A good idea for fleeing drivers

https://youtu.be/RQdA–AznCI

Instead of listening to the crim-huggers over fleeing drivers perhaps we should look to overseas jurisdictions for how they deal with them.

Like Thailand:

A dramatic video of a police chase in Thailand finally ends after an officer decides he has had enough and opens fire on a speeding car.

The hot pursuit is captured by a cop riding a motorbike with a helmet camera.

Several officers join him in a frightening chase before they burst the fugitives’ wheels and the car skids to a halt before the squad runs in to make the arrest.

At the beginning of the footage the policeman with a helmet camera joins a chase where a driver is attempting to escape from the law by speeding away in a car.

The fugitive hurries down a narrow street in the countryside before turning onto a main road.  

Lights flashing the cop approaches the car, which has already taken damage, as the driver tries to make a U-turn on the road.

Fed up that the fugitive is refusing to give up the Thai officer looks down and draws his pistol.

He walks over and fires at the wheels blasting loose one of the trims that then rolls down the road.

As a line of officers on bikes, cars and trucks fly past a man in a blue shirt, presumably another cop, chases after the driver, but comically on foot.

The video then cuts to later on in the chase. This time the cop rides right up alongside the vehicle, lets off a flurry of bullets and bursts the front wheel.

Still mobile the driver takes a dangerous turn down a gravel track and kicks up a trail of dust before coming to an abrupt stop.

Footage then captures officers surrounding the car and pinning down the driver who had given up and got out.

The fugitive is revealed to be a man wearing a white t-shirt, and he also appears to have an accomplice.

We could even do this as a private-public partnership with a media company, which live streams these chases.

Perhaps we could even roll in Lotto or the TAB to take bets on the time it takes to apprehend the offender?
