Many of you guys are looking at this the wrong way. Should officers be able to use FORCE in an attempt to prevent a suspect from escaping? Yes. Should officers be able to use DEADLY FORCE to prevent the substaintal risk of death or serious bodily injury to others? Yes. However, we shouldn't give blanket checks to police to say "yes, you can shoot at cars trying to flee." What about the passengers? What about the other cars on the road? If police are more of a danger to others than the person they are trying to arrest then they need to stop doing what they are doing...PERIOD. Even if it means the guy gets away or even if it means they've got to call in other agencies to take the lead (crossing county/state lines, etc.). This isn't a cut and dry answer...anytime an officer uses force (especially deadly force) they better have a good justification for it and used it in a manner that didn't endanger innocent people. Having a CCW doesn't make you a "good guy" any more than having a gun makes you a "bad guy".
