The chase actually started in Ruckersville by Greene county deputies, up to Madison County, back to Stanardsville, then across the mountain into Rockingham county. Funny how when you know the whole story, the news very rarely gets the story accurate.

With all those stretches of road I wonder why no road blocks or spike strips were used?

Road blocks and spike strips are considered use of deadly force. So even if the guy calls 911 and tells the cops where he is going they can't set up a road block unless deadly force is an option. If they were murders on the run who had actively engaged the officers in gunfire, then they could have used a roadblock. But otherwise it really isn't allowed. Stupid how the good guys are the only ones who play by the rules huh?

Road blocks and spike strips are only uses of force, not deadly force. The caveat is motorcycles. Spike strips on a motorcycle can only be used when deadly force is authorized.

It's also much easier to crush the eluding motorcyclist to death with the 4000 lb. cruiser than it is to use spike strips to kill him.

Yes, Rockingham dispatcher asked Greene SD if they would like for Rockingham deputies to use spike strips and Greene SD, showing GOOD JUDGEMENT, replied NO, it was only a traffic violation.

Were I work you run at high speed your commiting a felony and thus yes we will ask for them to spike you. We bring back something if you run from us even if its your servered head from ejection.
I know your saying what if the guy is only suspended or not licensed? Call it natural selection getting rid of another waste to society.

Is it good judgement to chase somebody until they outrun you too? Just for a traffic violation?

The runners usually have a reason to run such as wants or warrants out on them from other places. Our local runners seem to include many convicted felons who have a firearm in the car and don't want to get caught with it since that means several years in the house for "at risk hope and changers". The bag of dope under the front seat gives more reason to try and sucker the cop so he can be shot.

Why should police take risks to try to stop these fools? With a little bit of luck they will broadside a fat lawyer that does lots of pro bono work for the ACLU and mall rats.
