    Honestly, why run? In my experience police officers are more likely to give you a break if you simply comply. I don't condone him hitting the guy but I've done 60 in a 35 and got 5 mph over with the comment: "I'm glad you pulled over, most bikes just run".

    To bad just one wrong decision ended his life ! I live near LA and its almost a daily happening, people freak out and try to out run the cops.When you think about it there are so many news helicopters that even if the cops lose you in traffic they are always looking down at you. A few times I have seen people escape by driving into a covered garage.
    The days of the wild west are over when you could ride your horse out of town and just had to worry about cutting the telegraph lines as you left.

    As others have said, I don't condone the police officer's actions. The guy didn't deserve to die over this, but the rider chose to put himself at risk the moment the chase was on. If his death hadn't been caused by the police officer hitting him, it could've been any number of other things including running 2 red lights at 100+ mph into the side of a truck. Just a shame.

    He put himself at risk the moment he left the house without a helmet. I hate the tendency of cruiser/chopper riders to not wear proper headgear. You're risking the part of your body that is essential for daily function and you're also gonna get tinnitus without any protection from wind noise, God forbid you don't look cool....sorry for the rant lol
