Aren't the police not supposed to chase people that fast due to public safety?

DPS can do what the they want, including shooting at a runner. Aren't people not supposed to run from the police?

I know of at least one who does. There was a rider speeding on the feeder. Cop flashed his lights, motorcycle took off, ran a red light and hit the broad side of an 18 wheeler. The kid's lid didn't help and the cop ended up writing a fatality report, rather than the ticket he had planned. To date, he either ignores speeding bikes, or just calls it in.

They send prayers. I wonder if runners (a criminal in this case with warrants) feel bad when they scare the out of motorists who are just minding their own business and trying to get through life

I talked to a Harris County Constable that patrols my neighborhood. He says he won't chase a motorcycle. He'll call it in too! Said it's not worth getting someone killed!

what do you mean by feel bad?
Very few people actually enjoy others being hurt or killed, if that is what you mean by feel bad, I would guess that most do.
If by feel bad you mean feel guilty or responsible, I would hope not. The responsibilty for what happens in that case rests soley on the that ran and put himself and others in a dangerous situation. I have zero sympathy for anyone who runs... take your ticket and move on.

Cop will feel worse if he he didn't stop the speeding bike, which then T-bones a car and kills a mom and her baby inside.
