15-Year-Old Driving Stolen Car Killed In Pursuit
September 17, 2012
A 15-year-old Michigan teenager crashed a stolen car after eluding an officer with stop sticks and died at the scene in Niles.
Officers with the Niles Police Department initiated the pursuit after a homeowner called 911 to report that he heard his truck start and saw it driving down the street at 8:15 a.m. on Sept. 9.
The driver, later identified as 15-year-old Jazmyne Rodriguez, ignored the officers attempts to pull her over, instead accellerating and blowing several stop signs. One officer reached speeds of 85 mph, reports MLive.com.

I suppose now some a**hole is going to blame this on the cops too. The cops should have know it was only a 15 year old girl driving and just let her get away. Sorry to say whatever the age they get what they deserve if they run and crash. She made the decision to run not the police.

@Marshal - more importantly, she made the decision to steal a car and break the law. Several laws. It's no one's fault but her own.
But you're right, I'm sure we'll hear another story about some ridiculous lawsuit, or something equally as inane.
And we'll surely hear in this thread the people on the suspect's side, ranting just as you have predicted they will.

The owner of the vehicle should sue her parents for the value of the stolen vehicle, she had no right to steal it and her life of crime ended before she could do more harm, I'm glad that no officers were killed or injured.
