Police pursuits - there's a lack of respect for authority
when approached by law enforcement will say "yes sir -no sir or
yes ma'am - no ma'am" even if they have not used these terms since
childhood, out of respect for authority.
Those individuals who flee from officers should be chased and apprehended
because they lack this basic respect for authority. Likely it is
these individuals that hurt our communities and cause an even greater
harm to public safety, than the risk and danger posed by high speed
Even if the initial offense appears minor - fleeing an officer makes
the offense major, as it speaks volumes of the person who would
attempt to evade Law Enforcement. Criminals should not think that
by driving fast and reckless they can possibly avoid arrest.
We can not live in a society without risk and high speed chasing
is a risk I accept in order to live in a community that respects
