That poor telephone pole.

Rookie mistake to leave the siren on during high risk stop. Unable to communicate commands, damaging officers hearing in front of patrol vehicle. Should be automatic habit to kill the siren as you are coming to a stop, just like removing your seat belt is.

It's the use of stop sticks that bothers me. In this video, you can see the officer who tossed the sticks in front of the perp's car was standing in the curb lane and the perp could have swerved and run him over. I think you have to question the continued use of a tactic that killed over 26 LEO's nationwide last year. Glad no officers were hurt in this chase.
