(Via LC & IB Ace)

A criminal who, while barreling down the street at speeds in excess of 100mph trying to escape police, was rammed by police in order to stop him from wiping out an untold number of civilians, was told to go cry the Supreme Court a river about his injuries:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday gave police officers significant protection from lawsuits by suspects who lead them on car chases.

The justices ruled 8-1 against Georgia teenager Victor Harris, who was left a quadriplegic after a police vehicle rammed his car off the road in 2001.

A police officer used “reasonable force” when ramming the teen’s speeding car, the high court ruled. A videotape of the pursuit played a key role in the decision.

“The car chase that [Harris] initiated in this case posed substantial and immediate risk of serious physical injury to others,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the majority. “[Deputy Timothy] Scott’s attempt to terminate the chase by forcing [Harris] off the road was reasonable.”

“8 to 1?”, I hear you say, “who was the clinically insane, doddering old fool in black robes insisting that the goblin was entitled to compensation for the police interfering with him piloting a lethal weapon down crowded streets at 100mph?”

As if you needed to ask:

The lone dissenter was Justice John Paul Stevens, who made his views known in a rare oral summary during Monday’s public session. He said the other justices got carried away by the tape.

Still think that Ann Coulter’s joke about rat poison and creme brulee was “over the top?”

Well, you’re certainly entitled to that opinion.

    Just read that one - idiots.

    Run from the cops (into a store parking lot), smack a squad car, try to keep running - and then try to sue when it turns out badly for you?

    (admittedly quite badly - kid’s a quad now)

    One more attempt at “It’s not my fault!!”

    Idiots.

    Of course the fact of the matter is that any criminal during the commission of a crime or trying to escape has no right to sue for any compensation from the state or citizen.

    There is no right to commit crimes! There should be no profiting from them either!

    and then try to sue when it turns out badly for you?

    Could have ended even worse for him, it could have killed him.

    But then we might have had to deal with his family.

    Worse than being paraplegic? I’d say that, in his case, the punishment fit the crime — perfectly.

    I agree, Emperor Misha I.

    Paralyzed from the neck down. He ain’t going nowhere, and he ain’t going to be committing any crimes in the near future. Let him sit and think about his reckless behavior for, I don’t know, THE REST OF HIS LIFE!

    BTW, did he get a Darwin Award? Maybe we could cheer him up by nominating him? :lol_wp:

    There was just a story on the local news about this. Some gomered up chick in a wheelchair that was the only survivor in a car chase that started when they ran a stop sign last Sept.

    She was whining about how she hopes this doesn’t affect her case to sue the local P.D. for damages, pain and suffering, yadda, yadda, and blahblahblah.

    (not an exact quote)“If I could just get the money, I could go to St. Louis 3 times a week and he said he could get me to parapalegic… All we did was run a stop sign. There wasn’t even any cars coming…”

    According to the talking head, speeds reached 100+ down crooked-ass country roads. It’s a good thing that only the oxygen thieves were hurt/killed. Ignorant bitch could be walking and collecting welfare checks for her meth babies if she had only STOPPED at the STOP sign… (What a novel concept…)

    Sow got what she deserved…

    All we did was run a stop sign. There wasn’t even any cars coming…”

    Well, if that’s all it was, then why the fuck didn’t you pull over when told to do so, you imbecilic poster sow for retroactive abortion?

    And what the FUCK does that have to do with you and your fellow morons risking the lives of numerous innocent bystanders by driving a couple thousand pounds of steel down the roads at breakneck speeds?

    What? “It was only a traffic ticket?” Oh, so I suppose that as long as the crime doesn’t meet your personal exacting standards for what’s “serious enough to merit pulling over”, you’re free to ignore the law?

    Enjoy the rest of your miserable, empty, wheelchair-bound life, you filthy cow, and know that my best childhood buddy lost both of his parents thanks to a stop sign-running fuckhead like yourself, so if you’re looking for empathy and understanding, you’re flapping your stanky labia superiores in the wrong fucking face!

    “Carried away by the tape” Oh hell no he didn’t just say that.

    He did.

    Mr. Stevens, you’ve had 6 YEARS to ponder this. I think the 8 others have since settled down considerably in their “rush” to judgement (according to you) on this one. Sorry pal, you got your ass on a plate this time.

    You aint kiddin’.
    Ya gotta respect their grief, but I feel no duty to suffer the grief m’self.
    Who’s decision was it all anyhoo?

    My buddy’s sportster’s headlight started goin’ dim on the proverbial state road just past town, he stopped to call his ol’ lady at the last phonebooth (remember phone booths?)to tell her where to look for him if he wasn’t home in a few, hung up, and was told to “give it up!”
    He said “no prob,,BLAM!” One shot. Thug down. You can make fun of .380’s, but at six feet away, they work ok.

    My point: The news showed, the young mother screamin’ with a baby in her arms, “He didn’t have to kill my man, he was a good provider!”
    (headslap)
    Yeah, the family.

    I completely agree with the courts decision on this case, but I’m wondering how long it will be before a similar case arises where the injured person is someone who was hurt due to chase taking place.
    The argument will be that person x can sue the police because by chasing criminal y they caused the accident which resulted in the death/injury of person z

    The Senate can impeach judges … Jefferson and Burr used the process to fire every last Federalist judge Hamilton installed during Washington’s presidency.

    The tools are there … we just need a two-thirds majority … or a 51% majority + nuclear option.
