Donít forget itís a policemanís job for money, he want to get home to his family after work. The criminals are driving for their freedom, probably high on something and couldnít give a toss.

Unlike the American's. There is a video of US police officer PIT'ing a suspect at over 100mph.
PLEASE NOTE - I have not linked the video to this as the suspect didn't make it. If you do search for this on youtube, please be aware you are seeing someone die.
There are several.

Sadly yes, 'Pit at 109mph' gets the video I was looking at.

AGAIN - The suspect died. Viewer discretion advised.

It wasn't the PIT that killed him, but the subsequent impacts pure chance that the police car landed on it twice. The State Trooper involved walked from it :o

The full video gives a much better context than the two minute clip.

PITing a vehicle, at any speed, tends to be a last resort, and isn't a decision that's necessarily made by the offficer that does it, there is usually supervision responsible for the whole pursuit.

If he'd have been in a Mazda they'd have never caught him.

Knowing the US's level headed approach to such things, they probably send a missile after the car if they couldn't catch it.

The police should stop cooperating in these pointless trailer trash shows as it makes them look

a) Incompetent
b) Arrogant
c) Too risk adverse

All this makes it too easy for the crims to run rings around them, and even if they do get caught, they will have the knowlege they will get a 14 day suspended.

If that's the way they portray themselves, then it must have a ring of truth.

about the punishment leniency i totally agree. once caught they should be made culpable & pay for the total cost of the chase & all consequences entailed. when a helicopter is launched i believe that alone costs £ 6k

I imagine lots of cases got dropped by the CPS when Covid started
not wanting to send criminals to jail in case of covid outbreaks

That's why the full pursuits are generally a better perspective.

Plus....if some brain dead twonk decides to reverse his stolen 4x4 into a police car, he should be made to pay for the damage or, failing that, serve extra time.
