Another police chase ends badly

By Skidbladnir 19 December 2007 123

According to the The ABC, the Clea Rose coronial inquest is due to publish findings today.
But in a bad case of unfortunate timing, the ABC are also reporting that a 17 year old male is in a serious condition after a bungled police chase last night.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, I’d say judges get their fair share here. I just have to say Terry Higgins and these guys will start barking.

They did a good job with the 17-year old who ran away. The fact that he crashed into a tree was his own fault. I hope I made that clear in that topic.

DMD, Fair call in that Police need to be accountable, But lets be realistic here, No matter what Police do, there is always someone who camplains. It’s not very often you here a forum started about what a great job the Police did. There is a need to be accountable, but gees, What about other organisations that should be accountable, ie firies, doctors, government, judges, etc etc. The list goes on, however it always seems to come back to the cops.

It seems like that, Vicepope. But as you said, it’s alot different from immunization. The main part is that there are alternate measures to combating car crime. Plates, descriptions (which work only sometimes), backing off and following at a safe distance (like the case in the other topic), harsher penalties for evading police (which would probably stop most of the ‘aw, I don’t want a DUI – slam the pedal’ types) and I’m sure the law enforcement tactical geniuses have a few other tricks up their sleeves.

The other main part is that with vaccination, you are generally trying to save lives, not property. As other people have said, no car can ever be worth someones life, ever.
