High Speed Car Chase

There's a high speed car chase going on in Los Angeles as I speak.

Why do these guys run when they know for a fact, that
it's impossible to escape, and when they're eventually
caught, they'll be in much more trouble than had they
just stopped from the very beginning?

Nothing is Impossible!
well, it's not impossoble to get away.

one tactic would to drive the car into a tunnel or overpass and try to run off on foot, one would need at least five minutes before the first cops got their but a clever person can hide or make an escape in that time. In big cities one can just ditch the car run into a subway, change clothes and appearance quickly and taking a train home as the cops search for a different looking assailant.

best vehicle for eluding authorities...a motorcycle. A good tactic for car to motorcycle chases is to find a railway line (preferably in a rural area, away from the city) and run down the line (cop cars can't drive on tracks) motorcycles can easily skim the surface. of course one would know where the are and where they are headed, but escape is not impossible.

I've yet to see one get away, Sweety Pie, and I've seen lots on TV!

Ah, but escape is still not impossible.
Just highly improbable. The previous examples are good ones. Sometimes the cops have to back down because it is getting too dangerous for everyone involved; I've seen that.

Re: Ah, but escape is still not impossible.
True, but not always. I have seen where the helicopter is needed at two places at once; though the helicopter did make it to the second place, it was almost too late. They only caught him by good fortune.

Stupid Criminals get caught
you have to take into account 90% of criminals are idiots. much like amoeba, they will seek the path of least resistance...

I've seen an episode or two where someone did get away, one dude eluded four cars and a police chopper on a Ninja Motorcycle. By the way he ran I'd guess Ghost Rider was carrying a large consignment of heavy narcotics or had some serious warrants out for him.

Heck I've outrunned many a cop in my day and can proudly say I got away, even with them chasing me by car. One time I was in a car with my uncle and he dodged the cops by losing them in a condominium parking lot.

I tried to reply to one of your past comments, but it wouldn't work. Let me see if it works now!

Meth, yes.
Other drugs would do it, too, as would adrenaline and hope.

Re: Meth, yes.
Aha! Now I see! :o)

Re: Meth, yes.
You may have seen a lot of TV, but what shows do you watch?
Apr. 27th, 2007 04:44 am (UTC)
Yeah. What you said.

How about stupidity? There seems to be plenty of that going around now days.

Re: Second try at this post
Heck yeah! If I were hailed down by a cop, I'd come to a screeching halt! If he's say jump, I'd REALLY ask how high! I'm no dummy! :o)

So what do they have to lose??....drive on!

As Forest so eloquently put it...
Stupid is as stupid does.

Re: As Forest so eloquently put it...
I just can't imagine what possesses them to run in the first place! Even they KNOW there's nowhere to hide!!
Apr. 28th, 2007 12:37 pm (UTC)
That is because nobody ever thinks their going to get caught don't ya know :o)
Apr. 29th, 2007 10:03 pm (UTC)
They should watch Fox News like I do, and then they'd never run, 'cuz nobody gets away!
Apr. 30th, 2007 05:19 am (UTC)
you know Sunshine I am starting to think you may work for Fox news heheheeee....well if you where the one chasing me I would let you catch me ;o)
Big Smile!!!

I think they figure if they're gonna go, they might as well go out in style. Many of these people have arrest warrants anyway.
Apr. 29th, 2007 10:07 pm (UTC)
Yes, but don't they realize that by running they'll only accumulate MUCH more time behind bars, because they ran and caused so much mayhem in doing so?!

Poor stupid people! I kinda feel sorry for them.
