Should police be allowed to commence high-speed chases


I was watching HLN today & they brought up a chase in Florida where a driver suspected of DWI was chased by police at high speeds through the streets. A former police officer/commentator for HLN commented "there is always some knucklehead" referring to the suspected DWI driver. And yet, who were the knuckleheads? The suspect sped off being chased and slammed into other cars injuring people. Now that never would have happened but for the police pursuing the suspect at high speeds. The chase is presumed to stop & save lives, but more often it kills innocents. What do you think?

    For speeding? No seat belt? Suspected DWI? Running a stop sign? Seems a little much. Plus it is making police judge & jury. Plus it is dangerous to bystanders. Plus it is illegal & reckless action.
