There was no upside to a high speed chase against a bike and instead of a bike going to fast you have a cop going to fast and going through traffic lights at greater risk to the public than if he had just let him go and either took the plate info and followed up, asked for assistance of other officers in the other direction they were headed to, etc. Yes, the guy lived and died by the sword, and perhaps it is in the end a good solution to a bad person, but it is STILL WRONG.
The cop is not the judge, Jury OR the executioner.
I recently had to call our county Sheriff to complain about one of his deputies driving through town, no lights or sirens right after school, with kids walking on the sidewalks, of at least double the 30mph limit. He couldn't tell me what the call was about then, but said he would look into it. He called me back a day or 2 later and thanked me for my call, and that the incident did not call for that speed in town, and that the deputy had been reminded of the proper procedures.
I sticking to my thought IT WAS WRONG
