Was this Australia? I can't see this happening in America. What a dumb ass parent. I would definately risk getting a ticket or even jail before I risked my kid's life. Stupid move by the cops, criminal, and parents. No real winners in this story...
P.S. These cops better be held on child endangerment, abuse of power and second degree (or whatever dumb degree it is) attempted vehicular manslaughter charges.

To those accusing the civilians of being stupid for allowing the police to do this, read the article again. The drivers had no idea that they were being used as human shields until the speeding car was in their rear vision mirror and it was too late to move.
Oh, and Aussie cops are quickly becoming every bit as corrupt and bad as their US counterparts.
