This is all because of the selfish actions of the drive of that vehicle. The drive should be charged with Att. Murder? Serious reckless assault? Reckless endangerment? There was no reason for the driver to leave the traffic stop like they did. It didn’t look like the officers completed the stop and released the driver. Maybe additional charges of resisting arrest for the vehicle and traffic law charges.
Unfortunately the common and routine narrative is to get rid of police enforcement of traffic laws and incidents like this would never occur. It is a fallacy to think that police stops cause the actions of drivers to speed off and hurt people. The focus should be on the actions and behaviors of the driver or offenders. It’s their decisions that result in the crimes they commit which they get stopped and arrested for.
This was a terrible event. This has nothing to do with police making traffic stops. It has everything to do with people who think there is no repercussions for not obeying police officer orders.

Community Perception of Political Bias: Are PPB’s policies, culture, actions, or outcomes driven by political bias? If so, what is the extent of any political bias, what are the root causes of any political bias, and what are the best practices to address those root causes?
Community Perception that PPB is Resistant to Change: Are PPB’s policies, culture, actions, or outcomes resistant to change sought by the community? If so, what is the extent of this resistance, what are the root causes of this resistance, and what are the best practices to address that resistance?www.oirgroup.com/_files/ugd/c0d762_16aaa9fa1dfa4b0b87a74352fe5d520c.pdf
Police violence has a long history in the United States and remains a pervasive problem to this day. As recent research by Human Rights Watch has shown, it is inextricably linked to deep and persisting racial inequities and economic class divisions. For reform efforts to be meaningful and effective, they need to address those societal conditions.
