      Scary thought.

        Even scarier was the Mass legislature, after a long day (midnite?), sent out for pizza and instructed their page boys to go to their offices and raid their private bars.  By 3am they were yelling ‘TOGA TOGA’ on the senate floor!   This was 10-15 years ago, no reports of a repeat and they did have a hard day, but still….   :)

      and taxpayers pay for all of this. The police car and to house this guy.

         I’d rather have to use taxpayer’s dollars for a new cruiser, than to have him go into a busy street and possibly kill someone while driving drunk. Just my thought though…

          1st time is only 48 hours.. don’t mention any priors, but  he was arrested a few weeks ago on something else.

    Pretty risky maneuver, Trooper. Nice job.

      Ah, yes! The good old PIT maneuver (Pursuit Intervention Technique) that’s so much fun to watch on ‘Cops’!

      Well Trooper kinda dumb trying to stop a 2500 pound car! Cops have a lot of power but not that much lol

    Here’s the headline for this story in a real newspaper:

    “Cowboy cop lassos bad guy but costs taxpayers”

    They knew who this guy is, so why not wait till he stops and then arrest him?  I’m real tired of paying for police cars (which partial cost comes from gas tax money)

      How about thanks to Trooper Paquette the headline doesn’t read “Mother and 2 children killed in crash by drink driver fleeing police.” Did you miss the part of article where it was stated that the suspect crossed into the oncoming lane and hit a snowbank as he was approaching a busy intersection? This officer put his own safety and well being at risk in an effort to prevent a worse accident. If YOUR wife and kids had been driving nearby, you might feel differently about what the costs are. A cruiser can be replaced.  A human life cannot.

        Drunks speed up when being chased.  Most cops join up for the action.  Speed lights, power every teenagers dream.

        Please DON’T do me any favors!

    If the smart Maine criminal justice consumer had a volunteer civilian review police board with subpoena powers you would have civilian control over the criminal justice system you fund and own.
    The smart consumer would have set standards in place for high speed chases and would have the ability to discipline anyone including firing for violations.
