GUESTMAT, YOU SAID WE LIVE

GUESTMAT, YOU SAID WE LIVE FOR THE EXCITEMENT OF A GOOD CAR CHASE AND THAT IS WHY THERE ARE 10 TO 12 CARS IN A CHASE? THE FIRST CAR IS THE 'PRIMARY' CAR, WHICH MEANS ALL THEY DO IS FOLLOW THE SUSPECT, THE SECOND CAR HANDLES ALL THE RADIO TRAFFIC. THE OTHER CARS ARE THERE BECAUSE THE CHASE WILL END AT SOME POINT, AND WHEN IT DOES WE MIGHT NEED BACKUP. WE HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE WE ARE CHASING, AND SHOULD THEY STOP AND PULL OUT A GUN, THEN WE CAN BE COMFORTED BY THE FACT THAT WE HAVE MORE. I HAVE BEEN IN A FEW CHASES, AND NONE OF THEM HAVE HAD 12 CARS, HELL WE ARE LUCKY IF WE CAN GET ONE OR TWO MORE CARS WITH US BEFORE THE CHASE ENDS. ON THE CHASES THAT I HAVE INITIATED I HAVE HAD NO CARS IN PURSUIT BEHIND ME, THE THREE CARS THAT WERE MY BACKUP GOT TO ME AFTER I HAD THE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY, AND THEY WERE A MIXTURE OF THREE DIFFERENT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES. AND WHOEVER MENTIONED SHOOTING OUT A TIRE OR ROADBLOCKS, JUST BE AWARE THAT THOSE ARE BOTH DEADLY FORCE APPLICATIONS. I AM TALKING ABOUT A ROADBLOCK WITH PATROL CARS PARKED IN THE ROAD, NOT A ROLLING ROADBLOCK. A TRUE ROADBLOCK IS NOT LAWFUL UNLESS DEADLY FORCE IS AUTHORIZED TO STOP THE CHASE. AND I AM NOT SURE WHAT AGENCIES YALL ARE SPEAKING OF, BUT MY DEPARTMENT PUTS SHOTGUNS AND SPIKE STRIPS IN EVERY CAR
