Boy Who Fired Bottle Rockets Into Traffic Killed While Fleeing Angry Driver
POSTED: 3:36 pm EDT July 15, 2005
The death came soon after midnight in this small town south of
A car stopped, and passenger Tyrone Sherrod got out, chased the cousin and started beating him, Alexander said. The driver, Mario N. Haley, chased the other boy, who ran onto the highway and was struck by a car driven by a 17-year-old girl.
Both men fled, but police found them at homes. Investigators determined the girl was not at fault.
Witnesses unsuccessfully tried to revive the boy struck by the car. His cousin was treated for injuries and released to his parents.
This is why I tell very angry people, enraged for one slight or another, to NOT CHASE BAD GUYS.
There’s two kinds of liability as the chaser: a) the liability of chasing the bad guy into, oh I don’t know, TRAFFIC and getting them killed; and b) the liability of chasing them into a corner and having them fight you and one of you getting seriously hurt, often the chaser.
Remember that when you call 911 I become responsible to try and protect your angry stupid ass.
Such a waste.
