            Someone posted : As for the chase...sounds to me like that pursuit should have been terminated. The suspect was known and the risk he posed fleeing at such speeds did not justify an ongoing pursuit IMHO.

            Just let em' go. That's a great idea. You should be in the DA's office.
            Just flee criminals. You wouldn't want to get caught with the drugs, guns, or the corpse you have in your car. Just go really fast and the cops won't follow--the pu$$ies. Then you can get rid of the evidence.

            They knew who he was, but he could have been on his way to do all kinds of bad stuff. Maybe even to you or someone you love. Just let em' go.... Then you would probably be the jerk who would sue the police department saying "Why didn't you get him while you had the chance!"

            NoObama, the story was in last weeks' paper. It was nicely done and illustrated the value of armed citizen involvement.

            Send him my way, I have a .30 cal resolution to his "chronic " suffering. That's about 50 cents worth, pretty good investment, I say! Oh, and no need for burial, there are lots of wolves and grizzlies who need good rotting flesh to feed upon.

            i think its great that the majority of the public's opinion of the flathead county DA's office is negative,in the the way these violent offenders run free in the county with nothing but probation around their neck,its about time we clean out all the limp wrist prosecutors and get someone who goes by the letter of the law,i've been in one city court in columbia falls,don't have the money,you're going to jail,screw up in justice court,you're going to prison,not likely,

            Probation. For life. And when he screws that up change it to two life terms of probation. That'll teach him. I hope all you other miscreant druggies and thieves are paying attention. LOL. As if.

            the county attorney will probably reduce all charges and the judge will release him on probation, being caught is punishment enough, I have no faith in the so called justice system in Flathead county
