“Under the policy, officers may give chase if they believe a person is committing or is about to commit a felony, a Class A misdemeanor such as domestic battery, or a serious traffic offense that could risk injuring others, such as drunken driving or street racing. Officers won't be allowed to chase people on foot if they suspect them of minor offenses such as parking violations, driving on suspended licenses or drinking alcohol in public. But they will still have discretion to chase people who they've determined are committing or about to commit crimes that post "an obvious threat to any person.”” So…..what’s the issue here? Seems like the officers are given an absurd amount of discretion as to what they feel may be a public danger and can basically ignore the policy if they wish.

Great. I'm sure they have better things to spend their time on than chasing down people who basically did nothing. Good call.

So they shouldn't stop major crimes such as school shooting because it's dangerous and they shouldn't stop minor crimes because it's not big deal... I'm confused, what police are doing there ?

In Chicago if you're black you got an open season pass to murder and rob all you want.

If they're running away from a simple contact, especially in Chicago, it's most likely because they have drugs, illegal guns, and/or warrants for previous crimes. But sure, just let them run away and commit more crimes, nothing bad will happen.

Any policy that increases misery in Femocrat-controlled cities is okay by me. Fuck them. Fuck Chicago. Let it burn.
