    He never attacked the police.

    People use 1-sided slogans on these topics. If ramming a vehicle with another vehicle constitutes "attempted murder," then at that point the guy had no choice but to continue to try to get away with 2 officers trying to kill him. In fact, he was not trying to kill cops and cops were not trying to kill him in the slow speed vehicle collisions.

    If his backing the trailer or truck into a police car at all of 5 mph constituted trying to kill the officers, then the officers hitting the truck constituted trying to kill him. But that isn't what it was for either. For him it was trying to get away. For them it was trying to stop him. Nothing more or less than that. None of it even set off airbags - that police cars have half a dozen of.

    There is stupid on every side of this story.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yes to some degree, though not deliberately nor do I see him having done so.

    But, then, so were the police in the chase, right? In fact, dispatch or whoever was on the police radio repeatedly pointed that out to the pursuing officers - specifically danger to pedestrians by the police cars. Specifically given pedestrians as reason to "back off" the chase due to "pedestrians in the area."

    This is the problem with police chases. The guy was not armed. NOTHING indicated his goal was to harm anyone. They knew who he was. They knew whose truck and why he took it. How did police cars racing thru campus make this safer for "bystanders?"

    Shooting out tires doesn't work? Why not? We see what trouble a car has with one flat tire all the time...

    Have to say I've never seen them do that on ANY COPS shows from ANY country. You may be confusing that with a box maneuver.
    No, they do the Pit, the Box and ram. I live in New Zealand and we get shows from the USA, the UK, Australia and local shows all the time and I see them do it in every country. ...And for good or bad I watch a LOT of these shows.

    Yep, the rules are different for those committing the crimes and those enforcing the laws. Welcome to reality. Guess what, the rules are different for fire fighters than they are for arsonists.
    You don't have to be a dick... as an ex-fire fighter I understand the difference. I only said it was ironic, not that it wasn't right.

    I think that cops ramming cars in most instances is fine. Ramming cop cars is not, but it should not be attmepted murder. Assault works nicely as long as the cop is in his car. No need to get crazy with the charges as if the cop is some god like Obama.

    There are certain charges that are vastly overused - like "resisting arrest" or "interfering with a police officer."

    An officer tells someone "you're under arrest, turn around." The person answers, "Why?! What law did I break?" Now it's also "resisting arrest" and if the person's friend says "what are you arresting him/her for?," that person has committed "interfering with a police officer." And for many police a person tying to prevent being further beaten by blocking blows with their arms constitutes "assaulting a police officer" too.

    Or the fella in Oklahoma who got a life sentence for spitting on a police officer. But, in Oklahoma, if a police officer all but beats someone to death he MIGHT lose his job at the worse.

    Luckily, moderators dont' have that ability. How many times would they have had to shoot me dozens of times so far?
    Most emotionally upset people do not nearly hit people with their car.

    Are you complaining about moderating?
