I think I might be the only one who believes the officer that shot out the tire did the right thing.
The amount of lives the driver put at risk while fleeing from the police outweighs the risk of shooting out the tire. He wanted to prevent a pursuit, not shoot anyone.

that is one patient cop!!
unless there's something we are not aware of (there seems to be a question of the integrity of the tape) the mom should have just opted to pay the fine in the time given and signed the ticket (if she had taken it to court they probably would have included the suspended license also!)
My theory is she knew that there was drug paraphernalia inside the van and she was terrified of going to jail...
I am not convinced she actually tried to escape the first time, I think she was confused.
She pulled over as soon as he got behind her and she would've known he would catch her.
