The Deadly Danger of Unnecessary Police Chases

I’ve been against unnecessary police chases for quite some time.

However, it was the needless death of a mother of nine, near where I live, that persuaded me of the criminality of unnecessary police chases, wherein innocent people are injured and killed due to unnecessary police chases:

Innocent mother of nine dies in crash caused by police chasing someone — through town at 120 mph –who was ‘burning rubber’ in a Walmart parking lot – http://articles.herald-mail.com/2011-03-17/news/29140369_1_waynesboro-police-coroner-jeffrey-r-conner-police-cruiser

The police officer, in the case above, should be in prison!

Around here, where I live, the towns are very small. And police will chase people — at 120 mph — for burning rubber in the Walmart parking lot.

This is reckless, and criminal, in my opinion.

The police love to blame the people they’re chasing for these deaths and injuries but, according to the law of cause and effect, the police chases are the cause of these deaths and injuries.

Read the headlines of the articles. “Following police chase” and “After police chase” indicates the cause of the deaths.

No police chase, no deaths.

Cause = police chase; effect = deaths.

Pretty simple.

Police chases kill more people each year than floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and lightning – combined http://wpo.st/llzS0

How about police officers getting the license tag numbers of speeders and mailing them a speeding ticket? Instead of chasing them and causing their deaths?

A police chase that ended in a violent crash and injured five people, including a 12-year-old girl, has Pittsburgh Police Chief Cameron McLay revising the department’s policy on pursuing drivers who flee.
