Police need better judgment
The current policy of "pursuit of fleeing vehicle" by the
police and authorities needs to be changed.
With updated aids, computers, radios, tire strips, the "fleeing
vehicle" certainly isn't going to get away. The crashes and
deaths are the end result. I do not fault the police, but
certainly, it is time for those "in charge" to use better
judgment in making decisions.
