I think they should be allowed...but, they should give the runner atleast 3 chances to restart..

easy answer.
Yeah but if the idiot kills someone running from the police over some petty theft its just retarded. Yeah cops would love a high speed chase over just about anything including petty theft.

A rider: most definitely yes. You can see who all is involved in the persuit.

In a car/truck? I would handle it situationally. There have been chases with young children in the vehicles. Definitely want them stopped, but I would be far less aggressive as possible for as long as possible.

See the problem is this:

If police does not give chase, the driver/rider is fine, usually...

If police do give chase, they increase the likelihood of the pursued making a mistake. The speed goes up, decisions need to be made, bad drivers and riders get nervous. That is why chasing is dangerous.

Not only the runner is having to make these quick decisions, but one, two, three, and maybe more drivers making the decisions as well and without a clear line of sight.

These chases are incredibly dangerous for bystanders.

It's a tough dilemma and not quite as black and white as it seems.

Bikes....I firmly believe that cops should chase known felons but Chasing someone who is just cruising at 100mph is not justifable....think about it...we typically cruise 10 to15 over the speed limit as it is...so someone doing 100 isnt that much faster....now the squids that are flying down the highway spltting cars at speeds over 120....absolutel but only in a controlled manner...and spike strips.... NO, That would put innocent people at risk..blockades...YES. IF an idiot wants to try to be cool and not pay to play then he desreves to be pushed to wrecking point or stopping point.

Cars....again... only known felons and if the situation permits....High speed chases put A LOT of innocent people at risk and there are other ways of catching someone with out chasing....Radios travel alot faster then a dozen or so LEO's. They can easily radio ahead and set up road blocks!

It should almost be determined by the crime committed. If it was a violent crime or a felony I'm all for it. On the other hand if it is a petty crime it happens to put a lot of innocent bystanders in risk of injury for little reason. It boils down to a risk vs reward situation that the officer has to sometimes make in the heat of the action. Yo should look up the law Dallas implemented. I believe my buddy told me only certain units are allowed to pursue over 100 mph now, but then again he could have just been talking out of his .

High speed chase, should it be legal?

Well, There are alot of good arguements on both sides, But there is really only one thing to consider first, What would happen if it was not allowed, or legal to chase people that ran from the police. It does'nt matter if its a bike, car, bus, or a tank, Anybody/everyone would haul from the cops, Think about how that would work out. So, Yes, I agree with most everyone here, Chase them and stop them with just about any means possible, but the officers must use their brain while trying to take down said criminal, And do their very best not to harm the general public. History has proved it to be a tough thing to accomplish.

No that's true.

Have you checked and gotten the #/percentage of innocents injured/killed in pursuits? ...and how many of those were caused by the runner vs the police? Note: in this case innocents are those in/on vehicles other than those being pursued.

"On average...

• Crashes as a result of police chases and police response calls kill more than one person a day, and one-third of the people killed are innocent bystanders.

• Innocent third parties who just happened to be in the way constitute 42 percent of persons killed or injured in police pursuits. "

I dunno how that works.

I had two good friends killed in high school on two separate occasions due to a high speed chase. One was hit by a drunk driver running and the other was hit by a cop chasing. My girlfriend at the time was in the car when the drunk driver hit our friend. Our friend was found laying on the hood with her face peeled back after being thrown threw the windshield.

I can't put it in words how friggin aweful that would be, But if the police were not allowed to chase how would you feel if some arsehole car-jacked somebody close to you, maybe they resisted and the car-jacker stabbed or shot that person close to you then took the car and hauled , the cops saw it happening, but by the time they got there the crook was well on his way, so the officer says well, maybe we will run into him in the future.

How would ou feel if dude just murdered your family w blood all over him, of course cops can't see that cuz they're behind him. But he wicks I up to 100 then runs away to the hills of the ozarks never to be seen again

Btw, runners are charged often times w the death of anybody involved , cop or bystander. As runner should be

What if....very long game

If its a felony I think it's a bit different. I talking more about regular traffic stops. But I definitely see your point.

the problem with today's society is they have gotten very soft towards criminals. They should be treated the same way criminals are treated in 3rd world countries. When the punishment is severe, people think twice about doing something stupid.

Cops don't know he murdered the family, he only has a hidden plate......but if he had stooped they woulda seen the blood , but they let him fly, he broke your 100mph mandate, so the cops called off the pursuit. No helos

What if?
