Police chase policies

Let’s stop innocent bystanders from injury or death by having our police departments update their police pursuit policies. There were three recent police chase fatalities in the Kansas City area. One killed an innocent 17-year-old bicyclist.
This could have been prevented. I’m asking Mission Mayor Laura McConwell and Police Chief Randal Wilson to meet with other mayors and police chiefs in the surrounding area to discuss a safer police pursuit policy.
Kansas City, Mo., has recently changed its policy, but this is just the beginning. All area cities need to come together to make our streets much safer.

What were the officers in pursuit of when that 17 year old was killed?

Be serious. You have to realize just what a huge problem this is in Mission.

Make the streets safer for who? Or is it "whom"?
