Re "Police too quick to shoot" (Letters, March 5): The woman who was shot by police had numerous chances to stop before she rammed into two police cars in a residential street. Letter writer letter writer Esatcan Gencer wants to have the police to shoot out the tires. Too much time at the movies. They could miss and the bullet might ricochet and hit a bystander. I believe police officers had no choice.
