      Didn't take long for the:

      “Byron was quiet. He was a real nice guy,” Clark said. “He didn’t start trouble.”

      Speedy recovery to the injured officer.

        This is speculation of course, but if that officer ruptured his achilles tendon, he would have been nearly helpless to get himself out of the way of the vehicle or otherwise protect himself. Down on the ground in front of a fleeing vehicle is certainly a life or death situation.
        I ruptured my achilles 5 years ago, and it was not pleasant. Feels like someone hit the back of your foot with a baseball bat. It requires surgical repair and 6 mos to a year before you're back at full strength. Hope the officer has a speedy recovery.

          and this one...

          Clark said Carter had been “running with the wrong crowd, but there’s no way he would steal a car.”
          Is she really so certain that there's no way he would steal a car? People are so disconnected from reality. Wake up, you didn't raise an angel. Wishing for a speedy recovery to the injured officer.

          The officer struck by the car is being treated for a ruptured achilles tendon.

          "Why shoot?" Carter, Sr. said. "Did he have a weapon or did he point a weapon? It’s too much. The police are doing too much right now. First thing they see somebody and you want to pull a gun and start shooting somebody. That’s not right."

          This was not Byron Carter Junior's first run-in with the law.

          Austin police arrested him on July 10, 2010 for evading arrest. Officers say Carter sold crack cocaine to undercover officers and when they tried to arrest him, they say he ran. Officers eventually caught him and took him to jail.
          Again, people are disconnected from reality. Car being used to strike an officer = deadly weapon. Also not his first run-in. I'm not saying that his past justifies what happened to him that night; but his decisions and actions that night justifies what happened to him that night. It's hard to feel bad for him (being the passenger) when he clearly knows right from wrong and shouldn't have put himself in that situation. The chickens have come home to roost.

            It's interesting that the family talks about him "running with the wrong crowd" as if this was something he was pressured into doing. The driver was 16 years old and the passenger was a grown man who made the decision to get into the car with the 16 year old.
