At least one person was on the roof of the building when police arrived. He and another man were taken into custody after a short pursuit, authorities said. A man who was not captured allegedly left the area in a car and led police on a pursuit to Marlboro Street.Their mis-reporting led FK's Ademo to write his opinion piece, in which he assumed the Sentinel got it right and therefore makes several mistaken conclusions. Remember, as you listen to this audio, the blank spaces have been mostly excised from the piece to make it easier to listen. In the full audio, it's more than ten minutes before officer Jennifer Uhas (118) announces she has the first suspect in custody. Less than a minute later, the second suspect is in custody as well. In their report, the Sentinel claims to have their own scanner - so why the botched reporting?
The audio is pretty intense, and Keene police for the most part, do the best they can to bring aggressors to justice, backed by four state troopers, a couple of county sheriffs, and mutual aid units from Winchester, Dublin, and Troy. Sadly, some officers opted to use deadly force to stop the third suspect from running, which seems entirely inappropriate and even reckless, far beyond the recklessness of engaging in an unnecessary high-speed chase. Police should not use deadly force to stop someone unless that person is endangering life. Of course it's wrong to break, enter, and steal, but killing and endangering the community with gunfire and high speeds is not the answer.
