Pursuit suspect sought

Thursday, December 20, 2007

Authorities are searching for Brazil resident Mark Rissler.

Rissler is considered a dangerous fugitive for his involvement in a traffic stop that led to a pursuit Thursday morning that ended in an accident involving Brazil City Patrolman Kenny Hill.

"Rissler showed no regard for the officers' safety (or the passenger in the car) when he initiated the pursuit," Captain Dave Archer said. "Rissler is considered very dangerous."

Wanted on an arrest warrant for a probation violation on drug charges, Rissler, 20, presented his driver's license to officers at the time of the traffic stop.

To report information about Rissler's whereabouts, contact the Clay County Sheriff's Department at 446-2535 or the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

Another wreck involving a chase.... think it may be time for a no chase policy

I have a Bachelors in Criminology and Criminal Justice and a few more degrees and know that the no chase policy would not work, people would just start running from police every time they get pulled over. I hope they get this guy, he is very dangerous to society and needs to be locked up, period.

That's right....continue to place the blame where it doesn't belong, on the police. A no chase policy? Why not just initiate a no law policy and see where that leads. Just look around at the downwards spiraling of society, and imagine a world without laws. There'd be alot more wrecks/deaths than the few resulting from car chases. Why not open your doors to every meth head and give him/her all your possessions for what's yours will be his/hers without question!
