make it look like the biker's fault...
Why would they make it look like it's the fault of the motorcycle that was in a highspeed chase and would not pull over... and then fled the scene and has yet to turn himself in?
Um... of course it's at least partially his fault.
cause & effect.
cause: Wouldnt pull over - effect: 2 dead 15 injured.
That would be the bikers fault
I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that had the biker not tried to flee, there wouldn't have been an accident. Maybe, just a guess.
It the LEOs fault for trying to do their job. :roll: Gosh, who would have thought... :?:
did you not read the story?
traffic was heavy; bike was weaving in and out; cop doing the same and the cop smashed into a car; flipped it onto the other side of the highway and people died there.
this is why some people have laws against chasing bikes.
this was definately the cop's fck up. he was the one running an american boat through heavy traffic in a very unsafe manner.
he should have just called it in and waited for someone up the road to nab the bike instead of going die-hard on his a$$.
Did you not use common sense? I'll break it down for you.Originally Posted by Computerjlt
#1 Bike is speeding
#2 Police try to pull over bike
#3 Bike runs from police and does not stop
#4 Police chase bike
#5 Police crashes and causes accident
So let's see, if # 3 never happened then there would have been no accident. Though it might be true that it could have been avoided if the police stopped chasing the bike it would have definitely been avoided if the bike did not run. Don't be retarded, the guy on the bike put everyone in danger and was doing something illegal while the police were trying to bring him to justice to make the roads safer.
yea making the roads safer by SMASHING INTO A CAR AND KILLING TWO PEOPLE AND INJURING FIFTEEN!!!
the cop didnt have to chase in heavy traffic; like i said; he could have radio'd it in.
this accident was 100% the cop's fault. The bike was stupid for running but the cop was even stupider to chase in his land barge thinking he could keep up with a bike by maneuvering.
if the cop had used better judgment he could have waited for traffic to move out of his way instead of pulling some movie bullshiats or like i said just radio'd ahead.
god forbid you let the bike crash on his own; if that would have happened he would have just hurt himself but you take a 2 ton cruiser; smash that into another car and you have serious carnage. at worst the bike probably would have laid it over on a turn and became a grease spot on the road and would have won the darwin award.
/edit: you know if the bike had just shot up a bank or killed a bus full of babies or some crap maybe the chase would have been justified. But being as he was being stopped for speeding to generate revenue, his speed had nothing to do with safety and dont give me some bullshiat that it was; everyone on this board speeds so dont pull the hypocrite card. The leo was just out to meet his quota for the day to unfairly tax some dude on a bike; instead he THE COP winds up killing two and injuring more. I hope the families of those involved sue the pos city/county whatever into the ground
Speeding and felony evasion/ resisting arrest are completely different things. And this will be my last post on here since obviously it is not getting through to you. I have in no way claimed that the cop could not have acted differently and it might have been prevented. However, it is a known fact and can't be argued that the biker deciding to run was the root source of the whole problem and he was the one breaking the law. He broke the law, the cop tried to pull him over, he decided to step it up and put everyone at much more risk by turning it into a high speed chase and breaking even more laws.
Any decent sportbike will outrun a police cruiser with ease, which is why many departments ban such chases. The cop made a poor decision in chasing a sportbike in heavy traffic. The police failed to take into account the consequences of their actions. In this case, they made a poor decision that left 2 killed and 15 injured. Was the cost in life justified over what was most likely a traffic violation? We will never know the true reason because the PGPD will lie or make up something to make themselves appear innocent(they have a long and well documented history of corruption and cover ups). Accountability should lie with the police for choosing to pursue a bike in rushour traffic. They could have prevented this tragedy from happening by not pursuing in the first place.Originally Posted by licamell
So what is one MD delegate proposing as a solution to this? Instead of changing pursuit policies, he was talking about banning sportbikes in MD :roll:
