There's no way that a high speed chase can be justification for this.
Think about it, he was on a bike. First of all, everyone who's ever had a bike, ever, has taken it over 100. It's easy and exhilarating, so we've
all done it.
Here's a fact, motorcycles have license plates too. Why on EARTH would MULTIPLE police officers take a situation that is a sub-1000 pound vehicle
going over 100mph, and turn it into a bike PLUS all their cars going that fast? Get his plates and send a big ticket or court summons to his house.
What's he going to do on the bike, crash into a pedestrian? That's really the only risk, even if he crashed at that speed he'd only kill himself.
Do any of you actually feel like your life would be "at risk" if a motorcycle went past your vehicle quickly? Even if it crashed into your car, do
you really think your life would be in danger? The guy was really only putting himself at risk.
The cops greatly escalated this situation by joining in his speed frenzy. They increased the situational risk, in my opinion, by entire orders of
magnitude. You went from a fast bike to a fast bike, multiple cars, sirens, traffic stoppages, etc.
In my opinion, a great deterrent for this type of behavior would be for kids like this to be greeted by a nice 700 dollar ticket in the mail a few
days after their joyride. You can't run from a ticket in the mail.
Shame on these officers, Cops need to focus more on the WHY of the laws than the WHAT.
