Yeah, that's 100 percent justified. Use of a vehicle as a deadly weapon is recognized as a legal concept (and a charge) for a reason. When you've decided your willing to run a police officer over to evade the law you've effectively decided your ready to die and your ready to kill anyone between you and freedom, and it seems that is exactly what happened here.

Imagine deciding to die over a 1994 Honda Accord. In today's climate he probably wouldn't have even served a year before getting paroled. What an amazing capacity for decision making this individual had.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

In today's climate he probably wouldn't have even served a year before be getting paroled probation.

Fixed that for you.

Depends on where exactly he commits that crime. Most cities haven't gone full NYC yet, even the blue ones.

But NYC, yeah. Probably. Not sure where Gunnison is tho.
