If she can hold 120, in a crown victoria, close on someone's tail, more power to her. A professional driver would have a hard time doing it. In the camera where she's on his tail, they're not at 120. They probably cut out the parts where he put it to the floor. A crown vic only tops out at 128 mph, despite what the disinformation agents would have you believe.
The state cruiser she was in may or may not have "extra" items under the hood, but county doesn't spend any money on extras, and just getting to 120 in one of those things takes longer than they would have you believe. That's why they have interceptors.
The Ford Police Interceptor 4.6L SFI is the crown victoria, for those of you that want to look over the chart.edit on 31-10-2011 by Evolutionsend because: (no reason given)

What are the odds of this woman having to quit her job due to a good chance of her being harassed around the station or precinct for being a "rat," or not having a fellow officers back? These guys usually stick together, right? I hope she is not punished for her actions.
It wouldn't be tolerated if it were you or I. Why do you give them a pass?

Good for the trooper. Professional courtesy between cops should only go so far. This wasn't 5 over through a speed trap. That fool was endangering people's lives at those speeds and for what? A second job? I wonder if his department was aware he was moonlighting.
