Re: “Driver arrested in South Hill after chase” (TNT, 7-16).
I was stuck in the traffic jam on Meridian caused by eight Tacoma police cars blocking the southbound right lane after officers bumped a fleeing car at 136th and Meridian. I went through at about 5:30 p.m. and when arriving home found that my son had been blocked the same way at 4:30.
Over an hour, eight police cars lights flashing, engines likely running and wasting gas – and for what reason? The suspect was in custody, the car was off the road and officers were standing around gabbing.
Move the squad cars off the road, get back to work and quit blocking rush-hour traffic. I think an explanation is in order.
