This past week, an unidentified man was seen committing suicide on national television after having a car chase with Phoenix police officers.
The man has finally been identified as Jodon F. Romero, a 33-year-old who had a long history with crimes as a wanted felon.
According to the Huffington Post, he was wanted by the police after violating his parole with a weapons conviction and other violent crimes.
The site reports a police sergeant told them:
"Anybody who will shoot at police officers, that shows a total disregard for them, will shoot at anybody else," he said. "And this needed to be put to an end. Even after we backed out all the marked units he still continued to go."
Fox News has also been under fire after the surveillance tape of Jodon committing suicide was aired, in which they have apologized.
