Exactly. At some point in school, maybe a week after the girls see the special Disney film about growing up, they could show a film of the Rodney King beating to everyone.

No pursuit policy reminds me of the old joke about British Bobbies. "Stop! Or I'll yell Stop again!"

Never have I arrested a pursuit suspect who told me, "I ran because I thought you couldn't chase me".
Knowledge of assorted agency pursuit policies is not within the realm of the feeble minds of criminals.
BTW, the California Highway Patrol chases until the bloody end.

When I lived in LA, oftentimes television shows were interrupted to broadcast a police pursuit in progress somewhere in the city. I used to wonder how on earth these cars could run and where exactly they were? Every time I tried to go somewhere there was nothing but bumper to bumper traffic!

Somehow, I don't doubt this at all.

But what's a criminal to do? Go to school, get a job, and earn a living? What's this country coming to?! grin

You should move to Venezuela. The Central Bank makes available special low interest loans to families where a member got kidnapped, to pay off the ransom. This is not a joke!

This is a video from the local Orlando news station of a car running from the law. Granted the cops gave up pursuit in busy downtown, but the guy didn't slow down at all. The news helicopter caught the whole thing on camera.
Ugly crash in a busy intersection. Thank God that nobody was killed.
