It would be interesting to see the entire low-speed chase, not just the aftermath.

There likely are damages to the police car, the bicycle, and the parked car. Who pays?

The police car was obviously moving at the point of impact, wedging the bike in tight. And, the seat is now wedged under the rear fender. If the cyclist hadn't been somehow ejected from the bike, he could have lost a leg.

This is like shooting a person to prevent them from entering a situation where they could potentially get shot.

Everyone is lucky there weren't severe injuries.
