Between a Rock And a Hard Place...
Tell me please, what are police supposed to do? They are in a "Catch-22" situation.
State Coroner Michael Barnes and, no doubt, O'Gorman and his maudlin band of merrymen would have it that police cease and desist from pursuits.
Oh..well...the police should just sit tight in their cars when they recognise a stolen vehicle or someone high-tails it when requested to pull over by the police...they should just switch on the car radio, listen to some music and sip on a mug of coffee! Sure...then the do-gooders would be jumping up and down in apoplectic fits, tearing their hair out, bemoaning the fact that police are sitting in their cars sipping on coffee when a stolen vehicle or criminal is recognised!
It's hard to win these day, isn't it?
Sure...it's a tragedy when an innocent 13 year old girl is killed by an unlicensed, most probably drug-fuelled idiot who was trying to escape police capture, but the police can't just turn a blind eye!
