Chase maims cruisers
He watched the chase at Kate Collins, saw Johnson carefully aim at Kasdan’s wheels before shooting, and was leaning against a tree as the fugitive drove past, “swishing the hair out of his eyes.”

Blogger Tony Gonzalez: You bet. Got stopped far from the scene initially, shot this on a whim, and didn't notice it until much later. Another editor lived right near the chase's conclusion and shot some good stuff before I got down there.
