Videos show Tacoma police cruiser striking pedestrians

A video which was posted on social media and which subsequently went viral shows a Tacoma, Wash., police cruiser plowing into a group of pedestrians. Two pedestrians were hospitalized, and the police department has turned the investigation over to the Pierce County Force Investigation Team (PCFIT). While one of the patients has been released, the condition of the other remains ’unknown.’

The speed of the cop's acceleration could be critiqued, but I have little sympathy for people blocking/beating on a cop car facing repercussions for such blatantly risky behavior.

Horrific as the video is, you don't block an emergency vehicle with it's lights and sirens on. You get out of the way so they can go save lives. If you block them you are potentially preventing them from saving another person's life and that is the most selfish act I can imagine. If you suffer physical damage as a result of that selfish decision then I'm sorry, but I don't feel sympathy for you.

I watched the video. The right reread tire does a slow roll over someone's ribcage. I imagine there will be tremendous and perhaps lifelong damage to that person. But for the love of everything holy, do not attempt to block a vehicle with your body, if you are for some reason obsessed with the idea of destroying your own body, you'd have a better time hand braking a whirling chainsaw blade or having trains gender surgery.

I lived in the Seattle area for 6 years. Cops running over pedestrians happened about twice a week. They now have do not pursue laws because of all the people getting hit. This area is extremely hilly, wet with allot of turns, and allot of areas have lack of view for high speed pursuits. Then there is I-5 one bad wreck can put most of the state in bad gridlock for hours.

What is shocking about this?..if you surround a car, any car, and start beating on it this will probably happen..I'd have done the exact same thing if I was the driver
