Comments

As a retired police officer, "People shouldn't run from the cops."  It is stupid and not only puts themselves in danger but threatens the lives of citizens who aren't aware someone is running from the law.  Not even mentioning the jeopardy people put cops in trying to enforce the law.

A sidebar to the above.  In 12 years of stopping suspected drunk drivers, (usually at the time this woman ran from the cops) I  arrested 425 DUI'S who were over the alcohol limit, sometime by as much as 300%.
