Seems pretty serious at first glance. But, were you there when the car was ramming the police vehicles??? IF,,, the late groom was doing it after the police showed their badges and portable flashing lights,,, then I would guess he wanted to die.. I don't honestly believe race was an issue, but I do think it had something to do with the facial expression** of the man who was behind the wheel of the car,,, and more importantly/significant,, his actions... He chose to ram and run.. Bad Choice Bro. New York cops may be a bit quick to spray and pray.. That unarmed guy they killed a few years ago in front of his apartment is troublling. He wasn't ramming vehicles and buildings with a 2800#+/- hammer/weapon either, this latest fatality did. ** Don't really care for his lack of smile in the photos shown with his almost widow.. Seemed like he had a chip on his shoulder, and not a fire in his heart for the woman he was to wed.
