An Unnecessary Death

It is rather brave of cops to give chase to criminals but I believe we should give them better training in order to reduce unnecessary deaths as in this sad case.
Any death of a policeman on duty should be mourned as they are actually looking after our security.

This guy was only 21 years old and I wonder what kind of pursuit training he would have received.
The story mentioned that the suspect "kicked his motorcycle" which indicated that the cop had gone too close to the suspect on the open road.

With 2 cops chasing they should have shot to wound the suspect after a warning shot in the air if he had refused to stop. At the time of the incident there would have been little traffic on the roads and the chance of a stray bullet injuring others would be very slight.
