When will law enforcement officers stop chasing motorcycles? It is not worth killing some idiot on a bike over a traffic violation. They killed one on 1810 near Chico a while back.

I don't think they should chase them either. Let them go and turn them over to the next county cop to follow and give him a ticket after he is safely stopped.

11:02. The bike riders that run kill themselves. And because you ride a motorcycle you can ignore traffic law?

So according to 11:02 stupid people on motorcycles don't have to obey traffic laws.If he had of ran into the side of a car when he was doing eighty miles an hour it would have been (king-x) nobody hurt.How really ignorant you must be.If a fool such as this were to hit me fleeing I can gurantee you a death.

Ummm....Uncle Wally the fault lies at the feet of the offender. The officers were doing their job. HE chose to disobey and run. What if they had let him go and he had hit another vehicle at 80-100 mph? Would it be the officers fault then for failing to stop him. Break out of the mentality that cops are bad. They are human and do make mistakes sometimes but let them do their jobs. People don't flee because they are afraid of a ticket. They flee because they are drunk/high/wanted for other criminal offenses. Criminals are actually the bad guys. Let it rest.

It goes beyond a mere traffic violation when they do not stop. It's now felony evading..Get your facts straight....

The motorcycle rider had the option of pulling over and getting his day in court or risk death. Hummm.. Yep. Highway Patrol's fault.

Many cities, Dallas is one, do not engage in high speed chases because of the potnetial danger to other drivers and the public in general. As soon as the officer stops the pursuit, the fleeing suspect slows down. The only time they pursue is in the case of a known suspect in a felony, such as a robbery. 99% of all drivers, car and motorcycle pull over when an officer tuns on his lights. Not engaging in high speed chases is becoming the norm.
You guys on here are just a little too bloodthirsty over a speeder.

Yea....All LEO's should follow Dallas PD's policy. We know they are the premier law enforcement agency. With allot of the officers getting fired, beating people, and getting aressted.

The officer knew enough about the suspect to know about where he lived. So he could have gone and gotten him anytime. The comment about the motorcycle hitting someone driving one he highway can stand for the officer as well. I just don't think it was worth a high spew pursuit on an already dangerous highway.

I can,t believe that we would make this decision to chase a motorcycle and put other people's live in danger just to be able to say we got our man.Come on the DPS has got to use better judgement when they knew who they were chaseing and could have went the next day and picked the man up.Everybodies luck is going to run out and innocent people are going to get killed.

How do you people know DPS knew who he was when they were chasing him? I doubt they did. Stop being mi-informed. The only reason the guys name is listed is be caused he wrecked running from the police and they could I.D. Him at the crash scene. DUH!!!

Anonymous said...

Because I know who the officer is and I know the rider of the motorcycle and both the rider and the officer know each other.And to more informational about it I was told by DPS.So unless you know please don't tell me I have been misinformed.You are like other non believers that live in our county I guess you are going to have to be an innocent person that might be involved in a accident when the DPS is in a not needed high speed chase. Double Duh

What happens in a high speed pursuit:
1. The suspect crashes and is injured.
2. The suspect crashes and is killed.
3. The suspect crashes into a third party vehicle and one or more are injured.
4. The suspect crashes into a third party vehicle and one or more are killed.
5. The prusuing officer crashes and is injured.
6. The pursuing officer crashes and is killed.
7. The prusuing officer crashes into the suspect and one or more are injured.
8. The pursuing officer crashes into the suspect and one or more are killed.
9. The pursuing officer crashes into a third party vehicle and one or more are injured.
10. The pursuing officer crashes into a third party vehicle and one or more are killed.
11. The suspect eventually slows down, stops, surrenders, and is arrested.
12. The pursuing officer pulls off the pursuit with the dash cam video of the suspect's car and licence plate, and the suspect goes home and hides in the garage.

Her are a dozen scenarios and 10 are bad. It doesn't take a mathematical genius to figure out what is in the best interest of public safety, which of course is the job of law enforcement.

8:05. Riiiiiight. At 8:15 at night on 287. We all can see exactly who speeding motorcycle riders are.

Anonymous said...

8:47. Yes when DPS officers say he knew who it was because he stopped him a couple of weeks ago.

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much 8:05! I'm right there along with you. People believe that there is no corruption in law enforcement. They are here to serve and protect us and never do anything wrong. I respect an appreciate the ones that really stand for that, but don't respect the power trip officers. People need to look at the big picture, and whats in the best interest of everyone. Not just what makes he officer look good!

Thank you 10:52 am,some of the officers that we have now do not realize what it takes to do a good job.They get to invovled in a ego trip chase and don't think about other people on the road.People like 2:54 pm need to wake up also and realize what the DPS has done here is very wrong and that these decisions are putting other people in danger also.As you can see on this forum several people are upset about this.Please DPS stop these power trip chases
