Do you think the police should chase a person that has broken the law at high speeds on the streets?
Sometimes these chases causes accidents that take innocent lives. Shouldn't there be a system of communication to pin point a run-away criminal?
I think the police should be able to make a judgment call.
Consider what would result if police could never pursue because of a law... criminals would ALWAYS run!
Speeding is considered as traffic violation and who ever break the law should be punished. If the law officer will let violator run from their offense sooner or later they will again commit the crime.
High speed chases are generally carefully thought out, even at spur of the moment. It all depends on the time of the day or night, the fact that it is a felony, and important the the criminal be captured now. It also depends on how heavily traveled the street in question is. There would be no high speed chase on Main St. in the middle of the day.
The same question holds true for an ambulance: the rush a person with serious injuries to the hospital at high speeds, as well.
