Sadly, Another Point Proven

It usually takes more than 24 hours for a point to be proven.  Not today.  As noted yesterday in my analysis of the SCOTUS Scott v. Harris decision, giving cops carte blanche in high speed chases was tantamount to a license to kill.  That very same day, a high speed chase in Queens to stop a car thief (let’s assume guilt for the sake of argument) resulted in a bus full of children to overturn as reported in Newsday.

Thankfully, no child died.  Was it worth it to catch a car thief?  In the big trade-off, how many children’s lives are worth the arrest of one car thief?  Hey SCOTUS, are you listening?
