seems to me if you have stolen a police car, presumably, one would think it has a few weapons in it, your basically a dangerous felon . refusing to pull over once law enforcement catches up to you seems to prove this. running the guy off the road might have saved lives in the long run. The suspect was certainly acting in a dangerous manner. Good job by the trooper in my opinion
