Police had no choice

Re "Police too quick to shoot" (Page A12, March 5): Gabriella Nevarez' death was unnecessary. However, it never would have happened if she had stopped after being pulled over for investigation of vehicle theft. She, not the police, chose not to comply, reaching speeds of 70 mph, putting other drivers in jeopardy, and ramming two police vehicles at separate locations.

Common sense dictates that anyone willing to ram police vehicles will also ram anyone else in her way. Don't blame the police for Nevarez' actions.
