    Police Chase

    I normally don't have a problem with police chases but these one seemed very dangerous for the conditions.

    Re: Police Chase

    You would think the officer involved would of used better judgement and called off the chase. I realize you wanna put these people behind bars but sometimes peoples lives mean more.

    Re: Police Chase

    There are some very strict rules in regards to pursuit (which actually vary by agency) from what I saw of the video there was no reason to call off the pursuit no one was in danger except the officer and the suspect.

    And how would you feel if the deputy let these two go and they were doped up and either killed a love one in a car wreck or broke into your house and rapped and killed your loved ones?

    Well, I would be very upset about the killing part. But the rapping - I guess it depends on their skills.

    How would you feel if your wife and children were killed crossing the intersection that the PO and suspect slid through.

    Like I said, most of the time I'm fine with the police driving 100+ mph on dry pavement to pull over a car but as you can see from this video, the PO was out of control.

    I think it's hard sometimes for cops to back off once a chase has started because of adrenaline. How about following 1/8 of a mile back instead and call for help?

    Re: Police Chase

    The officer did what needed to be done. Period. As a result there are now 2 less career criminals roaming around in Iowa looking for their next victims.

    To the officer that took them down.... ... Nice work.

    Re: Police Chase

    Most of the chase was on gravel roads. Not much to worry about when those roads probably see less than 50 trips per day, plus in Central Iowa you can see if anyone is coming from miles away.

    With dre dropping beats and tupac with the lyrics-I'm down.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Strange part is, Robert and Candice look like such a nice couple.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
