Let’s see here:  19 year old leads cops on two county chase, with speeds in excess of 100 mph.  Cops finally bump car, causing it to crash.  Felonious driver, in a classic case of natural consequences, is paralyzed from the neck down.  Driver then sues cops, claiming excess use of force.  In a stunning act of idiocy, the appellate courts support this decision.  But then the SCOTUS shoots it down with an attack of common sense, by an 8-1 vote.

Glaringly obvious decision, yet John Paul Stevens has his head up his butt, claiming that there was no imminent danger to bystanders.

Like Hades.  100 mph chase?  The alternative is to wait until someone gets hurt, and then it’s too late.  In this case, the right person got hurt.  Not that we want to aim for paraplegia as a sentence for berserk driving, but at least no one else got hurt.
