According to a CBS News reporter, a police car ran over a civilian in Tacoma, Washington, on the night of January 23. From a video sent out by the reporter, a police car rolled over a person under the exclamation of onlookers. However, according to the other two videos posted by the reporter, before the incident, a group of local drag racing parties were playing “drift” on the street. After passers-by called the police, the scene fell into chaos for a time, and some police cars were besieged and smashed. Then, a police car rushed into the crowd, and there was the scene of crushing civilians.
At present, the local police have given a response, saying that the civilian who was crushed has been sent to hospital, the injury is unknown (but there are also claims that it is not serious). Local police also said that before the incident, there were about 100 people gathered to watch the “drift” and blocked an intersection. When the police arrived, one of the police cars was besieged and smashed after the alarm lights and sirens sounded, and was forced to rush out of the crowd to a safer place. The local police finally said that the case had been handed over to another official agency for independent investigation. It is worth mentioning that, on twitter, the social networking site in the United States, the voice of blaming the police seems to occupy the majority. These people think that the drifting drag racing party is not harmful, but the police aggravate the situation.
