Blame misplaced

Candy Priano's pain cannot be felt by any of the readers. We can only offer condolences. But ending police pursuit of criminals will not solve the problems of our society. The criminal that stole the car is responsible.

Joe Burnett

"Absolutely, the person who chooses to flee from the police is to blame. It is his/her primary responsibility to stop for the police. These are serious criminals who should be put in prison. BUT, knowing that some people will flee, the police have the responsibility to act in a way that protects us — the public."

Geoffrey Alpert, an international expert on police violence and pursuit driving
