Few things are funnier to me than the sight of bad people failing miserably at committing their crimes. I ran across this video on Youtube yesterday and it gave me a good laugh at a time when I really needed it.
File this one under “Life comes at you fast.” This guy had to have a screw (or two) loose to randomly attack a cop with an axe.
This police-involved shooting in Oklahoma City is some pretty scary stuff.
Once that gun came out, there was zero time to “deescalate” the situation. The only option was to shoot back and hope you get him before he gets you. That officer was lucky that the bad guy’s marksmanship skills were garbage. Having that tourniquet handy was pretty helpful too.
I saw this video on Youtube earlier today. I don’t have any of the backstory, but the dialog is really interesting.
These folks, especially the female who does most of the talking, don’t seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation they’re in. It’s as if they’re all in a video game and there are no real consequences to their actions. Until the crash. How do people get so disconnected from reality?
I saw this video the other day and it left me shaking my head. The lessons from this incident seem obvious. Keep your gun concealed. Use a proper holster. The waistband of your yoga pants don’t count. And maintain awareness at all times. This woman managed to failed in all three of those tasks. I guess she was out sick when they taught that stuff at the police academy.
Once upon a time, I used to work in retail loss prevention. I started out as a store detective catching shoplifters, then I advanced to LP manager where I was responsible for supervising detectives and conducting internal theft investigations. I was in that line of work for twelve years full time and two years part time. I’ve never really regretted my decision to move on to greener pastures, but with all that’s going on today, I’m even more certain I made the right decision.
How the hell do you handle swarms of people smashing display cases, loading up and running out the door? The only thing you can do is call the cops and wait for help to arrive. But these days it seems that help may not be on the way. And what would be the point? Prosecutors in a lot of these jurisdictions where this stuff is happening won’t even pursue the cases. It’s a sad state of affairs, to be sure.
Here’s an exciting car chase from San Bernardino County, CA that took place earlier today.
This was some pretty fancy driving. Dude threaded the needle a couple times. The one at 8:40 was especially close. Notice that you don’t see much of the cops. They were smart to hang back. Crowding a guy moving that fast through a busy highway would be too hazardous to the public, not to mention the cops and the suspect himself.
Our would-be Speed Racer would later thread the needle one time too many and clip a big rig, damaging the rear of the car. He eventually got off the interstate and bailed from the car. He was arrested later hiding in a house.
The moral of the story is that you can’t outrun the radio. I don’t care how fast your car is. If you don’t get killed, odds are that the cops are gonna get you.
This is a pretty cool story of a mom in the Lone Star State who doesn’t take kindly to anyone messing with her kids.
That’s one pervy weasel who probably wished he stayed home that day. And they should make that mom an honorary Texas Ranger.
The upstanding citizen the mugshot above is Katarina Vanfossen. Ms. V made news on Wednesday for ramming a stolen car into a sheriff’s deputy in Manatee County, FL. The whole scene was caught on video by a police helicopter.
Katarina is no facing an attempted murder charge, in addition to the charges she had already earned prior to hitting the deputy.
I’m not sure where this happened, but this car chase video is an interesting watch.
I love the way the dog starts whining when the siren goes on. Pup wants some action.
Dude thought he was clever enough to beat the cops with some quick reversals. I’ll give him some credit for effort, but he didn’t have enough car to get the job done. It’s not a coincidence that no one in The Fast and the Furious drove a Geo Prizm.
Did you notice that the guy was diligent about using his turn signal? Old habits die hard, I guess.
