I am really tired of people who think they have the world figured out and their view is the only "correct" view.
So now that I am in the rabbit hole, let's look at your original response...where you couldn't give "two halves of a whole rat's ass" if someone was injured from the chase. Really?!...only a total ******* who only cares about himself would say that. Then you say, hey it's not fast cars that are the problem it is alcohol...when in the end it is ALWAYS people and usually irresponsible people at that.
You refer to individual freedom but why is it that individual freedom always seems to involve the ability to have the freedom to do wrong and a wrong that can cost lives? What is so terrible about police having the ability to shutdown a vehicle when it is being operated at triple digit speeds, which is against the law on every road in the US? It's better than throwing out a role of spikes or performing a PIT maneuver to bring a vehicle to a stop in a very violent manner. We are not talking about some guy doing some spirited driving on the highway but a thief that stole property who is running from justice and does not care if he injures or kills someone doing it. Giving up individual freedom...give me a break.
I was trying to make a point.
1. I do care, I don't want anyone hurt, but I'm not willing to live in the tyranny of the stupid and having my liberties slowly chipped away every time some asshat breaks the rules. I may as well off myself now if that's going to be the case.
2. I'm not a prohibitionist, I enjoy my fair share of beer. Again, just trying to make a point.
3. What's wrong with it is the ability to misuse it, and what's sad with it is that you're more willing to let the government turn off your car whenever they feel like it, than give up drink.
Right and wrong is highly subjective, we could both agree a car thief driving triple digits down a populate highway deserves to be hung from the neck until dead, but someone will eventually come along and move the goal post on you. Suddenly, merely owning the car is grounds for punishment, so the government turns it off for you and takes it away at gun point.
Good luck, friend, don't fall down the slippery slope.
