    That would be correct - but it changes the meaning of your previous statement.

    The "had" implies that it was heard, understood, and considered. "were given" implies that the information was transmitted and nothing more - and that is a big difference.

    Re: Car chase and shots fired

    Whole lot of armchair cops in this thread.

    The idiot was blasting through campus almost running over students...even the trailer he lost rolled almost plowing into a group of students waiting for Cy-Ride.

    I don't care if the cops used a rocket launcher to light him up and remove him from the equation (..and I am a liberal and hate guns).

    Unless your suggesting the officer or dispatcher(I assume) were negligent in communicating that information it makes absolutely zero difference.

    Ugh. I was kind of hoping both the deceased's family and the cop were avoiding the internet. So many harsh things being said about people on both sides.

    Looks like she might be seeking a little too much attention from her Facebook account. You can never say a "if I was in that position" statement because this is so rare but I would probably lay low on this stuff especially if there is the possibility of litigation.

    Re: Car chase and shots fired

    After watching, seriously shocked no one else got killed....him flying through Lincoln Way without hitting a person, car, or the trailer hitting some one is unbelievable.

    Re: Car chase and shots fired

    Seeing the dahscam footage reaffirms my belief that the police were justified. Did they "have options" sure. But with me taking an observer's viewpoint I can't say I disgaree with what happened.

    It was interesting to hear the officers consider calling off the pursuit, but by that time the truck was tearing around, backwards, on central campus which may have sealed his fate, honestly. If he had stayed on the roads I doubt they had any justification to open fire.

    that was really hard to watch even though I knew he wasn't going to hit anyone (amazingly). So lucky no one else was hurt.

    I did hear them say they knew who it was so they could back it off - when the truck was already driving across central campus. And certainly didn't seem like the vehicle was penned in considering he rammed the police car again about 2 seconds before you hear the shots.

    Whoever made that trailer deserves some props. I was impressed by the whip around 4th/Beach and the trailer barely flinched. Definitely more comfortable hauling the golf cart around behind my Edge knowing the trailer can handle that kind of stuff.

    Exactly. The pickup wasn't anywhere near being penned in and appears to have rammed the police car immediately prior to the shots being fired. Furthermore, that pickup appeared to be an F-250 SuperDuty, which gives it about a 2:1 weight advantage over those cop cars. Not likely that the cops were going to penn him in with just two cars.

    Re: Car chase and shots fired

    There was nothing "immobile" or "penned in" about that truck.

    The officer had already tried to get out of his vehicle and get the kid to stop once, and the kid had torn backwards through central campus and rammed his car once more, and another police cruiser as well. The kid rammed the shooter's car once more just a second before the shots were fired.

    Also, the other officer responding to the situation was a DPS officer. I don't know if things have changed, but back in my days on campus, DPS cops didn't carry fire arms. Hard to make the case that the officer shouldn't have fired based on an officer without a fire arm not firing as well.
