Two of my former co-workers had a son (innocent bystander) killed in one of these things. He didn’t see them coming.

YEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHAAAAAWWWWWWWW!

Haven’t seen a good car chase in a long while.

FoxNews used to show them almost weekly, but quit when a few ended in disaster.

Ever since the Supreme Court decided the police could not shoot fleeing felons, everybody runs. The number of pursuits has increased exponentially.

Every once in a while one of these clowns gets away, but not too often.

I'd support the use of a .50 (Barrett or Beowulf) fired from a helicopter into the engine block. A couple to a hand full of rounds will stop most vehicles in short order.

Usually you see them crash the stolen SUV, run off into the bushes while trying to hike up their shorts, and the angry groin-biting police dog follows.

Every time I see one of these chases it reminds me of the old arcade video game, Chase HQ.

All the sudden I get an urge to sing:

Up on the roooooooof.

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof)
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof)

911? Uh, there’s a guy on my roof and he is brandishing a gun.

Do you know him?

No, never seen him before in my life.

[I can hear the calls 911 may be getting right now.]

Especially with police forces using helicopters. You’re not going to out run a helicopter, unless you stolen a lambo or something similar.

I thought there was a case in May that the supremes said they could shoot a person fleeing in pursuit because the car was a deadly weapon.

There are 9 news coppers, several cop choppers, in excess of 200 cops in the area, dog teams, swat teams, a dozen fire trucks, a fleet of paramedics, LAPD lunch trucks are serving lunches for all. They are in the process of setting up a stage, microphones and those in the makeup trucks are quite busy.

The news conferences will be for those running for office, and those involved in current political campaigns.

Who will be on camera and speak is currently being debated off camera near the command post.

Media scrips are quickly being written by multiple departments spokespeople for the afternoon news. All in an attempt to thank everyone involve as they ready to their back slap fest.
