Why shouldnt the rider be charged? His actions (and the Porsche drivers too) resulted in the LEO's death. Here's a TRUE story for ya. A few years ago a LEO was in a FOOT pursuit of a suspect. they ran across a bridge (over the Ohio river from Ky to Oh) The chase was on the roadway of the bridge, the suspect jumped over a rail from the road way to the sidewalk. There was about a 3 foot gap between the roadway and sidewalk. The Leo tripped, or slipped no one really knows... he didnt make the jump and fell about 60 feet to the cold dark Ohio river. He died. The suspect was charged and convicted in the death of the LEO.
Look at it like this. What happens if the guy in thePorsche had ran into an inoccent by-standard and killed them. Should they be charged. Yes they both would be charged, and this is no different. There silly street racing action resulted in th death of another person. But for the fact that these two bone heads were racing, the LEO never would have to go in a high speed pursuit. Their actions dictated the LEO's actions. They both should rot in jail.
