    That’s right, send the car thieves to the best hospital in town to get the best care possible, before they go to rot in jail, hopefully. Idiots.

    I wonder what race the suspects were and what race the cops were?? Hmmm I guess it doesn’t really matter, the cops didn’t shoot anyone.

    May God be with the family through these trying times. Those who caused the deaths should serve the hard time through the book at them.

    Unfortunately, this incident will further the cause for our liberal Mayor to prohibit chasing criminals in a vehicle. Now they get free healthcare just to be cut loose from our judicial system with a minimal sentence if they are first time offenders. They’ll be out of jail in no time and move on to terrorize our communities another day.

      According to article, MPD was not involved in a pursuit related to this. They likely terminated, yet the criminals still continued on and killed two innocent people, shame.

    man, I saw the picture of the victims car and thought that was the stolen vehicle and thought to myself ‘good riddance’. Now knowing it was two innocent people in what was left of their car just makes me so angry. The wrong people died in this accident…. say what you will, but it’s true. Prayers to the victims family.

    Hopefully the two in the stolen vehicle die from their injuries. They obviously don’t value human life and should not be rewarded with a life of their own. RIP to the people they killed unless we find out later they were connected to a robbery or homicide then i guess karma was busy today.

    This would be punished by death in a foreign country. They should be executed norf korean style, death by dog eating them alive.
