On average, according to the report, one person every day is killed during a high-speed chase.
To put this into perspective, that’s larger than the number of people killed by floods, tornadoes, lightning and hurricanes — combined.
Contrary to popular thinking, high-speed chases aren’t only dangerous for those involved. Innocent bystanders are all too often the victims of these reckless pursuits.

Hammond, 19, who was not armed, was shot through a side window “in self-defense” according to Police Chief John Covington.

Huntsville, AL — Four years ago, Huntsville police officer Brett Russell pulled suspect Gary Wayne Hopkins from the back of a police cruiser and proceeded to violently attack him as fellow officers held him down. Despite the assault being captured on video, it took nearly four years for Russell to finally be found guilty. This delay was a function of the blue code of silence.

On the Bridge for Justice Highlighting Medical Malpractice Month
Stop the Silence: Hope, Honor & Healing
Citing the growing epidemic of injury and death resulting from errors in medical care, the cities of Houston, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, along with the local legislators of these cities have joined the National Medical Malpractice Awareness Association (NMMAA) in proclaiming July “Medical Malpractice Awareness Month.”
Preventable mistakes in medical care are the third leading cause of death in America, according to the Journal of Patient Safety. “More than 400,000 people die every year in America’s hospitals from infections, inappropriate treatment, botched procedures, and other preventable mistakes,” says Deirdre Gilbert, National Director of NMMAA. “We are working to alert the public to this dangerous and unacceptable situation. We need to end negligent care, eliminate medical mistakes and support the many who have been injured and the families of those who have lost loved ones.”
We will meet on the Rosemont Bridge at , at Buffalo Bayou Park, Memorial Drive/Allen Parkway, in Houston, TX. This event is open to the public, and hospital executives, legislators, community-based organizations, nursing home administrators, home health agency directors are encouraged to attend.
“Medical Malpractice Awareness Month provided an opportunity to focus on healing, caring about the caretakers of those affected by medical negligence, and to petition for more accountability and oversight to ensure patient safety.
NMMAA culminates the outstanding victories of awareness with a release of butterflies; to represent hope in ending medical negligence, honor those who were injured or lost their lives to medical negligence and to heal hearts of the families who lost their loved ones.
