Stealing clothes from a retailer can kill a person? If you are going to cherry pick quotes, pick the right one. The speeding analogy he used was pertaining to the enforcement aspect of it.
Funny story time, well maybe not so funny. So I work in a 'law' related field. Names and all that left out and all that. And every once and a while these float up on through. A guy was running through a mall escaping a mallcop, where he'd stole a pair of pants from a store. Cop waiting outside as he'd gotten a respond call and he'd been starting a 13 at the time. He see's the cop walk in the mall door, panics, runs over the railing kills himself. Fell two stories.
And yes, speeding 'enforcement' does kill people. Yes I have "seen" people smear themselves down a smiling patch of highway, after the bar goes on. On various vehicles because they've thought they can outrun a cop. Motorcycles seem to be biggest offenders, but sometimes cars do too.
No cherry picking required, just the reality of the world.
