With the nummerous adw's, t/a's she should have been taken out a lot sooner. The unit had already been wrecked, don't they know what a pick is or use spike strips, or where they waiting fo supervisor approval? She nearly killed two people. It should not have been allowed to go on as long as it did. They were just lucky no one was killed.

Right after this person intentional hit a ped it would have and should have been deadly force. Police car in front after chase started should have used a shotgun.............end of chase.

Correct deadly force should have been used once the suspect intentionaly struck someone with the unit.

Looked like her head may have hit the utility pole upon the take down. Hope the pole didn't get damaged...

Camden should invest in "Stop Sticks" and some PIT training.

Fairly decent driving, for a chick.

YES TOO LONG. Granted she was moving and weaving, SO spikes would have been hard to do. However, 1. where was the back up?? I see one car in pursuit most of the time. 2. why did they not hit n tap her to spin her out ??? They did not worry about handling here after she abandoned the vehicle!!
