Law and Disorder

Once again a riot breaks out in a community because of the police chasing someone according to this article.

As the father of one of the dead pointed out, you have to wonder whether the police chase was worth it. Two dead and a mangled car. If the purpose of the chase was to recover a stolen car, it didn't work.

Nevertheless, the Police cannot just sit back and allow car thieves to have their way.

The grieving man's son was engaged in a criminal act. He lost his life because of it. Rather than blaming police and getting them to change their procedures, should we not, instead, blame the criminal and educate others that the consequences of car theft can be fatal?
