Feels like all all those activists in Ferguson who were found murdered in the years following.
See, I like that. I knew what he was angling for, just don't fully understand why he doesn't just spit it out. Sometimes Wicki makes me miss @Amstel . . in that regard.
Add: for your young age, you show much more sack. ;)

You're a real piece of shit.
you even read the article?

“Minneapolis police killed my uncle,” Darnella Frazier said in the post. “Another black man lost his life in the hands of the police"

and then her lawyer Mr Crump said police chases should be rare.

the jist they are trying to get at is the police shouldn't have been chasing the car jacker so it's their fault the guy died.

It's how you worded it. You were making fun of that man. The dead one.

Speaking as someone who has lost someone who was an innocent bystander to a police chase, I have to agree with this.
I agree too. A low speed follow, basic pursuit by air. Or let them go. Even that Opticon system(allows cops and EMS to change traffic signals as they approuch) should be used rarely, people are such creatures of habit. Wasn't in effect there anyway . .

Manoa's death here (Albuquerque) in 2000 resulted in a big change in the pursuit policy at APD.

Over time, the needle has gradually tipped back, locally, and (shocking) the deaths have increased as well.

Around here, if the chase exceeds certain speeds through residential areas, the police are supposed to discontinue the pursuit. Better luck next time.
That doesn't mean they do though.
