Let's see, they should just let him break the law. Right? I suppose not getting the same increase as the year before is a "cut" in your fairyland world. Right?

It wasn't a biker, Mr. Run My Mouth Without Checking the Facts. It was a Ford Explorer they were trying to stop after several complaints of occupant's driving. HE chose not to stop. Could have been because he stole the vehicle from somebody in Little Falls. If he is suffering, it is because of his own doing, and you should be glad he didn't hurt somebody else. I'm glad they tried to get him off the road. Perhaps they should have just let him continue his erratic driving until he killed someone innocently driving to work, huh?

He was driving an SV, that makes it even worse!

A larger vehicle causes even more damage.

The difference is that the fleeing SUV crashed and the driver ejected with severe head injuries and airlifted ($6,000) to a hospital.

Had the SUV hit another vehicle the damage would have been much worse than a bike.

Either case high speed chases are very dangerous.

So they should have just waited until he drifted in his likely drunkenness across the median or into somebody else's lane and killed them without being chased? And we should just send a message to criminals as a whole that if you run, we won't chase you? You're free? And I also imagine it's OK if someone steals your car that the cops don't even try to pull him over as he would be likely to run? Do you know for a fact he would have slowed down if they hadn't pursued him and ended the same way?

An event for you.

Back in the 1970s I was driving along highway 36 and observed a wrong way driver late at night. You know probably drunk. Having observed a tragic wreck on 36 a year earlier while on a motorcycle, the drunk a year earlier only stopped after hitting another car head on under the Rice street bridge with horrific injuries, I decided to take action.

So I positioned my vehicle in front of the wrong way drunk driver and crossed the median in front of then Embers eatery and once in front of the drunk I slammed on my brakes.

The drunk stopped and I effected a Citizens arrest and he pleaded guilty, paid a fine and that was it.

I sincerely feel the police can do better than pulling in behind a drunk and turning on their flashing lights and chasing the drunk.

It's 2011 and the old days of chase them down is long gone..

Whatever Chuck Norris. What if the drunk hadn't stopped and continued on?

It seems that you are actually against cops, as you seem to have a problem with them even attempting to pull someone over. As I said, this guy was already driving recklessly, and I'm sure they'd run the plate to learn it was a stolen vehicle. Sounds like they should have just ignored the calls and hoped for vigilante like you, huh?

In the situation where I pulled in front of the drunk, I was prepared to be hit and was willing to have my vehicle totaled in order to stop the drunk. Remember I witnessed a head-on wreck a year earlier with tragic results, a passenger in the rear seat drivers side took the drivers side window in the forehead. Window came out of the track and flew into the rear seat passenger.

Seems I'm against COPs DUHHHH, well ya when the COPs pull in behind a drunk lighting up the drunk sees the lights and hits the gas and the chase is on.

I sincerely feel it would be smarter to pull in front of the drunk and smash the brakes to force stop the drunk. Additionaly squad cars need deployable spears on the trunk so when the drunks vehicle hits the squad the coolers are destroyed and maybe the ignition system of the drunks vehicle.

It would also be a good idea to use 1 ton trucks for squad cars, giving the officers protection from the idiots on the road today.

I didn't use anything to stop the drunk that isn't available today.

Except my brain which COPs don't have.

So basically, they should have to drive less maneuverable vehicles, install expensive equipment, risk lawsuits over the damage incurred by the driver when hitting both, all because of the handful of brainless fools who refuse to pull over? Or maybe they already have it right. The driver crashes, he is seriously injured or dies, and is held responsible for anyone he takes with him. Perhaps one day they will figure out how to disable any vehicle remotely. Until then, Darwinism will prevail

Is there any winner in a high speed chase?

Consider the more recent one in South Mpls where the innocent went to the hospital with a broken pelvis.

You cannot find out the names of the COPs involved. They hide behind the "Blue Curtin".

Which came first the chicken or the egg?

Did the perp try to escape the police before the flashing lights were activated?

OR did the flashing lights trigger the perp to flee and end up crashing sending an innocent to the hospital with a broken pelvis?

So cops should never try to pull anyone over? Is that what you'd like to see? Technically any stop could turn into this. Guess they should just let people do what they want. Wonder what the death/injury rate would be with that. All because of an extremely small population of idiots who refuse to pull over.

What were you arrested for?
