      A TOW missile would have stopped the chase.

    Even Bakersfield news is not showing anything about this chase that is on their doorstep. Though that is not surprizing cause they ignore that area of the county, but still

    How long until the police adopt an engine enabling device. What will it take? An important political figure to be killed. Snipers should be placed and head shots taken.

      Great idea!!
      Install one of those devices on every car in the state. AT THE OWNERS EXPENSE
      How long will it be before somebody hacks in the the system and disables hundreds of cars at once.
