    Father and son get into a fight because the father won't buy his son a pack of cigarettes. So the son steals his father's truck. The father called the cops who tracked the kid and the truck down. The kid refused to stop, was running red lights and went tearing across the campus at Iowa State University. The police fired shots into the truck. Kid dyed. Now the father is mad at the police.

    Terrible story, no good will come from it. You can make a case for excessive force, but also in favor of it.

    Oh well, probably better off dead.

    This kid stole his dads truck because his dad did his job as a father and said no to smoking. Fking stupid as kid if you ask me.
