Well, recognizing that I'm a very detached observer and therefore my criticisms may be unjustified, however:
 
1) By pursuing a car at high speeds, the police can cause more fatalities, injuries and damage. This was an issue in CA about 20 years ago and they passed laws that police were not to engage in high speed pursuits. (IIRC)
 
2) And they couldn't have blown out the tires or taken some other action? They couldn't have aimed just at the driver?
 
Maybe they tried, as 80 or so of the 137 bullets did not apparently hit the driver or passenger. In any case, it smells of police not reigning in their own (understandable) rage, so it seems to me that the cops are as criminally negligent here as the driver.
 
But like I said, I wasn't there, I certainly don't know all the facts, and I realize that I have an opinion that isn't necessarily even valid, sitting here in a warm house in NY.
