If you want to have an "event-centric" discussion, post a link to the event. If you want to talk about "what the law says you can do", first understand that the law is there to tell us what we cannot do. Hence the absence of a "law" saying pursuit of a known felon is legal does not make it illegal, quite the opposite is the case.

Is this is the incident you are referring to:

If so, then it is possible that the line of legal action may have been crossed. We were not there, and we do not have the "strangers" side of the story. Did they see the known felon point a gun at them? Bottom line is we do not have the whole story.
