I go back and forth on LEOs engaged in "high speed' chases. If there is an obvious felony they need liberty (within reason) to go after the perp. If it is based on some misdemeanor offense, I really question it. The safety of the innocent are most important. Also, not to Leo bash, but I've personally seen them do dumb stuff around bikes. Even if there was no danger to others, cutting a bike off at any speed is equal to pulling a gun on the biker. Did the speeding violation warrant deadly force?
Oh, RIP to those that died.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
