It’s hard to make a rational decision either way since there is very little information available at this point. Why the chase for 7 miles? Was the suspect actively trying to evade or was this a slow drive. Why didn’t the driver notice the lights? We all know officers go into hyper-aggressive mode when they perceive a flight threat which could have been in the eyes of the officer, thus significantly increasing the risk of a shooting. My general belief is that unless there is a firearm involved and pointed at an officer (generally speaking and real firearms) that all officer shootings are unnecessary. What drives me insane are the amount of OIS that involve edge weapons, rocks, sticks, etc. While suspects carrying these types of weapons are routinely subdued without deadly force in other westernized nations, particularly the UK and Scotland, any of the aforementioned weapons will get you shot and likely killed here. It highlights the problem with hyper-vigilence the discretion that we give officers today. It’s far easier to draw a firearm and claim “I feared for my life” than expose oneself to any type of risk.
