This happens way too often in the states. Cops in high speed pursuit, and to what end? So it can play out on Cops for all of the Chubby Americans who sit on their couches eating popcorn waiting for something EXCITING to happen. Sad and pathetic if you ask me. Worse is how they try to justify it.

How the phuck does a dodge Neon run away and hide form a State Police Cruiser? A teenager at the wheel no less. Sad that there is always more to these terrible events than is immediately told.

EIGHT DEAD Five under age 9 and all from one family. No wonder someone had the audacity to request a SUPREME COURT RULING/DECISION on these kinds of things when the Police are involved.

Sad and Pathetic. My heart goes out to the families.!

Police chase leads to 8 deaths in California

By TRACIE CONE (AP)

DINUBA, Calif. — Carlos and Jennifer Salazar had piled their five children into their pickup truck and were headed to a Pee Wee football kickoff carnival when a speeding car came out of nowhere.

The occupants had run a stop sign on a rural road and were fleeing a police officer at nearly 80 mph when they barreled into the family's truck. Eight people died: five kids all younger than 8, and the three teenagers trying to outrun police in a tragedy that has stunned people in this rural corner of California's citrus belt.

The four-mile chase Saturday began just before 2 p.m. when Officer Marcos Nunes saw a gray Dodge Neon run a stop sign as it headed east past endless vineyards and orange groves. At speeds approaching 80 mph, police said Nunes saw the car run a second stop sign two miles later as it began to pull away.

He called for the California Highway Patrol helicopter to take over the chase just before the stolen vehicle plowed into Salazar's pickup truck, ejecting four of the children. The fifth child later died at the hospital. Police said the parents and children, who were all inside the cab of the truck, were not wearing seatbelts.

Dinuba Police Chief James Olvera said Nunes, a five-year veteran and Dinuba native, has been put on paid administrative leave and offered counseling. Olvera said the preliminary investigation indicates proper procedure was followed.

"I feel sick inside still," said Olvera, who also was planning to attend the Pee Wee football event Saturday when he got the call about the accident.

The city's chase policy allows an officer to consider many factors when deciding whether it is safe to continue, including road conditions, traffic patterns and weather. The Dinuba department does not set a speed limit for its pursuits.

"People run for a reason," said Olvera, when asked whether a traffic violation is serious enough to warrant a high-speed chase

I left out the CYA bullshit that the AP loves to spew so as to keep on good terms with LE.
Read it all if you wish:

You don't put kids in the back of a pick-up.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Not too sure seatbelts would have saving anyone at 80mph, but at least they could not have been ejected. I don;t know about other states, but California has a law all children must be in seat belts, children under 45 or 55 pounds( don't recall exactly) must be in car seats.

We see a lot of pursuits on TV, and I'm amazed at the number of times they have perfect opportunities for the pit manuver, but they do not do it.

We need to develope some sort of device that zapps a cars computer or ignition, and it just shuts down.

Or just shoot the people who try to speed off.

First quote: The seatbelt issue is as criminal as the speeder. You don't put five kids in the cab unless you have proper seating for them.

Second quote: We do have such a device, been around forever: a directional antenna with a broad-spectrum RF jammer can and will disrupt electronics if enough power is applied. Of course, it will also knock out radio (including cell and cordless phones) over a pretty large area when it's used...EMI forever! :geek:

(Don't ask how many kW you'd have to transmit, I didn't go that far into it, me and a barracks roomie concocted (but didn't implement) such a scheme in the late '70s. Also, I'm visualizing a cop using a hand-held jammer knocking out his own vehicle... Laugh)

Wetbacks killing wetbacks. A win-win situation. 😀 Isn't it nice that these Mestizo (scum) didn't kill or maim Americans this time? ... They usually do, don't they.

"All three young men in the Neon also were killed. The Tulare County Coroner's Office on Monday identified them as Richard Carrasco, 16, of Dinuba; Oscar Esparza, 17, of San Diego; and Arthur Rivas, 19, of Dinuba. Authorities said Esparza was the driver."

Should deport the lot of them!

Glad you showed up Maelstrom, who is first to deny his own bigotry and rasism(scum).
