Crackdown needed on running from law

I have been tossing it around in my mind. What is the difference between aiming a gun at somebody and aiming a car?

Aiming a gun means you have a target. Unless you are in an isolated area, a person would not have a clue what or whom is in the other vehicle. There could be men, women, children or even animals in the other vehicle -- or maybe even a combination of all of the above.

Every day, someone runs from the law and while most of the time it concerns drugs, sometimes it is as simple as no driver's license. When someone uses a vehicle to escape from the law, they are putting everyone in their path at risk.

A separate charge of attempted murder for every victim involved would slow this down.

An excellent suggestion. Would you also apply it to Speeders?

The city of Houston, Texas had a policy many years ago that criminals who ran from the police were killed. Period. After a while, and a few examples, people didn't run. Period.

If that statement were provable in a Court of Law, there would be a whole bunch of folks up on Murder Conspiracy charges and law suits galore? No Law Enforcement Agency would ever be dumb enough to make a statement like that.
