When law enforcement pursue a suspect the number one priority should be the public’s safety. Unfortunately, as in the video below, safety is often put at low priority. Most ego driven officers love getting into high speed pursuits. It gets their adrenaline pumping and then when they get the vehicle stopped they usually finish off the adrenaline dump by pounding the suspect into the ground. In the video below, in East Cleveland Ohio, the officers are pursuing a stolen vehicle. They drive dangerously and call out the speeds lower than what they are traveling (so they can keep the pursuit going). One of the officers plays heavy metal music while in the pursuit, he get’s mad when his drink spills, and he even stops to refuel and gets back into the chase speeding to catch up with the other officers, so he can still get a piece of the action! When he spills his drink, he say’s “that was my drink you watermelon fuck!”, all while chasing the suspect. You can clearly see the mentality of this officer and this country does not need this kind of person with a badge . This is some of the most unprofessional behavior I have ever seen during a pursuit and it reminds me why I am so glad to be out of law enforcement.
Here is Rick from “Good Luck America” showing us the stupidity of this chase and making some excellent points. He is a former military and law enforcement veteran and he calls these clowns out for their behavior. Make sure to watch it all and see what you think .
