Certain situations require the use of police motorcycles in high-speed chases, but going after a suspect on two wheels rather than using a patrol car is riskier, for obvious reasons.
However, Brazilian police forces are known for their determination when it comes to dealing with criminals, and while they might sometimes chose to deal with a problem in an unorthodox way, they sure know how to put an end to it.
Proof is provided by videos like this one, in which the officer risked his own life to pursue a criminal suspect through a slum in Rio de Janeiro, with several near misses and an accident waiting to occur on every turn, as his helmet camera reveals.
But how do you stop a bad guy in this situation, when backup is nowhere in sight? Ramming him might not be the obvious answer, yet this is exactly what this fearless officer did, making him surrender – but not before trying to make yet another run for it.
