After the suspect rammed the first unit with the trailer knocking him 90 degrees to the left, how could they terminate the pursuit...

The driver was a felony ADW suspect at that time, so do you just let him go?

To me there is just as much "liability" letting him go as there is chasing him... As it turned out the officers made the right decision. They were able to stop the suspect, with the only injuries / fatalities being the suspect...
That may sound harsh, however it was the suspects actions which caused the officers to react with deadly force... At any time he could have simply stopped the truck and surrendered...

His choices the officers reacting to those choices....

All choices have consequences. The consequences of this suspects choices were his own death.....
