    Thank God for the police! These brave men and women go to work each day and night putting their lives on the line the entire time. In this case, I was listening to the police radio and the criminal was speeding away from the scene in excess of 80mph, striking an innocent bystanders car on 6th Ave. He could have easily killed more people had APD not stopped him. Thank you to all the officers out there and thanks Shane for bringing the facts of the case.
