Why cops leave too long to catch the high speed pursuit?

+4 votes

 

I felt very dither every time I see a gang of cops cars slowly follow the high speed criminal on the streets. I kinda enjoy watching it on the TV though it is dangerous. They follow that guy for long time all over the cities streets and freeways like some kind of ceremonies.
 
That's too long. Others can get hurt or die. Cops are getting paid for OT. Some TV stations even take frequent commercials break. As they are blocking the traffic anyway why not get that bad guy fast?  If I were a Police Chief, I would force my mob to catch that criminal right away.

It is sux. Pit maneuver only after the crook ran out of gas. I'm in LA.
