Man clocked at 142 mph

And we wonder why police have such grudges!!! I thought this was interesting, especially considering he is a City Employee...

ORANGEBURG, N.Y. - A child-welfare worker was clocked at 142 miles an hour on his motorcycle while leading police on a two-state chase, authorities said Thursday.

Sean Virgo's wild ride allegedly started in Orangeburg, where he was pursued by New York state police.

When he arrived in neighboring New Jersey, Palisades Interstate Parkway police picked up the chase, They arrested Virgo as he tried to make a U-turn on a grassy median.

Virgo, 34, of Ossining, an emergency children's services investigator for the New York City Administration for Children's Services, was charged this week with eluding police and first-degree reckless endangerment.

He was being held on $20,000 bail in the Bergen County jail in New Jersey.

Wow, a two-state chase, it's a good thing no one was hurt. I thought LEO's called off chases once they reached a point where public danger outweighed the infraction, assuming speeding (initially).

Also, what was this dude thinking? He his paid to look out for the welfare of children. I am sure that coorelates to the public in general as well.

I have never seen it in writing where officers can't chase you after a certain speed due to public safety. I want to say it's true, however I just can't fully believe it until I see it in writing.
I still run if I damn well know I have a chance at it. Which tends to be almost everytime I ride!

I'm supprised the guy had enough gas in the tank to run two states. I myself always fill up my tank whenever I feel like I may have to make a run for it. There's times when I will only put a gallon in the tank.

I always wonder in these so-called "chases" if the rider even knows its a chase. I know if they are evading and this and that they probably know, but if you are just cruisin at 150 or so and 4 cops are 5 miles back trying to catch up, you don't KNOW that you are eluding, you are just flying.
