That gives me the whips and jingles just watching it. I think had that happened next to me, I'd have soiled myself.

safety

After one of the clips in this treath I send half my day looking at safety ads.
Many of them way more impactfull then these.
I hope some of them will stick in my head.









The next ones are a bit heavy, but looking at all the video's that glorify high speed police chases in residential area's, 200+Km/h highway lane splitting and other crazy stunts, I think this side of the story also deserves a glance.









Sorry for being such a buzzkill in my first post.
By the way: I'm far from a saint myself, when it comes to speeding and lane splitting and other stupid shit.
I just hope these kind of ads will help me calculate the actual risks a bit better.

Blame the CRIMINALS

That officer did a great job staying in control and staying with the CRIMINAL. When are people gong to start taking responsibility and blaming the CRIMINALS, and demand stiffer penalties.

You are probably of the thinking, that guns are bad, and not the people who use then the wrong way.

I think the idea here is that a ferret running around the house is less reckless than a dog chasing a ferret around the house.

Does the same logic apply to bankrobbers?
Lets just clear the way and let them escape and hopefully they will not use violence.
Yes a bankmanager should think this, but the police is there to enforce.
(as long as he does his best not to hurt innocent bystanders)

If you let guys get away as soon as they start endangering peoples lives, then that is exactlly what they will start doing the next time they see police.

In this case the officer is absolutely right.
There most likely is a good reason why the guy does not stop.
Having a licenceplate does not mean anything if the car is stolen.
The way this guy is driving he is obviouslly willing to kill someone in order to get away.
For all the officer knows the driver has just abducted a child, that is now tied-up in the back.
It would be grossly irrisponsible not to try and stop him.

That would just make a dog chasing it more terrible.

That's what a radio and additional units are for. It's not up to one wannabe Bruce Willis to escalate the issue by way of a dangerous pursuit. Should he get to walk? Absolutely not, but technology and assistance should be used to apprehend him.
Would the guy be inclined to run as fast or endanger others if he were not being chased at high speed? If he's already decided his best option is to run (for whatever reason) then the likelihood of him eventually pulling over, dismounting the bike and putting his hands up seems far off.

I lost a good friend years ago due to this very thing. Local-Yokel cop in a town where nothing ever happens decides to pursue a speeder. Speeder was going about 60-65 in a 35 (rural town with these 'traps' everywhere) BUT, once he notices Johnny law on his ass, he floors it. Speeds get well over 120...meanwhile, my good friend is coming home with his fiance from a Fireman's Carnival after having just returned from the Navy. Pulls off the exit ramp to be completely blindsided by the speeder. My friend died instantly, his fiance was hospitalized for quite some time. The cop saw nothing wrong with chasing the guy to slap a traffic violation on him and was never charged for his role. The speeder was only slightly injured, had some fines and probation, but was never charged with anything other than traffic violations.

All because the officer was doing his "job"...yeah right.

RIP Dale

I'm sorry for your friend, but it's not the cop's fault the guy broke the law. Why not blame the criminal, instead of the guy who risks his life every day trying to uphold the law.

I agree, but it IS the cops fault for escalating it and chasing someone for a few miles and over a blind hill.
