Yes, I agree.. Dont run from the law, there wont be any problems.. But I dont see why the ""Law"" Needs to drive like that when chasing someone on a bike.. Ard almost hit a telephone pole in that vid, jerked the car around a corner.. Well really (2)...Then ran over the kid..

Seriously!!!!!!! I'm sure the young man was delivering paper's right??? I'm not one to defend the "man", but it was apparent that thedeputy gave lots of opportunities to stop, and the thug ran and continued to try to get away. The end result was tragic for all involved, but the officer was doing his part! Cudos for once to ECSO!!

On a good note, one less POS to support in the POKIE!!

well let me see, your in brownsville, its the middle of the night, a teenage thug seesyou on patrol, acts guilty and tries to elude you before you even start a pursuit. so instead of just shrugging your shoulders and going to the local donut shop you decide that you want to do your job and try and keep the streets clean for the good folks.

maybe he should have parked the car and tried to run him down on foot? NOT

when the punk decided to run he was the one who was endangering the public not the cop. the family will sue, maybe instead of just paying there should be a counter suit.

guess some may not have ever been over 35 mph before, but to me it seemed like a controlled chase. the reason the punk got ran over was because he fell in front of the officers car, not because he was trying to run him down. lets send a message to the punks that are still alive that it is ok to run. if you want to play your gonnapay.

If this had been a white kid, the media would have buried the story months ago. It isn't racial profiling, it's the fact that some are just to stupid to stop when told to. If itacts like a duck (criminal) and runs like duck (criminal) then it probably is a duck (criminal)

I was so pissed at them trying to charge "Officer Ard" I joined facebook, justso I could leave a comment on WEAR TV (Liberal Bastards) website. Here we go with "<U>the race card</U>" again! If he was not "African American" I don't think you would see all this and Child Services would probaly have arrested the parent's for child neglect! Of course this is just "MY" opinion!

Trophy05 (2/26/2010)Does anybody else notice that what actually happened on video is not the same story the fine witnesses at sluggos gave?
LOL +1000
Also this fine establishment has been given a Image Makeover to suite the need. It was the Eatery Patrons that gave the accounting, NOT the Nightclub patrons.:doh................

Yea the clicking sound was officer ard attempting to tase him out the window.

At the time there was no policy in place againstusing a taser out the window.

There was a .308 pistol found invictor steen's pocket closest to where his body could be accessedunder the police crusier.

family and friends say pistol was planted on him...

problem is - there were bullets in another pocket that could not be reached way up under the center of the car.

Either way i am sure the "spin" on this will be the kid just ran from the police cause he is "scared" of the police and he carried a pistol cause he was "scared" too:doh- after all he was in brownsville at 2 a.m. in the morning.

Bottom lineit was a tragic accident that occurred because victortried to run from the police

and the bleeding heart liberals and media will throw the officer through the mud several times over becasue the other guy was a "minority"...i dont understand how only white people are the racists and bigots....if it was the other way around where the officer was black and the guy was white...it would have maybe been on the news 1 day then nothing else about it...but the black kids family said he was a good kid and never in trouble...if you have done nothing wrong and have no warrants out for you then why run and catch a charge??? i know i have been stopped by police and have never ran because i know i wasnt in the wrong so no need to run

Don't you know he was a deaf kid getting an early start on his paper route so he could save up money for his mama's operation?



Seriously, its tragic that he died, but like said before. Don't run from the police. If he was a "good kid, never in trouble" he wouldn't be running.

The coroners report showed no signs of the taser latching onto the boy. To me, the chase did seem controlled. You can see form the dash cam and if you've ever driven in that area at 2 am that there aren't very many cars on the road and i'm sure the officer had control. Like others said, don't run from the law and you won't get ran over accidental or not. I applaud the officer in question. I bet it would be a whole different story for Steen family if their perfect little angel was caught an hour later after he had probably robbed or shot someone. Don't run, won't be no problem....:usaflag
