This story most assuredly has more holes than a typical donut.

Or, it could be one of the many police departments around the country going to the new Police Cruiser Dodge Charger. Tall final gearing and an honest 350-hp. That puppy could give chase.

The motorcyclist assaulted an LEO and refused to obey him. This makes the motorcyclist (or anyone who would do such things) subject to immediate execution by an LEO. Also, the creation of extreme danger for bystanders by means of a high speed chase is irrelevant. Killing the odd citizen or two won't affect the department's revenues and it's highly unlikely that any bystanders will be important people (i.e. govt officials).



Where you been?

If I was a cop and a guy on a motorcycle ran me over and attempted to flee I think I'd be hard pressed to not shoot him right there.



However, I agree with you that since he managed to keep his cool enough to chase the guy down it is attempted murder to crash into a motorcyclist regardless of how much of a pr1ck the biker is.

I can't vouch for 145mph in a Crown Vic Interceptor, but i can vouch for 130, and it doesn't take that long to get there. Granted it's not a vette or ferarri by any means but it'll get to at least 130, and fairly smoothly i might add.

Most of the Chargers have the 250hp V6 though. And even the Hemis are still slower than new Mustang GTs.

It sounds to me that the motorcycle topped 145, not necessarily the crown vic? Maybe the MO headline is misleading.
