In my opinion, as soon as a vehicle engages in pursuit, the police should authorize deadly force to stop them ASAP. There should be Apache helicopters available to gun down any vehicle engaging officers, as well as officers with high powered weapons to do the same. I can't imagine for a minute the angst at losing a family member (s) because some selfish SOB tried to make a getaway over a ticket or whatever.
On the other hand, having the bike taken away for popping a wheelie is draconian and would be akin to living in a communist or nazi police state. Not very American in my opinion.
