Must have seemed like a good idea, at the time

Posted in Videos by 200

The following video of a police pursuit of a motorcycle which reached speeds of 150mph in Sweden. The motorcyclist has a female on the back of the bike during the pursuit. After a few minutes it manages to break free of the following unmarked police Saab, only to crash into a barrier.

The rider was killed, the passenger got away with minor injuries. (you don’t see the crash)

The footage is from Sweden.

    Here, of course, you cannot pursue motorcycles. In this case that might have ben a good thing if the motorcyclist was still alive. From his original riding, before the pursuit began, I suspect that he was heading for the morgue anyway.
    Criminals are well aware of our pursuit policy and use it to their advantage.

    No sympathy at all for the rider. Another fool removed from the gene pool.

    The other motorists appeared to yield to the lights and music.
