He did nothing wrong. But there is nothing to say that the accident wouldn't have happened even if the police weren't chasing.
That's why there should be an investigation into the incident to determine whether the police pursuit contributed to the crash, as it's entirely possible that without pursuit the incident wouldn't have occurred.
But seeing as they were, and the accident did happen, it is still the fault of the original criminal.
Not if the police could have used other means to apprehend the suspect without putting the public at risk. The police have access to helicopters and they can radio ahead to set-up roadblocks or to divert the suspect onto quieter roads where there is less risk to the public. There are countless other ways to deal with such crimes.
He had to be sent to the hospital, for the actions of Adams.
And if the police pursuit contributed to the crash then the police are also responsible.
So police should let any criminal who drives away from a crime get away?
The police should determine the best way to apprehend the suspect with minimal risk to the public. If there is significant risk to the public in a police pursuit then yes, it should be avoided but that doesn't mean the suspect should be allowed to get away. Surprisingly enough there are other methods of policing than high speed pursuits.
All I'm saying is that every incident like this should be investigated to ensure that the general public was not put at undue risk and that the police officers acted appropriately. The police need to be held accountable for their actions. I'm not saying the police even did anything wrong, just that it should be investigated to ensure they did not.
