The REALLY stupid humans in Palmero's car were Smith and the 17-year-old who trusted Palmero with their lives. Neither had the sense to tell Palmero to stop running from the police.

Idiot Driver. Idiot police.

Three kids nearly killed over pot. Wow. When will we ever ever learn.

We expect young kids to be morons but the police are supposed to know better.

Did you really write what you did?

That means you are in favor of letting everyone go no matter what--''don't pursue''-- what would our roads look like with that attitude?

If the driver was that impaired to run from an equipment violation then he should have not been operating a vehicle!

We will have to start calling you ''Mayhem Dave'' for that's what our roads would look like!

Or would you prefer to be called "Anarchy Dave"

Calm down.

We are not talking about bank robbers, serial killers, major drug traffickers, etc.

We are talking about 3 kids in a car stopped because they had something like a tail light out.

Obviously, you are looking at drinking or maybe smoking dope. We arrest impaired drivers because they are a danger to others. Nothing like taking an impaired driver & having him drive at high speed risking the general public. Brilliant.

Maybe you ought to read what the driver is charged with!

That entails reading the story something you seldom do!

'''Palmero was taken to Cumberland County Prison on charges of aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, fleeing/eluding from police, DUI, possession of a small amount of marijuana, reckless endangerment, driving under suspended license, and several summary violations.'''

There now you have no excuse for your drivel!

And the total distance of the "pursuit" was extremely short, so not really a true pursuit, but that does not matter to the anti-police/ establishment types like RealDave!!!

is chasing down a car really worth any one persons life. the cops had the plate number and should not have chased the car. we are supposed to teach our kids to walk away from dangerous situations and handle them in a civil manner. under this situation the cops should have been the grown up and pursued the driver at time where peoples lives were not in jeopardy. i mean pot is so bad the cops should have known that the driver wouldn't understand that they needed to pull over... "that is a joke" Bad cops. no donuts!

You know even if they did tell them to stop the driver is going to do whatever the driver wishes you cant even say that...the passengers may have NOTHING to do what the idiot driver was doing..

Tough issues on both sides of this question of police chases. Let's be considerate in our debate.
I guess pot use by young people is a big problem in our area like most parts of the county. I would like to see even more effective investigation of those selling the drugs.

So..when pothead runs a stop sign or is in the wrong lane and kills someone you love I guess that will be OK since it was ONLY pot!
