Description

The police may use deadly force to shoot and kill a motorist who leads them on a reckless, high-speed chase, even if the suspect's car is temporarily cornered, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. In a unanimous decision, the justices threw out an "excessive force" claim brought against Arkansas police officers who chased a speeding car across the bridge into Memphis and shot the driver when he refused to give up. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/la-na-nn-supreme-court-police-shooting-20140527,0,3108911.story#
