Police Chase

Atlanta police say they are outraged by the sentence given to a deaf man with Aids who bit an officer during a struggle. Ross Deadwyler was given five years with only 18 months to serve but Police wanted him to get 15 years with six years to serve. A chase through Atlanta streets a year ago hit speeds of nearly 100 mph before a pit maneuver ended Deadwyler's wild ride. When he didn't obey their spoken orders, the officers tased him. Deadwyler pled guilty and the judge says he took Deadwyler's condition into account in his sentencing. The officer did not contract the disease from the bite. See the chase and a video story here.
