Because its stupid to be on feet running and diving in front of a speeding atv maybe? It was ineffective, pointless and just made them look dumb honestly. Sorry, cops dont get paid enough for that lol.

I know most of you disagree but I personally feel these instances should allow for lethal force to be used to send a message to these punks. They could easily get innocents and bystanders hurt and couldn't care less about it.
Agree that they need to be ticketed and if necessary arrested.

Strongly disagree with your call for police violence. Not cool, man.

problem is they can't ticket or arrest them through conventional means. This stuff happens all over the country and 98% of them get away scotch free and do it again and again constantly endangering innocents and outrunning the police due to their superior agility and the ability to go off road if necessary.

Then Biker gangs? don't get me started:

These kind of people have absolutely no regard or concern for innocent or civilian life and the conventional means we have in place are plainly just not enough to stop a force like that.

Then law enforcement should step up enforcement using laws already on the books. I'm all in favor of more driving law enforcement, and this would be a fine place to start.

But I am strongly opposed to this:

We already have enough instances of police getting too trigger-happy. The last thing we need is more of that.

Okay but how do you suggest they really enforce it? These machines are easily capable of out maneuvering police enforcement.

Cameras and license plate detectors for starters. Police don't need to pull over the ATVs the second they see them.

In extreme situations cops might need to shoot out tires. But this could aggravate the riders and I don't recommend it except as a last resort.

No plates on most of these.

Remember the guy in the Range Rover in NY that got caught in the melee, he ran one over then they chased him down and he got banged up pretty good.

Most of these vehicle are stolen and they are not required to be registered because they are not street legal to begin with. They won't have tags.
