Driving At High Speed And Killing People

Staff Pick

In March, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Martray Proctor killed Shatona Robinson when he slammed into her Ford Escort while doing 90 mph. No blue lights, no siren. Two months later, a Concord police car chase ended in a crash that killed 84-year-old Docia Barber, who was on her way to get a prescription refilled. Police speeders killing citizens is one national trend this area can do without, but Char-Meck Police Chief Rodney Monroe has said he wants to actually loosen regulations on police high-speed chases. We think the police should take their own advice and slow the hell down.
