IT SEEMED LIKE A LEGITIMATE CHASE AND STOP.....IT IS WEIRD HOWEVER THAT THE POLICE CAR HAD A COMMERCIAL RADIO STATION PLAYING....HARD TO BELIEVE THAT COMMUNICATION CAN NOT BE HAMPERED JUST A BIT WITH SECONDARY AUDIO IN THE BACKGROUND....

Waiting for the scum in this world to blame the cops for chasing this law abiding citizen! The chase in Cleveland last year when cops shots 120 sometimes, should of been use by the national police union! Stating if you dont obey the law/ law enforcement this will happen to you!!!!

How about if you all have a little decency for the mans family, and take this down. No one needs to see this video except for those investigating internally. This is not a news, this is a man's life, and he now has a grieving family, who doesn't need to be subjected to stumbling upon this.

Really upsetting to stumble upon this while searching for information about the funeral services of my friend.

Murrie, while the police do have a right to protect themselves, the public does NOT have a right to see this video. No one has said the police should erase the video, we have said it doesn't belong on the internet for people to see. If you knew this family, and the pain they are dealing with at all you would agree. This vidoe does no one any good at all, no one needs to be subjected to finding this online. no one. Not the family, not friends, no one. TAKE THE VIDEO DOWN!!!

Murrie, first of all, you know nothing of this family, not one single thing, so don't you dare imply you know how they would react. I have lived in this area my entire life, and I have disagreed with the public release of each and every dash camera video. These videos are not for PUBLIC consumption. If the families of victims wanted to view them, I would not have issue with that, BUT the general public has no right to view them. None. The general public does not have a right to know every single detail of everything that occurs. Not in this case, not in the case of the other cases you have mentioned. I find it disgracefully that any one thinks they do. Families have suffered the loss in the these cases. Families. They are the only ones that should have the right to view everything. You know nothing of me, so please do not tell me who I should be blaming. You have no idea the pain this family is going through regardless of how the accident happened, or the kind of person Dana was. I pray that you never have to suffer the sudden loss of a loved one, but I can promise you that if you do, you will not want a video of it plastered on the internet for anyone to view.

So your response to my comments is to drag him through the mud? wow, you are a real piece of work, aren't you? You should be ashamed of yourself. My comments have nothing to do with anything that has happened in the past, my comments express that if this were YOUR CHILD, loved one, or friend, you would not want this video on the internet, and you again, have totally missed the point that the public HAS NO RIGHT to see this video. I didn't say dash cams are not necessary, I said they do not need to be released to the PUBLIC. It's unbelievable to me that instead of looking at it from the perspective of the family, you have decided it would be a better idea to judge someone by what you see on paper, someone who isn't even here to defend himself. Would you like some one to post your ever mistake on the internet after your death? give me a break, dude. You clearly don't have an ounce of compassion for anyone. This is about protecting his family, not about the "why" or "how"s.
Horrified March 06, 2013 at 04:44 PM
I said you don't know the kind of person he is, and you still don't. What you see on paper is not the measure of a person. We all make mistakes in our lives, it doesn't mean we are bad people, it means we are human, and posting any prior mistakes he made is were your lack of compassion shows. By doing that you do nothing but add to a families pain, and that is just down right mean. Also, I see no where, and I have heard nothing to say that anyone has questioned the way the police handled it. But again, because you don't know the family or his friends, you wouldn't know that. I see nowhere that anyone has said that he shouldn't have been pulled over, no one has said the police killed him. You are making assumptions about how the people involved are reacting with no knowledge of actual events, besides what you have seen or read in the papers. I guess we are going to have to agree to disagree because I don't not believe, and will never believe that the public has a right to know everything that goes on. We have turned in to a nation a voyeurs that thinks we are entitled to every little detail of every little thing. I find it disgraceful.
Horrified March 06, 2013 at 04:58 PM
Have you been reading above? many people are outraged because the dash cam video is out there. I'm done arguing with you don't know the family. You've decided they must be blaming the police, which isn't true, you've decided no one is outraged, which isn't true. There is no point in continuing to go back and forth if you aren't even going to acknowledge facts.
Steve March 06, 2013 at 05:04 PM
I do not understand the fuss. It doesn't show the body. He is lucky no one was sitting on the steps at the time as it could have been much worse. Or hit another car head on loaded with family members. He caused this pain and suffering to his family, when all he had to do was stay put when first pulled over. End of story.
Meghan G March 12, 2013 at 04:09 AM
Murrie, you're being a total douche bag. I grew up with Dana, I am his first cousin. I just needed to be reminded that this was real, so I went looking back into the news to remember this isn't a nightmare. Then I see these heartless comments. You must be Godless to know no sympathy. Who gives a dogs butt about the police? It's a police state man, they're everywhere. Yeah, Dana should've stopped. And you should've kept your foot in your mouth. Shut up!
Meghan G March 12, 2013 at 04:10 AM
And Steve, how is he lucky? He wouldn't have to deal with pain or guilt, he's dead, remember?
Horrified March 12, 2013 at 05:14 PM
Meghan G, I'm soooo sorry you had to stumble upon this. If you'd like me to delete my comments above just let me know!
