Alright so obviously this guy did not give two shits he was being chased by the police, nor did he have any concern for the safety of others. I don’t understand why they didn’t take a shot from the helicopter, just do the world a favor and kill him early on? Sure that particular helicopter may not have had someone riding shotgun to do that, but when a chase goes on for that long and is that dangerous why didn’t they send another helicopter with a sharpshooter to take care of it? People shoot wild hogs from the air with ease and they are quick… I don’t see how shooting this guy would have been any harder considering all the chances they had. I know some of you are going to say “BUT MIKE HE HAS THE RIGHT TO A FAIR TRIAL. 6th Amendment bRo, look it up”. Sure, but doesn’t the right to live your life without the worry of being killed by a criminal scumbag trump the right he has to a trial?
