This guy was just in trouble last week, Why is he out? He broke into Pie Factory.

Just went to court last month to file theft charges on him for shoplifting. His charges were reduced so he was loudly thanking Jesus.

And this guy was arrested last week by a Perkins Police Officer. Why was he running free? Thank God innocent people weren't injured. Hope he stays in jail this time!

I don't know about Sandtown or Perkins but in PC, repeat offenders seem to always get off with little or no jail time. They keep offending and get a little time and then get some diversion program or probation and move on to other crimes. It's kind of ridiculous. How many chances should these people get? I mean, come on. They're not going to change and they know how to work the system. It's no skin off their nose and no dent in their bank accounts. The lawyers are free. They don't pay the fines. Then they go out and do something else and keep using and selling drugs in the meantime.

Very poor job by the firemen, they got to the accident way, way, to quick!

Many city law enforcements have abandoned the use of high speed pursuits. They almost always result in injuring or killing innocent people caught in their path. In this case especially, to begin a high speed pursuit for a stolen car is ludicrous. Sometimes I think that officers become over zealous and don't think clearly about what could result from it.

What your saying is incorrect, they didn't stop they changed the departments policies regarding high speed pursuits therefore they're not as common. Please also consider the officer doesn't know why someone running....and please place the blame where it should be on the person running from police because normally they're the ones colliding with innocent bystanders.
