    You should add that the stolen SUV that hit the women on the sidewalk was involved in a police chase.

  • walks bikes drives

    They didn’t post the surveillance video they talked about, but it didn’t seem like it was a police chase from the writing, just that it was being tailed.

    But all he was charged with was related to the fact he was driving a car that was stolen. If the police car was behind it, they obviously would have witnessed him run the red light (2 they said) and the assault on the pedestrians.

    Given that the police probably gave the statement to the press, I’m sure they want to downplay the possibility that a chase could have caused the stolen car driver to be more reckless and led to this collision. I think more information will come out on this one.

    Ed Mullins, staunch defender of ticket fixing? We are screwed!

    Why can’t we get a real, decorated cop from another part of the country police culture is centered on law enforcement instead of ingrained practices of corruption and abusing unfavored groups?

    Supposedly Mullins said he doesn’t want the job.

    I don’t know where this “real, decorated cop” would come from either. The same boneheaded, well-if-it-doesn’t-work-let’s-just-do-it-again-until-it-does RWA policies have infected most big city police forces in America, and in fact ex-NYC officials even travel around the country, maybe even the word, peddling them for consultant fees (example: Batlimore).
