Not to be a dick, but it was just a matter of time.

It is high time that natural selection took an active part in the antics of cowboy journalism.

Agreed.
 
2007-07-27 4:30:00 PM  
So this guy will be charged with murder now? Is that how it works?
 
2007-07-27 4:30:00 PM  
this is horrible. They were just doing their jobs.

Beat me to it. Also surprised it hadn't been in a movie.

See helicopters 3, 4 and 5 for live coverage of the crash.
 
2007-07-27 4:30:33 PM  
I wonder if that'll add murder charges to the indictment.
 
2007-07-27 4:30:47 PM  
Yes but are there now helicopters covering the downed helicopter story?????
 
2007-07-27 4:30:56 PM  
I like it that the picture illustrating the article is a chopper shot.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:06 PM  
Another thread where farkers relish in the deaths of others. Yippee!
 
2007-07-27 4:31:07 PM  
Owned!
 
2007-07-27 4:31:16 PM  
How far could the helicopters fly after colliding?

They made it all the way to the scene of the crash.......
 
2007-07-27 4:31:17 PM  
Good, I wish two more would crash while trying to get footage of the wreckage and so on until critical media bullshiat mass is reached.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:19 PM  
If it were LA, I would be laughing.

This is too bad though, I feel sorry for the families...
 
2007-07-27 4:31:22 PM  
It's about time. They just want to see someone killed.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:26 PM  
I for one welcome our new ironic overlords.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:30 PM  
so the helicopters that survived the mayhem...which do they follow the crash or the ongoing police chase?
 
2007-07-27 4:31:33 PM  
Don't worry, the news lady said she's sending in more choppers!

Idealist1984: See helicopters 3, 4 and 5 for live coverage of the crash.

I lol'ed.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:40 PM  
I can hear the anchorman now. We'll have a chopper over the scene in just.... oh ummmm appears our chopper is in the scene.

/nothing.

Yes I always hate to see bad things happening to those trying to capitalise on others' problems.
 
2007-07-27 4:31:57 PM  
FTA:
Video from the scene showed flames and thick black smoke from where both helicopters cashed.

Just before the crashes, the driver of the truck police had been chasing had jumped out of the nearly disabled flatbed pickup and carjacked another truck.

"I was dirivng and heard a ban

Stay with KPHO.com for late-breaking details.


That's breaking news right there. They didn't even finish their last word, or spell driving correctly.

Perhaps the word was "band of brothers trailer".
 
2007-07-27 4:32:16 PM  
I sure hope someone got video. Maybe they can save some from the wreckage.
 
2007-07-27 4:32:17 PM  
1. AZ Family's story says "two helicopters crashed and burned." That's fantastic respect for the dead, especially when one of them was your own pilot.

2. Anonymous to be blamed.
 
2007-07-27 4:32:19 PM  
Also known as a "near miss".
 
2007-07-27 4:32:46 PM  
BOOM
 
2007-07-27 4:32:56 PM  
i got 20 to 1 odds says that the criminals running from the police will be charged with the deaths of those from the helicopter accidents.

"I was dirivng and heard a ban"

"I was dirivng and heard a ban"

Uh... What?
 
2007-07-27 4:33:02 PM  
Were the drunk astronauts flying?

Bobbylishus: i got 20 to 1 odds says that the criminals running from the police will be charged with the deaths of those from the helicopter accidents.

Give me $100 on that bet.
 
2007-07-27 4:33:28 PM  
Video?
 
2007-07-27 4:33:37 PM  
Here's live video (new window) of the scene from a third helicopter.
 
2007-07-27 4:33:42 PM  
GoofingOff: So this guy will be charged with murder now? Is that how it works?

That's a good question. I could understand it if he injured a passerby/cop on the ground or caused some sort of other accident down there. However, something doesn't feel right charging him for killing people who chose to actively chase the incident to capture on video...
 
2007-07-27 4:33:44 PM

Slow down, man.

GoofingOff: So this guy will be charged with murder now? Is that how it works?

Unfortunately, you're probably right.
 
2007-07-27 4:33:58 PM  
LOL HELIPAD.

Couldn't goof off for another 34 seconds, could you?
 
2007-07-27 4:34:04 PM  
Did the third helicopter chasing the police get footage of the crash? It would make an awesome FAIL picture.

This is just like those
stories about workmen
being overcome with methane
gas while cleaning a septic
tank. Then when their fellow
workers come to help them,
and they too are overcome.
Sometimes a tank will claim
like, three people before
someone wises up.

Channel 15

Where the hell is a UHF station getting the cash for a helicopter?

The last time Chopper 4 crashed (its a regular occurance) in NYC, filmed of course by Chopper 7 (new window)
 
2007-07-27 4:34:43 PM  
Add Homicide to the list of charges now.

kshilcutt: Not to be a dick, but
No offense, but...
Don't take this the wrong way, but...
I'm sorry, but...

Why do people even bother starting out a sentence like that?

With every intention of being a farking biatch, show some spine. Say it loud and be proud! It WAS only a matter of time.

/Yes, they deserved to die, and I hope they burn in hell!!!!!
 
2007-07-27 4:34:52 PM  
But WHO will watch the white Ford Bronco speed away now?!?

Was this sponsored by Jack Daniel's or something?
(Please God YES!)

"This is Dicky Snipcut with your eye in the sky! It would appear that we've got a high-speed pursuit down below, and the Phoenix police department is hot on the trail of a couple of twenty-something male nigg...wait, this just in...it would appear that another local chopper is heading straight for us! This is truly incredible folks; if you've never seen an in-flight helicopter up close, I highly suggest tha.."

*BOOM*

We're sorry to report that we are experiencing some technical difficulties. Please stay tuned for additional coverage.
