Should have stopped like he was supposed to. That's what happens when you run from the Po-Po!

Yes, its sad that a young life was lost, but what was the kid trying to hide? If he was already running from the police at 17yrs old, no telling what the future would have held.

As far as the police not chasing him, it is the cops duty to give chase. The police were not in the wrong for trying to stop him for violating some law.

I should not be amazed that SOMEHOW, the POLICE are to blame for his death. When will people start taking responsibility for their actions. IT was NOT the Police officer's fault this thug didn't pull over like he WAS required to by law. You play with fire, you're gonna get burned. I wish all thugs would see that it ain't worth it, pull over and take your punishment like a man, or woman. Don't run away like a sissy

This was a tragic event that could have been avoided.But for you to call the cops stupid shows just how much of an idiotic moron you are.You need tell the cops how stupid they are in person tough guy!

What is a 17 yr old doing out at 1:30am? Did his parents know what he was doing at that hour?

Thats a good question and quite frankly the parents should have to explain it to a judge. Maybe the humiliation would set an example for other parents to GIVE A CRAP about their kids.

Just a simple Freudian slip.... he knows weather he was an "idiot" or not.
As already stated - the kid was playin "gangsta", out riding around at all hours and "avoiding" police. Police that were concerned about some behavior, that was enough to get their attention in the first place.
This kid learned how to drive on a video game (like the two that died in the past week). I really think that these kids believe REAL cars are going to roll back over, the fire goes out, and you just keep on driving, points scored.
I am deeply sorry for the family's loss, and the loss of a possible productive young life, that is now wasted.

Not wearing a seatbelt and "avoiding" the police. Looks like another win for Darwin.

And, reading some of the comments, some seem to believe it was the Police's fault that this kid died? The ONLY person at fault for his death is himself.

I feel sorry for the parents, but a 17 year old should have been at home. Let's see it was 1:30 in the morning, he was driving down the road the wrong way. Perhaps the police should have let him continue until he had ahead on collision with another vehicle and killed someone else. Totally stupid, totally needless,that pretty well describes the manner of his death. Second the vote for a Darwin Award, the gene pool got a needed flush. Let us hope he didn't reproduce. As far as your comments equating the police response with his, your rationalization process is to say the least flawed by your diminished mentality and intellect. Put more simply, you're an idiot.
