Effort to roll back changes to police pursuit laws in Washington state

As it stands now, the law prohibits officers from pursuing car theft suspects unless they have established probable cause that they committed a crime. If police witness a suspect commit a violent crime and then that suspect speeds away, they can pursue if the person is deemed dangerous enough. However, simply seeing someone driving a stolen car does not meet the standard for using force to stop them.
