    You never know how you will respond in an emergency situation until one faces you. Most people do nothing except freeze in their tracks. Kudos to the OP, he didn't break any laws. Falls into the good samaritan category for me, and I probably would've done the same thing.
    Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.

    I'm getting tired of the attitude in this country that for some reason no one should ever get involved.
    I have an issue that he did this with his family in the truck with him. For all he knew, the mustang driver could have been armed.
    I file this one under reckless endangerment. The smart decision in all of this was to break off pursuit.

    On a side note, the original post was beginning to read like an adventure story about a guy who needed an excuse to burn rubber. Just my opinion, for what it is worth.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    Does not mean that common sense and safety of family should be tossed out the window.

    Nick: You did good. Some of your detracters here must be legends in their own mind or off their meds.

    Your child does not have a choice when you take reckless action. There are so many things that could have gone wrong it is not even funny. OP is lucky that he didn't hit someone or she didn't hit someone else running from him. Most departments won't even engage in pursuits anymore and the ones that do invest in hours of training for their officers to do so. Good men do not put their 7 month old children in harms way, justify it however you want.

    again i dont feel as though i was putting my family at harm in any way. thats why the pursuit stopped when it did. and im sure you would want someone to pursue the person the just ran over your wife, daughter, niece or whatever, if you could not. i know i would.
    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    I dunno. Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20. Lots of Monday morning quarterbacks. If that was my daughter laying on the sidewalk I would have been grateful for all those that came to her aid and for Nick making an attempt to keep the felon in sight.
