I send my condolences to the Hamilton and Pearson family. I went to school with Don(Madison H.S)and he was the type to keep a smile on everybody's face. May he rest in peace. God Bless!

I can't understand why the police will repeat the same mistake a day later. Both chases ended up in tragedy. Now the lives of 3 innocents bystanders are gone too soon. You would think that an officer would be professional and intellegent enough not to make the same decision to chase another bunch of kids on a snow an icy road! What could have they been thinking? Another question. "was it worth the lives of innocent people and they families to caught these theives? That's something these officers will have to ask themselves every day for the rest of their lives. Birmingham, Alabama

My mother and I were this story on the news. As we heard and seen the heartbreak from these victims' loved ones; our hearts ached for them. To the dear families, please know that our Great God never puts too much on us than we can bear. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that you find true comfort and peace from GOD. He will get you through this.

My sincerest condolences to the families who lost their loved ones so tragically and needlessly. I agree with Aunt Phyllis. The police chases through areas of high traffic are dangerous and show an egregious lack of good common sense and judgement. Surely with all the technology in place there must be a better way.
Was the Suburban worth these lives?

I don't want to take away from the tragic losses upon these families. It is a terrible thing and my prayers are with them.
I also don't understand why of all things the police automatically get the blame. Course they will always get the blame. First "Aunt Phyllis," there wasn't any snow or ice on the roads. Secondly I feel the blame rests solely on the criminals that stole the car and fled police. Had they had better morals and decision making instilled in the, they would not have been in a position to be in a stolen car, would not have stolen a car, and would not flee from police.
The police would also get the blame if, for example, they let these "thieves" just go, and as a result of letting them go, they go on to kill innocent people with a gun instead of a car. Then the question would be "why did the police let them go. The shooting could've been prevented if they would've stopped them sooner."
It is easy to say these people or those people made mistakes, but I think it is clear the ones who made mistakes are the ones who stole the car, fled, devastated innocent lives and families of innocent people, and those who didn't instill better values into these young men.

Are you serious? Why is it that the police always are automatically blamed, you don't even know all the details. My heart also goes out to the victims. This is a very sad and tragic story. The blame lies on a eighteen year old boy who wanted to go out joy riding in a stolen vehicle and killed innocent people as a result. If someone stole your vehicle you would call the police immediately and expect them to help you, the police put their lives in danger everyday to protect communities not purposely harm them. Please put the blame where it belongs, on a eigteen year old young man who disregarded care for any other of Gods children.

While the loss of any life is tragic, I knew the moment I heard about these unfortunate deaths and how they occurred, someone would point the finger at Police. This has been and always will be a double edged sword - If Police chase and the CRIMINAL'S failure to stop in the first place leads to a crash, the Police are at fault, right Liberals??? If the Police dont give chase and the criminal escapes only to commit more crimes, the Liberals complain that the Police "didnt do their job" and "let the criminal get away". Please keep in mind why there was a chase in the first place, because someone first committed a crime, then CHOSE to NOT STOP for Police. If the driver PULLS OVER in the first place, all the lives are saved. In these cases where all policies are followed, lets point the finger where it belongs - at the piece of garbage behind the wheel...May all victims rest in peace...

It's so sad to hear that these two young men have lost their lives so early in the year, due to negligence of inconsiderate and ingnorant people. My prayers go out to both the victims and the suspects family. As for the police, they need to think before deciding to pursue in a chase, especially in the city. Too many lives have been taken because of reckless and bad decisions.

Really... your car, some thug in it and the cops dont chase em. You're gonna say "Well.. I'm glad no one got hurt?" Be honest here. Theives run.. cops chase. If someone that's innocent gets hurt when doing so it's NOT the fault of the person that decided to pursue.. it's the fault of the person that decided to run.
