You should back off after the tap!

A lot to be desired in that stop including the PIT itself, vehicle posistioning after the stop, contact and cover and waiting for more officers before clearing the suspect vehicle. Glad no LEO's were injured. We learn from others. Thanks for posting.

In a properly done PIT the PITing car continues to push through the PIT, NOT, I repeat NOT back off. However, I dont see anything in this stop that was done properly.....:-( good example of how things go poorly some times.

That happened in Charlotte. FWIW, that was one of two chases to happen that day. Not sure if that explains the lack of city/county cars. It was on interstate, and that's NCHP's jurisdiction. They don't like to share either. Suspects were running from a B&E, stolen car. The usual. Full raw vid here.

uhhhhh woopsie?!?! even I know to follow through and the informal EVOC course I took a few years back as a NSCC Cadet taught me to follow through with the PIT, never tap and back. Its not like a weapons jam where tap and rack works, you gotta go all the way through
