VIDEO: Ohio Pursuit Leads To Fatal OIS

A grand jury has cleared a Coshocton County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputy who used deadly force when a suspect charged him with a pickup truck following a pursuit, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

The exoneration came after a two-month investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation of Deputy Ernest Snyder's fatal shooting of David Stahl, 20 on March 26.

Dash-cam video released Tuesday shows the officer-involved shooting and tail end of the pursuit in which Stahl rammed one deputy's cruiser and accelerated his pickup truck toward Deputy Snyder, who sidestepped the vehicle and fired into the driver's side window.

The 27-minute pursuit began when Stahl refused to stop for New Concord Police Officer Jeremy Downing. Stahl attempted to flee officers along Route 83 at speeds of up to 80 mph, reports CentralOhio.com.

The two Coshocton County Sheriff's units quickly spotted Stahl's pickup when he entered the county from Muskingum County. The shooting occurred at about 10:30 p.m.

Screw that POS, Blue/Red lights mean STOP. Plain and simple. If some sack of s**t keeps going 500 Feet after the lights go on, you should be able to take him out. Drug dealers, gang bangers, sex offenders and other subhumans serve no useful purpose in a well-ordered society. Just dig one big ditch and line 'em up, ask if they have any last words and then blow their brains out.
