I'm f'ing worked up today about people getting killed unnecessarily; under preventable circumstances.
I literally got viscerally ill watching and listening to accident footage and the accompanying reports and LE comments. There is nothing but incidental, cold, matter-of-fact mention of the girl simply being ejected from the vehicle and being pronounced dead on scene. Matter of fact, like a friggin mailbox got taken out.
And then you have bizarre broward sheriff Scott Israel praising LE, calling them "courageous" "heroes" for moving in to the poor girl "despite the risk" of the possibly armed animal who hit her. What? They move a car between the girl and the guy in a mangled car 150' away and that makes them courageous heroes?!! I mean come on? You don't think that was a Vulcan mind trick kinda damage control thing for the sheriff to say in case there was flack about the poor girl getting killed by the guy running from the cops in the first place?? It HAS to have been, cause it was almost bizarre in its misplaced inappropriateness, what the sheriff said! Friggin bizarre!
And I'm sick of the misuse of the word hero.....makes me wanna vomit. And I bet the LE who moved in to check on the girl would agree with me!
Anyway, I just can't rectify some LE actions when compared to others. I mean, that guy in Waikiki the cops shot was ramming cars, so it was a legit kill, right? Ok, and so comparatively, a guy who LE knows just murdered people is doing 100mph running from LE, and they can't shoot to kill HIM? I mean there was an LE helicopter on this guy the whole time in addition to the news chopper. it's not Florida LE vs hawaii LE, is it? Aren't LE tactics and engagement rules standard for such a situation? A murderer f'ing flying down a highway and they don't maul this guy?
Couldn't they have blocked traffic intersecting the road this guy was on so this girl didn't get in his way? Or have the police helicopter shoot buckshot at the drivers side roof of the car as they were following him to kill him when he was in an open stretch? Anything! Anything but just let him flee till he killed someone?!
Totally avoidable, that poor girl. Not a hint of remorse or empathy for the girl or her family from LE. And I mean just that! Not a hint! Just praise for the courageous hero cops for going in to check on her. F'ing sickening.
