I wonder what an LEO violating a no-chase policy would face. Probably depends on what they are alleged to have caused by violating that law.


Stay tuned!

For my part, the symmetrical coordination of the police in the OP video is impressive. I felt safer just watching it.

Of course, I'm old enough to remember last summer...when I presume the size and danger of the undertaking (protecting private property and citizens) was somewhat more pronounced than the game of Two-Hand-Touch Scooter Push and the police didn't seem all that interested in symmetrical coordination (or were told not to be interested).

Also, it's perfectly normal to consent to police commands. It doesn't matter what they say, it's right. And because they're actually very special humans, subject to none of the foibles that the rest of us are, we really should offer our gratitude and compliance to them, no matter the circumstance. The Police Robots are gonna be great!

Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, I prefer the quasi-Sheriff model wherein the LEO has a level of discretion that permits them to make decisions (that's right, be judge) wherein, they may choose to let something pass. In fact, this is the way some LEOs operate; however, my guess is that disciplinary action for not doing things by the books is more automatic than ever before and using judgment instead of checking boxes probably endangers retirement or benefits. In any event, I find the idea of police, as individuals, needing to be bonded to be somewhat compelling.

Oh. And lane-splitting. That should be everywhere allowed.
