A Florida cop used a PIT maneuver (as pictured) to force a woman off the road causing her SUV to flip, the woman was driving 57 in a 55 mph zone and allegedly failed to immediately respond once the cop turned on his siren. The woman was using cruise control to maintain her speed at 55 MPH, the cop himself says after she failed to respond he tracked her going a "consistent 57 mph," yet he decided to use the dangerous maneuver nonetheless, which is drawing serious criticism. Amazingly, the police say the officer's actions were "acceptable," and the cop is facing zero punishment.

Aggressive traffic stop - which caused accident - needs greater scrutinyRead the full article here.
Can you imagine if this became the new normal? Cops ramming you off the road for minor infractions? This case reminds me of the story out of Texas a month ago where Texas police had a sniper in a helicopter shoot at a vehicle because it had a "covered truck bed" which they thought was suspicious and "may have" been used to smuggle drugs, the police in that case also deemed their actions "justified" because the driver failed to respond. It turns out there was no drugs in the car, but there was some illegal immigrants, they killed two of them and sent another to the hospital, as I said at the time, "Welcome to America."
