Other than suicide by cop, what compelled this man to exit the vehicle with a rifle to allegedly attack the small army of law enforcement officers surrounding him? Did he think he was going to fight his way out? Did he not care either way?
I would like to see some compiled data on all toxicology reports from violent criminals and to see it collected on arrest for said compilation. There is some research that suggests a strong link between drugs (including alcohol) and violence. Some may feel that it’s common sense, while others disagree entirely.
I have no way of knowing if this suspect was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, this is merely an attempt to understand the mind of a violent criminal.
The news report can be seen here.
More details on what led to the chase here.
