Oriana Ferrell faces charges of intentional abuse of a child, aggravated fleeing of a law-enforcement officer and possession of drug paraphernalia following the Oct. 28 pursuit.

    That's easy to prevent, just sign the damn ticket.

    The officer did a great job editing those "facts" out of the video. He should work for Dreamworks.

    It's probably Bush's fault.

    It's wacky words like yours here above that taint the good ones you often offer.

    The cop probably thought he could intimate the women into having sex with him plus I'm sure he's a Republican and calls himself a Christian.

    This is sad, the lady should have just signed the ticket and gone on her way. however the state cop was way out of line having his hand on his weapon most of the time. The officer seemed to have little self control as indicated by his voice, Grabbing her and trying to pull her out of her car. He has no business telling her the way she should deal with a "speeding ticket" giving her options?
    Smashing the window of the vehicle and then "Barney" shooting at a car full of kids?
    After watching this encounter, these state cops should be fired. This displayed a total lack of professionalism. Pathetic, welcome to New Mexico.

    Racism by cop. There is a reason the title "Pig" comes to mind.

    Google CBS News "NM police fire on minivan filled with kids, their mom: How it happened" and look at dash cam video.

    And she'll probably get a harsher punishment than the local, loser druggie punk burglars in these parts.

    This is a tactic they use to get an arrest. Stop the vehicle for a minor infraction then follow and intimidate the victim into a high speed chase. This type of law enfarcement is starting to become more and more aggressive and dangerous. Personally I believe they do this out of boredom and an inflated ego trip. These officers need to be arrested and charged with attempted murder, this is getting out of hand already!
