    They could get a large foam block pit and make that an olympic sport, kinda like long jump. The ratings would skyrocket...

    But seriously, that had to hurt, I don`t understand how he just got up and started staggering around, perhaps he got up right a way before he had a chance to feel pain so to speak...

    WOW! All the cop haters come out! I it funny how quickly people are to side with the Bad Guy just because they hate cops.

    Lets put it this way. The guy on the bike robbed a bank and put the lives of others at risk, knowingly. He knowingly got on a street bike and sped off at high rates of speed! He knowingly refused to surrender to Police! By doing this the Bad Guy surrenders all reasonable expectations of safety.

    I just wish Law Enforcement here in the states could respond this way as well. However we have a drated up legal system that gives the criminals more rights then victims. A system where in this situation the Criminal could sue the Law Enforcement Agency and win an outstanding amount of money. All because he broke the law, put others in danger and got his ass handed to him in the process.

    So how do we respond to these types of things in the States? A lot of Agencies simply back off and let the suspect get away, not all, but a lot do.

    "They are bad cops who can`t get him legit so they settle for cheap antics"
    --------------------------------------------------

    Get him legit? This isn`t a drating game you twit. This is real life where people can die, and there isn`t a respawn timer like in your games! Law Enforcement did exactly what they had to do to stop the Bad Guy.

    Cheap antics? Have you ever seen the carnage a Motorcycle can do when it hits a car? At high enough speeds it can literally cut a drating car in half! Don`t believe me? Look it up!

    A Law Enforcement Officer put himself in a situation that could have easily killed him, to protect others before the guy on the bike could cause more damage! So by cheap I hope you mean "Someone willing to potentially give his life for the safety of others".

    drating kids...

    Hah, I was thinking the same thing soon as he hit the hood of the car.

    That, and something along the lines of a little voice going "whee", and then a sort of "splat" sound effect. ._.

    I admit that he was a criminal and speeding. He stole money that`s not really worth almost killing him. I believe there is a law in Canada that disallows police from chasing people on motorcycles over a certain speed because it will most likely end with the death of the motorcyclist. Throw a freakin spike strip.

    Wow owned!
    The criminals made a wrong choice so they deserver what ever the hell happens to them, its not like this robber was being forced to rob the bank, he chose to, he knew it was wrong, he knew what could happen, like all theif/murderers/rapiests, they all deserve the worst.

    Wouldn`t the force of a spike strip blowing the tires send the bike flying seeing how theres only 2 wheels?

    I actually dont know, this is a questions, not a sarcastic comment.

    In America, he`d sue the police department...the town, and the state and become a multi-millionaire. And the cop that hit him would either be fired or at the very least taken off street duty...thats not how you apprehend a suspect

    I must`ve missed something...

    1. How were there so many cops there?
    2. Why was there a crowd?
    3. How was the crowd "watching the dramatic events all day?"

    Did this guy have hostages in a bank or something? That`s the only answer I can think of. He finally decided to take the money, hop on a bike, and take off.

    No way the cops in the US could get away with that. They`d be sued and lose their jobs. Still, they got the jerk.

    They may have just been trying to get him to stop, thinking he`d prefer that to flipping over the car like that. Hard to tell if they tried to hit him or not with the editing.

    Of course with a hand grenade it would make sense to not give him the chance to stop and pull it out.
