219: High Speed Chase

219: High Speed Chase

Aug 16, 2002
Stories of innocent people fleeing from dangerous men in cars who shoot at them. Unlike in the movies, the pursuers aren't foreign agents or rogue CIA agents, but drunk off-duty policemen and small-town teenagers. Real-ife high-speed chases: who gets chased...and who does the chasing.
  • Susan Burton's story continues. She investigates the effect the high-speed chase had in the town where it happened—Miller, South Dakota, one of the top ten most racially homogeneous places in the country. For most people in the town, the event was embarrassing and horrifying, but they were quick to excuse the boys, and they didn't understand why Native Americans might see it as anything other than an isolated incident.
