PO-PO, to chase or not to chase?

ABC7 reports on a high-speed chase that ended in a car crash in Melrose Park on Friday.

Would you want the police shooting at a stolen vehicle?

I heard a criminal justice professor advocate that high speed chases should only be authorized in situations when deadly force (shooting) would be authorized. The logic is that a chase has a significant probability of resulting in a bystander being killed by either the police or the vehicle being chased.
