When you decide to chase someone, they run faster. How hard is that to comprehend?

Unwashed Mass (aka Dirty Sermon) The method of stop was selected by the criminal NOT the police. In an effort to protect the public from recklessly wrong drivers officers MUST do something. If the police allowed that driver to hit you then YOU would lament a whole different refrain #8 ^]]
