Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

Wow, was shooting her to death really necessary?

Poor baby. I think 18-months is old enough to absorb a lot. Hope she turns out ok.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

Race of driver and relationship to child in car confirmed.

QUOTE:
(04-10) 17:15 PDT Santa Ana, Calif. (AP) --

A woman was shot to death by a police officer early Friday after slamming her car into a patrol car and leading officers on a high-speed chase with her 1-year-old daughter in the back seat of her car.

Susie Young Kim, 37, of Irvine was found slumped over the wheel of the car and her daughter was unharmed and taken into protective custody at a children's home, police said.

"We don't know what led the officer to shoot," Santa Ana police Cmdr. Tammy Franks said. "I have no reason to believe he knew she had a child in the car."

The chase began just after 12:30 a.m. when an officer tried to stop the car because he suspected the driver might be drunk, Buena Park police Sgt. Bill Kohanek said.

Instead, officers ended up trailing Kim's Toyota sedan through Buena Park, Anaheim, Fullerton, Tustin and Santa Ana, reaching speeds of up to 110 mph on the southbound Interstate 5 in a chase that lasted 30 minutes, Franks said.

Kim rammed two police cars in Tustin when police tried to trap the car with a maneuver, Kohanek said. An officer saw a child's car seat in the back of her car and told their colleagues over the emergency radio, but Kohanek added that sometimes officers miss radio transmissions.

The district attorney's office was investigating.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

they've said that she rammed two police cars, and they haven't said why the cop opened fire. so i assume it is not standard protocol to shoot at drivers that are ramming police cars?

There was just a high speed chase on the news last night involving a crazed middle age white dude that ended with it ramming into three police cars, with the police ripping this fat white dude through the car window. It was actually kind of hilarious.

So I'm assuming it's not standard protocol to just shoot.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

high speed chases here in l.a. are pretty standard, and shooting the driver, especially shooting to kill, is a rarity. also the footage of the chase is almost always RELEASED AND BROADCASTED. where is it in this case?? it's been 2 days and we still don't have any answers.

how come the cop couldn't have shot the tires?

i'm kinda providing updates on my twitter acct, though there really aren't many new developments in the case since it appears they still digging hard for a justification that sounds acceptable.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

Wait, so the woman did initially stop when pulled over by police on suspicions of the woman being intoxicated and driving erratically, before she sped off, and was practically executed as a result according to the link in the OP. I would like to know what happened initially when she did pull over before she sped off leading to a high speed chase. What went wrong during that fragment of time? Because it seems to me (according to the news report) that she did at first had every intent to cooperate with law enforcement authorities before the high speed chase before the woman was shot to death.

Why?!!

What's up with law enforcement in Cali these days anyway? Yeah, we have it bad here in NY but not to the severity we see here with police brutality in Cali in recent years.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

here's another point to consider:

they have her body. if they smelled alcohol on her breath (while removing her body) or if they had anything indicating that she was driving under the influence, they would have disclosed it by now. blood test results? anything. right now they're really reaching by having to talk about "traffic violations" and her "possibly under the influence" - all very vague, non-descriptive, like they don't want to tie themselves to a story til they all agree that it'll be the right one to use.

time's ticking cops and we're watching.

this is exactly what is going thru my mind.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

Yeah off topic but I was talking with a couple of Asian immigrants in my hood a minute ago over the incident and they literally said they don't give a fuck about it. As an APA I just can't believe the fucked up attitudes I hear sometimes. Shit is sad.

Re: asian woman shot to death after high-speed police chase; baby on board

yeah sounds like they're trying to come up with a good reason for the shooting. does anybody know if there actually exists protocol to shoot a driver? or, to shoot a driver that is not shooting at the cops?
