Democrat law emboldens criminals, illegal drivers to ignore police
More than 900 drivers in Washington state refused orders from a state patrol officer to pull over during the first five months of the year in the wake of a law that allows vehicle pursuits only in limited circumstances.
“Something’s changed. People are not stopping right now,” said Sgt. Darren Wright, who has been a Washington State Patrol spokesman for 31 years. “It's happening three to five times a shift on some nights and then a couple times a week on day shift.”
