I hope that ass kicking hoedown was worth next years budget.
 
2017-06-29 7:15:40 PM  
Not that I condone any part of what happened in any way, shape or for, but I did enjoy the video.

If it had been a scene in a screwball comedy movie, it would have been hilarious.

He was resisting arrest!

But seriously, those cops are morons.  How the fark they didn't manage to pit maneuver that shiatty pickup is pitiful.  They should be ashamed of themselves.

BunkyBrewman: pit maneuver


I kept wondering why in the hell they weren't doing a pit maneuver myself. They certainly had more than one opportunity to try that.

Yes, because even though 84% of people shot by police aren't black, only black people are shot by the police.  Your comments are bad and you should feel bad.

Ever notice in a football game where one side is getting hammered in a shutout that those guys can get all chippy and start throwing punches thanks to their frustrating failures?

Yeah, that's really helpful. Not.

I'm struggling to have a problem with this. Dude endangered dozens of people. Deserved it.
 
2017-06-29 9:27:39 PM  
As much as I know it's wrong, there is a very real part of me that doesn't blame the cops for kicking these idiots asses after a chase like this. I remember in my small burg a few years ago when some dumb dumb led police on a high speed chase after shoplifting something that was relatively worthless and ended up running over someone's grandparents, killing both of them. The suspect, of course, wasn't even injured.

So yeah, I guess I don't mind the ass kicking....to a certain degree.

And yes, I realize it's wrong.
 
2017-06-29 9:29:18 PM  
No they didn't beat the guy. He set himself on fire, we just trying to put it out.

It is ok for cops to shoot white people and it is ok for black people to shoot black people at least according to the rage meter.

Look up the per capita rates for being shot to death with unarmed.   It isn't a black & white problem.

jmr61:   I'm struggling to have a problem with this. Dude endangered dozens of people. Deserved it.

Police endangered even more.   Just one of the reasons why LEOs that have a helicopter don't do high speed chases any longer.  No car is ever going to outrun a chopper.  Ever.

while, not with.

FTFM
 
2017-06-29 9:43:57 PM  
Should be a policy to only have maybe three cars chasing. You don't need to tie up the time of 10-15 cops to chase down a single car with one or maybe two people in it.

That number is actually irrelevant.  It is the per capita number of shootings based on race that tell the real story.
 
2017-06-29 9:53:50 PM  
Also, there should be a law that all police chase videos need to be sped up and given the Yackety Sax sound track.
 
2017-06-29 9:55:14 PM  
The best part was all the cop cars spraying outward throughout the farm field.  I think there would have been a crash amongst themselves if the perp didn't wreck so quickly.

It depends on a few different circumstances when we're allowed to execute such a tactic.

Some departments have a blanket policy of no pitting due to past incidents not having a good outcome. Nobody wants the vehicle to escape, but far more than that nobody wants to see innocents become statistics. Even if pitting is permitted, permission is most likely required. Then, even if permission is granted, if the lead vehicle can't find the right moment for it to be done with a minimum chance of any number of things going horribly wrong it won't be done if that officer isn't comfortable executing it.

I'll have to watch the video again later but I only remember them being on roads with one lane going each way and there were a number of close calls as it was without the maneuver being attempted. The officer can control his vehicle and to a very limited extent he can control the vehicle he is engaged with. What the officer can't control is how the operator of a vehicle is going to react when they find themselves heading at a pursuit with more than a handful of vehicles involved, let alone how that person would react when the lane they're in has a police vehicle heading straight at them and a truck coming at them in the opposing lane.

Simply put, a lot of circumstances have to line up properly and when something is a judgment call risks are not taken until they become necessary.

Reminds me of this chase that ended right by where I work.

Turn Down For What Fail - Crazy Woman Car Chase #TDFWFail

It is also the same stretch of road where a girl Nikki Catsouras was mad at her dad and so she stole his Porsche and was speeding and "allegedly" on cocaine, ended up tearing half her head off in a crash and the pictures got released on the internet and the parents sued.

Wow, that dude got the ol wood shampoo from a dozen cops who were practically standing in line to stop him a new mud hole. Looked like that scene in Airplane with the hysterical woman passenger.

I heard the music from Benny Hill watching that video.

Cops already had the beating in hand but there were like a dozen more waiting in line for their turn.

My favorite was the cop who came up at the end and shoved other cops out of the way so he could get in a kick.

More if you include misprision of felony, which, itself, is a felony.
