Moped criminals in London were fleeing police when a second police car came from the opposite direction. From what I can make out, the second police car was travelling at speed as it ended up flipping over, and the moped driver probably swerved last minute too as one criminal was injured and taken to hospital while the other was able to outrun the cops.

Do you think the second cops should have swerved out of the way? They would have caught both criminals if they rammed them head on or let the moped swerve and skid after falling over with the criminals getting roadburn. As is, it's not a bad outcome as they have one criminal in custody, but if one managed to escape (on foot!) then it's possible with the tactics used that both could have escaped.

It depends on the crime as well. If it's just petty theft or whatever, I wouldn't mind them getting away too much, but if it's a terrorist or a murderer, yeah run them over.
