Let’s say you’re a gang unit investigator. In fact, let’s say you’re the lead gang investigator for your agency. And let’s say you’re on duty late at night and see a car full of junior gangbangers driving through your city. You know the driver has a suspended ops and the two guys in the backseat are on probation with a 6 p.m. curfew. You give chase but they manage to elude you.
