In case you missed it, a man identified as Jodon F. Romero committed suicide Friday after trying to outrun Phoenix police.
His death was witnessed by anyone who was tuned in to Fox News at the time, as the network was covering the chase live for its national audience, for some reason.

As evidenced by Friday's events, you don't really know how car chases are going to end, and this one didn't end well. Scores of people complained about a suicide being aired on live TV, and while the complaints varied, the most common one seemed to be that car chases shouldn't be aired on live TV -- unless the person is famous, according to some.
So, for this morning's poll: should Fox News keep showing live car chases?
