“No, because it’s a danger to others on the street. But, the police are the ones in that situation and have to make that decision whether they are threatening or not threatening. But, if they know they’re not, they should probably use caution and not use the high speed.”

MaryAnn Haughton, Mount Vernon

“How do they know they’re not dangerous? I don’t like them being controlled that much. I think, especially in our area where there are so many issues that are so serious, I think they should be given a little more leeway.”

Patti Hale, Howard

“That’s a loaded question. If the person is non-dangerous, a high-speed chase isn’t necessary because you’re putting other people in danger. But, how do the police know if someone is dangerous? It should be up to their discretion.”

Chad Tusing, Mount Vernon

“No, because it’s dangerous for everybody else, people on the streets, people in cars, people walking. If it’s not a kidnapper or they aren’t shooting at the cop, they shouldn’t chase at high speed.”

Bill Batt, Apple Valley

“If they do that, it should only be in the city limits. Other than that they should call the Highway Patrol or the sheriff to take over beyond the city limits. Rather than chasing people like that, they ought to spend more time in the streets here where the drugs are so bad.”

Al Rine, Mount Vernon

“No. Why put everyone else at risk for somebody that might have shoplifted? It doesn’t make sense.”

usan Brush, Amity
