Heroes die young and this case proves it. Thank god no uninvolved people were hurt because of this criminal activity and the over zealous police response.

Damn shame, and if the officer was wearing a seatbelt things may have ended different. Tragic.

i think this is very said but the officer contributed to his own death... he chased them becuz they attempted didnt even succeed in a purse snatching.. there are 4 reasons y someone shud go on a high speed chase and this is not one.. also he was not wearing a seat belt knowing that is a requirement in law.. this is sad and horrible and they shud go to jail but not for his death..

charge them with the officers death, the otehr officers injuries of course then cut their heads off, being a democratic state we need to do it in a green way, so guillotine would be the proper way, it needs no electricy, you never even have to sharpen it. change the rope every couple years that is it

(@concerned citizen of Laurel) I always thought that should be taking in consideration the fact that you as a human only get to live one life and someone else takes a life and they are found guilty why are they still alive? Then people want to complain about prisons being overcrowded if you kill someone your life should be taken not only would it help create more space in the prison but I'm pretty sure it would decrease the crime rate
