Fatal collision

Police need new 'no chase' rules

This tragic accident in my hometown of Everett at one of the main intersections has really saddened me. I have now learned that a innocent woman has passed away from a accident involved with a speeding stolen vehicle trying to elude police. ("Mukilteo woman dies of injuries from car crash.") One question keeps nagging on me ... why chase?? Can any law enforcement personnel justify this loss by saying anything? Call me a passive liberal but why not if the speed exceeds say 20 over the speed limit you just ... wait for it ... let them drive away! I am sure the family that lost this mother/sister would agree. Do me a favor local law enforcement if my rig ever comes up stolen, let them go -- can get a new vehicle but a mom, wife , or sister -- there's not lots full of those!
