http://reason.com/blog/2014/05/27/supreme-court-rules-in-favor-of-police-w The court decided that it is OK for police to use deadly force to stop vehicle pursuits. Their decision reversed a ruling from the 6th Circuit, after an incident in Arkansas in which police fired 15 rounds into a fleeing vehicle, killing the driver and the passenger, neither of whom were armed. While it's certainly understandable that the vehicle itself can be used as a weapon - it frightens me that the court is OK with this - as it's not just the driver of the vehicle they are using deadly force against. An unarmed passenger has a target on their back if the driver of the vehicle they are in flees from the police, and the police decide to use deadly force to stop it. I think this is a dangerous precedent, and I fear that this decision was largely made to cover the collective bubblegum of the government and it's agents should some of them start popping off rounds at people who don't stop for them at checkpoints - not just those actively fleeing in a vehicle. Not to sound too tinfoily - but the idea of Due Process goes out the window with this decision, at least for everyone in the car but the driver.
