Why not rob a bank while you're at it? At least make all the effort worthwhile. I stopped chasing bikes long ago.....not worth losing my job over. If I chase a bike and total my patrol car in the process what was the point? Better yet, what if I kill an innocent driver because I busted a red light during the chase? Nah, still not worth it. So speed on suckers cuz this cop aint gonna chase you.

I think that the mentality which allows more aggressive tactics to stop fleeing vehicles is becoming more common. There isn't a good method for stopping bikes. Spike strips could easily cause death if the rider isn't skilled enough to handle a flat-tired bike, let alone one being handled at high speed. Just as likely to cause death is the use of cruiser to push a bike off the road. I am not in favor of the use of such methods with bikes. Cars have airbags and safety cages.

That said, don't run.

Well, if Peter Parker had used his powers to stop the robber, maybe that same robber wouldnt have shot and carjacked his Uncle Ben. Do you stop someone from running and maybe save an innocents life or do you let him go and he kills an innocent.


Just joking. trying to break the monotony of this debate:icon_rabb

Got what he deserved. No license means he should not have even been on the bike in the first place. If you choose to do stupid things, you should be prepared to suffer stupid consequences. What if he hit a child, or other innocent person, just to avoid a ticket? Pleeze.......... stupid is as stipid does. Again..........he deserved it.

I would be too if my car got F-ed up! I mean this guy could have done the same thing but maybe at an intersection with more cars and be dead or even killed someone else. And I think its dumb how the mother is backing up the son because this cop "hit" her son. I wonder if the fact that he was white has anything to do with it?

When the dept decides to back officers up for the decisions that they make then I'll start chasing again. If I kill someone during a chase, especially if the cause of the wreck is me chasing a suspect, then chances are high that I'll lose my job. Sorry bro, but I'm not giving up all the things that I've bust my for to chase some on his gixxer. By the way, spike strips are not designed for fleeing motorcycles.

I have to agree that the risk becomes very high for others who are not choosing to be involved with the chase to begin with over some lame motorcycle rider who more then likely will only kill themselves.

I have no problems with cops stopping known fleeing bank robbers, murderers etc by ANY means possible. But u are "supposed" to be innocent untill proven guilty.
But to Ram a bike or shoot at a rider because he is running, because he was speading is not right by any means. to me the cops actions by ramming don't fit the violation of initial speeding. Not in this instance per say but in a few we have read in the past.
buck said that the kid broke the law with not having a license so he desrved getting hit.
so where is the line of law breaking that deserves to have your life put in danger by getting rammed?
ANY violation of the law?
Look on the back of a ticket. u can get a speeding ticket for going 1 over the speedlimit, so by this reasoning then if u go 56 in a 55 u broke the law so u deserved to be taken out. So by Racer X it's ok for the cop to take u out for doing 1 over the speed limit cus sportbikers in general run. see what i am getting at?
There has to be a set limit to what kinda force is used for each violation.
Sure you are gonna have people running cus they know that cops will not chase them, they do now anyways.

It won't be too long before technology will stop all this. Say have cop cars emit a signal at a couple hundred yards when his emergencies are on that any car within range will pick up and signal the driver to watch out hence maybe stop innocence getting hit.

maybe equip every vehicle with a lojak similar device that a cop within line-of-site range will have some type of reader to be able to see who owns the vehicle. point and click. and once locked can track the vehicle. maybe a radar gun type devise that when u are hit with it it tells the cop who owns the car or bike , address etc? can do that from a great distance.
Anyone want to help me get a patent on any of these?

just my rambling of course.
later
Michael
