[QUOTE=cobravenom39;1429317]Had I been a cop, I probably would have freaked out when that cop got hit.
Racial, no way. Just a bunch of cops who haven't been trained in how to handle a situation like that.
They should have never put the spike strips out and they should have never chased him.
I'm sure they got his plates and they knew were he was going. Radio ahead and let the guy think the chase is over, they'll still nab him later when he's trying to blend into traffic, and if they don't no big deal. It's better than any person (including the suspect) or God forbid an innocent bystander getting hurt or killed.
I'm not a cop hater or anything, but I am a strict believer in the Constitution. Police officers are part of the executive branch of the government and shouldn't take the role of Judge by beating an suspect who is incoherent. The power should be in hands of the people, not the government's.
How do we know he was incoherent, probably but it is only an assumption. It looked pretty real to me when he tried to run the cop over, attempted murder????? He flipped the car, and got thrown out, big deal people walk away from that. Bottom line, I think they just got caught in the moment and didn't use the best judgement
