it surely is more dangerous for everyone when it turns into a chase... that is why should just stop, man up, and take their ticket....and if goes south they hold the complete financial and legal burden of their actions...the cops should do their job and catch the bad guy...with the whole burden of any bad results resting soley on the runner.

he needs to change jobs then if he cant do it or cut it.
Lord knows that runner isnt his fault but yet he chooses to bear the burden and in doing so, lets others slide or go because of it.
Shame on him for lack of doing his job appropriately and lets society end up with the results of his neglect.

:( That's a shame that he is left with that guilt. It's a shame that he feels that way, that kid made their decision, you know?

I read a report once that 85% of criminals have hypoglycemia. The low blood sugar causes a release of insulin, which causes a release of adrenaline, which induces the fight or flight response in the brain. So we should just arm cops with sandwiches...

I know no one asked, but if it was up to me as soon as someone started to run they would be shot. High speed chases are just as dangerous as someone randomly shooting a rifle in various directions in the road. No one would question shooting that person. The same standard should apply.

I'd say that calling it in is more responsible. You chase, they fly, danger increases. Call it in, & the runner (in whatever vehicle) gets pulled over/stopped later on - hopefully in a more slow, safe and effective manner.

Maybe, maybe not. Maybe they tbone someone even though the cops aren't chasing. Maybe they ditch the vehicle. Maybe the vehicle was stolen.

Shoot 'em as soon as it get's started. Nip it in the bud.

Of course, with the way most cops shoot, you may be right.

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. .
What does he mean "crishes" ??

Be a good citizen and obey the law.

I hope more police officers chase speeding riders out there. I'd rather have less of these knuckleheads off the street anyway.

Don't quite understand how some of you tend to always side with the rider. Perhaps you're still young or you're a true rebel.

When they shoot people, tax payers foot the hospital bill. No thanks. I'd rather they have the stolen 2k bike than spend 30k for their medical bills.
