried for 2nd degree murder and when found guilty spend the rest of his stinking life behind bars.

i have long thought that county sheriffs offices should be administered differently than they are. replace at least ONE deputy with special investigator who focuses on active criminals who are within that county's jurisdiction. in the case of mr gilles instead of having to apprehend him in a high speed chase why not follow up his outstanding warrant by investigation. was there current activity on his social security account? were family members, neighbors, and townspeople interviewed and asked to report his whereabouts if they caught sight of him? had he purchased license plate tabs at the courthouse? any credit card activity or contact with any state bureau i.e. fishing license ect.? many,many other angles to follow up also all to prevent tragedy like this. remember-this person was wanted on drug charges,assault charges, andd fleeing police already.

They wouldn't have been chasing him if he had just stopped and he was clearly a risk to public safety before the chase!

Here is a look into this fine fellow's life:

If you lived in the small towns of America where you are "known" by the local authorities, you too may be stopped 10's of times in your shortlife too.
This guy is well known, and was chased because he was well known!
Most of his Traffic Offenses would not have happened to Joe Regular Citizen....clearly this guy was not liked, and he fled out of contempt for the constant attention from the local Barney Fife's.
The authorities knew who he was when they decided to endanger the public ny instigating a police chase, they clearly knew where he lived....and yet the Officers CHOSE to chase him!....You are Dannnm Right they have responsibility for the death too!
And for all you "Kill Him" Nazis....I am sure that to be consistent you feel the same about the drunk drivers you know, or have been. and also want death for your sister or daughter if she kills while drunk driving?......Jerks!

Just why do you think this low life was well know by the authorities? Did he stop too many times in no parking zones to pull kittens from burning buildings? Maybe he was caught jaywalking while helping a blind nun cross the street. Was he cited for littering when he dropped the textbook belonging to a child he was tutoring?

No, he was known and not liked by the police for many other reasons! He had MANY traffic violations, but the theft and burglary charges are all I need to see to know he is a maggot.

So this local yokle is now in the slammer.

2 innocent people are dead.

The local yokle will cost millions to incarcerate for many years.

I just don't see how chasing him was a Win Win. OR even a Win for that matter!!!

COPs really do want to catch their man, that is IMPORTANT...

Um, I hope you're joking. It's pretty simple: when the cops turn on these magical things called lights and sirens, YOU PULL OVER. I suppose had the cops NOT attempted a chase and the guy hit and killed someone then you'd be whining that the cops didn't do their job and endangered the public. It's always someone else's fault, right?

Get a clue, Continence.

And it has nothing to do with the Police Chase.
He no more meant to kill 2 people than the Uncle in St Paul that set the house on fire and killed his nephew....or the Mommy that recently killed her son by leaving him in the bath while she played on Facebook, or the Mommy that recently drove over her child, ot he Dad that let his kids slide down thw hill into the pond!
People die for no good reason.....There needs to be a very comelling reason for the Police to set up/participate in a situation before is is worth risking a life.....eeven the scuuuuumbags life!
Are these concepts that far above the caveman mentality of you posters?

Clearly you have some issues with law enforcement, but you're missing the point. I'll help you. The person responsible for the deaths of these two individuals is the person who was driving the car recklessly - regardless of whether he was being chased by police or not. We don't know why the police were chasing him. What if the guy was swerving on to the sidewalk or hit a parked car prior to the cop turning his sirens on?

I doubt this kid intended for two people to die. But it's still his poor judgment and inability to follow the law that caused this accident. No one else's. People need to own up to their actions and quit blaming everyone else.

Ugh, no
I will research in the AM how many "citizens" were "murdered" by Law Enforcement in the past 5-10 years when they ran a signal because they had "those magical things on".
BTW, doing their job is called "public safety". Nobody is safe when angst driven, hormone motivated "Enforcers" use every opportunity they can to "Enforce the Law"...it isn't soposed to be about the law....it is supposed to be about protect and serve....and enforcing was never supposed to be the main purpose.
If the "Potential" exists to let a traffic violator go vs risk innocent lives....Yes, let the scuumbag go, there would have been another chance, or another day.
There are so many laws that another criminal traffic violator will come along any time for the Enforcer to play out public safety on.

Youíre a moron, the death penalty for this crime is absurd, you people talk like a bunch of uncivilized animals, just like the guy that killed, he should be punished and i feel he should never be free again, but the death penalty is a little on the strong side, so stick your out side the rules where the sun donít shine and pity the family who lost their loved ones, when minnesota passes a law for the death penalty for this type of crime, so be it, but until that happens shut uo, and there is nothing wrong with the way i live. By the way chasing this guy for an outstanding drug warrant was just as stupid as him running, your complaint should be with the cowboy cop who was chasing this idiot, no chase, no one would have died, maybe you should think outside your box.
